Part of Being Human...

I have to say.. I haven't found much motivation to write lately. I have been in somewhat of a slump these past few weeks. I've had a lot on my mind, and for some reason, that makes me so unmotivated to do anything. The past couple of days I have been revived at the thought of having my bible study tonight. I have definitely neglected my time with Jesus during this slump. I think I may just be overwhelmed at the thought of the things I must do and the places I must go. It's time for a vacation to really get away from all the stresses/day to day boredom and just fix my focus on the Lord. I have to admit it's been a little lonely too. Satan is trying to get at me. I need to make sure he doesn't have his way anymore. I have to stomp out that devil and reclaim the joy that only God can bring. That consistent joy that is present no matter what my circumstances may be.

Lord, forgive me for neglecting my time with you. I know that it's because I've taken my steady focus off of you and I've put them on what I don't have. I love you Lord. Help me to stay focused on you. Fill me with your spirit and help me to stay strong through this time when I'm doubting myself. Thank-you Lord for being my constant friend and for always being there. I love you Lord.

He knows...

Psalm 139
“O Lord, you have examined my heart and know everything about me. You know when I sit down or stand up. You know my thoughts even when I’m far away. You see me when I travel and when I rest at home. You know everything I do…You go before me and follow me. You place your hand of blessing on my head. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too great for me to understand!.” (vs. 1-3,5-6)

What powerful words! I know that so many Christians are disappointed and even fearful after the results of the elections last night. Don't fear friends. We have a God who has spoken. We have dedicated hours of prayer to this election and God's will has been done. Yes, there may be some tough times ahead for everyone, but that dosen't mean we should fear or be upset. God is on the throne and we have the victory in the end. God knows the bigger picture. WE must draw even closer to him and allow him comfort us and keep us under his wing. Take time today to spend a few or several moments with your creator. He wants to spend time with you. He created you to worship him. He wants us to lean all of our cares on him. ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR THE GOOD OF THOSE WHO LOVE THE LORD. It's time for christians to rise up and pray and stand up for what we believe in. We need to stand up now more than ever and be strong in our faith and in our convictions. WE will be attacked. God is bigger than all of this. Take heart. God is alive and well. He is working in all of this. We have the vicotory.

A friend sent me these verses and it's a call to accept the will of God and even to pray for those we don't agree with..

Check out this passage from Prov 24:21-22 (notice the play on “change”)

21My son, fear thou the LORD and the king: and meddle not with them that are given to change:
22For their calamity shall rise suddenly; and who knoweth the ruin of them both?

No need to fear..
