Spiritual Sundays

Are you feeling rejected? Alone? Wishing you look better than ________?[another person]... Broken heart? Hopeless? Weak?

The truth is....you are never alone...There is Someone Who's always there for us. All He wants is for you to acknowledge His offer of love and friendship. The word "surrender" has an ugly meaning from this world's vocabulary. It feels like a total loss to surrender to someone or something.

But in God's vocabulary, "surrender" is victory in Christ Jesus. He already paid the price for your sins, for your pains, for your brokenness.

There is a door in your heart. And if you are willing to accept His visit, all you need to do is open that gate and let Him in. And as you start a life living anew, may you open your heart to let the good things grow and let go of the bad things that do not have room in your Spirit-filled heart.

Search our hearts Lord and help us have a swinging gate in them. So that we can let go of the bad things and only let the good things come into them. May we refrain from judging others, as we see them, but instead, may we remember that we are all Your creations and that You love us all, no matter what our physical appearances are.

1 Samuel 16:7 -”But the Lord said to Samuel, ‘Do not look at his appearance or at the height of his stature, because I have rejected him; for God sees not as man sees, for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord look at the heart.”

May you all have a wonderful rest as we reflect on the Lord's love, not only on this day but every day in our lives. Thank you for visiting me and God bless.

  20. Great photo/analogy! Sometimes I do feel like the toppled house but I know it is not what is important. It's what's on the inside! Thanks for posting this.

  21. Rosel,
    It is so true that the word surrender has a negative connotation to it in our culture, leaning toward the complete loss of whatever it is you are defending. But in spiritual understanding surrender means complete gain of what you never knew was who you always were in the eyes of God. Believing that would make surrender easy to God. But the problem is we are not convinced of that truth. We still think we are going to lose when we surrender in any way.
    Great Spiritual Sunday post!
