Life drains. Stuff happens. Often we are faced with difficult and challenging situations. Because our God is Trinity it is possible to maintain some sort of spiritual equilibrium in the midst of life’s turmoils.
To be filled with the Spirit is to be controlled by the Spirit.
It is crucial to a successfully-lived Christian Life. Unlike the indwelling of the Spirit – filling is a repeated experience. it entails CONFESSION of sin, YIELDING to God.
Is your earthly vessel leaking?
Something to think about. Not a format – not a ritual but a truth in my personal life. Prior to an operation during actual crisis situations for me it was and is about ‘connection’.
Think about this ………To face this day. To face this week. To face issues which will arise.
Look to heaven. Confess sins and inadequacies. Physically open up your hands to Him. Pray the 23rd Psalm – I will follow YOU…………. ‘Anoint my head with oil.’ (In an old Testament concept this was anointing in a physical sense.). The Great Shepherd LIVES today. In faith and with humility let HIM pour the Oil of His Spirit afresh on your life today and every day.
Then Go forth and LIVE life for HIM and for others.
Ponder. Reflect. Our God is an AWESOME GOD.
I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions.
I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.
