In A Growth Process....




A person can have a positive outlook on life, but going to church does not make them grow. There has to be a need or a desire within a person to want to grow stronger in the Lord, and this occurs when you want to build a stronger relationship with God. Simply put.....this is Maturity. 

Healing is so important......there are wounds from childhood that we carry into adulthood, that allows us to suffer from personal insecurities. 

There are some things in us that we must be honest about. Why are we fighting?........What are we so afraid of losing?........Truth is were not even in control. We've become so selfish that we have allowed our sinful situations to be passed onto others. What we fail to realize.....in the midst of all this, God comforts us in the sin and helps us to see who we really are. 

As messed up as we are, God can use us to help with someone else....

Yes we mess up.........but we learn.... 

From the mistakes...........were able to teach others....

From the pain........we are able to uplift, provide comfort and inspire..........

Yes we hurt...........but in time we heal......

If your not doing what God wants you to do, YOU are blinded. God does not want to beat us to hear His Word.  Ungodliness is a waste.......God wants us to be clean and pure for His Will, so what does God have to do to move YOU? 


We are still learning and maturing in some areas......it's a process, but never be ashamed for mistakes made during growth.~ Sass~

Are You Glorifying God?



Are You Glorifying God?

When we say that we are glorifying God,  we are truly saying that all praises and honor belongs to Him. Our thoughts, our words, and our actions are examples that tell others who God is to us. 

We bring God glory by the way in which we live our lives, which should be according to His standards. When we live life this way, it is an example of how the impossible is possible. It shows others who do not know Him, exactly what is possible when living for Him. 

Those things that they could not imagine conquering or controlling, those lonely and desolate times, unbearable pain and suffering that they experience, all these things should look differently in the life of a person who knows God. Your response is different, your attitude is different, your demeanor is different, your character is different, YOU are different. 

God gets His glory when others see Him take impossible obstacles that you perceive to be impossible and turn them to your advantage. On;y the Creator of all things can do this, and we glorify Him with how we live our life.

In short, God gets the recognition for your life, not you. It is the God that is in us that allows us to walk in true divine spirit. It is God that speaks to us and gives the courage, strength, wisdom and knowledge to be used for His will and to fulfill His purpose. We don't just owe Him the glory, we owe Him our life.

The Harden Heart

T


The Harden Heart 

When you harden your heart, you are unable to receive the spiritual fruit that you are in need of to grow. You have blocked out and shut down anything that even comes close to your heart, that you miss out on the things that are beyond important in life.
 
When our hearts are harden we lose spiritual sensitivity of God, and when He speaks to us we can not focus on what He has to say. We become spiritually blind and deaf, so we can't perceive it.....we can't hear it......we can't see it.....
 
If we respect God.....we must respect people. Relationships and friendships filled with love break up because the hardness of the heart and no relationship will work until that personal relationship with God has been repaired.
The heart that you have will be the same unless the heart changes. The heart that needs to be of flesh.....will be of stone. The heart that needs to be filled with warmth.....will be ice cold.
 
A heart that is not right can not reach others nor God and He can't move in a hard heart. When there is difficulty with an internal heart......the external reflection is dim and dark and it does not glow.
 
A harden heart that is desperately wicked can only be cured ultimately by the grace of God. We must allow God to do the spiritual surgery that is needed, to take out the stone and add some flesh.

If you keep doing the same things that you did last year.....nothing will change for YOU this year.
