God’s favor upon my life. an abundant life is not about things going our way and thank the good Lord for that. when we understand & abide in His provisions, we are most blessed.
i’ve noticed a reoccurring theme in our generation. where family, children, marriage, commitment & selflessness are being pushed further and further out of the picture. the more i dive into the word & see the Fathers heart, the more it breaks mine. what seems like a harmless half kidding - half serious mindset- where pets are replacing babies, where uplifting and almost idolizing dogs above a position that God has actually called us to; creating a world where children become irrelevant. when a career, traveling & “living your life” become more important than “settling down”, being marriage minded, maturing & trusting in God’s promises; (that what He says is true.) its a sad & detrimental world to live in.
i know this isn’t a popular post, but that’s kind of the point. it’s not about whats wanted to be heard, but what’s needed to be said. i’m not preaching for the sake of “likes” & frankly, neither did Jesus.
people often get it confused. that’s what we do when we try to take life on in our own strength. If you want to go against the status quo, if you don’t want to be a conformist to society- let me tell you, having a godly loving marriage that seeks oneness in a world that promotes selfishness, having faith in GOD in a world that puts faith in money, being FRUITFUL and multiplying in a world that tries to brainwash us into thinking children are annoying & inconvenient, & creating a life that leads to a legacy of truth, love & righteousness is the most groundbreaking, freeing, purposeful STAND you can take.
i’m not speaking to the majority of the population here. i’m speaking to God’s children. and as His children we are called to be a peculiar people. ive been asking myself this a lot lately. am i peculiar or do i just blend in? it calls for a heart evaluation for sure.
dont get me wrong, there are many things in life that are good, but they were never meant to be placed above God’s call for our lives. fleeting happiness will never surpass everlasting joy. not even close, friends
