Living Life in a Fish Bowl!

Gloria’s take on life.

Do you believe in God? Who do you say Jesus is?
If you answer yes I believe in God and Jesus is the Son of God who died for my sins – isn’t that enough? Can I do what I want – when I want – how I want?
 
Jesus tells us in Luke (9:23-24 ESV)
Then he said to the crowd, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must give up your own way, take up your cross daily, and follow me. 24 If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake, you will save it.”
 
The Bible has much to say about how we live. It matters. It isn’t just enough to believe there is a God. Even demons believe that. (James 2:19)
 
God wants so much more for us. He sent His Son to pay the price we couldn’t pay. God wants a relationship with us. He has made that possible through Jesus.
 
We are as close to God as we choose to be.
 
I encourage you to make time today to connect with God.
 
Spend time in His Word – asking Him to give you understanding as you read.
“I will meditate on Your precepts,
And contemplate Your ways.
I will delight myself in Your statutes;
I will not forget Your word.” Psalm 119:15-16 NKJV
 
Spend time in prayer —
“Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.” Phil 4:6 NLT
 
“Cultivate an awareness of the presence of God” Curtis Girod
 
starting my day with God makes a huge difference in how the rest of my day goes,
til next time,
