What God’s been teaching me lately,,,

… that I am not now, nor will I ever be perfect. I am human and mistakes unfortunately come with that.

… that He is trustworthy in all things – even when it hurts and I don’t understand.

… that I really can do all things through Christ.

… that I can do nothing on my own, and when I try I mess up. big time.

… that His calling is never too much to handle. It can be a lot, but never too much. His burden is light and His yoke is easy.

… that things look so much brighter when I have an eternal perspective. Lately I’ve been far too focused on me which only causes me to get my feelings hurt when others are careless and insensitive, to be worried about how I look and what others are thinking of me, and hold a wrong sense of entitlement. With my focus on the Lord I suddenly have a better attitude, a more cheerful spirit, greater strength, and tougher resolve.

… that nothing on this earth matters more than serving Him. Not money, not clothes, not a pretty house, not the latest fashions, not movies and tv shows, not free time, not vacations… nothing at all. The only thing worth living for is the unexplainable joy and satisfaction of being used by the King of Glory.

“It is the LORD your God you must follow, and him you must revere. Keep his commands and obey him; serve him and hold fast to him.”
Deuteronomy 13:4
