AINT NO PARTY LIKE A HOLY GHOST PARTY CAUSE A HOLY GHOST PARTY DON’T STOP!
God is bigger than the bible…
God is bigger than the bible, there is far more to Him than what is contained in that book. As i heard someone say recently, the bible opens up to us small gateways for us to get to know Him better. It reveals parts of His character, then through relationship we come to know the fullness of Him and what he is like. Let God blow your box of Him wide open and be amazed at his glory, power, love and holiness.
lov-eis-reason asked: Hey there! I read your post titled "God doesn't care..." and I totally agree. One time He straight up said to me: "Your doctrine isn't THAT great." hahaha I focusing SOO much on it at the time. Be blessed!
Aha, thanks :D God Bless :)
This is probably one of the hardest thing I have gone through in my life, so far…
My girlfriend split up with me yesterday… my emotions have gone completely haywire since then. We were together just under 5 months, though it may not seem like long, it was long for me, as it was the first relationship I had been in. It was some of the best months of my life, and now it is no more. She (Alannah) didn’t feel that it was in Gods plan for us to be together, which, I can accept, if it is from God, it is right and I feel that, that is something important to acknowledge… But, however much I am coming to terms with that, there is always this little place of doubt that it isn’t right.
Today it really, really hit me that she is no more my girlfriend and i am finding that really hard. I just want to text her, to tell her I love her, but, that has gone. I feel that it won’t properly affect me until she comes back in august, which will be one of the hardest challenges I face, looking at her face to face and knowing I no longer share my life with her. I really wanted this relationship to be my first and last… I had started thinking about the future and what I would do when we were still together in a year or so… I feel somewhat at peace with this whole situation, but at the same time, something does not sit right within me. This next few weeks will be a learning curve, hopefully a good one. Please pray for me.
God doesent care…
I don’t believe God cares about doctrine, any doctrine. I don’t believe that God cares about denomination, any denomination. I believe that all he cares about is the relationship he has with us. He didn’t have to send Jesus, but he did, out of love. He wants this to work as much as us, us who know who God is.
I think as a society of Christians today we are too divided, by too many things, that at the end of the day don’t actually matter. Things that don’t contribute to our salvation. Little mole hills people turn into mountains, just because they can and think everyone should agree with them.
Everybody has different ideas and such, but God is the only thing that matters. Cling to him, not your doctrine, not your denomination or anything else you think defines you or makes you right, correct, above others. Let God and his character define you. Look at the person of Jesus and meditate on his character. We are to be Christlike. Do things the way he did. Not what some theologian says to do, or else what’s the point. Jesus should be at the centre of it all and no-one else. We need to see (metorphorically) through Jesus eyes. Let him show you he right way. Jesus didn’t care about anything but his relationship with God. We are, I believe to do the same.
I could go on more. But I am starting to ramble.
I hope I have challenged you.
Something shifted in the atmosphere
In Leicester today, and it really affected my spirit. There were people in our town hall square singing worship songs. It was shortly after I started hearing that, that I got this overwhelming sense of anger. But this wasn’t an anger at anything imparticupar, maybe it was at something I just can’t describe. But I have a feeling that we have just entered into a period of big spiritual warfare. That, I’m just not sure but, something happened. Love has already won, but there are still battles to fight and this, I feel is one of them. I’m not sure what it is over though. I think it may just be the fact that people are standing up for God publicly and declaring his love. It has angered the enemy. But I have no soubt rhat the church will come out of this stronger than before.
We only preach rules and behavior modification when we don’t trust God to change and transform hearts.
Micro managing behavior only works until people are exasperated and they quit all together.
Proclaim the transforming power of a new creation in the grace of God and watch people transform and become Christlike before your eyes without ever having to police their lives.
So much easier! Alex Perez
