Resolve

Until My Journey Ends….

I recently watched a video of  Jesús Adrián Romero and he was talking about how God never leaves us. He is always there. Especially in those seasons that are the hardest; when we are suffering the most. The reason we don’t always see that, is that we tend to look at all around us, at the circumstances, instead of up at our Lord. If we do look up, we see that not only is He there; He is closer than ever.

I think that is very true. I don’t know about you, but my first instinct is to look up. God is our Father. My father on earth was a good dad. If I had a problem, he was the first one I would think of calling. And he never turned me down. I remember once when I was a teen and had to be at church early. It was winter and the roads were slippery. I drove too fast and my car slid into Continue reading

Freedom

FREE INDEED!!!

I was once told that if my spouse was not truly seeking God I would be unable to have a close, strong relationship with the Lord. That is a lie. I cannot change someone else, but…

“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.” Matthew 5:6

Unfortunately, a part of me believed that lie, for years. It wasn’t that my relationship with God was any less strong, it was just trapped inside. I wasn’t sure how to release it and express it. But if we are seeking God; loving Him with all of our heart, soul, mind, and strength, He reveals the truth to us. That truth sets us free.  “So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed Him, ‘If you abide in My word, you are truly My disciples,  and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.’  So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.” John 8:31-32, 36 Continue reading

Wisdom

I am a thinker. Most things, I really think through. I observe; I make an attempt to understand. I look at things from many perspectives. I do not just settle for what someone tells me. I wrestle with it awhile. Come to my own conclusions on the matter. Definitely hold things related to God up to what is written in the Bible. (Hmmm, question is, is there anything that is not related to God?) I do not immediately dismiss or accept something based solely on its source. (Two obvious exceptions to that: Clearly from God–immediate acceptance. Clearly from God’s enemy–immediate dismissal. Using Bible as basis for what is clearly God and/or His enemy.) I do not do this with a rebellious spirit or intent, I just feel the need to seek the truth for myself. Continue reading
