Hold On: Help Is On The Way! ~ Part 2

Hello all:

Last week I talked of needing God to help me get through life.  He did. He helped me to see my need to trust Him more. I often talk of trusting God, yet when the situation gets rough, I waver. I start thinking, “Where is God? Doesn’t He see what happening to me? I know He loves me, so why is He allowing me to suffer?”  And when the situation gets REALLY rough tears and more anxiety follow.

God is showing me, all the more, that these questions are stemming from my soul, the seat of my emotions.  God is also showing me that my soul is not to dominate my existence. God wants my spirit  (spirit man) to be stronger than my soul.

Plus,  I must, I must learn to have godly waiting habits.  I can not pout,  complain, worry, fret, or practice envy while waiting for my circumstances to change. None of these habits bring Him any honor. I want what God wants. So, to the praying saints, please pray and agree with me that I have crossed the line into spiritual maturity.  May surviving these last days be the signal that I have and will for the remainder of my days wholly walk after the Spirit and not the flesh.

Feeling like I’ve progressed in my Christian walk brought back pieces of a song entitled, Brand New Life to my mind.

I moved from my old house
I moved from my old friends
I moved from my old way of strife
Thank God I moved out to a brand new life
He changed my old way with words
He changed my old leveled mind
He changed my heart and gave me a new start
Thank God I moved out to a brand new life

(Note: This song is usually sung in terms of going from a non-believer to a born-again Christian.  Today I am getting joy in it because I feel like I’ve just gotten an upgrade. (You know how you feel when you move from the small house to the bigger house with amenities. 🙂

The full words to the song Brand New Life can be found at http://www.music-lyrics-gospel.com/gospel_music_lyrics/brand_new_life_16034.asp
I Peter 4:2 “That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God.”
