What does a man gain by all his tools under the sun? Ecclesiastes 1:3
I remember when i had all the emotions and behavior of the average man. Conceit, hate, arrogant, jealousy, totally indulged in self. For the longest time I felt like it was normal and for me it was. That’s what I was raised around. My dad was a lover of money and control. Oh yeah me too. If I did not feel like I was in control everyone else was wrong.
My point is that it’s ok to have these feelings and behaviors. When you get sick and tired of being sick and tired that’s when you want to change. That’s when a part of your mind says your done acting like this. Your done acting like a fool. Then I had to ask myself are you really done. And for the last 8 years I wasn’t. I still displayed behaviors such as drinking and addictions.
However through the Bible he taught me how to change my thinking. It’s hard to look at yourself and your character defects. Honestly it sucks! It’s hard to realize that you have these behaviors and actions that we do.
This is why the Bible is called living water. It’s the truth it’s life and it’s GOD.
As you get to the point of being sick and tired of being sick and tired that the only way to go. Instead of walking with your head down you move it so you walk with your head up. In time as GOD is showing you your character defects your rises just a little bit more.
Just like the sun Sets in the west and rises in the east you start to want to look up even more to see the beauty of it. When you do that. If your down and out the only way is up. Right?
That’s when the change starts to occur. You start being more grateful, more knowledgeable and aware of GODS presence. He’s there teaching you that no matter what people say or do under heaven. It’s meaningless because it all belongs to me.
Have faith my friends that whatever is going on in your life just look up.
He there. He’s calling you to learn more. Just like he did me.
Much love my friends,
