Thinking on this makes me also want to say....
We just need to allow the Lord to set us free from all the things that have us all tied up. Jesus wants us to be free and He wants us to allow Him to have free reign in our life. When we do that then He is able to work in us and give us the things He wants us to have. When we allow Him to set us free from all of the things we hold onto....fear and doubt being major ones....then we will be truly free and He can do things in our life that we really never thought were possible. When the Lord presents you with opportunities you need to take them especially when you know that's what He wants you to do....even when you don't think you can do it....that same opportunity may never come again. If you don't you could be really missing out on what the Lord has for you.
To tie both of these things together....
Doing things together....with other Christians....is good. Whether it be inside the walls of the church or in another setting. The Lord moves anywhere that we are gathered together.
These things are probably on my mind tonight because of what happened in my day today. Whatever the reason is....I just needed to write my thoughts...and feelings....tonight because I am learning that the more I let go....the more Jesus is real to me.
I didn't have a scripture to share so I just opened my bible and this is what I read. Knowing where my thoughts are coming from....this is what the scripture needs to be.
Take Up the Cross and Follow Him24 Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. 25 For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it.
"until we see JESUS....face to face"
