He took on His role because there was no other way.
He had a mission. And it was the cross, and now the Head of the Church.
What would many people say to that option today? I think they would pass. But Jesus found the joy in it… or maybe through it.
How can anyone find joy in the cross and then live in a real Hell for three days?
The same way He got through The Cross is the same way we are to look at life. Complainers will always find a reason to quit, but like Jesus, we are to find the joy in completing our mission!
This is what I am doing:
- Don’t look at the road in right in front of you, look where it is going
- Focus on the mission at hand
- Keep my foundation of the Word strong
What is your mission? What are you doing to walk in the ways of Jesus? rR
You must remember that this is first and foremost a conversation between you and God, your Father and Creator. And there is no one else that will or should understand exactly what is being said. Be direct with God. You can’t hurt His feelings. Ask Him if you should share what you have heard with […]
Maybe I am over thinking things? I have so much to do, but what about peace? Where do I find peace? Not in doing more. Not in distractions. That seems obvious. But I do find peace in completion. In getting the things done that I should be doing instead fretting on the things I […]
As I blog on this topic the thought has come to mind that someone might take this and say that God told them to hurt someone. But then the fact is that if someone wants to hurt people they won’t be here reading this blog either. In fact when I think of it, plenty of […]
How can I know I really am hearing God… will the doubt ever go away? Someone asked a great question about doubt and it got me thinking about how to deal with doubt and knowing that you really are hearing from God in your journal. For example today I woke up with questions about my […]
I want to assure you, you can hear from God, and using a Journal helps! Before I learned to Journal I felt like I could hear from God, but I did not know how, and I did not know if he would speak to specific things. Now after years of using both hand written and […]
Did you know that Isaac was an expert well digger? He had all sorts of things going on that could have stopped him. He was running the family business after all. In fact other people in the area were digging too, but they couldn’t find water. Think about the tools they had, or should I […]
What do I do?! My deadline is only 30 days away! I am working toward a goal of replacing my “day job” to a completely different industry. My goal is to do this by Sep. 27th. The following was my prayer Journal on Aug. 27th. You can read more about that by searching #Firedin107. […]
How do I connect with people and offering them my solutions for their business? Be alive and full of life. Let the light shine from the inside and I will take care of the rest. What have you really done that has turned out good of you? You made yourself available and I did the […]
This question comes to mind just about every time I sit down to Journal, and hear from God. So this is how I test what I hear. Does it line up with the word of God? Does it end in good results? Anything God tells me will always agree with His Word. And though […]
