Oh my goodness!…

Oh my goodness! This is really moving my spirit. This is why I’ve been making the effort to walk more and more in the Holy Spirit.

(1 John 2:15-17) 15 Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. 17 And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.

Its my rebirthday! I give myself away- William McDowell

Today I am 1 year spiritually old. Like a baby I have learned who my Father is and the rest of my family the Son and Holy Spirit. My crying (communication) is my prayers. I slowly learned to talk in faith and walk in faith. Like a baby I’ve tried to imitate my Father and do as He does. When I’ve misbehaved He corrected my behavior and continued to love me. My lullabies are gospel music. The bible is my food. I started out with a few scriptures and progressed to several chapters at a time. My day care is church and fellowship meetings with fellow Christians. I slowly came to self awareness that I am a born again Christian. Now I’m learning self identity in Christ. I am my Father’s daughter. I’ve grown so fast in my spirituality and will continue growing in Jesus name. I will celebrate my rebirth today by continuing to live as a living sacrifice to my Father and saying thank You, Father for another day. All honor, praise and glory to You. May Your will be done in my life now and forever. In Jesus name. Amen! Happy 1st rebirthday to me!

Father, Father, Father, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Holy Spirit, Holy…..

I was just sitting here thinking, does God ever get annoyed with His children? I don’t mean by our heathenish ways “oh Lord, help me get through and I’ll… and I’ll never…..again.” Calling upon Him when we only want or need something, but calling upon Him because we want His attention. Think about a little child with his/her parent constantly “daddy, daddy” or “mommy, mommy” and the child tugging at their parent for attention. We all know after some point the parent gets annoyed and tends to the child. I was wondering if God gets annoyed because I called upon Him right before I went to sleep last night and all wanted was to have more of Him. 🙂

flesh vs. the Spirit

This has been a interesting week for me. I’ve been reflecting on my life and looking at how far God has brought me. I’ve dealt with a battle between the flesh and the spirit and the spirit has won, but my whole life has been a war and the war is still going on. Ever since I allowed God to take over as Captain all I want to do is continue seeking hard after Him. My flesh is weakening as my spirit is strengthening. I feel this is what it truly means to be a Christian, to live in the spirit and not by the flesh. The world lives by the flesh and living by the flesh makes it so hard to understand who God is. To understand who God is you must give up the things of this world and seek Him out. The more you seek Him the less you want of this world. Here’s the thing, once you die you can’t take the world with you, but if you truly know God you will be able to enter His heavenly world that is much greater than what we live in.
Side comments by me: I have always been a believer of Christ, but I wasn’t exactly living by the word. I was what I heard in a radioblog a “casual Christian”, a believer, but not living by the word, going to church to just hear the message, but not applying it to my life, flip through the Bible every once in a while and not taking the time to understand it, and praying to God, but not truly speaking with Him. The moment I actually allowed God to be Captain was August of last year. God had to take away everything from me that I thought was what I was supposed to have. He humbled me and made me realize that I’m not in control of my life, but He is and my life is not for me and my benefit, but for His will and glory. I have changed so much I even amaze myself.
Just continue seeking Him and trusting Him. He has everything under control and never doubt Him. If God says He is going to do something, please believe He will do it. I realize how blessed I am to finally allow God to be the Father (as I’ve been calling Him Captain) of my life. I finally understand and fully accept the Trinity, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Sometimes when I listen to the song “hear I am to worship” and it gets to the verse I’ll never know how much it cost to see my sins upon that cross, I think about what it felt like for Jesus to have died for every single person’s sins on this earth past, present, and future and what comes to mind is imagining yourself dying by ants eating at you. And not just eating like nimbling here and there I mean having ants on every inch of your body. Every part of your body covered with ants and they eating you, pulling at your flesh until there is nothing left of you, but bones.
