In this month in the past weeks, I have been following the Proverbs each day and found out one particular theme that jumps out at me as if it were the only thing written in the book: How the wise deal with rebuke as opposed to the fool.

In the Proverbs the fool comes in two parts, firstly as the person who is a rebel, any act against God, His laws or even those that the general public follow but are established by God; secondly as someone that is genuinely void of any wisdom, knowledge or understanding. Now depending on the context the word (fool) is used, it is either the one or the other.

During moments every now and then spent with my dad, arguments…

Peace that passeth all understanding

Sometimes hard decisions have to be made, but if we are truly seeking and following the will of God, He will give peace that passes all understanding. We as humans are limited in our understanding of Gods will and His direction, and sometimes we are confused and don’t know why somethting happened or why God is calling us to a certain action, but we know that with following the will of God comes the peace of God. and the peace of God is perhaps the closest we can get to experiencing the full and perfect will of God! Just wanted to encourage you in that! 🙂

Don’t be afraid to follow where God leads!
Blessings to you,

Ranting Session…

Haven’t posted in a while, as I’ve been busy readjusting to life at home again, done with Bible college. Ya know, it’s been harder than I’ve thought to readjust to being at home again! Not because I don’t love being at home, I do. But it’s been hard nonetheless. At Bible college I felt like I was preparing to do great things for God, learning so much new material every day, Bible talk every day, chapel/church every day, my life was revolved around God, around Scripture, and it was just crazy packed full of God. It was amazing. I came home, and it’s different. Now I catch myself feeling like I’m doing nothing for God, I’m no longer in school, paying thousands of dollars to learn about God, I’m not doing anything, I have found myself thinking. I have found myself dreaming about the next big thing I wanna do to better my relationship with God. But that’s exactly what I’m supposed to be doing right here right now, day in and day out, in the routine of work, of life, of family, of church, of fellowship. In the every day mundane things that I do I am to seek a better relationship for God. And here at home it is most definitely much much harder to focus on that because not everyone around you is high on Jesus! While at college I was excited to come home to start doing things for God, to start putting out everything I was taking in. And that’s exactly what I want to be doing. I realized today that even though I may not feel high on Jesus, I AM high on Jesus, because He is number one in my life and I want to glorify Him in all I do, even if I find my days somewhat boring. And even in our boring days, guys, we can be little lights in the lives of everyone around us! Be an encouragement to someone today, fire out an encouraging text to someone to let them know you’re thinking and praying of them, take the time to stop and chat for a while with someone you may run into, ask them how they’re doing, genuinely care about others.. these are some of the things I’m doing to make my life count even in the little things such as these. Okay, this has been a lot about me, I’m sorry. If it has been an encouragement to you at all I am beyond happy, if not, it was a nice venting session for me to get a few things off my chest that I’ve been feeling and pondering. So if there’s anything you can take out of this is that no matter what you do, we can always make it count, and we can always do everything, even the little things that might seem boring and useless to us, we can make them all count for eternity! That’s what I think Christianity in the every day life should look like, make everything count in the long run…as in the forever run! 😉  

 

Colossians 3:1-4  “Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.”

Give it up

Sometimes all it takes for us is just to give it up.

Two weeks ago I was home for a job interview- pretty much my dream job. Child care, they would provide for the training (which saves me a year of college and $6000), close to home, good pay, never on weekends, never past 6 pm. Sounds perfect to me! I thanked God for such a perfect job opportunity. So after the interview, I was told that I would be e-mailed about job positions, etc within a week. However, 2 weeks passed and after checking my e-mail 10 times daily for an answers, I finally prayed to God and told Him that FINE I would be okay, but really I had gotten my hopes up, and because I was disappointed it was hard for me to tell God to just show me wherever He wanted me. I have a lot of loans to pay off so a job when I go home is important to me! And so I prayed to God last night to just show me and reveal to me what He wanted from me because I obviously didn’t get this job. Well, this morning, I checked my e-mail, there were two e-mails in my inbox, confirming my position at this job, all that had delayed the confirmation was some things that didn’t get organized as soon as they had hoped. Praise God. That is my testimony to you for today!

What can we all learn from this?

Sometimes all it takes for us is just to give it up-

To hand our worries and cares over to God and know that He will provide. Had God told me this job was not for me, I would have moved on and God would have faithfully proven Himself to me in a different way! But God revealed His plan to me in His perfect timing. And you know what? It’s ALWAYS worth the wait!! It takes effort, and it takes us to trust God. Whatever you may be going through, don’t give up, keep faithfully trusting in Him, because He always has, always will be, and always is faithful to His own. Be patient, fellow believers, God will direct you and guide you in the way that you should go. He is faithful. Always. How Great is Our God!!!!

Psalm 37:4- Take delight in the LORD, and He will give you the desires of your heart.

Proverbs 3:5-6- Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.

God is so faithful it blows my mind!
