Stop worrying about how you feel.
You lied, you cheated, you lusted, you gorged. You snapped, you hated, you cussed, you masturbated. You killed, you manipulated, you rejected or ignored.
God doesn’t want just half of your heart. God doesn’t want you to talk to Him only when you’re in the mood to do so. God wants all of you. He wants you when you’re sinless and when you’re sinful. He wants you on the days when you’re strong and on the days when you relapse. He doesn’t want just your beautiful parts, He wants everything.
Stop staying excuses. Stop listening to the devil. Stop thinking you can’t “go to God” because you feel you’re too unclean, ugly, or dirty. Stop worrying about how you feel because it’s not about you. Run to Him, even if you’d rather be dormant. Go to Him even if you’d rather hide in your guilt.
Ignore your laziness, embarrassment, and shame and go spend some time with the One who died for every dirty thing you think keeps Him away."
Yes yes yes. Believe it.
my dear friend called me, telling me that during her friends birth, the umbilical cord was wrapped around the baby, strangling it. the baby was black due to the cutoff of blood flow…
knowing the severe complication, my friend told me that she peacefully prayed to God [through Jesus Christ] and now the baby girl is a perfectly healthy and living girl.
PRAISE GOD! ^ - ^’)/
amen hallelujah!! new life, fresh faith, everlasting love of God!
"The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." -Philippians 4:4-7
For I am the Lord your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.
Song: Just Be Held - Casting Crowns
With our mouths we pray, ‘thy will be done,’ but with our hearts we hope, ‘thy will match mine.’
Why would we limit a Sovereign and holy God to our human condition? We must learn to hope for immeasurably more."
