The Bottom Line in The Christian Life

I have not published a blog in days until yesterday. I needed some time to work on other projects. However, my spirit was not in synch with some of them. After an honest reality check, the conclusion was that some of my projects were not approved by the Lord even though they were not sinful.

What is the purpose for our life and are we fulfilling it in the Lord? Is the purpose of our life being to acquire possessions, success, accolades or status? Are we allowing secular achievements to supersede our spiritual achievements? We must not get it twisted thinking claps from the crowd equates to God’s approval. (Matthew 16:25-26)

After thoroughly evaluating and honestly answering questions about some of my projects, I put them on hold. Why do I want to complete them? How would they bring glory to God, or spiritually benefit others? Why would I limit my passion from God approved spiritual blogging for something else? Why was I frustrated, and felt time was wasted working on some of my projects?

FINAL THOUGHTS

After the final conclusion was in synch with my spirit, I shared my decision with my minister, my brother-in-Christ who is also my husband. Our conversation assured me that my self-evaluation was on point with the conclusion being for selfish ambitions.

SISTER COPELAND’S DEVOTION (Friday, July 8, 2022)

“Father, I give You every bit of my life, my past, my present and my future. Thank You for taking every experience and turning it round for my good. I know that with You, nothing is ever wasted in Jesus’s name! Amen.”

Are we walking in the purpose we were created to do? What is your Why?

  2. Amen and Amen. So sister Tangie. Falling and rising at the feet of Christ is a safe thing However, I would like to share abit of how I stay grounded. TELL GOD ABOUT EVERYTHING. and LISTEN TO HIS VOICE attentively. When he makes you fatigued of pursuing other projects you don’t even need to think twice. DROP IT. And if he makes a project nourishing to your heart and spirit, DO DO IT. God’s voice is evident in our heart and peace in our spirit✌️God bless you sis 💕💕

  3. I think you’re definitely on the right track. There is something in the bible that talks about discerning the will of God in our lives. It says that “through the trying and testing, we are able to discern what is the perfect will of God.” So i know that you might not know exactly what to do sometimes or might not know what is the will of God, but we have to try and test to see what is the perfect will of God. Amen sister, May God bless you!

    1. Thank you for your comments. “1 Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 2 This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, 3 but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world.” — 1 John 4:1-3 (NIV). I used the same verses in a published blog this evening. I appreciate your comments and have a great day/night and remain safe.

  4. Obedience to God comes out of the relationship with God, we have, the more we know him, the more we will obey him… It is not enough to know about God. We need to know him personally…. It is like knowing a lot about your future wife, before you marry her… but to know her personally in a dating relationship, is all together a different story…
