Let God make the changes not you

spring-renewal blogIf you have read some of my posts you’d realise that I’m always emphasising on the fact that the real essence of grace is shown in our weaknesses. So later on in my life I’m now sure that Jesus wants me to come to him just the way I am and he accepts me and loves me and so do I. However, I begin to ask- what do I do with this, do I keep living the way I do or what really do you want from me Jesus?

I then decided to continue with the regular church traditions I was used to, going to church, making sure to read the bible everyday even though some of it didn’t make sense and I forgot most of it at the end of that day but reading the bible made me feel good about myself. God helped me to realise that he’s so much bigger than just the outward practises (which are not wrong) but he wants a heart that sincerely yearns for him not striving for a good outlook because not everything “good” is necessarily about or pleasing to God. He helped me to learn the real essence of studying the bible with a genuine interest in knowing him and why he loved me so.

You see God’s word has the sort of renewing power that all I really needed to do really was give myself to it and consciously or unconsciously my lifestyle gradually began to change. I didn’t really set out to make any changes but God through his word was (and is still) moulding me into his perfect will and I can honestly say that I’m a better person in a better place in my life. Remember God’s word is not there to condemn but to set us free so let’s give ourselves to it with a whole lot of expectation that  God will reveal himself uniquely to each of us.

THE LOVE SERIES (finale)

loving me!

Well it’s been a nice long chat about loving yourself and we are finally here and I do hope that for some of us it has been a healing experience and hopefully we have a little more insight on what this whole God kind of Love is all about.

I’d encourage you my amazing readers to keep checking through the bible and also google bible scriptures on love if you don’t know any to get more understanding about what this Love is about.

Final thought I’d leave you with is overall God is LOVE always remember that as long as you’ve got God in you, you’ve got Love in you and if you let him, he’d showcase himself in your heart and in your life. Everything is a process even Jesus had to grow up and learn from his teachers and didn’t start manifesting as the messiah until his later years of his life so allow God sometime to do what he does best and eventually by his grace we will all get there myself included :).

THE LOVE SERIES 6 (LOVE NEVER GIVES UP/NEVER LOSES FAITH)

Faith

You may not have faith in yourself but have faith in the God who made you

If you have been following the Love Series, I’m sure you would have figured it out what you need to do before I even start ;). One thing I’ve learnt is sometimes when we give up probably on a certain project or developing a skill or improving a certain talent, or making certain commitments, we deny ourselves of once in a life time opportunities. We have been talking about loving ourselves first so that we would be able to understand what it means to showcase this kind of love to others.

If you are willing to not believe in yourself and the God who made you, it would be difficult to believe in others. I can go on and on about how much of a valuable person you are and why you should never give up on yourself but that will take a whole day so I’d rather you pick one thing today and this that God has not given up on you so why should you? Once you’re able to get that around your heart and head you are already showcasing love because people will look at your life and say I want to be like that and it would be easier to not give up or lose faith in people and ultimately God.
