Esther 1- 2; Psalm 150; Luke 17

Lost people……of which I was one….lost and empty……..empty and angry…..angry and selfish….selfish and …..I am still all those things... though in Christ….WHEN I am focused on You I’m not or not as empty...and I am no longer lost...….so why do I lose my focus….???? BECAUSE I am still selfish…….but the God of the UNIVERSE loves me anyway and calls me to LOVE….because HE loves me I can……..not perfectly…..not always……not without wrong motivations (sometimes) and IF the motivations...... come from Him you just know you know……..So my passion this tearing up everytime I think or talk about HIM is real…….sustainable only in and through time with YOU……time in the word……..but now all I hear is BE STILL….who knew you know…when I got my tattoo that it would be such a reminder……Be still and know that YOU are God. Psalm 46:10.


Luke 17: 33 If you grasp and cling to life on your terms, you'll lose it, but if you let that life go, you'll get life on God's terms.

His terms are ALWAYS the better way, we just have to stop fighting for our terms and accept His.

Believe it or not, I almost got the same thing as a tattoo. Where is yours located?

This was another good post. SELFISH is ME, I am SO into myself sometimes that I make myself sick.

Hugs,
