Monday Morning Motivation...Walk by the Spirit...
This week I listened to a sermon by Curtis Andrusko who was speaking at The Summit Church. It was about the Fruit of the Spirit. This is how I interpreted his message...
I guess there is a way to define us and our walk with or without Christ. We can be directed by our faith or by our "fleshly" desires. I have many desires. I want to travel, I want to enjoy my family, I want to live a safe and secure life. I want to be happy. Nothing wrong with that. What Curtis was talking about was..
I am sure all of us have gone the path of at least some of these things. Thank God that we can find our way back through God's Grace. I can safely say I can't remember my last orgie...
never happened. :-) Most of the things on the list don't apply to me. But, I do get angry, mostly at the one who broke vows to me and to God and divided our family. It is now part of a very painful legacy we leave our children and grandchildren. This is a huge struggle for me. I have to pray about it on a daily basis and give it to God. I don't want that anger to direct my life. It is all part of a very long healing process.
"You can't do it but He can"
"If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit"
I have faith that God can take us at our worst and make our lives a testimony for Him. I pray that the Holy Spirit leads my life and redirects me when I need to take a different path. I give it all to you God.
Happy Monday Everyone!
