"I am Willing"

Almost 3 months ago to the day I prayed a prayer of humility, asking God to humble me and do whatever he needed to do to get me where I needed to be. Several minutes after that prayer my laptop spontaneously crashed for seemingly no apparent reason, right before the beginning of Fall Semester.

I showed it to anyone and everyone who was tech savvy enough to diagnose it, but it was a mystery crash; even the geek squad couldn’t analyze it saying, “yeahhhhh…we’ve never seen anything like this before.”

…That’s when you know it’s bad haha!

Anyway, I went these last few months without it and got by just fine. In fact, it’s been almost refreshing not to have it around. I learned much about necessity and how to become a lot more reliant on God. However, these past couple weeks have been crucial as the semester is dwindling to a close and final projects and papers are being issued.

Less than an hour ago I sat on my bed, laptop before me, completely humbled before Him and said, “God I could really use this right now. If you are willing you will fix it and provide this for me…”

Minutes later my laptop rebooted and logged on, completely unaffected by anything. Even all the tabs I had up when the system crashed were restored back to their natural state when I opened my web browser, as if nothing had ever happened at all.

"…A man with leprosy came to him and begged him on his knees, ‘If you are willing, you can make me clean.’ Filled with compassion, Jesus reached down and touched the man. ‘I am willing,’ he said. ‘Be clean!’ Immediately the leprosy left him and he was cured.” Mark 1:40-42

God is willing when we are humbled. It’s amazing what praying by the scriptures can do for our lives, even the little stuff…God cares about it all. The key is that we must be willing to sacrifice whatever it takes, and let God take it. I am learning this every day.

Thank you Lord for being a God who is ever teaching and always providing :-)  

On that note…it’s good to be back!! 

Completely amazed by the power of the Holy Spirit…praise God!!!

There is no one else for me;
None but Jesus.
Crucified to set me free;
Now I live to bring Him praise.

Spirit filled souls are ablaze for God. They love with a love that glows. They serve with a faith that kindles. They serve with a devotion that consumes. They hate sin with fierceness that burns. They rejoice with a joy that radiates. Love is perfected in the fire of God.

This heart and flesh may fail, but my God you never will.

The Spirit of God has made me, and the breath of the Almighty gives me life.

Job 33:4

It is within God’s wings that we can find rest: Jesus’ love, hope, peace, comfort… everything we need. If you just go to Him He’s there waiting for you.

#Christian  #God  #Jesus  #Faith  #Rest  

God knows every detail of our lives, and when we step out in faith to follow him he will show us that our greatest security is not found in the comforts we can manufacture in this world but in the faithful provision of the only One who knows our needs and the only one who is able to meet our needs in every way! So step out in faith and go to the hard places in the world; live like a Christian, dead to self and alive to God! Don’t let the American culture or the American “church” culture define Christianity for you; let the Bible do that and then give your life to follow that! The Bible I mean… follow that!!!
