Have you ever had a bunch of things you would like to do, but you never really get around to? Join the band wagon. This here, sister, is one thing I struggle with. I make all these resolutions to change, which never actually come to be a reality in my life. Why? Because I can't change on my own. I guess this is something I've been realizing lately, ya know? I am so incompetent of doing anything good in my life, then I get discouraged, depressed--call it what you like--instead of turning to the One who can actually CHANGE me. I'm learning that changing happens not when I hold onto my struggles, and try in vain to mold myself, but when I hand my struggles over to God, and cry out "HELP...!"
I seem to learn this lesson over and over, and over, and will continue to be taught this for the rest of my life! I still am struggling, falling...failing. Thanks be to Jesus, who is still there, picking me up, and taking me by the hand!
Anyway, here is a list of thing I would eventually like to do (They aren't all serious. Some are actually quite stupid, but I still want to do them sometime in my life... I guess you could call this a kind of bucket list. Pictures are from Pinterest (you know, that website you go on for hours with all those cool ideas, that you never get around to doing!) * insert a smiley emoticon, because I can't figure out how to do that, and don't want to take the time to figure it out*
-Go on an Adventure
-Drink Coffee Black...and Enjoy it.
-Be A Hermit For a Week.
- Keep My Room Clean on a Regular Basis...
#5 Get into the Habit of Praying Continuously
So anyway, that's the end of my post! I hope you enjoyed it, and that I made you smile! Thank you if you read all the way through it! You guys make my day!
Heaven’s bounties raining down
The Holy Spirit, pouring out
The worthless vessels-- transformed from dust
Into treasured children, adopted sons.
Though hands and feet, crucified,
The love of God was magnified.
To show the price, His blood was shed
The spotless one has paid our debt.
Freed from the prison, shall I return?
Eagerly running to chains and dirt?
Forsaking the freedom, ignoring the cost
All to seek treasures easily lost.
Redeemed saint, why do you sin?
Why does this body rebel once again?
Compelled to run from the God who has loved,
Not without cost, nor sparing His Son.
What I despise, I am most prone
The sins I fight, I love the most,
Daily I battle the desire for more
I struggle, I doubt…I’ve been here before.
Who will free me from this sin?
Thanks be to Christ Jesus once again!
He who won the battle once and for all
And gives me the strength daily—on Him I will call!
