Details.

29 Dec

“God I thank you for commanding your Angels over me” I sent this tweet out while sitting in the airport waiting to board my flight. Less than 5 minutes later, I received notification that my flight was cancelled. Did I get upset, frustrated or annoyed about the inconvenience? No, my mind immediately shifted into “Ok, Lord what do I do next?”

Honestly, I can’t help but thank God for the reminder that he is ultimately in charge of my life. I know flight cancellations are common but I believe it was God gracious hand upon my life. Ordering and directing my steps. Who knows what he just protected me from? Or even who I might meet on my next flight. Whatever the case may be, it was a FANTASTIC reminder that he is in control.

As I reflect over this past year I praise God for already working 2015 out! I’m a firm believer in setting goals, vision boards etc…but I also let God do his work. Life can be an exciting adventure if we surrender to Gods will.

Psalms 37:23 “The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives.”

I Choose Grace

9 Dec

I really need people to understand the difference between law and grace. I do believe that God gives us rules, boundaries and standards to live by. This is his way to shield and keep us protected (Grace/Mercy) I’ve personally learned this through trial and error, however, I’ve also experience that living under the law produced much anxiety, condemnation, and a distorted view of who God really is to me. Not really understanding Jesus finished work at the cross. His death, burial and resurrection freed me from the law because he was the ultimate sacrifice. I now can walk in liberty, power and boldness because of Jesus. The more I focused on his unfailing love I noticed that my behaviors changed. I no longer had the desire to do what I used to do. As Christians we walk a fine line and many people don’t understand or they abuse the gift of Grace. Paul said “Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? Certainly not!” God loves us no matter what! He freely gave us Jesus…Himself in flesh…offered up the ultimate sacrifice so I can live! So I choose to live and live FREE IN CHRIST! Not man made “rules” but God given rules (I really like to say boundaries) And if we really think about it God has less rules than man.
