Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.
No one comes to the Father except through Me.”

Here’s Your Wake Up Call

Don’t you just love watching kids or babies get excited over the little things? They can be jumping around in a rain puddle and it’ll tickle them to death. Where did that spark go in us? Why do we stoop so low when we are worth so much more? Y’all God didn’t create us to live a sad life. Missing out is not what being a christian is about, CAN I GET A WITNESS!
Forgive me if I’ve ever mislead you, but I’m here to tell you today to slow down and take a breather every once in a while. Giving God glory doesn’t mean stressing yourself out, it means giving all you’ve got and being proud of that. The bible says God made you in His image. He is apart of you! That means you have the power to keep pushing when you think you can’t give anymore thanks to Him. How awesome is that?
Ask yourself this question, what’s got you so upset? What’s got you rolling your eyes or being hateful? Is it a conversation or something someone did? Well I’m going to tell you like I told a friend the other night. You can’t heal in the same environment that broke you. Get out of that place!! Don’t you hear God calling you? God loves you whether you give Him the slightest bit of attention or not. He even has a whole book written for you, called the Bible, which is FULL of advice. You’ve got to feed off of the source before you can receive all of it’s warm feelings.
I’m sick and tired of Christians who won’t get out of the dumps. Now I completely understand we all have our downs and I’ll be the first to admit it. Although, when God’s constantly trying to erase and forget your sin, and you keep bringing it to the table, your hands have no room for the blessings He’s trying to give you. But Sarah, it’s not that simple you say. No it’s sure not, it took me 14 years to consistently start having faith and trusting God. Guess what I learned though? I had to have all of those years without The Lord to know what I was missing out on, to truly appreciate what He does for me everyday. So hats off to you for not being ready to “wake up” right now because that means God’s still working on you and you’re going to be stronger than ever when you’re time does come! Just know it does feel so much better breathing on the outside than it does under a rock. Ask Patrick 😉
Genesis 2:18 says that, “The Lord God said, ‘It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.’” I am here for you. I can’t reach my full potential in this world without brothers and sisters in Christ. How can we grow and strengthen our relationship if we keep acting like it’s meaningless? I know I’m looking forward to what God’s going to do in my life this week, what about you? I pray that this message reaches everybody who feels like they aren’t enough. Aren’t ready. Aren’t worthy. Aren’t smart or good enough. You are all that and so much more.
