To love is a choice we make everyday. To love yourself enough to get out of bed and front the world for another day. To love enough to maintain a positive attitude and get yourself to work. To love by forgiving others who’ve hurt you. To love even though your children think you’re the worst mother/father in the world. To love your colleague even though he/she has just made a fool of you in front of others. To love your boss even though he/she hates what you stand for.
To hold on to hate is something too much to bear, it’s all consuming all stressful and all soul destroying. You may think no one knows what you’re going through or no one even cares for that matter. But it’s during these times that you hold on and give it to God because God knows your wounds more than yourself. Surrender to God and He will restore, repair, reduce, remove, revive, reverse, repeal, rescind etc……..He can change rules, policies, statues and laws overnight!
If there is love in your heart, everything is lighter and brighter and it will uplift and take you higher because your heart is full of love and love destroys all evil.
Jesus said… (Luke 6:35) But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High, because He is kind to the ungrateful and wicked.
Whether you accept this or not, we are programmed for God. God is our maker and creator. God has given you your heart, God has given us all a free will. God doesn’t want robots, God wants us to choose Him, He respects the choices we make and in no way interferes with that. Our life choices and the sins of others may have bad consequences, we can’t blame God for that. God doesn’t cause bad things to happen. Our burdens can be lighter if we have God in us.
Our God is a God of impossibilities who makes things possible. God doesn’t want you to have mediocrity, God doesn’t want you to be poor either, God wants you ask big, to have abundance and have it to the full. This doesn’t mean you’ll get everything you ask for but, God will give you what is better for you in the long run. This doesn’t mean there won’t be hard times, but just know that throughout those hard times, God is there helping you to grow and align a better outcome for you. Sometimes the hard times can teach us lessons in life, sometimes those hard times can force a change that will help us grow, may be to have more patience, honesty, humility, good work ethics etc….
To get there, you have to understand that joy comes from within……. that space in your heart that only God can fill, needs to be fed. When things are right between you and God everything falls into place, at exactly the time of God’s choosing. Here are some things you can do.
- MAKE GOD AND JESUS THE CENTRE OF YOUR LIFE
- THERE IS POWER IN THE CROSS THAT JESUS BORE FOR OUR SINS
- PRAISE GOD AND HIS SON JESUS CHRIST
- KEEP A POSITIVE ATTITUDE
- BLESS AND THANK YOUR FATHER & CREATOR GOD
- REMAIN STRONG AND HAVE FAITH
You might think this is a bit crass, but I have seen God’s hand at work many times
in my life and others.
HOW DO YOU SPEND YOUR DASH?
Make your life count, give glory to God and He will reward you.
THE CHOICES WE MAKE EVERYDAY AFFECT OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD
There is a fight inside of us all, the fight against good or evil, one that we have to deal with on a daily basis. Often we don’t know which way to go. When you pray and ask for guidance, the Holy Spirit, (Spirit of God and Spirit of Jesus) is the one to pray to. The Holy Spirit is the shaker, the one who gets you to move and make a choice, the one who guides that wee little voice inside you, to make the right choice and to help you fulfil what God has planned for you. It’s often those split second decisions that can make all the difference between making a good and a bad choice, between death or life. PRAY FOR GUIDANCE AND ASK THE HOLY SPIRIT TO SHOW, LEAD AND GUIDE YOU TO THE TRUTH! ( SEE HOLY SPIRIT )
