Restoration

Today’s post is about digging into the broken places in your life. It’s about restoration.

I was thinking about what spiritual post I wanted to end the year with, and the word ‘restoration’ appeared in my mind. I like when the Holy Spirit talks back to me! When I thought of the meaning of this word, I thought to myself, this is what I need in my life. I don’t know about you, but I need some things to be restored in my personal life. I need God’s help to overcome some personal mountains that I’ve been combating.

Willingness to Please God

November 7, 2019

Do you have willingness to please God? Is it your desire to be obedient to God’s will for your life? Or do you just want Him to bless your own desires?

 

What is willingness to please God?

The Bible says that, “Without faith, it’s impossible to please God” – Hebrews 11:6. I think that we need faith to be willing to please God. To please God, we must have a heart that wants to please God. Then, with intention, we must create a plan to carry out God’s instructions to us. It is necessary to be intentional and purposeful with our willingness to please God.

Submitting to God’s Will

What is it like, submitting to God’s will?

Recently, I was having a discussion with a relative about something they wanted for themselves. We were talking about praying to God about this goal that my relative wanted to achieve. She wanted to know that God would grant her what she wanted to achieve. I think this is where many of us, including believers, have difficulty with trusting God. Submitting to God’s will is not what we set out to do; instead, we want God to submit to our will.

I pointed out to her that she should pray about this goal, but when she prayed about it, she must show humility to God. I told her to pray the words, ‘If it is Your will…if it is not Your will, help me to receive Your answer and accept whatever that answer is.’

Is our life accidental or not?

 Whether we know it or not, we are all searching for something.

At the core of us, we all are searching for belonging.  Everyone wants to know that we matter to someone and that when we are gone, there will be people grieving the loss of us.

Most people tend to seek from humans what only God can provide. We tend to look for our deepest joys and our life purposes in our mates, careers, and children. As long as we as we practice these habits, we will be filled with disappointment and sometimes, deep sadness.
