Discovering what love is one day at a time
I recently reposted an article by another author that was truly thought provoking... on my facebook page. here is the link to the article: http://www.jasonlsanders.com/2016/06/02/christian-singer-comes-out-of-the-closet/
I have been thinking about all of the craziness that is happening in our world today, and I think it is truly important for us to look at our own hearts in response to our nations upset.
In our culture today, everything is pretty much acceptable but no one is really held accountable. Yet according to the Word of God everyone is loved and everyone is held accountable. God’s love can’t not love. His love includes accountability.
Pride is a roadblock to the unending supply of God’s grace. Pride sets us up as enemies to God.
Pride is a complainer. It sounds like “why me?” Pride flaunts, sets itself in the highest position, and says,
to God, that "your word is nice…but it doesn’t really work for me, or apply to me."
There are many more examples to what pride may look or sound like… but I think we all can relate to
having an issue with pride. (If you say you cannot relate, that is pride…just saying)
Have you ever felt like life would be easier if you could just know what was going to happen next?
What if by seeing ahead you could just prepare for the hard stuff or avoid it completely?
Reality is, we don’t know what is going to happen next, and daily we are confronted with situations and circumstances that we have no control of the outcome. But the truth is we do have control over our own response.
I saw a quote the other day that said “You may be alive…but that doesn’t mean you are living.” As I chewed on it that one song by Guns N Roses went through my head… It goes something like this…
“When you were young & your heart was an open book, you used to say live and let live, You know you did(x3), But if this ever changing world in which we live in… Makes you give in and cry, Say live and let die…”
I have been married to my wonderful husband for 22 years. We have two boys ages 18 and 13.. This blog is somewhat of a journal and attempt for me to keep a purposeful perspective on life as a whole.
