Galatians 5: 7
You were running well. Who hindered you from obeying the truth??
Okay, so I have been going too long between writing. While there is likely no one reading, I still sense the need to write. What keeps me from doing so? Distraction and laziness. I get caught up in the drama of life and the exhausting task of keeping track. I am not sure where along the way I got lost, but I did.
In light of this, I have made a decision. I need to SNAP OUT OF IT!!!! Whatever funk keeps me hidden in a cave, I have to renounce. Whatever lies I keep believing about myself, I have to debunk. Whatever is holding me back from doing as God asks of me, I have to repent.
So this is my task. I have had some hard lessons thrust upon me. Some I brought upon myself. Hurt, anger, bitterness, and pride have weighed me down. I can't live like that anymore. I can't keep pleading with God to take something from me that I refuse to let go. I am not doing my family, my friends, myself any favors by dwelling on things I can't change. I want to, but I can't make the accusers pay for their crimes. I don't have to live with the imposed punishment. I don't have to live like a slave, especially when it is slavery to men.
I am a child of the Risen King. I am a daughter of the Most High God. He promises that there is NOTHING that will change that. Nothing I can or can't do will change how the Father loves me. I am remembered and kept. I can no longer make a mockery of what Christ has done for me.
Isaiah 42: 6
I am the LORD; I have called you in righteousness; I will take you by the hand and keep you.
For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
I have to believe God and what He says is true about me. I have to believe God and the promises He says about how He will care for me. I have to care more about what God wants and thinks that what this world wants and thinks.
