What I Know

What I Know
I know that I am not as good as I need to be. I know that oft times I am a failure. If I am truly honest with myself sometimes it is not so pretty. This post is about my relationship with God. I am sometimes a failure. Many times if I will just admit it. I walk through this life doing the things that are fun. Playing games.....Oh yes! I don't like to think of it like that but that is exactly what I do while putting God on hold. I know that my goal and lives ambition should be winning souls. Witnessing and inviting, No not just that but I should be literally compelling others to come. I should be introducing someone else to the love of Jesus. Jesus died for me and then reached way down to the miserable depths of despair and wrapped me in his arms and saved me. He filled me with the Holy 
Ghost with the evidence of speaking with other tongues as is illustrated in Acts 2:38. 
I have missed to many church services lately. How dare I. No one has reprimanded me or even ask me why but when I look in the mirror and see the reflection of my soul I ask myself again "What am I doing?"  Do I really believe it is the end time or not?. Well I do! It is so direct and blatant in the Bible. We are warned and things are happening at a breakneck pace. Now back to the title of this post "What I Know"   What I know is that I better get off of my duff and do something. I am called of God to do a work and to help change my world, What I know is that there are no excuses. When I stand before Jesus who was beaten and hung on a cross and he looks at me with those loving deep serious eyes and ask "What did you do" How many souls did you win"  "Why not"  I can't just stand there and say that I was too busy. I was painting, or shopping, or watching TV or many other things. What I know is that now is the time for me to wake up and do what I know to do. I have caught myself kinda wanting to blame someone else but when I look within and really see the truth it is me who is not doing what I should. Now today I want to turn around and put God first. I want to witness and pray and fast and win souls. Today I want to share with someone else "What I Know...."

It Seems So Silly

      It seems so silly when I read my last post. So silly when I realize that in my desperation I forget to let God be the strong arm that he is. Should I liken myself to the time when Moses smote the rock instead of speaking to it. Or maybe it is like Elisha when he hid himself from Jezebel and thought that there were no other people in the land who loved God. Where is he I say and then I answer that He was here all the time. Yep! He was standing right there where I needed him to be.
     Last Wednesday I got a call from the hospital where I used to work. You won't believe that they offered me a job and want me to start in two weeks. I have pondered it a lot. Remember I even prayed that they would call but now that they have I think I will just stay right where I am at. Now I am comfortable where I am. At the very job which God gave me almost a year ago. Yes...That same job I wanted to leave shortly after I started there.
     It seems funny sometimes when we realize that we are right where we should be and if we will just wait on God he will always come through. He can make the uncomfortable, comfortable. He really does prepare a table before us in the presence of our enemies. I have so much to tell but will leave it here for now but I am going to try and write soon. very very soon.
 Deuteronomy 6: 4-5  Hear Oh Israel The Lord our God is one Lord. Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart and with all thy soul and with all thy might.
