i was just listening to Graham Cooke in truck on way home from mom’s. He said ” God doesn’t test us to fail us. He tests us to deepen our Faith”. This got me thinking.
i was just at mom’s house and as you can see not for long. She likes to yell at me. As i was at the door i heard ” it is easy to show love to those who love you” my flesh wanted to leave, The Spirit said “Seek God for strength.” Well my flesh won. This is why i prayed that prayer on warring flesh, a post or two ago.
My mom apologized for yelling, and i said “that’s ok i am going to live with you i better get use to it”. Hum just realized wrong answer. Forgive me Lord for i should speak life not death.
Now that i heard what Graham said i see the yelling of mom as testing. How can God show He will give what is needed for situation if we do not ask Him and yield to His saying “seek God for strength to love those that aren’t so nice and friendly to you?
Father Prepare my heart to love my mother. To honor her above myself. i look at all that You could accomplish through our living together, but i am not helping in preparing the way. i must look to only You Lord, and Pray as You told me to. The preparing and reading of our hearts to move in together.
Loving someone i keep finding out is one of the hardest things to do. i think that is why God has it as First and only True commandment. Love God love others. WE CAN’T WITHOUT GOD. God knows this, and wants us to come to Him. Wants us to Bless others with the Love He gives us. i know for myself that if i do not seek God when with my mom, or others for that matter. We both wind up feeling, not so good about the visit. When we know, that we know ,that we can’t do something. Then we ask for help from one who does know. This is humbling. God Exalts the humble.
i want to bring Honor and Glory to You Lord. Use me to show Your Love to her. Strengthen me..
i just was given a glimpse of why Jesus didn’t struggle as much as us with sin. When you are loving people exalting them above yourself, you have no time to get in trouble. Thank You Jesus for showing us the Way, Truth, and Life. Teach me to Love as You Loved. Teach me to pick up my cross and carry it daily in Loving You. May i not boast in my riches but rather in all my weakness’. May i have them ever before me. To Exalt You Lord. Father may i have Wisdom to understand.
