I was looking this morning at some of my past posts, because I have been writing the last few days on some of my spiritual growth. I post allot of videos, and one that I actually was thinking about a few times this week was “Everything” by Lifehouse. I know many have seen this, but when I watch it, I see so much of myself in it. How many times have I turned away, and been lured away by the things of this world? Too many times. God has truly restored me and brought me up several levels in my spiritual growth. I love the end of this video where Jesus has restored this girl too, and they are dancing so sweetly. I too now, can dance with my beloved Jesus. He’s all I need, He’s all I want. I love His Word, I love His presence, I love spending time with Him in prayer, in worship, in every area, even the hard stuff now becomes a surrender of willingness and love b/c I know He only has my best in mind. I started Journaling this past week, and the first page I titled was scriptures headed “Being Set Apart”. I know God has set us all apart for different reason to bring Glory to His name. The first 3 scriptures that I wrote I think are sooo appropriate for this video as well:
Ezekiel 20:34 (New Living Translation)
34 And in anger I will reach out with my strong hand and powerful arm, and I will bring you back[a] from the lands where you are scattered.
2 Corinthians 6:17 (New Living Translation)
and separate yourselves from them, says the Lord.
Don’t touch their filthy things,
and I will welcome you.[a]
Isaiah 52:11 (New Living Translation)
11 Get out! Get out and leave your captivity,
where everything you touch is unclean.
Get out of there and purify yourselves,
you who carry home the sacred objects of the Lord.
Let’s remeber that we truly are set apart; let us rid ourselves of worldly things and live humble lives before our king and make Him proud of us. THANK YOU JESUS FOR ALWAYS BEING MY EVERYTHING!
