Faith is being sure of what we hope for. It is being certain in what we do not see. We have faith. So we understand that everything was made when God commanded it. That’s why we believe that what we see was not made out of what could be seen. (Hebrews 11: 1, 3 NIRV)
You give me wise advice to guide me. And when I die, you will take me away into the glory of heaven. I don’t have anyone in heaven but you. I don’t want anything on earth besides you. My body and my heart may grow weak. God, you give strength to my heart. You are everything I will ever need. But I am close to you. And that’s good. Lord and King, I have made you m place of safety. I will talk about everything you have done. (Psalm 73:24-26, 28 NIRV)
I wish I could just let of my personal desires and let God give me the life I need and want. God is almighty and he dictates the lives of all who roam the earth. I want to be able to let go and let God be the only thing that flows through my body. I’m so thankful to have a God so great who is always trying to teach me the meaning of life and the worth I hold.
Think about the things that are in heaven. Don’t think about the things that are on earth. Christ is your life. When he appears again, you also will appear with him in heaven’s glory. So put to death anything that belongs to your earthly nature. Get rid of your sexual sins and unclean acts. Don’t let your feelings get out of control. Remove from your life all evil longings. Stop always wanting more and more. You might as well be worshipping statues f gods. But now here are the kinds of things you must get rid of. You must put away anger, rage, hates and lies. Let no dirty words come out of your mouths. Don’t lie to each other. You have gotten rid of your old way of life and habits You have started living a new life. It is being made new so that what you know has the Creator’s likeness. You are God’s chosen people. You are holy and dearly loved. So put on tender mercy and kindness as if they were your clothes. Don’t be proud. Be gentle and patient. Put up with each other. Forgive the things you are holding against one another. Forgive just as the Lord forgave you. And over all of those good things put on love. Love holds them all together perfectly as if they were one. Let the peace that Christ gives rule in your hearts. As part of one body, you were appointed to live in peace. And be thankful. (Colossians 3:2, 4, 5, 8-10, 12-15 NIRV)
I can’t believe how great the bible is and how it rightfully sets my life. It’s my method of guidance without bias. The bible revolves around the love that our Lord has for us and evokes a need for righteousness and appropriate change. I hate how the world changes the real values that God tries to instill in us from the day we were born. This is just a reminder for myself, that I’m supposed to be living through God and not this worldly place..
This scripture has taught me a lot about myself and my relationships. It reminds me which aspects of my life I need to work on and which aspects should be cut out. I pray to be better and I wish it was a lot easier to do so.
