Point to Ponder: God smiles when I trust him.
Question to consider: Since God knows what is best, in what areas of my life do I need to trust him more.
This chapter was a good read.
There are a few areas in life where I should trust God more.
Financially, for starters. When you work multiple hours and your check doesn’t seem to reflect all the hard hours you put into it. Then on top of that you have to pay all your bills then stretch your pennies til next payday. I should trust that God would see all my needs met.
In relationships. Knowing that its okay to be by yourself for a while. Being strong to not give into sexual impurities. Waiting on God and growing in yourself so that you can be ready and be the person you need to be before your true love comes & vice versa.
Spirituality, sometimes I can fear God too much but I honestly do believe that he takes into account our sinful nature and doesn’t expect us to be perfect here on earth yet in this flesh. Not any and every little thing will condemn you. That’s why we have to be prayerful. I should trust that I know God. That way there will be no guilt after I repent.
My destiny. I believe I have a purpose, something that I was born to do. I’m not sure if it’ll be big or small but whatever it is I would like to accomplish it. I would like to learn to trust God while he leads me down this journey called life.
Trust him when things change. Everything happens for a reason right ? When someone new enters or someone I’m close to leaves I should keep in mind that people come into our lives for a reason and leave for a reason too.
Trust him in my abilities. With the certain gifts that I posses. That I can use them for his purposes and not for personal gain.
I wore my hair straightened for 40+ days and still considered myself to be natural.
Nicki Minaj coming out with her real hair on display has raised a few questions on what “natural hair” really is. Do you still consider hair natural if it’s been straightened? If the curl pattern has changed in any way?
Point to Ponder: I was planned for Gods pleasure.
Question to Consider: What common task could I start doing as if I were doing it directly for Jesus ?
Okay, so I have asked myself this question before, not the question above but the one that follows. God doesn’t need us, he isn’t lonely. He is pure perfection and glorious. He made us to worship him specifically. Like, you made me so I could honor you ??
That’s cool I suppose. . .
Which in reality it is interesting because he truly does deserve all of the praise. God is simply amazing with his infinite power, understanding, mercy and grace.
I could come to my job and instead of wanting to please my boss focus on pleasing god because he isn’t someone I would want to disappoint. When I am assisting an elderly person such as my mom I could keep my aggravation at bay by offering at a token to God.
Bringing pleasure to God is called worship. Worship isn’t just confined to songs and dance.
Anonymous said: Your throw back picture of freshman year doesn't look so holy. It contradicts other posts on your blog.
Yes I do suppose that it could.
However, I think that you miss the purpose of my daily devotions. . .
I’m not Holy…if I were I wouldn’t need the devotional. I am growing in myself and in God.
I’m a human, which means I am sinful, I also have a past ER GO the hashtag ‘thee-row back’ #throwback as in preivously taken.
But thnx for your feedback 💋✌
My God is amazing. He blessed me with family and friends that love me. He continues to keep me despite what things around me look like. Today is going to be a good day. #HelloGoodMorning #MorningInspiration
Point to ponder: Its all for him.
Question to consider: Where in my daily routine can I become more aware of Gods glory?
Everything of natural creation reflects Gods glory in some type of way. The sun rise and sun set, the clouds, the rain, the beauty of the changing seasons, the stars and vastness of the universe. How natural herbs can be used for our benefits.
When I wake up in the morning I can be thankful, because the day wasn’t promised to me. When I go to sleep I can realize that God wired my body to recharge its self. On my way to what ever destination I am set towards I can see God’s glory because I made it there safely. As evil as the world is today you never know when someone will think to harm you for no reason at all. When im at work I can be aware that the children I have come in contact with are God’s children and need the Patience and love of a stable adult.
