So today me and Chloe were filming a new video (which should be up in several days, stay tuned for that one), and we were talking about a part of a book I’ve read several times in the past. I love how I can still learn things even if i’ve read it before, because God was teaching me!
He wants our whole selves. He designed a life and a plan especially for us, and He wants us to trust Him. The book says that it breaks His heart when we turn from Him and do our own thing. He longs for us to dance for Him, to live every moment for Him. I’m challenged in that- to glorify Him in literally every single thing I do. I can definitely say that isn’t true for every area of my life. I don’t make a constant conscious effort to bring Him glory. I’m ashamed, but it’s an area I am working on.
I often let things get the better of me- anger, frustration, stubbornness. I can be quite a temperamental person at times. With God’s help, that has really gotten better in my life, but I am most definitely not perfect! I pray every day that God helps me be more patient, loving, and tolerant. When I strive to glorify Him every moment, those things are much easier to keep under control.
So ask Him for what you want! If you want to be more patient, ask Him! If you want to have more love for people, ask Him!
Keep asking, and it will be given to you. Keep searching, and you will find. Keep knocking, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who searches finds, and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. Matthew 7:7-8
God is good ALL the time, remember that! He gives good gifts to those who love Him, and he longs to give you the desires of your heart and the riches of His kingdom! Keep pressing on and fighting the good fight, you will be rewarded for your efforts, God has promised that!
What about you? Do you make an effort to glorify Him every minute of every day? Is that something you struggle with? I’d love to hear your response to this 🙂
Be blessed! 🙂
