Living Life in a Fish Bowl!

Gloria’s take on life.


Compromise can be a great tool for conflict resolutions. However, when compromise seeps into a Christians life, pulling them away from God – then it is no longer a great tool but a stumbling block.
“You are as close to Me as you want to be.”
When God dropped that thought into my heart, it challenged me and caused me to look at my choices, my priorities, my passion, my life…..
Today I found myself singing an old Hosanna song. It is my heart’s cry.
“Lord, I want to be more like You.
I want to be a vessel You work through.
I want to be more like You.”
Instead of wondering how close I can be to the world and still be a follower of Jesus, I should be asking myself – how close can I be to Jesus and still be walking on this earth. (Enoch Gen 5:24)
Something to think about.
I want to be more like You, Jesus!

what, why, outcome??

How’s your prayer life?

What is prayer?     Communicating with God – the One who rules the universe and all the galaxies beyond, who is all-powerful, all-knowing, and present everywhere

Asking Him to intervene on a particular situation or person

Asking for His peace, joy, love, hope and strength to be poured out and for eyes to be opened to Him

Why pray? because He cares about us. He is for us! He wants a relationship with us. He loves us. (Psalm 119:18, Isaiah 40:29, Jude 2, Psalm 42:5, 1 Peter 5:7, Psalm 118:6, John 3:16)

Outcome?  Prayer changes things. Prayer makes a difference. The greatest change is in me. It draws me closer to God. Therefore, my corner of the world is better because of Jesus.

Don’t forget a part of prayer is listening. It is in listening that I find God pouring peace into my heart. We may never hear the audible voice of God but He still speaks to us: thru His word, thru music, preaching, thru others, thru a sense of assurance, God even used a Dove Chocolate wrapper to speak to my heart.

I encourage you to spend some time in prayer/communication with the One who loves you most.
