…This ‘self’ thread I’m pulling from your spiritual sweater might seem harmless, but trust me, it’s not…
God knows our hearts, and He wants our thoughts, actions and words to align with our faith in Him. Each time we open our mouths, we have an opportunity to speak in a way that is glorifying to Him.
Now that we have opened with such lofty goals, let’s get down to the nitty gritty. The truth is, it’s really hard to filter everything we say through the lens of our faith. Especially in this world of fast paced communication. We often speak before we think….maybe too often.
This series is practical. Yes, we understand the goal is to always speak God’s truth, from His Word, in His ways. But we also understand that none of us is perfect on this side of glory. So don’t be intimidated, just sit in with us as we struggle together to do a little better, a little bit at a time. God will meet us all right where we are, right where we need Him.
God’s Photo Stream
There are many ways we let the world know we belong to each other. Maybe you were really lucky and you had a best friend with whom you split a heart necklace. Later in life we put rings on each other.
Why do we do this? We do it because we are all born with a need to be loved and to belong somewhere. Who is mine? Whose am I? So I put my stamp on you and I take your stamp on me.
What Is My Calling?
The goal of any calling He would put on our lives will first be intimacy with Him. Remember that He is always after a deeper relationship between you and Him. When I heard the calling for Study With Friends Ministries, I was not looking for my calling. I was seeking hard after my Savior and my God, and trying to grow His Spirit in me. Intimate time with Him and a growing relationship with Him will naturally produce conversation with Him in your spirit. That conversation may include a calling, it may include a conviction. Be present for both.
