This is a question I’ve asked myself not only today but on several occasions, “am I moving?” I want to be in a state of growth and purposefully doing the things God has planned for me to do. I keep getting into cycles of doing too much all in the name of helping others and gaining knowledge. Well what I’ve realized is that too much knowledge is dangerous and confusing and helping in the wrong capacity isn’t really help at all (can you say enabler?).
The bible should be the main source of truth I turn to. I’ve gotten busy reading supplemental material although it was scriptural based, going to various conferences and talking to people instead of talking and listening to God. I was neglecting a lot of my personal God time. He is very demanding and relational (it’s all good though).
When you are bogged down with stuff and people, life can become overwhelming and lead to bitterness. So, I’ve re-dedicated my life and time to God..lets hope I don’t fall off the wagon again. But seriously, when I ask God to show me things I need to give up, things that are hindering my walk and growth in Him, it’s really eye-opening to say the least. Get ready for painful moments and conversations with God, people and most importantly yourself.
I desire my life to reflect a continual state of refreshing and renewal, repentance and restoration, loving and being loved. My challenge for me and you: we allow God to grow and mature us by developing a closer relationship with Him through His Word, prayer and fasting. I personally never want to be or have relationships that are regressive and stagnate or live an unfulfilling busy life.
Psalm 103:5 who satisfies your mouth (your necessity and desire at your personal age and situation) with good so that your youth, renewed, is like the eagle’s (strong, overcoming, soaring)! (AMPC)
Be Blessed…. #purposeREVEALED
