"No one gets into heaven on the strength of good works and kind behavior. When we stand before God, the only thing that will matter is whether our old sin nature has been replaced. We want to show Him the living Spirit we received when Jesus came into our life."

This statement in my devotional hit me....I understood this but today it's meaning felt more like a warning for me.

Feel as if I am in the ocean treading water and if it wasn't for my faith and hope I would drown. I know GOD is changing me, pruning me and growing me but I also know that I could slip away into my old self if I don't stay focused on Jesus and trust GOD.

I am at another critical time in my life where I am waiting to walk through the next door but doubt is trying to creep in and negative thoughts are trying to take root. This is when I need to fall on my knees and pray, giving myself up to the LORD for protection and direction.

Very important to only move when GOD tells you and never do anything if you are feeling rushed or out of fear....if you feel like your running, stop and ask GOD if it is HIM moving you or fear....If you don't have peace then you need to pray before you make any decisions.

I'm finding the most difficult act of faith is waiting upon the LORD and not moving. Patience....GOD keeps telling me to trust HIM and wait because HIS timing is not our timing but my human instinct is to move so I am struggling within....trying not to take action before GOD tells me.

Noticed when I obey things turn out better then I expected but when I take back control I mess my life up and the situation gets worse.

Please LORD help me to see YOUR truth and give me peace, knowing my trust in YOU is never in vain.

    Awesome thoughts. I am having to catch up on your blogs. I wish they made it easier to follow someone's blog, lol.

    You are right on target with this blog. There are times when I am praying and it is almost like I hear God talking to me, and guiding me. There are other times when I have to stop and wait for his response. Oh how I love Jesus.
