Hey hey peopleeeee * saying it with the E emphasised*loll.. How y’all doing… I know I am doing great and I am sure you are on top as well…
I am quite impressed with myself I must say….. all because it seems like my BLOG and I ..have become best mates… loll.. I have written quite a lot over the weekend(draft versions saved)… plus wrote today’s post on my long hour journey to work……. *hi- five blog*… heheeh (I am such a clown)… o well I believe my BLOG and I have decided to make this relationship work…..*right blog*……… hehehe hmmm… let’s see how long this *love relationship will last*.hehehhe……
This weekend was quite a weird one for me … and when I say weird it was unusual because for once in a long time….. I had some REST….I literally did absolutely NADA.. all weekend.. well apart from catching up on my sleep and meeting up with very close friends. Friends who regardless of my absence due to my extreme work schedule… and self inflicted stress..LOL… they still look out for me….*muah……. Love you loads XX*…..
Considering I had a lot of time on my hands over the weekend, I did a lot of thinking /reading /day dreaming/ screening / finding meaning and then eventually screaming (lol) …. about a lot of things in my life. It was like I did a complete stock take, stock check, stock delete.. on a lot of things….. Which lead to a conversation I had with God…. “Is this GOD’s choice— or what I consider a GOOD choice?”
Most of the time, we do have the luxury of choosing between people or circumstances that are totally bad or totally good.*i think.. I might be wrong*….. I also believe nearly all our choices in life will appear good in some way, but only one will be part of God’s perfect plan —His best for us. In saying that, the chief enemy I believe we fight in choosing God’s best will be our own strong inclination to make a good choice instead of a God choice.
For example…. let us talk about falling in love*my FAV topic… heheh* or even more direct MARRIAGE. When we decide on our own that we’re compatible or totally in love with another person and therefore refuse to seek or wait for God’s instruction, He will allow us to choose the good—His permissive will. But we will miss the best—His perfect will. The problem is that things don’t work right when we’re in only the permissive will of God (1 Corinthians 6:12). This principle applies to everything in life not only marriage… it could be your present location, present Job, investment decisions …anything at all.
During my weekend pondering session, I realised that I should seek God more and find out where God is working and join Him there. Rather than what I have likely done, which is to say, “God, here’s what I want to do. Will You bless me?…. I hear u saying.. “Ok… What is the difference between the two”…. same thing init…… well the difference is the approach. One approach puts God at the centre while the other puts us at the centre. When we make choices independent of God and then ask for His blessing, we’re asking God to approve an idea that originated with us, not Him.
Once again that put me back to thinking about the difference between a good idea and a God idea. My mum once told me, “If God gave you a brain, He must expect you to use it”?.. Thinking about that statement I decided to search the bible for an answer* it is amazing the kind of stuff you find in that book- some deeepp STUFF***… To aid my search, I asked myself this question ….Even though God gave me the ability to reason and make choices, what did He say about my thoughts compared to His?… well his ANSWER to me was in (Isaiah 55:8-9)
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the LORD. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.” … (I have read that scripture so many times …but trust me I now see it in a different LIGHT)
In my 1-1 with God he literally said to me .. “ Girl MY (GODs) knowledge and wisdom is far greater than yours. I can see the entire landscape while you are concentrating on a single valley”.* u can imagine my sad smiley face at this point… hehheeh…..
I would be foolish to try to fit God into a mould and conform Him to my plans. Yes, He did give me a brain, and I should be smart enough to know that God’s even smarter…..
The Bible declares that as a man “thinketh in heart, so is he” Proverbs 23:7. What a strange thought right… How can you think with your heart?… silly right …. Well, I normally associate thought with the brain and feelings with the heart. Thus I feel the phrase “to think in the heart” refers to thoughtful reflection. A lot of my ideas are briefly entertained by my mind without ever penetrating the heart. But those ideas that do grasp me in my innermost parts are the ideas that shape my life. Thus I can confidently tell you that when our thoughts are corrupted, our lives follow suit…. WE ARE WHAT WE THINK…… U DIGggg…:-)
Shoot… my train is coming to a haul… time to get off and continue my short walk to work… Trying to avoid stopping over at Mc d’s to get my breakfast wrap top up… What u haven’t tried Mc Donald’s Breakfast wrap…!!!… U are missing big time men*… hehehehhe..
