Hello everyone…and a very happy and blessed Sunday to you all! I hope that your day is off to a great start…and that you will experience God, in all you do…in this brand new day!
As I’ve been looking back this morning, on this long journey that God has been walking me through for many years…I see moments of deep pain and heartache…a storm that seemed endless, as the rain poured down upon my soul; but then a time came, when the sun began to reveal itself once more to me…and it seems that as each day passes…the sun gets brighter…even through the darkness that attempts to overtake my soul…and why…because I have not only discovered a better day; but I have truly found the light that can shine in the midst of anything I face…the light of Jesus Christ.
One of the Bible verses that have truly kept me disconnected from the past; so I could remain deeply connected with Christ; is found in Galatians 4:9…and we read… “But now, after that ye have known God, or rather are known of God, how turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements, whereunto ye desire again to be in bondage?”
I have come to see over the years; that remaining committed to people…who only keep me locked up in the bondage of the past…only ends up keeping me disconnected from the future…and all that God longs to do within my life. I have lost many relationships over this…because they choose to remain stuck in the muck and mire of the past, rather than allowing Christ to set them free.
As I look back on my past…and where I am now; it’s so different…like night and day…and I’m realizing more and more within my life; that I cannot be committed to others over God…for if I do that; then all the steps that have taken me forward in life…would all be in vain.
Sometimes I wonder why we become so committed to relationships here on earth, over a lasting relationship with God. Seems like we find it to be more difficult to walk away from people…but yet, we are the ones who tend to walk away from God.
One thing I have truly come to discover within my own life; is that I can trust God…because of all I’ve watched Him bring me through. Also…I know that His love is real…and it’s a love that doesn’t break my heart or abuse me. I guess we become so caught up into tradition; that we allow tradition to control our lives. I’m not saying that we all should leave family and friends, for no reason at all…or even stop loving them or praying for them. I’m just saying that we seem to find it easier to remain committed to an abusive relationship or a dysfunctional past…over a true and loving God…One who longs to love us and bless us in a real way.
In the past, I have had family members abuse me and lead me into a dysfunctional life…along with not keeping their word, which has greatly affected my life, when it comes to trusting others; but when I put them on a scale with God…I truly see so much more with God…and He truly does satisfy my soul.
No matter what we face…and no matter what hurts us deeply; we don’t have to remain stuck within the muck and mire of that despair, when there is a God who longs to lift us up and away from those hurtful moments, into arms of true love…a love that is pure and flawless…a love that will never give up on us…and a love that will always be there, to shelter and care for us…no matter what we may face.
As we walk through this brand new day, I pray that we will experience the perfect love of God…a love that will hold us close to Him, during the trying times…and a love that will always keep us distant from bondage!
Well…time for me to enjoy this brand new day that the Lord hath made! I truly hope and pray that your Sunday will be its best! Take care & I will see ya soon!
Many…many blessings on your day!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
