Don't be Offended, He just wants to give you a life worthwhile!

We get so wrapped in not doing wrong, trying to get points for good deeds.

That's where I went wrong in my faith...that is what tore me from Gods graces. 

Our life is about trusting God and building an amazing relationship with him. So he will shine through our lives. It is hard to think about it that way, mind boggling.

Earnestly Seek Him!
Hebrews 11:6
6 And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him. 

We want so much physical proof, that was the hardest part for me, we can't just follow Jesus because of his miracles...we are sensation seekers, we get our fill and are distracted by it. Rather  then seeking spiritual truth. We want to show the world our good deeds, and how we memorize scripture, or proclaim and praise ourselves for mission trips or and such, there is nothing wrong with being/doing good, but some people get a high for getting praised for good deeds, when we should be giving all the glory to God and seeking his applause and rewards.

Follow in our Fathers foot steps!

He is wisdom, foundation, understanding and knowledge!

He wants to enlighten us, guide us, befriend us, not put on a show for us. 

We reap what we sow! Don't try to skimp on by. When we don't work for things we become weak, we don't get the full benefit of feeling good about what we have accomplished. 

Being a follower of Christ is a work in progress, but we are storing up so much more for ourselves when we work on creating that personal relationship with God and glorify Him not ourselves. 

So don't be offended, this life is temporary, we are storing up for the eternal. 

We need to give ourselves fully with out begging for something in return. He knows what we need!

It is about creating a personal relationship, you don't need to use be showy words with God (pagans were schooled and knew big words and were very showy trying to get attention for their  intelligence) be like a child, and keep it simple and sweet, humble yourself. A child seeks the simple love and adoration from their parents a hug and kiss, Look for that from your Heavenly Father, sit in his lap, let your little legs dangle and just talk and pray. We make it out to be a chore and such a complex thing, when all we need to do is talk to him.

Don't be offended,
He just wants to give you a life worthwhile!
