I decided to take the opportunity to graduate in 2021, pushing myself harder and harder to the point of having several mental breakdowns a day, constantly wanting to die. I wanted to graduate in 2021 because that’s what I was “supposed to do.” Truth is it wasn’t, and I am now suffering from those consequences. Yet even in my suffering God has been faithful to me. I barely have any friends, I’ve angered many people including those who I love because I’ve constantly quit jobs this year. I’ve hurt myself and hurt others. I’m exhausted, but God is still good.
I’ve been able to change lives because I love others. I’ve also tried to people please instead of God please. I’ve done so many things and have inflicted trauma on myself because of it.
I write this to say never follow yourself or others. Follow the God whom saves. He is faithful. He was trying to protect me from everything I’ve endured. Lord be with me. I am so sorry for the sins I’ve committed. For wanting to prove myself to those in whom could never save me, as I cannot save myself either. Only you can save, only you can live and choose who lives. I love you Lord, I pray this year be greater than what I could ever imagine and that the person reading this is blessed by my testimony and that they remember to follow you, even in human error. I love you,
“Jesus loves you” is not an excuse to sin. Jesus loves us so much that He died for us to be freed from sin. He doesn’t want us to sin against Him, the Holy Spirit, or His Father in heaven. When Jesus died for us that was the greatest act of love to ever be. That a righteous man, both fully God and man, would take on the responsibility of our sins and resurrect giving us life. Only Jesus could die on the cross for us. We are unworthy, but HIS LOVE gives us worthiness. He declares us righteous and goes before our Father before us, allowing us to be righteous to God our Father. Jesus loves us, yes. But that is not an excuse to sin. It is a call to accept Him as your Lord and Savior, to change our old ways and live a new life in Christ Jesus. Thank you Lord for your love, your peace, your grace, and your mercy in Jesus name. Amen. ❤️
The Bible reminds us that Our Lord and Savior says all things are possible with God. For the New Testament tells us “Jesus looked at them intently and said, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But not with God. Everything is possible with God.” (Mark 10:27, NLT) Even in times of racial injustice, a pandemic, and despair, God is STILL GOOD!
He is a GOOD GOD! With Him ALL things are possible, even the things that seem humanly impossible. It all works out for HIS WILL which in return works out for OUR GOOD!
Know that God has a plan for you (Jeremiah 29:11), plans for good hope, and a future, when you follow Jesus. Remember that, He has a plan for you, it’s working out for your good, and He is holding you up with His victorious right hand.
You cannot fail with God. Don’t worry. He’s got you.
How often do we compromise our now because of the past or what we think the future may look like?
The Lord tells us we are wiped clean from our past and made as white as snow. (Isaiah 1:18)
The Lord also tells us not to worry about the future for he knows the plans he has for us. (Matthew 6:34 & Jeremiah 29:11)
So why do we do it?
That’s an answer for each of us individually to ask ourselves and put a stop to the devil’s antics of wanting us to feel unworthy or scared that something from our past will creep up upon us, or that our future will be affected by the place or situation we are in currently.
We serve a God as Christians that guarantees peace when we trust in him fully, promises us eternal life when we believe in Jesus Christ as the Messiah, our Lord, and Savior.
So why do we worry?
Because we are so wrapped up in society and what the world thinks that we forget that the creator of the world, who happens to be our Father, is the one who controls our paths when we give full authority of our lives to Him!
Turn to him, Give it all away. He’s ready for you.
Jesus loves you all, so much so that he gave his life for you to be at peace and not worry about your past, present, or future. ❤
