the war is already won

This past week I have been.. drained. Physically and emotionally and in effect spiritually. Spending only a few intentional moments with the Lord each day left me in a place where I felt like I to "make up time with Him". Then I thought of the absurdity of that. The Lord knows we are going to mess up. He knows we are going to get caught up in this world. So we don't have to earn His forgiveness. The price has already been paid. And we praise You, Jesus for being the perfect sacrifice. We think of our relationship with Him in this roller coaster cycle. We have ups, we have downs. Well the Lord doesn't see it that way. We may have 'downs' but we don't have to work our way back up for the highs. The Lord amazingly, instantly forgives us when we ask Him, and we are made pure and given a 'redo' in His sight. So right now, when I'm experiencing this low and several attacks from the enemy, I cling to this verse and remember that the war is already won!! "But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light." 1 Peter 2:9

Yours Forever

Sheesh time flies. Seriously, January came and went too quickly! But it was oh so good! Our church gave three weeks in January to the Lord, fasting and praying. And I guess it should of been the slowest weeks of  my life. But now that it's over I can't wait until next year's three weeks. I grew to love waking up at 5:30 to go to a 6AM prayer meeting. Seeking the Lord for an hour every morning. Blessings, blessings. The Lord opened my eyes a lot during the past three weeks, and even though the fast is over.. our relationship is still growing. You see, it's great to have a designated time to fast. To give things up for God. To set aside one hour of your morning to seek him in passionate prayer. But who says we can't do that everyday? I say we can. I say I will. SO often I find myself waking up, rushing to get ready, and sprinting to class. But lately I've found myself giving my first moments to the Lord in prayer and reading His word. Because each morning when I wake up, I wake up because of Him. I go through each day of my life because I love Him. And because I want to serve Him. I am alive because He gave me life and He lives in me. So, even though the fast is over. My relationship with Christ is never over. I'm not on a break now. I'm seeking Him more now than ever. This semester is about to get crazy hectic. My schedule is full of Jesus and I couldn't be more excited. I'm so imperfect but Jesus you are perfect. You are holy. Lord, you have my attention. My life is in your hands. Move in me like never before. My future is yours. 2011 is Yours. I am Yours. Forever.
