Stupid Decisions Since Genesis

Stupid Decisions Since Genesis

Deep thoughts—
Morning hair—
My cup of coffee and a toilet in the background…🤷🏻‍♀️

I’m gettin’ real here, Jesus family!

Why are all the Christians freaking out?

For reals? I genuinely do not understand why we are so shocked to find out the world is, well…worldly and making stupid decisions.🤔

Has anyone read their Bible?

Truth bomb: people have been making lots of stupid decisions since Genesis.

Look—this is not to downplay, overlook, and ignore the insane realities we are living in, the pain and devastation that many are experiencing, or the seriousness of what we are facing. I’m not blind and my head is not in the sand.

Although I do have days I would like to bury my head in the sand! 🙇🏻‍♀️

This is just an honest evaluation of our own hearts to consider as we navigate this season.

Our hope, our freedom, our peace, our joy, and our everlasting life is in Jesus…NOT IN THIS WORLD!

God’s promises are secure and followed by YES & AMEN!

Do we believe Him at His Word?

What have we been singing about about all these years?

“Our God is an awesome God– He reigns from
Heaven above with wisdom, power and love, our God is an awesome God…”

“Way Maker, miracle worker, promise keeper, light in the darkness…”

“This is how I fight my battles…”

“My hope is in you Lord, my strength is in You Lord…”

Was our faith built on our own comforts and only in what we can control? That is not faith at all.

Are you spending more time listening to the masses and feeding your hearts and minds on the matters of this world vs. the Kingdom of God?

Scripture after scripture reveals to us who God is, what we have in Jesus and where our hope is secure.

It’s time to STOP and look inward not outward, and ask ourselves some hard questions…do we really trust in our good and faithful God, or was our trust in broken worldly systems and the life WE tried to build?

Did we build our life on the ROCK or in the sand?

My heart is for us to get anchored in God in such a way that we cannot be shaken no matter what comes our way! ⚔️

Let’s refocus and took a good hard look at where our faith life is at and anchor ourselves in the only ONE who can save…JESUS!

If you’re finding your faith life shaken…it’s ok. It’s normal. But let’s not stay there! Let’s recognize where we’ve lost our focus and get back to that rock solid place so we can actually hear what God is saying, and what He wants us to do in such trying times. In order for us to know our direction and what God has for us, we have to make sure we are operating from a place of faith, not fear and it starts with peeling off some barriers in our own hearts that are blocking us from fully trusting God.

I’ve been stripped, broken down, humbled, poor, beaten, betrayed, and experienced seasons of extreme loneliness…BUT GOD!

When I literally felt as if I had nothing and was barely holding on…HE SHOWED UP!

He wants to show up in your life too! 🙌🏼🔥♥️
