Full of false pride and making excuses!!!!!

Friday, June 28, 2013



Hi Everyone

I posted a blog a week ago. In it I didn't lie. I stated the truth for me AT THAT POINT IN TIME.

You see the Holy Ghost has revealed to me some things this week. Some background information. I am a young Christian who is making some mistakes along the way.

I was saved in October 2012 but have been back in darkness for about 3 weeks. I also have bipolar illness. In this darkness I hurt some people close to me both family and friends.

I at first blamed the news and then my illness for my problems and behaviors. The news filled my head with ideas and I did need a med adjustment, but ultimately I am responsible for what I watch on television read, write and say to people.



My not taking responsibility was false pride. Others forgave me but I didn't feel forgiven. I was led to read a member blog this week on darkness. Then the Holy Ghost spoke to me and I was finally receptive.

I finally broke down and prayed and cried and took responsibility for what I did and feel forgiven. Forgiven by others, forgiven by God, and forgiven by myself.

I am now back on the right path with God today.

I hope this blog might be of some help to someone else as well.

Chris

Thank you Chris! I had a tough time forgiving myself for things I had done. I knew Jesus had died for all my sins and He had forgiven me, but I couldn't forgive myself. Then one day I realized I am not the same person I was when I did those things. So, with that in mind, I could forgive the person I used to be.
God bless you!!!! love, Darlene

    God bless you as you grow as a new Christian. Pray for the Lord to help you and to have discernment about what you allow to enter your mind. Satan is always at the door setting traps for us. If you resist the devil, he will flee from you. I pray for a hedge of protection around you. I pray you will find peace that surpasses all understanding.

    You are doing good so please give yourself a break. You are also dealing with a mental illness and from past experience, you know that alone can reek havoc. Turn your illness over to Him and seek His guidance (from the scriptures) every day and keep your eyes focused on Him and the word. satan would like nothing more than to knock you off you feet so stay strong and cling to His word and His promises.

Hugs, Sunny

    Keep on growing. We are all human and we have a great big forgiven Lord. It is wonderful that you ask others to forgive you. You are walking the talk as a believer.
God bless you; I am proud to call you brother in Christ.

  Chris you are loved so my by our Lord and Father God and all your sins are forgiven, past, present and future.

You cannot base your salvation on your feelings but on the word of God and what the word says to you about the truth of being born from above and once saved always saved and you are going to heaven no matter what because you belong to our Lord and Savior and our Father and you are sealed with the Holy Spirit in your spirit and you are like vacuumed sealed in your spirit with the new nature of Father God and you are one third and maybe born again and are just waiting for the redemption of your physical body to be transformed into your new eternal spiritual body that can go through walls...the best is yet to come.

Just believe how much you are loved. His grace has you covered no matter what you do.

We all do the same things and some of us even worse.

Just keep your focus on Jesus and not on your mistakes or shortcomings, He really does have you covered with His grace, love, truth and forgiveness.

  Chris, does it make you feel better to know most all of us try and rationalize some attitude, behavior or thoughts. It means we are human. Now that you know the Lord, you have the amazing coach and resource of the Holy Spirit.

We learn to recognize when it's conviction ( God's voice to correct, improve, change our thinking and what we are doing... But we also get beat up by others expectations, our own disappointment of ourselves, and the enemy really wants us to feel condemned.

It takes practice to find out that our being forgiven, has little to do with how we feel. Our feeling are constantly changing and influenced.

As for having Bi-Polar, it does influence you, but it's the entire picture. I used to have a hormone disorder. It must certainly messed with my emotions. I had to learn to use wisdom with media, exercising, reducing stress, eating patterns, my words, feelings, ect. There were times I did well with it, and other times it overwhelmed me and had alot of impact.

God knows this.

Give yourself some credit, that your longing and desire is to please God. Your motive is proper.

When we renew our minds, we find some relief... and other occasions we are impacted more.

God is honored that you have the courage to express pride influencing you. We all deal with this.

he wants you to receive is grace and move on. When you focus on the right good parts in your life and the improvements on blessings... peace grows. emoticon
