Me Vs. The World

. I have to admit I have let myself slide. The past couple of weeks I haven't been focused on God like I should. I let myself get caught up in the drama of wickedness by other people. Sometimes I let people's words and actions take control of how I feel and what I do. I get angry and depressed because I feel like I am not good enough. I realize I am a child of God. He is there to protect me. I may not be good enough in others eyes but in the eye of God I am good enough. As long as I set an example and follow his words I will always be good enough. I cannot fix everything and make it a better but I can do my best to be the woman God wants me to be and live the way He wants me to live. There will always be wickedness but as a Christian I need to put my spiritual armor on and know God is my protection. In the end, I will stand strong. Only thing that separates me and the evil of the world is the cross. I would rather be on the side of Jesus Christ than to have to answer to the wrong doings of this world. The past 2 days I have spent a lot of time with God and asked that He forgive me for going astray and protect me and guide me. No matter what God is always there to protect me. Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven ~Matthew 5:16. No matter who trespasses against me Dear Lord, I will not fall for you give me strength and courage! Amen!
Psalm 27
1 The LORD is my light and my salvation;
Whom shall I fear?
The LORD is the defense of my life;
Whom shall I dread?
2 When evildoers came upon me to devour my flesh,
My adversaries and my enemies, they stumbled and fell.
3 Though a host encamp against me,
My heart will not fear;
Though war arise against me,
In spite of this I shall be confident.
4 One thing I have asked from the LORD, that I shall seek:
That I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life,
To behold the beauty of the LORD
And to meditate in His temple.
5 For in the day of trouble He will conceal me in His tabernacle;
In the secret place of His tent He will hide me;
He will lift me up on a rock.
6 And now my head will be lifted up above my enemies around me,
And I will offer in His tent sacrifices with shouts of joy;
I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the LORD.
7 Hear, O LORD, when I cry with my voice,
And be gracious to me and answer me.
8 When You said, “Seek My face,” my heart said to You,
“Your face, O LORD, I shall seek.”
9 Do not hide Your face from me,
Do not turn Your servant away in anger;
You have been my help;
Do not abandon me nor forsake me,
O God of my salvation!
10 For my father and my mother have forsaken me,
But the LORD will take me up.
11 Teach me Your way, O LORD,
And lead me in a level path
Because of my foes.
12 Do not deliver me over to the desire of my adversaries,
For false witnesses have risen against me,
And such as breathe out violence.
13 I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the LORD
In the land of the living.
14 Wait for the LORD;
Be strong and let your heart take courage;
Yes, wait for the LORD.

How easy it is to let ourselves slide! We always suffer when we don't take time for God. Thank you for letting the light of the Lord shine through you in your post after spending time with God, Jennifer!
