One of the main things that the Lord has been speaking to me about since I have been here in Atlanta, is the denial of myself. To have a pure love for the Lord and for Amanda to be dead, and Jesus to live in and through me. 100%. Well my friend Wesley Huth, who is also an intern for The Watch, has some awesome revelation about this topic. He wrote about sanctification and pure love on his blog. I recommend everyone to read it!

Check it out here!!!

Matt. 11:28-30 says “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

This is a verse that I was meditating on for one of my classes, Cultivating Intimacy. The assignment was to meditate on a verse and then to write a paper on it. You can read my very unprofessional paper at the bottom 🙂

But I am really moved by the words that come out of Jesus’ mouth. He says “and you will find rest for your souls.” Wow! This is an amazing promise! Our soul is made up of our mind, will and emotions. So my mind, can be at rest. Many times my thoughts are crazy! I am thinking so many different things and it causes me to worry and to stress. But my mind can be at rest! My will can be at rest. Usually my will wants to do whatever it wants and not what the Lord wants. I have to fight it, its my flesh rising up and trying to come against the Spirit. But my will can be at rest, in Jesus’ will! My emotions can be at rest! My emotions are the craziest out of all three. They usually are all over th place and everything affects them. But they can be at rest.

This is so encouraging! In Jesus I find the rest that I need! I am trusting in this, even at times when I am moving in my own flesh and I’m not resting, its because I’m not allowing myself to. If I come to Jesus, I will find rest for my soul! Woohoo!

Bring rest to my soul Jesus! I love you and thank you for it!

I am finding out (because I guess I thought I was pretty mature) that I am immature. Especially when it comes to having conversations with other believers on what they believe and why they believe it. Not on the foundational subjects such as is Jesus the Son of God or was He raised 3 days later. These are very clearly laid out in scripture.

But we have been having discussions about things that I have never been taught, or if I have been taught it, it wasn’t the biblical teaching and I’ve just thought it for years without actually studying it for myself. So I am being challenged with listening to others, and valuing what they have to say. And the biggest thing I am learning is that no matter what, you cannot believe something just because someone says it. You have to search it out in the Bible, the Word of God, and ask the Spirit of God to reveal to you what He is saying.

I haven’t done this in depth in the past. I believe something because someone made it sound good, or maybe it is what God is saying about a topic but I don’t know why God is saying it or where He says it in scripture. So now my desire is to take all these questions I have and search it out! I want to know what the bible says, and I want to know what is on the heart of the Father!

And in these conversations I’ve been having, I want to prove why I am right, and I can’t really. I get frustrated at others because they believe something different, but I have no reason to! I need to value others and what they are saying!

These discussions that I am talking about are discussions concerning the things of God. And these discussions are with others who are searching out what the bible says about things and they want to know the heart of the Father also. They are not with people who are not Christians or people of other religions or anything like that.

This has been a great learning experience. God is exposing things in my heart not like Him! He wants me to DIE TO MYSELF so that He can LIVE IN ME AND THROUGH ME! Praise the Lord! Continue to do it God!

Prayer for Tricia

I’m asking that we would all join in prayer for Tricia. I’ve written about her a few times. She had a baby while her lungs were failing because of cystic fibrosis. Well she was diagnosed with cancer after her double lung transplant and they did 5 weeks of treatment. The treatment didn’t do what they were expecting. There are more growths, some grew larger, and none went away. So they were pretty discouraged today.

I know that God is the Healer. So what medicine can’t do, He can! Lets pray for the cancer to be gone, in the Name of Jesus!

You can visit their site and find out more information at cfhusband.blogspot.com.

Thank you for joining in prayer with me!
