everyday i am constantly reminded of how much i need to depend on the Lord for my strength, patience, the ability to love, and countless other things. lately i have often been convicted of not giving him my full attention. don't ask me what has been distracting me, because honestly i'm not sure. one thing i do know is that i want more then anything else to be persistent in pursuing him. even more importantly, i want to constantly remember and know that he is still pursuing me.
i'm reminded everyday that i must continue to put my trust in the Lord. it is much more then a one time commitment. it is a daily decision and prayer. i've asked the Lord to let me be more conscious of his presence in my everyday life, and boy, when i am focusing on his presence, it makes decisions of my words, actions, and even what i do in private much easier. i've been studying more about what the light of God really means. he is the ultimate light of the world that casts out darkness, we are just privileged to be able to walk in his light and spread it to all the world. we were designed to enjoy this light, Christ Jesus, above all else. he only can fulfill the deepest desires of our heart.
he only can cast away every fear and anxiety in our lives. he only can lift his people out of the darkness of the world. dependence in our world is often seen as a sign of immaturity. fully depending on God is the single most mature and wise decision(s) we will/can ever make in our lives.
