Deuteronomy 6: 5 MSG
“Love GOD, your God, with your whole heart: love him with all that’s in you, love him with all you’ve got!”
Albert Einstein said, ‘There are only two ways to live your Life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.’
Matthew 7: 13 – 14 MSG
Being and Doing
“Don’t look for shortcuts to God. The market is flooded with surefire, easygoing formulas for a successful life that can be practiced in your spare time. Don’t fall for that stuff, even though crowds of people do. The way to Life – to God! – is vigorous and requires total attention.”
I have reached a place in my Life that I want to be in the right place at the right time; I want to manoeuvre through all the difficulties with success. I have decided to place myself under the headship of the Lord Jesus Christ, and I am learning what He wants me to do right now. I am asking that the Holy Spirit will carry me forwards. My greatest fear in Life is that I would disappoint the Lord Jesus. I know I could be the same as every other woman. Worry about fashion, worry about my clothes, go partying and dancing. So I need to choose Life or death. Which do you prefer? But that’s not important to me presently, and I’m not interested in that sort of thing. I am grateful the Lord has accepted me as His child. It’s about am I serving God, or am I living a godless life.
The way God wants me to live is by reading His Word. And here is my problem, I know what I’m supposed to be doing, but I often have a hard time doing it. I have slipped with discipline in my own Life, and I am struggling to get this back on track.
Father, blessed is those who hear the word of God and keep it. Lord he who keeps Your commandments abide in You, and He in him. And by this, we know that He abides in us, by the Spirit whom He has given us. In Jesus Name, Amen
