How did you do that?
Where does my ability to do anything that I set out to do come from?
I mean seriously, how can anyone expect me to deal with the things life throws at me day after day?
I seriously get the Zombie popularity because if I’m not careful, that is who I feel like I am.
You know doing just enough to SURVIVE,
Sometimes I don’t even feel HUMAN.
What does it even mean to be HUMAN?
I believe our humanity is defined according to the RICHES of GOD’S GLORY.
By HIS strength we have POWER, by HIS Holy Spirit.
It is by His Spirit that we can exist — the only way we can know and feel LOVE for others and ourselves.
Have you noticed that people tend to throw that word LOVE around like an old suitcase?
“Love” is often baggage you and I carry around.
It brings back memories of our first love…
Or maybe the LOVE of an ex…
And what about the LOVE of our parents?
Often we look at these imperfect loves and assume that is what love is supposed to look like, but things happen, even with the best intentions.
I believe instinctively, we know when something doesn’t look, or feel like the unmatchless love God.
This has nothing to do with religion and everything to do with the relationship we have with our creator.
In, Ephesians 3:16-21, Paul writes to believers in Ephesus the following:
I’m asking God to give you a gift from the wealth of His glory. I pray that He would give you inner strength and power through His Spirit. Then Christ will live in you through faith. I also pray that love may be the ground into which you sink your roots and on which you have your foundation. This way, with all of God’s people you will be able to understand how wide, long, high, and deep His love is. You will know Christ’s love, which goes far beyond any knowledge. I am praying this so that you may be completely filled with God. Glory belongs to God, whose power is at work in us. By this power, He can do infinitely more than we can ask or imagine. Glory belongs to God in the church and in Christ Jesus for all time and eternity! Amen.
I believe that it is with HIS STRENGTH we will be able to do more as a society than just exist!
We will have the ability to live to our full and unique potential!
How do you cope with the things that happen to you?
