Good Morning~~~Have A Wonderful Day~~~Life
How Do You Look At Your Life; Is it filled with Joy and Peace and in God’s will? Or are you struggling and do you feel like you are caught in a valley and can’t climb out?
Sadly, many people (I have been one of them at times) drift through life without taking hold of God’s terrific plan for them. Our Creator gives each of us the gifts, abilities, and circumstances necessary to live according to His purpose. Instead, many of us try to squeeze pleasure out of our lives where we don’t belong, and not according to our Heavenly Father’s plan. Straying out his will, and into forbidden territories getting us off track and into sin.
Sadly,and sinfully a number of saved individuals walk with the Lord for a time but then get off track. This happens for many reasons. Some become faint-hearted and lose the desire to endure through difficult circumstances. For others, worldly ideas and goals become distractions. Or perhaps certain people influence them to lose focus. Sports, hobbies, or simply busyness can also entice a believer and cause his heart to stray from Christ.
No matter what the cause, any life separated from the only true, and only right anchor Jesus is in danger. God offers believers a full life in Him. But the Bible teaches that Christians will not thrive if they are living apart from His Word, godly principles, and a close relationship with Him.Separated from Our Lord will only cause heartache.
Do you feel that you are walking closely with Jesus? Or have the cares of life entangled, and distracted you? Pray for wisdom as you consider these questions, and tell the Lord you desire to surrender whatever it is, apart from Him, that has your passion. Commit to pray, to read the Word, and to obey. Make your true passion be the Lord Jesus Christ and let your heart fall back in love with him, and the rest will fall into place. He never promised us a easy, and perfect life, however keep in mind the world sure has nothing to make your life perfect…….

‘TIS SO SWEET TO TRUST IN JESUS
’Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,
And to take Him at His Word;
Just to rest upon His promise,
And to know, “Thus says the Lord!”
Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him!
How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er
Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus!
O for grace to trust Him more!
O how sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just to trust His cleansing blood;
And in simple faith to plunge me
’Neath the healing, cleansing flood!
Yes, ’tis sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just from sin and self to cease;
Just from Jesus simply taking
Life and rest, and joy and peace.
I’m so glad I learned to trust Thee,
Precious Jesus, Savior, Friend;
And I know that Thou art with me,
Wilt be with me to the end.
TRUST AND OBEY
When we walk with the Lord in the light of His Word,
What a glory He sheds on our way!
While we do His good will, He abides with us still,
And with all who will trust and obey.
Trust and obey, for there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.
Not a shadow can rise, not a cloud in the skies,
But His smile quickly drives it away;
Not a doubt or a fear, not a sigh or a tear,
Can abide while we trust and obey.
Not a burden we bear, not a sorrow we share,
But our toil He doth richly repay;
Not a grief or a loss, not a frown or a cross,
But is blessed if we trust and obey.
But we never can prove the delights of His love
Until all on the altar we lay;
For the favor He shows, for the joy He bestows,
Are for them who will trust and obey.
Then in fellowship sweet we will sit at His feet.
Or we’ll walk by His side in the way.
What He says we will do, where He sends we will go;
Never fear, only trust and obey.
