The last to go...
So true ~ It's our thoughts... Pastor Jeremy Foster did a series a couple of years ago called Love Sex and Dating, and it was the first time I was introduced to the idea that there's just some stuff you'll always have to pray away. Up until that point, I had always assumed/ hoped that if I got close enough to God it would be impossible for things xyz to rear their little heads, but that's the beauty of this relationship.
Just like any other relationship, you work at it, water it like a garden, take the time examine how things are coming along, celebrate the wins, seek help in times of need... And that's why I'm finally setting out to push for being more in intentional and in tune with Him. Not the outward kinda way that looks good to friends and fam, but an intimate personal relationship that requires time, dedication and most importantly commitment.
Israel Houghton has a song called Deeper, and the lyrics say something along the lines of ~ God, give us a heart give us your heart give us your heart ~ and break my heart of things that, break Your heart. | I want to see the things He wants me to see, break free of the things He doesn't want for me, and have the life and peace people are always talking about.
Romans 12:2 says: Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is--his good, pleasing and perfect will. That's literally all I want haha Have a great day you guys! Peace, Love & Sunshine ~ Chels
