okay so i have to go out tonight, so ill have to do this now before i go !
and guess what ! i got my hair cut........ its short LOL
so ill admit to feeling "numb" in my faith lately.
its been really concerning me too
in the past couple weeks i felt like my spirituality went to a still , like i didnt feel growth, i couldnt tell if i felt Gods presence with me, and i felt like i wasnt really going anywhere lately you know?
even wierder...... music is my life. Worship... especially praise is my most favorite thing in the world. theres a joy i feel that is really unexplainabel. but i havent been feeling it lately, ive been really distracted, and uneasy these past couple weeks and that scared me.
but talking with my mentor i realized a few things and there was a chapter that really helped me out . it gave me comfort and rest.
In Psalm chapter 1 it says:
Blessed is the man who does no walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers.
But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night.
He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither.
Whatever he does prospers.
Not so the wicked!
They are like chaff that he wind blows away.
Therefore the wicked will not stand int he judgment, nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.
For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous, bu the way of the wicked will perish.
i was told
"I love how it says the man who meditates on God's word day and night is like a tree planted by streams of water which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither.
That's my prayer for you, Grace. Be that tree. Sometimes you might feel like you're just the same, but because you're planted by streams of water, you'll yield your fruit... but IN SEASON. so don't worry! If you want something practical, try and spend a short moment each day in silence... just listening to God, just sitting in His presence. Wait for him, wait until you know he's there. Sometimes just knowing God's with you is enough. It reminds you of how REAL he is."
we all need to be that tree !
keep praying, keep seeking God and just meditate on God's word everyday
i hope everyones day is going good, and have a good week !
