How To Get EVERYTHING You Want!!

-Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears and listens to and heeds My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will eat with him, and he [will eat] with Me.-

(Revelation 3:20)

 

Hey Neighbor,

My 5 year old son, Hubie has a habit of yelling at our 14 year old daughter, Allie…in total rebellion to her attempts to redirect him.

He Screams…

“Allie!!  I can have WHATEVER I WANT!!”

Wow!!

Listen to the cry of the flesh!!

I know You hear it too!!

…those ear-shattering screams…coming from within Your soul…Crying Out,

“Give me EVERYTHING I want!!”

Give Me chocolate…

Buy me shoes…

Satisfy my sexual cravings…etc, etc…

Give me Everything I want!!!

But Why So Loud??

Well, The Flesh is attempting to drown out the humble cries of the Holy Spirit…Who is gently attempting to redirect Us…and get Us back on the right track with God.

He reminds Us that overindulging in chocolate will only make Us fat…

And those shoes will make Our ‘dogs bark’…

And sex- outside of marriage – will make Us itch and burn!!

Lol!!

The Holy Spirit is right there…gently urging Us to set Our sights on something greater than that which this world can offer…on those things that give Us eternal fulfillment…and on Someone Who can fill Our hearts with all that we thought was missing…and more!!

See Neighbor…Your heart does not have a hole shaped like a Hershey’s bar…nor does it have a shoe-shaped hole…and no style of sex can penetrate this hole. Lol!!

Why??

Because this hole that We all have been foolishly trying to fill is a ‘Jesus-Shaped Hole.’…and only Jesus can come inside to fill it…Perfectly!!

Behold…Jesus is standing at the door of Your heart, knocking….

Welcome Him In and Give Him first place in your life..Let His Holy Spirit Lead, Guide, and Direct You into All Truth…and Teach You to set Your sights on an Eternal life with Jesus in Heaven…

Where Ultimately…

You Will Have EVERYTHING That You Want!!

-Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need-
(Matthew 6:33)

Jesus Is Our Burden-bearer!!

-Surely He has borne our griefs (sicknesses, weaknesses, and distresses) and carried our sorrows and pains [of punishment]…

Isaiah 53:4

Hey Neighbor,

Today I’m sharing a poem that I read on bible.org. It’s titled, ‘Two Boxes.’

It’s just a little Reminder to Smile and Give Glory to Our God for Sending Us A Savior –
In Jesus….He’s Our Burden-bearer!!

Enjoy!!

***********
I have in my hands two boxes
Which God gave me to hold
He said, “Put all your sorrows in the black,
And all your joys in the gold.”

I heeded His words, and in the two boxes
Both my joys and sorrows I stored
But though the gold became heavier each day
The black was as light as before.

With curiosity, I opened the black
I wanted to know why
And I saw, in the base of the box, a hole
Which my sorrows had fallen out by.

I showed the hole to God, and mused aloud,
“I wondered where my sorrows could be.”
He smiled a gentle smile at me.
“My child, they’re ALL here with me.”

I asked, “God, why give me the two boxes?
Why the gold, and the black with the hole?”
“My child, the gold is for you to count your blessings…the black is for you to let go.”

*********

Even when it seems like Satan has launched an all out, full-scale attack against You, Remember…God is For You!!…and Jesus is Your Heavy Load-Lifter, Your Mind-Regulator, He’s Your Rock…Lean on Him, Because He Cares For You!!

-Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you-

1Peter 5:7

Thanks For Stopping By, Neighbor!

Until Next a Time, Remember…

God Loves You and So Do I!!
