I Can See Clearly Now...

"Those who live according to the sinful nature have their minds set on what that nature desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires." Romans 8:5

All week I have been asking this question, "Lord, what should I do in this situation??" I have been wrestling with God over a choice I have to make. Have I known what was right? Yes, I think I have, but I fooled myself into believing that the right decision wasn't REALLY the right decision. I just wanted to take the easy way out! I didn't want things to be difficult or painful. I didn't want to face my insecurities and jealousies, I wanted to run away and pretend that facing those things was in fact the wrong decision!

Have I lost you?

For the last week I have been wrestling with insecurities, fears, lies from you know where, and temptations. I have stopped to pray and ask God for help, but never took time to ask what He wanted me to do. I was too busy telling Him what I DID NOT want to do!

This morning, things became clear. I stepped outside of myself and truly asked God what HE would have me do. The answer? It was what I feared most, but when He spoke to me, I knew it was right!

You see, if I live by Romans 8:5, and my mind is set on the things He desires, I will have peace. Will life always be easy? No way, but I will always have an assurance that I am living for a greater purpose, for eternity. The moment I start living for my sinful desires and for myself, everything I do will be for nothing.

All of this came clear this morning as I ran outside. God was finally able to break through my hard head and speak to me what He has been saying all along!

What things do you do to clear your head and refocus your priorities?

Take time this week to focus on Him and what He would have you do!

Thanks for the encouragement Heather. I have been struggling with some decisions myself the last few weeks. Even thought I know what I need to do. Its nice knowing that other people are going through the same things!
