My thoughts feel jumbled, but there are more things the Lord has been teaching me that I’d love to share with you. I apologize if this post seems somewhat disordered, however, I pray that you may be encouraged. ❤
It feels like the time is flying by so fast and I haven’t been able to catch a breath. One thing after another continues to come and before I know it, something else is over. I just celebrated my 17th birthday yesterday, which still seems surreal. Sure, I don’t really feel older, but there’s going to be things that occur that never happened before. Honestly, I wish everything would just slow down so that I can really soak in everything around me and so that change doesn’t have to come so quickly.
Do you ever sometimes feel like you’re learning so many things at once that you kind of want to stop thinking for a moment? Honestly, that’s where I am right this minute. It seems as if I’m at a point in my life where I’m really learning to listen to God. I’m not merely talking about hearing His voice, but actually obeying what He says. These things aren’t particularly related to what I’m learning in my quiet time, but more so the fruit of what I’m learning along with things in my life that have helped me learn to trust Him more. I thought I’d recollect a couple of these lessons in a blog post and share what God has been teaching me. Why don’t you pull up a chair and maybe grab a cup of tea?
Whenever serving is talked about, we only ever talk about our attitude. Are we upset when we do certain things? Or are we joyful? However, I’ve come to realize that service is more than just about our attitude.
This was a hard post to write. It’s one of the most honest posts I’ve ever written, but it feels good to finally share what God has been teaching me lately. I pray that He will use what He’s placed on my heart to encourage you. ❤
Whenever I think about Bible Bee, I will never forget what happened last year. In real time, I followed, on the private social community, what ended up being the last days of a fellow contestant. I didn’t know him personally, but had heard about him quite often.
I’m back with another favorites post. I’ll be honest and say that I listened to a lot of music these past two months. I discovered many new songs and fell in love with some old favorites. Thus, this post is just filled with music, so get ready to plug in your headphones. 😀 I hope that you find something that will encourage you!
It is rather difficult to cultivate that fruit in such a fast paced world. We wish that things would come as soon as possible like how it may only take 2 seconds for our computers to book upt. We have desires and want them right now. But what if it doesn’t come right away? We tend to become discontent and focus on what we don’t have, which causes us to become ungrateful for what we do have. Honestly, that shows that we’re looking for the things of this world to satisfy us.
That thought has circulated in my mind from time to time as I’ve gotten older. I guess it’s because I accepted Christ at the young age of 6, so I was saved from living a crazy life. I’m grateful that the Lord nudged my heart early on so that I would be protected.
You may be like me, saved at a young age, and thus sometimes wondering if your testimony has a purpose.
