Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. KJV
There is nothing that I do that I can take credit for, I am who I am, and able to do the things I do because that is how God created me. Without Him I am nothing, but with Him I can do all things.
Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. KJV
Living a healthy life style requires the spirit, mind, and body. At one time I only focused on two of these thinking I would be happier, but it was not until I had all three in line that I became truly happy. Recently we went to take family pictures and the woman commented on the fact that I looked so happy, I replied that yes I am happy. I could not tell what she was thinking, but either she did not believe me or she wished she had what I have. I am truly happy with my life, I say all the time I love my life, thank you Jesus. Because it is due to my salvation through Christ that has given me my happiness. Even through trials, tribulations, and temptations I can still be happy.
James 1: 2-4 My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. KJV
While excepting Christ into your life will not make your life perfect, nor will you get everything you want, or never have another problem, but I can say this it will be easier to deal with.
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
Whenever I go through tough times while it does not feel good I know that there will be something good at the end, there always is. I trust God, I admit I do not understand a lot of things He does like taking my children's father from them, or why my 21 year old daughter is so far from me.
Isaiah 55:8-9 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
So, I continue to trust and obey for there's no other way to be happy with Jesus, but to trust and obey.
Because I know that spirituality is important for the whole being once a week I will post a blog on the topic.
Do you know the Savior?
