A reminder for today
Let them praise the LORD for his great love and for the wonderful things he has done for them. For he broke down their prison gates of bronze; he cut apart their bars of iron. (Psalm 107:15-16)
How are you my friend? I do hope you are well and that you are managing the storms that life so easily bring upon us. You are in my thoughts today as I stand before my own walls. It is funny how some days I seem fine and on other I just want to scream with frustration.
Sometimes life can feel like a dream, a nightmare that tortures our deepest inner self. We live in conflict and regret and we create walls and storage containers in our minds where we store our pain and our hate so that we can find it again when we need to. We live with knowledge yet we seem to ignore it at times. We bump our heads making the same mistakes over and over again.
We allow ourselves to be captured by our own insecurities and imperfections so that we can get chained by selfishness and jealousy. We seek God yet we continue to push Him away so that we can live onwards with our own faults. We call ourselves only human to mask our mistakes and transfer the guild of our inabilities to open ourselves and allow the Holy Spirit to fully find His place in our way of life.
Why do we want to show God to a world when we struggle to find Him in ourselves.
Today I want to remind you that God will and God can. In His plan lies an unbelievable future for each one of us. Let us praise Him for His great love and the gift we have in Jesus Christ. Let us remember all the wonderful things He has done and then let us position God in the centre of who we are and who we are meant to be.
Watch as He breaks down the walls and the prison gates we created for ourselves. Let us renew and reconcile ourselves with Him as He cuts away the iron bars that bound us to this world.
Let’s stand up again and live to show who He really is in our lives. Let us live a Christ centred life and destroy all that holds us back and creates fear within us. Let the Holy Spirit guide us and steer us in our storms.
Let the world stand amazed at His wonder.
Have and awesome day dear friend of Jesus
