BURNING QUESTIONS

1. Do you struggle with a sense of self-worth? How do you perceive this has affected the way you are able to ‘keep your head upright’? If not, do you know someone who suffers in this area?

Yes I have always struggled with a sense of self worth. I think this stems from childhood. However I have gotten better since finding the Lord. It doesnt really matter what people think of me as long as I am pleasing my Lord. Also when I muck up He forgives me – how blessed I am because of Him

2. What are you most afraid of? Does this fear affect the way you move through life? (Ex. Are you overprotective with children? Afraid to take risks?)

I am a bit of a worrier. Being safe is important to me. However, I have lived through some unsafe times and He has seen me through I am confident that if rough unsafe times should come He will see me through again. I do prefer not to take risks.

3. What is one of the most marvelous ways God has provided a need? I can’t wait to hear your stories on this one!

We were going through a rough time at the end of last year God reminded me to lean on Him. He taught me that whatever comes He will be there. He is a need that thankfully I have because of Him.

4. Steve Brown, a Moody Broadcasting Bible Teacher, is one of the first people I ever heard teach the concept that God was not mad at me. I grew up in a denomination that led me to believe He was in a continuous state of disappointment over my failures. How about you? Though in your heart you know God says He loves you, does Satan in your mind ever try to convince you otherwise?

Sometimes Satan does try but I tell Him where to go now. I know God is always there for me and that He loves me unconditionally.

5. How close are you to your own Promised Land? Not at all, 1/2 way, almost there? By this I mean the place of abundant living and effectiveness here on earth, not the ultimate fulfillment in Glory! Though I hope you are going to heaven, I don’t want it to be today! šŸ™‚

I think I am 1/2 way there. I believe God has put me where I am today and He will lead me on even further as the years go by.

    We must remember that our God is a Holy God and that He hates sin, that makes His forgiveness more precious. We aren’t able to improve ourselves but as in Psalm 18, With my God assisting me I over leap the wall, That is in the metric form but a great comfort to me that I must rely on Him for all and in my weakness His strength is made perfect.

    “It doesnt really matter what people think of me as long as I am pleasing my Lord. Also when I muck up He forgives me – how blessed I am because of Him.”

    Amen, Jen. Thanks for the eloquently put reminder. Nothing matters except what He thinks. I tend to lose focus of that. I’m a worrier, too. Let’s not be. Let’s be warriors, instead. šŸ™‚
