Some days you hear something you’ve heard many times in your life, but it hits you a different way. It’s as if what I’ve overlooked is being brightened by a spotlight and it’s all I see.
Tonight, this happened to me.
Last year, I had started the Biblical Thoughts category because I felt called to blog about the Bible and what I was learning. I’ve felt recently like this is what I’m missing. I’m in the Bible regularly but not how I want to be. I want to be actively learning and sharing what I’m reading and learning about my God and His son, Jesus.
Tonight, I had my eyes open to a passage that had much more depth and meaning than I realized before. I feel like it makes me ask questions about myself and what I’m doing to further God’s kingdom and bring Him glory. When I put so much pressure on myself, is that what I’m supposed to do? When God knows my heart, He already knows I’m not perfect because I came from sin and I have overcome, why then would I pressure myself to a perfection I can’t reach alone?
Anyway, I’m currently working on a few more blog posts which I hope spiral into more. These will be brief (maybe) about some passages and topics I found interesting and personally convicting. Stay tuned.
