In fact...I have sinned every day this week... in a bad way!
I've thought things about people that I never thought I would think, and I have said things I would normally never ever say. UHMMM. Yes...I needed me some Jesus today! Our Pastor pointed out this morning that, "Worry will choke out what Jesus wants for your life. which is, Peace, Hope and Life!"
For the Readers Digest version: When Believer's Worry.......this is what happens: * We refuse our security that Christ gives us. God Gave us Life...He will take care of us if we only surrender to him.
* We Misuse Our Energy. If we would stop worrying and start praying and let God take control this would this would be a lot easier. ( This is always the one that get's me because I am not a backseat kinda person. I am a Do'er...I get things done...it's so hard to let go and not control the situation). God used a situation just this week....that made me rely and trust in Him for something to happen and in doing so .....the result was so much bigger than anything I could have ever hoped for.
* We abuse our testimony. As a believer...others are watching...show them that worrying is not what you do but trusting in God is.....even in the difficult times. This is also a hard one because if you are some one who serves in a Ministry type position....non-believers are waiting for you to fall so they can say......"Yeah...I see how you roll". This one is really hard for some....especially for me.
And the last one is....We confuse our priorities. Matthew 6:25-34. You can read this one to know what I am talking about but I am so guilty of this one it sickening. This verse talks about being worried about what your going to eat, what your going to wear...and worrying about your looks. All of which I worry about on a daily basis.... I am just sayin.....I am so guilty of this one!
The soulsmate didn't think I would be going to church this morning because he heard me get up last night .....Satan didn't want me to go either. In fact...I was up sick from 3:30a.m. until 5:45 a.m but went anyway....because I didn't get to go last week and I Love me some church!!
If Pastor didn't get through to one person ...he got through to me. Can I get an Amen?
