I'm Trying

Trying by eleventy seven, I'm trying to live trying to hope trying to love trying to cope. We are all trying in this world and everyone fails. We may try to find a cure to sin, but sin continues. There is no cure to stop sinning. Then why do we fight? Because He fought for us. Do you want to stand up or give up? God specifically gave us instructions on how to conquer sin. He gave us the bible, the holy spirit, prayer and the armor of God. And because Jesus overcame sin we have the same ability to overcome sin if we choose to.

2 corinthians 10:5-6 from the message says: 5 We use our powerful God-tools for smashing warped philosophies, tearing down barriers erected against the truth of God, fitting every loose thought and emotion and impulse into the structure of life shaped by Christ. 6 Our tools are ready at hand for clearing the ground of every obstruction and building lives of obedience into maturity. And the new king james version: 5 casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, 6 and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.

So what I'm trying to get to is that we can try in this world because of Jesus Christ. There is a question that has been on my mind that someone on the radio asked: if someone doesn't die for our sins then who will? And that question can be used in most topics. If we are all sinning then who won't sin? If no who will lead then who will? YOU. You are qualified. Go lead the world with Christ on the thrown. You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you- Philippians 4:13. All you have to do is ask Him! Lead. This is for those who read (although I only know of one person that reads my post) this post. Live the three e's. "Be an example, encourage others and endure in an authentic relationship with Christ". Try, and try hard. Don't give up trying.

Light Up The Sky by The Afters

God showed me that He is with me. I was listening to the song light up the sky by the afters. The lyrics go light, light, light up the sky, light up the sky to show me you are with me, I, I, I can't deny, no I can't deny that you are right here with me, you open my eyes so I can see you all around me, light, light, light up the sky, light up the sky to show me that you are with me.

The previous nights I played that song during worship and the sky lit up, it was soooo amazing, the sky was awesome and through that God said He is with me. I was shocked... the God of this earth with ... people is with one of the least important. I only milk cows. I would like He would rather be with the president or the church. The most important people and things but He chose me to be on His team. To be apart of something holy, to be a part of His kingdom and His glory. So this one night was different because it just didn't feel right but the last song I played was light up the sky and the clouds weren't lighting up.

The whole thirty mins the clouds didn't light up. So as I was listening there was no lightning and I said to myself even if the clouds don't light up I know God is with me, it was the last part of the chorus and this HUGE lightning strike flashed and I was just amazed beyond words, even during prayer I couldn't say anything. I said God I am speechless, I can't express how astonished I was, I said God only you can describe how I feel because God knows us better then ourselves and He knows every feeling. God's love overflows like a pitcher with water when it rushes down and spills. Search  the dictionary and wright down "authentic relationship with Jesus/God", what does it mean to have an authentic relationship with God?
