I have been gone for a while I know! My mind was clouded and crowded with a bunch of stuff and I just called out to God and he reassured me that he will take care of everything that I have no reason to be worrying about anything. All we need to do is focus on the Lord and seek the kingdom of God and everything we need will be added unto us and everything we are going through will be put away for need not worry about to tomorrow because tomorrow will handle itself (Matt. 6:25-34). I have had some rough times and a lot of tears but I have dealt with it by calling out to God. I realize we cannot just open up the bible and decide to just meditate on the word of God just to say we did it. If we don’t continue to long for God to call out to him to earnestly seek him, what we do doesn’t matter. What is the sense of reading if we are not reading to not only learn more about our God but also just to be in communion with him. We should feel the holy spirit working in us when we are reading and praying and doing all that we do unto God. Whether its meditating on his word or reading devotionals or listening to a sermon we don’t do it because we have to we do it because we want to and because we long for our heavenly father. In knowing that the power of god is working in your life you can complete the tasks that God has given you. Now for a long time I have been contemplating how I am going to tell my mother that I am married and how I am going to leave he house in peace. And thru reading devotionals and scripture I thought I would gain the answer but I realized I was not calling out to God and I thought the answer would just appear. It wasn’t until today that i actually called out to him. Asking him to just relieve me of my burdens and give me answers to the issues in which I was troubled with. I got the answer and I plan on completing the task at which God has made clear to me will be no easy one but nothing is easy and this life in Christ is about long suffering and sacrifice. I watched a video of Paul Washer who is a pastor and he probably does not sound anything like most american pastors today. It was through him that God gave me the message to earnestly seek Him. He wanted me to realize that I can’t just expect things from him but that I must yearn to be with him and that I must not linger and dibble dabble in scripture to try and figure things out on my own. How will we see how he is working in us if we try to do everything without him? It doesn’t make sense. I want to post the video so that you can receive the same message that I have. I pray that you continue to diligently see God and be in communion with him.
