1 Corinthians 13:12

Sometimes...even though we have GOD in our hearts...we need to let HIM into our lives.

I'm not completely sure why that statement popped into my head today. I was reading a blog and when I was finished...that's what I was thinking. Is GOD trying to tell me something? My thought would be yes...and HE could be telling you something too! 

While thinking about this I realized that at times I do shut GOD out and it always happens when life overwhelms me. Crazy...I know. When I'm feeling overwhelmed...anxious...stuck out in left field by myself...that's when I should be drawing closer not pulling away. Why do I react this way...I don't know!!

When I...we...get this way, I need to turn my eyes back to JESUS. Get my focus restored. 

This verse is a good reminder of how I...we...should be thinking...

John 3:30
He must increase, but I must decrease. [He must grow more prominent; I must grow less so.]

Always remember...

No matter what the circumstances of your life are... JESUS is holding on to us and HE won't let us go!

Colossians 4:2

Devote yourselves to prayer with an alert mind and a thankful heart.


1 Corinthians 13:12

 Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely.


Joy to de world! :D said...

Amen! How true that sometimes is like we're accepting Him as Savior over our lives but we're not accepting Him as Lord over our lives. Thanks for the post! :D

Great thoughts Chelle; I know the only way to be completely filled with His Spirit, is to empty myself of me so that there is more room for Him!

Blessings friend!

this hit home b/c sometimes I too shut Him out and end up frustrating myself until I finally come to the end of me...and realize how much I need His help. Thanks Chelli. Hey would it be okay to use your salvation plan on your sidebar to put in the back of a book I'm writing?
