I Sin Too!

You know what the best thing is about being in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ is?
That the Lord is Gracious, Slow to anger, rich in love and that he is good to all. That even when i sin, as i do so often, he receives me back...
It's like a broken record so many times in my life, where i mess up and have to turn around and ask for his forgiveness that cleanses. I just actually allowed my sinful flesh to take over and speak louder than the spirit, and i gave in. Just that fast, i gave into momentary pleasures. What do i do?
I have to realize that i am not perfect. That i am a woman who struggles with many things, but i am also a woman who delights and is striving to live for God.
While talking about this, the story that i am reminded of is Mary Magdalene, before she was stoned, the Lord came and said "If any one of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone at her." John 8:7. How amazing is that? The only man who can truly stone me is Jesus and his love knows nothing but forgiveness....
It's so hard though. That our righteousness is nothing but a filthy rag!
Tonight the Lord has revealed to me that i am not above ever sinning, that it is going to happen, but when it does, that i should run to him and fall at his feet!
Lord, how many times i do this! I might as well live there! HAHAHHA, that's what he wants. He wants us to want him, to serve him above everything else. To kneel to him! Lord please forgive me!

Hahahahha, while sitting here, i just keep thinking the thoughts that Satan seduced me with and how he leaves you in the end with guilt. How, unlike our father, he doesn't stick around for the heartache! Wow, thank you Lord for showing me that!

Lord, i just come to you right now and i thank you for your forgiveness lord. And i just offer my body, my spirit, my heart my everything to you again once more. Lord, i come and ask you to break me from pride and selfishness and my sinful nature. Lord you are good to all, as your word says. I believe this to be true, not because i have read it but because i have experienced it!


I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness could be gained through the law, Christ died for nothing!"( Galatians 2:21)

Wow, i was just sitting here, listening to the word and jotting down verses in my journal and this verse came up. How much weight does this really carry... If Grace or righteousness could be gained through the law, then Christ died for nothing!!!!!
WOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWWW.... Christ redeemed us by the curse of the law by becoming a curse( Galatians 3:13) then it follows to say that "cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree". WOW! Amen

Jesus i just thank you for showing me these small detailed aspects of your love for me Jesus. You became a curse for us that we would no longer live under that weight. Thank you Jesus!

Exodus 33:18

This morning i sat to listen to a Joyce Meyer podcast and i was totally hit, when she qouted Exodus 33:18 "Lord if i have found favor in your eyes, i pray that you would show me your ways"... Wow, it's so funny how we forget to pray that simple prayer. Instead i find myself praying for me, myself, my husband, a new car, and everything else. Lord, just show me your will that i may follow it
