- Matthew 6: 10, 31-33
- James 4: 13-15
- 1 Corinthians 12:7
- Micah 6:8
and from these we gathered that we should live here on earth with a grateful, thankful heart and one that praises God for all the wonderful blessings; that although we make plans for the future, live knowing that today may be our last day; that we all have the Holy Spirit as a guide for the boundaries of a life pleasing to God and that these boundaries will actually benefit all of us; and that God loves it when we treat all people fairly, love others faithfully and be humble.
But the thing that completely blew me away, was the realisation that His ultimate goal for each one of us, is to have a relationship with Him that is completely unhindered by stuff. He just wants to be close to us!!!!!Everything that He has done, and all the things that we go through in life, he uses to get closer to us. Mind boggling. OK, so there are people out there who have already grasped this fact, and although I have heard it before, it became real for me yesterday in a way it hasn't before. And I am awed!.....
