Over the past few weeks, the stresses of life have reminded me of how much I take advantage of God. I know you’re wondering, how does stress equate to taking advantage of God? For starters, I was self-reflecting sometime last week at the brink of a meltdown, and I realized that my stress is privileged. The fact that I have mountains of assignments due, exams, campus obligations, and work— are all out of the privilege of being a child of God.
As His child, He has blessed me to be in school, have a steady source of income, and a healthy amount of involvement in things that benefit me. God has and continues to focus on what makes Yencko happy. He never deprives me of my ultimate need— JESUS. The sacrifice on the cross is a constant reminder of how generous God is. He gave His only son and in addition, He gave us life knowing darn well that we are a bunch of sin prone idolaters. He knew that when we entered the earth He will have to remind us heavily on who matters most— HIM.
In knowing this, and really meditating on this reality— I couldn’t help but fall to my knees and thank God. Just thanking Him for blessing me and with a repentant heart, asking for forgiveness for being such a spoiled Christian.
Do we really understand the depth of a blessing? The fact that living a blessed and whole life means that Christ becomes our absolute— sole source of EVERYTHING. Most importantly, we have access to God’s heart and the privilege to surrender ALL to Him, frees us from all of the stresses— and evidently makes us BLESSED.
If that wasn’t a heart check, then I don’t know what is.
Remember in those difficult times and even in the best times, that YOU ARE BLESSED.
"One Thing Remains (Your love never fails)" by Bethel Live
I know it’s been a few weeks since my last post, so as things are coming together I thought I’d share this song that’s been on my heart. Throughout all of the changes and difficulties of the last few months, one things remains— God’s love NEVER fails. You may be at a low point, feeling discouraged, or even at a great time in your life. Just remember that no matter what, that God’s love is unfailing and HIS undying love will NEVER fail YOU.
"the LORD delights in those who fear him, who put their hope in his unfailing love."
- Psalm 147:11
God loves you and He cares.
P.S.-I’ll be updating you all on what’s been keeping me so busy! Look out for more posts this coming weekend/week
Ladies wake up!We have work to do. Our lives should be so wrapped up in the Lord that the thought of our existence brings fear to the devil. Step your faith up and embrace your call as a Spiritual warrior…That’s a real Proverbs 31 woman.
