What Jesus desires in us is someone who loves Him enough to obey Him....
If we say we love Him but do not want to live according to His Word, we deceive ourselves! No-one
does this perfectly, but it should be our driving force.
ex. If I tell my children I love them, but I do not spend time with them or SHOW them love in my actions, they will not believe I love them.
who do you think you're fooling when you live only for yourself? When you don't wait for God to work in your life and instead choose to satisfy a "flesh" desire?
When the only person you care to please is yourself?
I prefer to be an encourager , but we also need to be HONEST WITH OURSELVES!
The commandment Jesus wants us to follow above all is....
"Love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind and soul"

Ecclesiastes 3:5-8, 11-12, 14 KJV
I really thought as we got older pressures would lighten up.
They haven't! Maybe, it's because as we grow older we recognize the urgency of loving others and sharing truths.
Maybe, it's because Satan is applying more pressure on the believer in these last days.....
Either way the result is STRESS!
More than ever we feel the need to lean on Jesus....
Trust in Jesus....
No time for pride or petty problems. No time to quarrel. No time to fear or loose sight of what is eternal.
Time to come together in prayer and faith as worshippers of the One True God.
What an amazing Heavenly Father we have! One who is gracious and merciful worthy of our adoration and praise.
Oh God, we love you with all that we are. Please help us not to faint when hard times come. Help us Jesus to lift your name above all the noise and rioting and divide!!!!!
We know You alone are our peace and not any human can take your place.
Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart: So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man. Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
Peace be still!
