And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for[a] you serve the Lord Christ. – Colossians 3:23-24
I can’t be 100% sure, but I think God is trying to talk to me. As I was reading my bible this morning, the above verse really stood out to me. I am taking it as a message and a sign that God is talking to me, even though I am not 100% sure. I think I need to dedicate every single thing I do, no matter how menial or insignificant I think it might be, to God. I think I am going to try it with things like washing dishes, cooking meals and cleaning my house ect. I desire to surrender ALL of my life to God, but whether I can actually do it remains to be seen.
I need to totally surrender everything to God. Ask Him for help when I need it, ask Him for wisdom when I am confused, ask Him for faith when I doubt, ask Him for courage when I am afraid, ask Him for forgiveness when I sin, just totally take my eyes off this world and keep them 100% focused on His presence.
Things have gone to my doubting and thinking that I am talking to thin air, to sometimes doubting and sometimes feeling and sensing He is right there with me. That’s progress to me. I think the entire key to practicing His presence is keeping the lines of communication to Him open. To constantly, talk, talk, talk to Him. Not using fancy words, or set prayers, but to simply talk to Him as I would a friend.
Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know. – Jeremiah 33:3
