It’s been a while. I’ve been busy with work and school. But I decided to stop by and share some things that were on my heart and hope it helps you if you find yourself in a similar situation. So excuse me while I get vulnerable!
Recently, I’ve been feeling a bit hopeless in my relationship with God, especially when it came to my sin . Feeling like I take one step forward then 10,000 backwards. I’d get advice from my friends and beat myself up then be as vulnerable as possible with God and just feel like no change was happening.
Today I was faced with a situation where I lied about something important. I immediately felt guilty and prayed then called a close friend for advice… she didn’t pick up. I was in a panic, thinking about the consequences when something just hit me… “Why am I getting advice on who God made me to be”. That’s when I instantly rectified my lie and was upfront. What clicked in me was that God made me to be a woman of integrity, and He planted His word in me. There may be consequences but I know who I am in God, and that’s all that matters.
We so often go searching for the answers, ignoring what’s already been planted in us by His Grace. The Holy Spirit is real. Ephesians 4:30 says “And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God whom you were sealed for the day of redemption”. Advice is great, biblical, and vital; however, we are also graced with the Spirit of truth which aids us in our time of need. Let’s be bold, let’s be real, and let’s go to the source!
Nothing but Love,
