What Does Your Life Look Like???May 17, 2009
As I was thinking about this week, it has been a hard one in some ways – but a great one in other ways, I came upon a few thoughts that I would like to share with you….
So what does your life look like? What do other people think when you enter a room / place?
“Oh no, here comes that person that drags others down” – or are you an encourager – are you “giving thanks in everything”?
“Oh no, here comes that person who makes fun / insults everyone around” – or are you an encourager – But we are bound to give thanks to God always for you, brethren beloved
by the Lord, because God from the beginning chose you for salvation
through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth, 2 Thess 2:13
“Oh no, here comes the person who thinks they are the only one who is right” – or are you an encourager – Clothe yourselves, all of you, with humility toward one another, for “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” 1 Peter 5:5
Jesus warned us to…
Watch and pray that you may not enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.” Mt 26:41
We need to be so careful in what we do. Do we bring people down? Or do we lift them up? Do you need an attitude check?
I know I do…. I have been feeling down a bit the past few days. It is hard when you see someone else going down the wrong path – and you want to warn them – but when they don’t want to listen… it is so hard. But then, we need to just leave them in God’s hands. If we have done our part – then that is what we need to do. (I felt God leading me to talk with this person – and I responded.) But I was reminded this morning, in my prayer time…. in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. 1 Thess 5:18
So… Thank you God, for bringing to mind, this person that I needed to talk to. I thank You for the strength to talk to this person. I thank you that You LOVE us so much — that you care about what is happening in each of our lives. I thank you that You are in control – and that you KNOW what is going on. I thank You that You are a GREAT and Awesome GOD!!!
So, what does your life look like? I pray that you can encourage someone today…..
