Talk the walk...Are YOU walking the talk?
Heard this question this morning as I woke.... "You talk the walk but are YOU walking the talk?" Had to chuckle because I knew what that meant and who was asking.
God has reminded me that living and enjoying life is not a series of enjoyable circumstances. It's an attitude, an attitude of the heart... I see my struggle when I heard my friend's diagnosis of cancer or when my teenagers act up or even, when my hubby and I get into an argument. In most cases I am trusting Him and enjoying life as He presents it to me. I know my heart is good and strong, I confess, I still have weaknesses. God wants me to be consistent in my walk. As a believer I know that I have an abundant quality of life that comes from God. And getting caught up in my BAD circumstances I could fail to enjoy the pleasures God provides every day. He has given me abundant life and my goal is to enjoy it to the fullest!!
God has given all of us sufficient grace to handle ANY circumstance that may come before us or around us. "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." 2 Cor.12:9 (NIV) We have to embrace the challenge and/or bad circumstance and forge on with confidence. Put the whole armor of God upon ourselves and be victors for His glory. Ephesians 6:10-17
Thank You Father God for Your precious gift of grace. Through the power of the Holy Spirit we will live life for Your glory and take ALL circumstances in our paths to You. We receive.... "The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have [it] more abundantly." John 10:10 (KJV) and will not forget our standing in Your Name LORD. Through Your word we gain strength and new understanding. Your praise will be always upon our lips and we exalt Your name forever. (Psalm 34) In His blessed name Christ Jesus we pray.....Amen!!!
