Good Monday Morning Coffee conversation every😊ne! I welcome you to another beautiful day, a new week, and another encouraging conversation. First would I like to apologize for last Monday’s no show conversation. Life has changed. I finally have a job but unfortunately my hours are not idea. So despite that, here we are! So grab that drink☕ and let’s start the conversation!
Me and Work!
So for today’s conversation I would like to discuss the importance of not allowing your mistakes to keep you from coming to God. As I mentioned I have started working again but before this I have not been working since July 2019. So you can just imagine that this will be something that I will have to get use to again. Now I have to get use to dealing with many different personalities, varies mindsets, and of course the good, the bad, and the ugly attitudes. I only started working the beginning of this month and I already have been faced with improper training, inconsistent hours, and finally not being able to take a break. So after being pushed and pushed and pushed I finally got upset and told the manager that he needs to be a manager (basically) and also I got loud and said he was acting like an idiot. Now of course I felt bad about it and knew that this was not a good look as a Christian. I already was telling people Jesus loved them and now here I am telling someone they are acting like an idiot. After this incident I could have allowed myself to become depressed but instead I continued confiding in Jesus and trusting in Him who is the one is perfecting me.
Allows go to God!
So today I want to encourage anyone who may have fallen short. Maybe you said something or did something that has caused you to feel like God is upset and disappointed with you but He is not. One thing I learned during my time of not working was that my faith is not in me but in Jesus who is mighty save. The best thing I can do is to continue to rely on Jesus. Seek Him everyday and ask for Him to change me so I can reflect Him more and more each day. Now this does not mean that when I sin or react like I mention before that I am okay with that behavior but these moments show me that I truly need Jesus. These moments show me that everyday I need to be in my prayer closet and gleaning from Him. We can not afford to allow our time with our Lord to be push back because the flesh is always at war with the Spirit (Gal. 5:17).
So inconclusion, this is just a simple exhortation to remind you or inform that God wants you to always come to Him. In Him is our deliverance and freedom but apart from Him is darkness. 1 Tim. 1:7 says, “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. In 1 John 4:18 says, There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He the feareth is not made perfect in love. In 1 John 4:8 says, He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. And in 1 Peter 4:8 says, Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. So I share all these scriptures to express that God who is Love, loves you and if you have sinned He will cleanse you from that sin. Whenever we become fearful to come before God it is the enemy wanting to keep you separated from God because like 1 John 4:18, God does not give us the spirit of fear. It is important to discern the Spirit because many are in bondage due to fear and until many take God’s word seriously, many will stay bond by past memories of mistakes when Jesus has already died for that sin. So move on, come to Jesus, and recieve His forgiveness. So remember, take it one day at a time and stay encouraged in the Lord.
