Have you thought about what it means to be a Christian? I’m sure we all know the automatic definition that we were taught from childhood – Christian means “little Christ” – and that’s true. Here in Proverbs we’re given a recipe for good clean livin’ – but I will say these things are not easy to do at times. So often we have to seek God’s help so we can be the kind of person our Lord wants us to be. He loves us so much and wants to be our guide.
If we can learn to fear less and have stronger faith in our Father above – that’s the key – trusting completely in Dr. Jesus – believing that He has every situation under control. God has been so faithful to me in every circumstance I find myself in – so why would I stop now? His ways are the best ways, and so I will keep looking straight ahead at Him, waiting for His help.
God is more reliable than any GPS… does your compass or GPS know the future? God knows what’s going to happen before it happens.
I want to be on HIS side and in His boat – don’t you? I may need to walk on water sometime – and yes, Lord, I’ll try to have faith to look at You instead of looking at my own feet. God is my source for all the power and strength I’ll ever need.
While I’ve been down with sciatica (actually, this is the lowest I’ve been in quite a while), I’m trying to feed my mind with positive God-centered things. Yesterday I watched “God is For Real”. I love that we’ll get to meet our children that were miscarried – and I love that nobody in Heaven needs glasses – oh, and that everyone is young in Heaven! I really like that! If you haven’t read the book or seen the movie, I highly recommend it. 🙂
I believe little Colton Burpo’s story – everything he talks about aligns with Biblical principles as far as I can see. I know the book & movie have been out for about 3 years, but the story gives me chills every time I read it or see the movie.
Please keep me in your prayers. I’m not able to walk far right now or sit up straight. Sciatica is such a weird thing – there are days when the pain is just awful – then there are days that aren’t so bad. It’s just a low point, but I’ve learned to keep my eyes on Jesus and trust Him for healing and to provide answers to my questions. 🙂
