Honoring God with our Thoughts

Honoring God

*cracks knuckles* Here we go!

Thoughts. They can be anything from about the answers to the next math test or what Darth Vader would look if his outfit was hot pink. (I personally think it would add alot to the Star Wars movies. 

Some of us might be thinking, ‘What does God care about my thoughts?’, ‘Is what I think about really that important?’

Well, Let’s go see what the Good Book says!

It’s Not About Who We Are. It’s About Whose We Are

Not whoe w1

(that’s one long title. Anyways xD )

This world is good at making us feel like we’re not good enough. It’s also good at making us think we need something.

We need more friends. We need a significant other. We need the newest iPhone, etcetera.

The world also likes to tell us who we are.

The worlds tells us that we’re ugly, we’re worthless if only you had this and this and this then you would be worthy.

How God Used a Book to Speak

bookspeak

God speaks to us in many different ways. Most of the time it isn’t a big booming voice or writing in the sky. Instead in my experience, it’s a little nudge or a little gentle thought that I should do something. Or thorough songs; having a song on the radio play at the exact time I needed it.  But God can use anything to speak to use if we’re willing to listen.

Even a fictional book.

I Don’t Deserve It

idont

A little background before I begin this post, I was raised Mormon/ LDS until I was nine years old. For those who don’t know much about Mormonism, the basic of it is that they believe that the church Jesus set up became corrupted and Joseph Smith restored it. The new religion is not Christianity despite what they say. You have to work your way to heaven and then maybe you can make it. The whole religion is about being perfect.

Until this year, I never realized how much growing up Mormon affected me.

These are the years that everybody pushes you to choose, where are you going to college? What profession are you going to pick? What are you going to do with you life?

We know that God has a plan for our life. But what is it?

God knows! End of post! Have an awesome day and don’t mess up too bad. 😉

I know I just did a song post a couple day ago, but for some reason I felt like I should do this post. 🙂

We all have those times in our life when we’re at the end of our rope.

We feel like we failed.

Life isn’t going the way it’s suppose to be.

And at times it can feel like God’s not there.

So as an encouragement to those who are at that spot in there life or just a reminder of how much God loves you, here is a list of songs I hope will encourage you. (:

A New Year; Another Chance

A New Year

2017.

I find when I think over last year, what comes to mind first is everything I failed at.

I think about how the year could’ve better…. How I should’ve been better… How much I totally and utterly failed.

I forget all the good that happened this year. I still have a roof over my head. I still have a wonderful family. Jesus still loves me and you.

I could’ve done better but I can’t do anything that will change what I did in the past.

What I can do is choose to do better now. I will never get 2017 back. But we have 2018. A new year to grow even more into a person that’s more like Jesus.  A new year to trust and grow closer to Jesus.

So that’s my hope for 2018; To trust that Jesus has my life in his hands. And like it says in Romans;   

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:28)

What does a new year mean to you? What are some of your New Year’s resolutions?
