Therefore if you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your mind on the things above, not on the the things that are on earth. For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God.
I woke up today with the same thoughts I have last night, the anger I have with those who think they are always smart, who thinks they are always right and that pants from Sefra/ which I really want to buy but I am in the process of correcting my attitude towards spending, I am a full time student now with no definite income.
These are my battles today that I have come to God for redemption because I know that these are things I can not overcome by my own strength and wisdom. In the midst of what is happening in the world now, yes shamelessly, I admit that these are my concerns for today. I can't forward with my tasks because these thoughts cloud my mind. And yet I am grateful because grace has come to me to discern and surrender these all to Him.
Therefore if you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your mind on the things above, not on the the things that are on earth. For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God.Colossians 3:1-3
I have been reminded of who God is, His Infinitude and who I am in His presence. In my prayer today, it was revealed to me my unfaithful heart, neglecting my true lover, pursuing my own glory. Leaning on my own understanding and do not seeking His counsel for the decisions that I make. and worst performing not to glorify Him but not to frustrate myself with that underperformance. This journey has bee about me, all about me already.
But God being who He is infinite with His grace and covered me with it amidst my self conviction, He revealed how I should be rejoicing for He has exposed it by the work of the Holy Spirit not so to punish me but to make me come to grace, receive mercy and find it to help me in time of need.
I am letting go and letting God.
