We become what we think about and focus on. If we focus on evil, we become evil. If we focus on Jesus, we become better. Focus matters so is my recent focus. Only salvation is more important than what we focus on. Our focus needs to be Jesus and eternity because this life is really so very short but the life that continues after is everlasting. So we must focus on Jesus for eternal security as He gives those who call Him Lord and Savior. We are loved unconditionally by Him and it is peaceful and divine to focus on Him. It is joyful and nothing feels better in the world than confidence in eternal life and our relationship with the Almighty God. He who did and is doing so much for us now and will do in the future, He is worthy of our focus. And what is focus if not worship???❤
Naturally a big picture person, I see the whole automatically and only very selectively see the details. But when I get out in nature, it is a purposeful act of worship to intentionally see the details, try to notice everything. It is in purpose and requires all my concentration. As such it is like a meditational therapy and also worship. Each detail makes me appreciate God more. Every detail is perfect, pure, beautiful, glorious. And the big picture, that God made it all perfectly in harmony on purpose with love. ❤
It has been impossible for me to stop talking about my Heavenly Father. I am sure you are tired of hearing it but my love for Him deepens every day, often every hour, and I long to share of His greatness. The perfection of God cannot be overstated, for it is the perfect blend of powerful love, beautiful glory, and sobering holiness. His creativity also embolden the breath of Him and nothing escapes His notice. He is everywhere and His grace and generosity accompany Him wherever He goes. Nothing is better than time alone with the Lord. Nothing fulfills like it or is sweeter.❤❤❤
My own agenda is thrown out the window. I submit my will to God’s will and pray His plans for me are the ones I seek. I want to do God’s will and keep in humble prayer all day long and keep in reading God’s Word. He is the only hope we have, the solution to every problem, the Truth and love and everything good, the perfect One, the Physician of the sick and Deliverer of the oppressed. God made everything we know of. That means the most majestic mountain peak, He is more majestic. The most beautiful rainbow or sunset, God is more beautiful. The most tender and precopus baby, God is more precious. The deepest depths and highest heights we know if, He is deeper and higher still. Praise God!❤❤❤
Staying close to God requires that you put the things that are not God down. You spend dedicated time with Him. You humbly pray. You read His Words, the Bible. You worship. You just chat. You stay close to God like you stay close to your best friend. But you have an advantage with God in that He is always with you, always available, living in your heart. ❤
When I pray, God reveals truths to me. He teaches me things. I have to be quiet and listen and humbly pray and God teaches me things. For instance, this morning as I walked and talked with Him, He revealed to me that when people idolize and lift up someone for some great thing they have done or achieved, they very often neglect t doling out praise and worship and adoration to God who gave them them hat gift or ability to begin with. In essence, it is glorifying the receiver of the gift rather than the Giver of the gift (and the Maker of that person). It is all wrong. God should get your praise first. God should be worshipped and lifted up for it all!!!❤❤❤
I walk along the path during the sunrise.
The heat is not yet a struggle.
The birds sing and find food, the butterflies also
The wind wafts in waves over my skin.
Not entirely awake, I move one step in front of the other
With each, my eyes open more
And I am struck with the immense beauty
The calm and noise balance luxuriously.
I realize God is already up for He never sleeps
I say good morning and He does too in heart and nature.
His gentleness does not offend in the early hours.
God’s presence is always a delight.
How rich my walk when He is there.
And He is always there.❤❤❤
