17 I love those who love me,
and those who seek me find me.
18 With me are riches and honor,
enduring wealth and prosperity.
19 My fruit is better than fine gold;
what I yield surpasses choice silver.
20 I walk in the way of righteousness,
along the paths of justice,
21 bestowing a rich inheritance on those who love me
and making their treasuries full.
THIS IS TRUE ~ GOD loves YOU Everyday.....
Throughout life, we find ourselves are different places. We had hopes and dreams that just changed over time. When I was little I wanted to grow up and be a Hippie. It was the late 60's and our world was changing. I was beginning High School and saw how people had freedom or did they? All I really knew was Hippie's could wear what they wanted, say what they wanted and express themselves. I grew up in a house where my mom picked my clothes and told me often to be quiet. I didn't realize being a Hippie was drugs and alcohol too. I sure didn't want that part. I was a child who didn't have friends to play with really until middle school. Acutally middle school was known then as Junior High. I only knew I liked the word Freedom.
Freedom is a word we still hear about in our lives. Yet, there are rules we must follow and become a better person in life. Freedom is really found in God. A mind that is free, is a mind that knows the heart of God. I am human and I get worried over things I see or hear.
For example, I got back a bad test result concerning my liver count. The count is way to high and I know I have a liver that tends to be high in count. I don't drink alcohol at all, but the doctor told me that my liver says different. Anyway, I was scared when I read the number. The average number is from 5-45 and mine came back at 501. What? This immediately made my mind of peace go crazy. I always write about fear and faith don't live together. If you have faith, you cast fear away. Yet, someone that day, I stayed worried and found myself with a headache and tears. I had to stir my faith somehow, so I began to listen to music and pray. I still waiting to see a specialist and would love your prayers.
1 Peter 5:7 King James Version (KJV)
Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
This is true, God love you and me. God wants us to cast all our cares, go ahead and cast it! It's easy to say you have faith, but a little harder to live it. I want to live what I teach and be an example of being real in my life. I write from the middle of my heart and do my best daily to live it. Freedom of one of the mind too. Let us turn our thoughts to him and let him guide us as only he can. The doctor isn't in charge of my life, but can certainly help. I'm waiting to hear from a speicalist. God is the one who created us and knows our beginning and end. I trust my doctor so much and I know she wants the best for me too. She has studied and learned to help others. I also believe in the power of prayer.
Romans 12:1-2 New International Version (NIV)
A Living Sacrifice
Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
Time to worship God in music and within my soul. I know that God does miracles and I've seen prayer change things. So today, I urge you to follow your dreams. Ask God for strength to go through whatever you face and believe that he is in charge. Whatever we do, we must do it with our complete heart. Renewing our minds when they wonder from freedom in God and holding on for unseen things in our lives. I pray daily for the readers of my blog, your family and friends. You are important to God and to me. I pray today that you see the blessings around your life and hold on for greater.
I pray always for those who are hurting in life. So many people walk around with minds that can not rest. Their now is way too much and they need God. I find that we don't just need God, but we need positive people in our lives. If you don't have a home church, find one. Reach out and don't stay trapped in hurt or disappointment in life. Life is way to short not to live it in freedom of mind and soul. If you can't go to church, then find positive TV Teachers that can help. I would recommend Joyce Meyer, TD Jakes, Priscilla Shirer or Andy Stanley. Just a few of the positive people I listen too.
Philippians 4:13 New International Version (NIV)I can do all this through him who gives me strength.
Freedom of mind is so important!
