Inspired by the Holy Spirit
Written by: Teresa Criswell
So much has happened over the last 13 years of my life since I FINALLY said, "Yes to Jesus!"
All those moments being drawn to go deeper into the roots of GOD and HIS righteousness and wanting to know this GOD who in HIS love and redemption extended HIS mighty hand and said, "Let's do this...you may not believe in ME, like you want, and you may not believe in yourself, but I believe in you for I see what's about to bloom and the fragrance of MYSELF you will leave behind..."
That alone is a "doubt destroying" thought into a "faith exposing" life in wanting GOD more and more as HE beckons us to draw closer to WHO HE IS.
Did you know there was a time I was so far away that I truly thought life didn't matter?
Did you know that the very words you read were never even a thought in those moments of waywardness?
Did you know I was so deceived in my waywardness that I thought I was on my way to fulfillment?
- Do you truly know that no matter how far I went - it didn't change how close HE was? Like my middle sister would tell me so often, "Teesa, remember you can take a million steps away from GOD, but take one step back and HE's right there..."
- Do you truly know that I can't imagine my life without THE WAY and HIS name is JESUS?
- Do you truly know that fulfillment will never come except through The Fulfiller of Abundant Life Himself - the ONLY ONE who can COMPLETE US when others only have the ability to compliment...big difference wouldn't you say?
Today, be encouraged and lean into HIM by reading and hearing the WORD OF GOD...be aware of HIS SPIRIT that makes the WORD come alive and while you're at it...go visit my most recent YouTube channel, "Let's Talk TV Show" - it's just starting and so thank you for overlooking the "amateurity"...
Let God have the last word over your life and no one else...now that's a victorious and triumphant reminder of how to live!
