I expected at the end of the fast all my spiritual issues would be gone and I was going to come out on fire and fully activated. When that didn’t happen I lost it. Like, by it I mean everything…
Lastly, Judges says “After that generation had been gathered to their ancestors, came another generation who did not know the Lord”. “How can believe if they have not heard” (Romans 10:14). Open your mouths. Stop pretending that you’ve always had it together, stop hiding your testimony. A generation is depending on your truth.
So my truth. Where was I? Well, I had just lost my best friend and a guy that I liked. Half my “friends” went with them. My home was wrecked and I had a black eye ……
Wouldn't it be easy if right as we were about to give up, the music changed and we received some external trigger to let us know the tides were about to change in our favor? Then maybe we wouldn’t be so quick to give up….but life is not a movie
I can remember being alone with my son and being so depressed that I only had the energy to get him to preschool. Afterwards I would come home and crawl in bed until it was time to pick him up …..The problem that we have is that we often can’t see our end from our beginning. I looked at my situation. I looked at my food stamp card and my kids and my choices and I thought there was no way. I probably figured that even if there was a God, he had moved on to people who were more willing to help themselves because I didn’t have the will
sometimes, it’s easy to justify it as a personality trait, but its unprofitable and it needs to be let go of if I want to grow to where God wants me to grow.
God said he would comfort the broken hearted, HE SAID he will release me, and he said he would trade BEAUTY for these ashes
IS IT WORTH IT? YOU SHOULD WORK IT.
I was so convicted for all the times I allowed myself to do wrong because I knew I had grace. I allowed myself to say this, or do that, OR DRINK THIS because I knew I had a forgiving God
on my own strength and I am failing. Thankfully I know that when I am weak he is strong. So, I need God. I need the God that I believe is absolutely real, to come into my situation
