Letting Go

Letting Go

I hope that you are all having a great day! Instead of posting on something that has been on my heart lately, I thought I would post on something someone asked me to post on regarding a certain topic they have been experiencing in their own life.

But anyways, thanks so much for bringing this topic to my attention and asking me to post on this. I’ve been struggling in this area in my life recently as well, so I will be speaking from my heart regarding this too.

Okay, so the topic I’m going to write on today is getting rid of sin in our life when we want to keep holding on to it. I know of plenty of things in my own life that I enjoy doing and get “addicted” to doing them. I tend to spend more time thinking about things, doing things that are fun and exciting when I really should be spending my time doing wiser things. It is so hard when we feel good while doing something and we just can’t seem to let go of doing that one thing in our life.

I have told myself many a time that what I’m doing isn’t wrong and I have a right to enjoy myself and have fun once in a while. Now, while that is true, we shouldn’t let sin and fun get mixed up together. While things may be fun, they may also be sin by taking up our time away from God or spending time with Him. When I spend more time on things that I like to do and not time with God then that is when it becomes sin and I should limit myself to those activities.

Even though we may know what we are doing is sin it is still hard to let go of those earthly desires and focus on other things. It is our earthly mind that keeps us focused on these things and tells us that we have the right to keep doing that sin- it is also Satan telling us to give in to sin. I sure don’t want Satan to take over my thoughts and replace God? do you?

Make the decision today to let go of those earthly desires and turn to God. If you feel yourself giving into them again, ask God for help to keep you strong and focused. Now, please don’t get me wrong- some things are not sin, so please know that things that bring us pleasure is not sinning (at least in most circumstances) it is when those fun things get in the way of our time and thoughts with God. So be diligent when determining what you have to let go in your life and give over to God.

When life gets hard, pray harder!
When life gets crazy, read the Word more.

Life is not the best but not the worst. It all depends on your point of view. 
We need to be reading the Word and praying everyday. But sometimes we have things that come up and it can be hard. But that is when we trust Him and let Him lead us. 
Don't get upset, frustrated, angery, bitter, ext. Just give it to God and obey.

Okay so I'm learning this right now. My life is not perfect but I'm learning. The more I read the Word the more I realize how much I don't know. But it is best to listen and obey. I have disobeyed but we learn from it. What satan wants for a deaator God can turn for glory. It may hurt but do. Just obey, it may seem hard but in the long run it will work out. 
I love all of you!!!! DM is always open. If you need prayer, talk, ext. I'm here for you!!! God bless

#bibletime #Jesus #Jesustime #amazing #rabbit #cute "All I Need Is You" - Jesus Culture

Left my fear by the side of the road
Hear You speak, won't let go
Fall to my knees, as I lift my hands to pray
Got every reason to be here again
Father's love that draws me in
And all my eyes wanna see is a glimpse of You

All I need is You
All I need is You, Lord, is You, Lord
All I need is You
All I need is You, Lord, is You, Lord

One more day, and it's not the same
Your Spirit calls my heart to sing
Drawn to the voice of my Savior once again
Where would my soul be without Your Son
Gave His life to save the earth
Rest in the thought that You're watching over me

All I need is You
All I need is You
All I need is You
All I need is You

You hold the universe
You hold everyone on earth
You hold the universe
You hold, You hold
