Listening to: Rebecca St. James – 11 – All Around Me – –

What can you do? Clichés are all around us! But whatever, it does not mean they are wrong to use. I try to avoid them, but when I am excited, they just happen. So, if this is all a bunch of pat Christianize I am sorry.

God is good, and His love cannot be fully understood, this is my conclusion. Not until perfection comes and we enter into His full glory will we truly understand the compassion of our Lord, the miracles of his spirit, and the love of our father. This God that we say is amazing, awesome, graceful, merciful, all knowing, is far greater than any of that, he is simple yet complex. The full understanding of His being, is so amazing to me, recently so much of my time is full of adoring who my God is, who he is to me, what he does for me, and what he is calling me to do, to be, and what I have done. He absolutely intrigues me; there is nothing more intriguing than just pondering who he is.

More and more I feel Him inside me, working in me, speaking to me, and I can just walk right with Him when I choose. That is the key to everything recently in my life. When I was young in the faith, I lived by experiencing Him, letting Him come to me. Now, He is teaching me to go to Him, instead of experiencing Him by “accident” I am seeking to experience Him. And as I step into ministering for Him, to others, learning to hear Him, and even stepping up and telling people what God puts on my heart, for them and for myself. It is exciting to serve the Lord, and I fully believe that all believers can minister. Yes, it takes some faith, it takes some risk taking, but the Lord is good, he will use all of us in mighty ways.

Continue to humble yourself, listen, and know that when your heart is racing and the same thought is repeating itself, speak. God will honor your faithfulness, and give you more. But, if you become overconfident and lean on your thoughts, and not his thoughts, He will humble you. So either way remain humbled, and always give thanks to God, for he is the one who provides the words of life.
