Why do we forget the basics? Wait, I guess I will just speak for myself. Since I have been far from home in this life we have felt called into, somedays I have felt spiritually dried up, like I have lost my way. I have questioned the Lord, thinking that He must have made some sort of mistake with me. The ways of the flesh are so detrimental to our relationship with Christ. The fact of the matter is this...the Lord doesn't make mistakes. This is a photo of my bible from this morning. In my pursuit to choose joy daily, I started the Beth Moore online bible study "Believing God". For anyone who has not been in one of her studies, I highly recommend it. It was wonderful to have her lead me through Gods word. She has a true love for women and bringing them to scripture. She gave her viewers what she named the Five Statement Pledge of Faith. These are five things to remember and believe as you go throughout your day. I thought I would share these with you because each one touched me today.
1. God is who He says He is.
2. God can do whatever He says He can do.
3. I am who God says I am.
4. I can do all things through Christ.
5. Gods word is alive and active in me.
Do any of these speak to you? I would love to hear what you think.
