romans 8:28 never made more sense than this morning as i contemplated how so many times the many bad decisions i make lead me to Repentance, like a child i flee back to my father . Im so easily satisfied by worldly pleasures that i normally despise as soon as i am reminded of you and your glory.
I am a half-hearted creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea. We are far too easily pleased. – C.S. Lewis
lORD WHY MUST I PLAY IN THE PIG SLOP when you are waiting on me to come home so you can rejoice .my boy is back he will say! Lord i will never understand how you leave the 99 for the 1 but you do and for this i will praise and thank you.
Lord i thank you for all the times you didnt give me what i wanted, for my desires are wicked without you teach me to pray like you do. i dont want to ask you for things that will hinder me from you. you work all things together for my Good bc i love you and am called according to your purpose. Lord EVERY TIME im rejected, turned down, let down, turned away, fail, its all you trying to turn me back to the mission and the christ whos life i now live in me. To live is christ and to die is gain.
Lord i wish this could be the last time i run from you but i know i gravity to worldly things so lord teach me how to fall with grace that i make quickly seek your face.
living for his glory cant wait to see the end of this story.
