"YOU ARE BETTER THAN THAT"
(THIS MAYBE LENGTHY, YET IT IS FOR YOUR BENEFIT) - HELP US HOLY GHOST?
Why are we so mean, angry, bitter, and miserable if we are proclaiming Jesus Christ as our Personal Savior?
Was that not who we were before we surrendered our life to Christ?
Did we not come to Him to make a change for betterment?
I often hear Saints say, "Well that's just me and I am going to say what's on my mind." This is after they have spoken harsh words or hurt someone's feelings. Or they may say, "This is me and I am not going to change." Something is wrong, y'all....
Should we not be speaking with our heart? Or better yet, shouldn't we think before we speak? Especially, to consider other people's feelings.
I don't know about you, I must tell you truth. I often pray begging God to please never let the old JoAnne rise up and come out. I did not like that side. Talking about a miserable wreck. I was truly a wretched undone. Listen to me, people are going to always try to push you back to the old you and if you cave in they will talk about you and say all matter of evil things about you. Please don't let it happen? Change shows us as a representative for Jesus. I prefer to be talked about as being loving and humble as oppose to being classified as a mean and cruel person proclaiming to be saved. Wouldn't you? Help us Holy Ghost?
I am striving everyday of my life to be like these Scripture below and I pray that you are too. Remember: Our children are watching every move we make.
Matthew 11:29 says, "Take my yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and YOU WILL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS."
1 Peter 2:23
Remember: When we requested change to better our lives we took on the Characteristics of Jesus Christ. We should be striving for perfection every day of our lives. Read: (Matthew 5:48)
In other words: Our Character may have changed but our Personality remains the same.
May God bless you and keep you in His Prefect Will.... I love you with all my heart, soul, mind, and strength. In Jesus name, we pray. Amen
