Opinions and perceptions are irrelevant against facts and truths… the Word is so sharp it cuts to the core of the matter, which can be offensive to anyone who is in the wrong. I’m black-and-white in my thinking with some issues, other discussions are more grey/emotional. I think I just realized recently that I have a hard time balancing truth and love, without sacrificing one or the other.
Life is so weird right now. I feel very unsettled and stressed and don’t know the right decisions to make in a certain area of life. At the same time, I do know that my peace comes from the Lord- from me drawing near to him in prayer, meditation, studying his word, fasting, and worshipping.
I came across something I wrote last year and it just really encouraged me today. God keeps fulfilling my needs and surrounding me with love and encouragement… literally just incredible. Thank you, Lord.
/ You plead my cause, You right my wrongs /
/ You break my chains, You overcome /
/ You gave Your life, to give me mine /
/ You say that I am free /
/ How can it be? /
When we see God as:
•Everything we trust
•Everything we need
•Everything we want
We can truly LIVE how He wants us to live!⬇️
By being [Rooted] in the Word.
[Flourishing] where we’re planted.
Walking in [freedom] through Christ and truly living!
Offering our lives as [shade] to the people we interact with.
“Since God chose you to be the holy people He loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others. Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony. And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body you are called to live in peace. And always be thankful. Let the message about Christ, in all its richness, fill your lives. Teach and counsel each other with all the wisdom He gives. Sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs to God with thankful hearts. And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through him to God the Father.”
