Is it okay to feel as though you are addicted (for a lack of a better term) to an audio bible app? haha.
I never noticed how this scripture in this particular gospel, does not just say for Jesus’ sake, but also for the Gospel’s sake as well. I just finished reading Acts and the Lord showed me how the main focus of the apostles and the disciples was: the Gospel. They lived, breathed & shared the Gospel with everybody. They had so much boldness in the Spirit & so much zeal. Wow. Mind blowing. Please make me over My King & transform me.
May Your Gospel be more precious to me than my own life.
…but I think a lot of the reason why is because of the place I’m in with the Lord at this time in my life. He has me in a very still & quiet season and there’s just not a lot for me to say (which is rare for me if you know me very well lol).
And honestly, I don’t want to post anything unless He is leading me to. I don’t want to just post stuff to post stuff. I want to post things that will point people to Jesus and that will encourage them to run after Christ. Things that will encourage those who are lost to drink from the Living Waters that I have been blessed by God’s grace to drink from, so they will never thirst again.
I just want to sit at His feet, and listen, and learn from what He is teaching me. I’m still on here, but most likely won’t post as much as I was posting in the past. All I want to do is please Him. I just want to follow Him wherever He goes & if it means less time on here and more time in His presence (which is what I need anyway lol) then that is perfectly fine with me.
I am learning in this short amount of time that to dine with the King is such a honor, privilege, and pleasure!
Love you all & been praying for you <3
“Wait on the Lord.”
It may seem an easy thing to wait, but it is one of the postures which a Christian soldier learns not without years of teaching. Marching and quick-marching are much easier to God’s warriors than standing still. There are hours of perplexity when the most willing spirit, anxiously desirous to serve the Lord, knows not what part to take. Then what shall it do? Vex itself by despair? Fly back in cowardice, turn to the right hand in fear, or rush forward in presumption?
No, but simply wait.
Wait in prayer, however. Call upon God, and spread the case before him; tell him your difficulty, and plead his promise of aid.
In dilemmas between one duty and another, it is sweet to be humble as a child, and wait with simplicity of soul upon the Lord. It is sure to be well with us when we feel and know our own folly, and are heartily willing to be guided by the will of God.
But wait in faith. Express your unstaggering confidence in him; for unfaithful, untrusting waiting, is but an insult to the Lord. Believe that if he keep you tarrying even till midnight, yet he will come at the right time; the vision shall come and shall not tarry. Wait in quiet patience, not rebelling because you are under the affliction, but blessing your God for it.
Never murmur against the second cause, as the children of Israel did against Moses; never wish you could go back to the world again, but accept the case as it is, and put it as it stands, simply and with your whole heart, without any self-will, into the hand of your covenant God, saying,
“Now, Lord, not my will, but thine be done. I know not what to do; I am brought to extremities, but I will wait until thou shalt cleave the floods, or drive back my foes. I will wait, if thou keep me many a day, for my heart is fixed upon thee alone, O God, and my spirit waiteth for thee in the full conviction that thou wilt yet be my joy and my salvation, my refuge and my strong tower.”
2 Corinthians 3:17-18
Please pray for my family, especially my dad. Even though it’s been a year, it’s always difficult to lose a mother… it makes me extremely thankful for each day that I have with my mom…and I am so glad that for my grandmother it’s not over. Death has no sting and no dominion over her. Because she knows King Jesus (and I do too) we’ll be able to see her again. Thank You Jesus.
Consume me from the inside out Lord.
Bless me to love You more and more from the inside out.
And that every part of my heart has Your name inscribed on it <3
My favorite one: “Y. Yearning God, to look after us. “yet I will not forget you. Behold, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands” (Isaiah 49:15-16).” :D
My favorite part: “Jehovah Shammah is a symbolic name for the earthly Jerusalem. The name indicates that God has not abandoned Jerusalem, leaving it in ruins, but that there will be a restoration.”
