Sometimes our walk of faith becomes a chore. Instead of happiness we mope around with long faces and kill ourselves trying to follow the rules. Plus, we try to make sure everyone else is following them too. Where’s the joy?
Take a step back. Remember God’s love for you first. You don’t have to do anything to win this, you can’t. Yes, we must repent of our sins, but God’s love let’s you do this without fear of condemnation. Instead, you are set free by the blood of Christ.
God is love and you are his beloved. Rejoice and be glad!
Dear loving Lord,
I’m hardheaded and Stuck in my ways. But I don’t want to be.
I want to change, I need to. How can l?
Show me how, Oh Lord. I know it begins with you. How can I doubt your love?
Do I forget so easily? I heard the truth a thousand times, “Jesus died for me.”
Has my heart grown so cold That even pure innocence Put to death for me Doesn’t move me at all?
Return to me, Oh Lord! May your Spirit take hold once more.
Let your love flow over me As I melt in your hands.
May I be soft and docile, Oh Lord, Mold my weary soul Into something fresh and new.
Let me remember your love Over and over again.
My mind does not fully grasp What my heart yearns for.
I am yours eternally. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
