Isn't this lovely??
It is a clean slate, and it is what God blessed
me with last night!! Here's my story!!
Last night I was thinking and asking
God what the focus of today's "joy" post should be.
Well...He answered me in a way I didn't expect.
I have had some, let's say "stuff" , that I have been
joy out of my days.
"Yes, Becky, just like that!!"
for awhile now
Just let it go??!!
Trust me and press forward leaving
His desire for me...
Brethren, I do not count myself to have
apprehended; but one thing I do,
forgetting those things which are behind
and reaching forward to those
things which are ahead,
of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
and everything that encumbered him, and that
might have kept him from living
his life fully for Christ.
You see, God knows me so very well.
He knows that there are many things
I have deeply desired to accomplish that I have
been utterly fumbling through, because this
"stuff" has been draining me.
So, I have done my part.
By an act of my own will I have chosen to
leave it all behind me, and not to let any
of the "stuff" cause me to
fumble any longer.
God has done His part and has supernaturally
wiped my slate clean. YAY!!! I feel strong, uplifted,
refreshed and totally in awe of His loving care
Now that doesn't mean that the adversary won't
still try to bring it back up, so I already have
two things prepared for him in that event!!
Finally, brethren, whatever things are true,
whatever things are noble,
whatever things are just,
whatever things are pure,
whatever things are lovely,
whatever things are of good report,
if there is any virtue
and if there is anything praiseworthy,
meditate on these things.
And next a little saying that has helped
If Satan reminds you of things that are in the past,
REMIND HIM OF HIS FUTURE!!
Pullleeaasse, let the past be the past, and don't
allow yourself to be robbed of your joy by carrying
around a bunch of "stuff" that should be
God will help you clean your slate, too,
you will be amazed at how FREE you feel!!
I thank each and every one of you who have
prayed for me. I wholeheartedly believe
this is an answer to those prayers.
