“Beloved, I urge you as sojourners and exiles to abstain from the passions of the flesh, which wage war against your soul.”
(1 Peter 2:11)
Hello my lovelies, it has been minute since I last posted anything but I am back and I am better. Today i am touching with something i feel like I have been struggling with, been different. Over the years I have really struggled to fit in, and at the same time I do not want to compromise my believe and faith in Jesus Christ, it has been a tough battle but I am please to stay that I am fighting from victory and not from victory .
Today in my devotion with God, I stumble upon this word (from Joel Osteen Ministries) that healed and saved me, I really enjoyed it and I thought it would be selfish for me not to share it. Don’t forget to like, comment and follow. Enjoy!!
When you become a follower of Christ, your life becomes different. Everything about you becomes different. When we follow God’s commands, it means we do things differently from others. It means, instead of being offended, we choose love. Instead of insisting on our way, we serve others. It means, instead of trying to be right all the time, we build and lift others up.
This isn’t the way most people in the world act, but that’s okay. We are called to be different. We are called to rise higher. We are called to be examples of God’s grace, mercy and forgiveness. It may not make sense to others, but that’s okay. God will promote you to a new level of blessing and victory when you commit yourself fully to Him. Don’t live a life of mediocrity, live a life of excellence for God. Life a life pleasing to Him and don’t be afraid to be different!
