Over the last 6 months I’ve running on empty. Sadly that is the truth about my walk with God and how our relationship has developed in the last little while. I, however, seen the light at the end of the tunnel per se. I have had the help of many, many people whose hands and hearts has been extended to me helping to recover and recuperate from these dark times in my walk with God. I am forever greatfull to God for putting these people in my life.
One scripture that helped me hang on as in for dear life is found inthe book of Jude 1:17
A call to persevere
17But, dear friends, remember what the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ foretold. 18They said to you, “In the last times there will be scoffers who will follow their own ungodly desires.” 19These are the men who divide you, who follow mere natural instincts and do not have the Spirit.
20But you, dear friends, build yourselves up in your most holy faith and pray in the Holy Spirit. 21Keep yourselves in God’s love as you wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring you to eternal life.
22Be merciful to those who doubt; 23snatch others from the fire and save them; to others show mercy, mixed with fear—hating even the clothing stained by corrupted flesh.
I found some deep meaning in this scripture because it made remember that our salvation isn’t something to take lightly. I also understand I’m not alone in the battle to seek the glory of God. People will come against us and bad mouth our actions. They will try and put you to shame and even your own thoughts will be against you in a self destruction manner, but because we are in God and have learned the path to salvation we have a chance to advance in the love of God. relearning this have given me hope and courage to do what god wants of me, to seek and save the lost. verse 23 says snatch other from the fire and save them. I know i’m not the only one who has been afflicted with doubt and disposition, there are other brothers and sisters out there needing my help in prayer, companionship, perseverence and love.
I will try to do this more often. I have always loved to write and maybe this can be very helpfull to me. I will try to post my full studies here for all of you to see and hopefuly share.
just rememeber our God is a God of broken souls.
