The Weight Is Lifting!

I don't handle stress well.

So if God promises me joy, I want it.

worries  insecurities   fears  
money problems   anger  
 hopelessness   depression  

The weight is lifting now!

"Ask and it shall be given to you, seek and you shall find, knock and the door shall be opened unto you."
- Matthew 7:7

I am asking for a worry free, joyous life despite my circumstances. The weight is lifting.

My pastor spoke on how God's love is unconditional but his promises are conditional. If you don't work, you won't have what you need. That is conditional. If you don't come to God and fellowship with him, he will not be able to bless you as he intends to!

God's blessings take faith and discipline. I don't mean I have to jump through hoops to get God to notice me- I mean that he has given me the way to a fulfilling life because he knows how things work so I should listen and learn from the expert, right?

I'm making the effort to listen and obey more. It is working! The weight is lifting!

  1. I needed to hear this. Strange how we KNOW something but still choose otherwise...because I'm lazy or...rebellious?
