Good Morning my friends
Jesus loves you for who you are, not for what you do. There are many voices that vie for control of your mind, especially when you sit in silence. You must learn to discern what is His voice and what is not. Ask God’s Spirit to give you this discernment. Many of God’s children run around in circles, trying to obey the various voices that are trying to direct their lives. This results in a fragmented & frustrating pattern of living. Do not fall into this trap. Walk closely with Him in each moment of your life, listening for His directives and enjoying His Companionship. Refuse to let those other voices tie you up in knots. God’s sheep know His voice and follow Him wherever He leads.
One thing you see on almost every table at MD Andersen Mays Clinic are puzzles. They are all in various stages of completion. Each of our lives are similar to those puzzles. Each table could represent the different types of cancer. Each of us are at various stages in our battle. Each of us are at various points in our treatment schedule. Each of us have been going various time lengths.. If we look at our lives, we can see the same stages in our lives.. Our age, our kids ages, careers, etc..etc.. The same can be seen in our relationship with Christ.. Some are just beginning and starting to put the edges together.. Some are are just beginning to work towards the middle. Some are further along and the puzzle is starting to really take shape and look like the picture on the box.. God doesn’t care where you are in your puzzle as long as you’re working on it. He just wants your focus to be on Him and
His puzzle and not the one that the world offers… It’s so easy to get caught up in the world’s puzzle.. It’s pieces might be a little bigger, a lot easier and might offer a temporary sense of excitement. It’s a huge mistake to try and work both puzzles.. When this happens time is wasted, pieces get mixed together, and attention is distracted..
God’s puzzle is more rewarding.. It is filled with promises that He fulfills. It is filled with blessing that come from your struggles in life.. We are all at various stages in our puzzles but we all are working towards the same common goal which is to build a closer relationship with God.
Please untie the knots
that are in my mind,
my heart and my life.
Remove the have nots,
the can nots and the do nots
that I have in my mind.
Erase the will nots,
might nots that may find
a home in my heart.
Release me from the could nots,
would nots and
should nots that obstruct my life.
And most of all,
I ask that you remove from my mind,
my heart and my life all of the ‘am nots’
that I have allowed to hold me back,
especially the thought
that I am not good enough.

Live YOUR life like it’s your LAST 24!!
