Life Experiences Words of Godliness


I’ve had days where it seemed I was spiritually numb.Nothing just made sense.The verses I had read before with much revelation became though as ordinary letters.There was no challenge,I was basically apathetic

Prayer seemed a big deal and with much effort.I’d rather want to think through stuffs than mention to God in prayer.Everything spiritual just seemed cooked up and just living the normal life without a “God” system was beginning to be of relief and a new way to go.

Why does it have to be complicated?why isn’t it simple?I mean without the here and there doctrines and principles,I mean why can’t living right just be universal without the different standards in discretion?

My head had been stressed,stressed with denominational doctrines,stressed with God’s sovereignty as to why bad things happen to good people,different questions unanswered in my mind and my decluttering resort was fast running to “A no God system”.

I wouldn’t know if you have felt this way or feeling this way as you read which I believe by mercy is a pathway to being reassured.

At such times,all I’m by  mercy strengthened to  mutter is ” God help my heart”.That my heart is watered with peace about the right course.That I’m granted confidence again to kick off in the race.

This actually might be needed from time to time,so we are sure we ain’t just dogmatic about the path we’ve chosen.So we can boldly hear ” this is the way;walk thou in it “,so our heart with full assurance is strenghtened and energized to run again hence why there will always be a need to retreat to refire.

This verse from the hymn come thou fount of every blessing resonates loudly.

Oh to grace how great a debtor

Daily I’m constrained to be

Let that goodness like a fetter

Bind my wandering heart to thee

Prone to wander,Lord ,I feel it

Prone to leave the God I love

Here’s my heart oh take and seal it

Seal it for thy courts above.

And I get to pour out how worn out and tired I’m unrestrained,without mincing words

And  then  by mercy and by Grace,my cluttered vision becomes clear and bright,the cross once again comes alive,consecration carries weight again,Godliness and not wordliness is stamped in my heart again,the need to reach out is commissioned again and it seems I’m made new all together..Then this hymn resonates loudly with assurance.

I’ve decided to follow Jesus

I’ve decided to follow Jesus

I’ve decided to follow Jesus

No turning back,no turning back

Though no one joins me,still I will follow

No turning back,No turning back…..

And by Grace have I been kept and I’m assured he’d preserve until His coming as this verse strengthens me to live daily.

Jude 1:24
[24]Now to Him Who is able to keep you without stumbling or slipping or falling, and to present [you] unblemished (blameless and faultless) before the presence of His glory in triumphant joy and exultation [with unspeakable, ecstatic delight]–.
