There was a season in my life where it seemed like every issue I thought I had overcome came circling back. It began with a thought, a memory or a fear. When I am reminded of the hurt I went though or job issue, I dwell in that feeling for a bit till I find myself asking God “why, why again”.
Before I begin a post I would usually write down the title then build on it. But in this case I was in my mind for a bit thinking about my dad and my mom and what I would do or how I would feel if I lose them. I know right a weird thing to think about.

“But why do you call Me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do the things which I say?

But he who heard and did nothing is like a man who built a house on the earth without a foundation, against which the stream beat vehemently; and immediately it fell. And the ruin of that house was great.” Luke 6:46-49 NKJV

I never use to ask God for forgiveness unless I know for sure I won’t do it again. This I must say was a way for the enemy to keep me bound to sin. If I didn’t give it to God then the crack in my life was exposed for invasion by the enemy.
Ever often I hear the scripture, “Delight yourself also in the LORD, And He shall give you the desires of your heart”. While soaking it in, i had one question, “Lord how can I delight in you”?
Oftentimes we get to know our family members or we are all in the same place and country when someone dies. Death has a way of bringing us close, even closer than a wedding. For the past week I have witnessed my family come together as never before. We have made time for play, for the occasional conversation wars, where we freely express our business plans, opinions about politics, discuss biblical principles and can’t forget the food!

Today I asked God for favor, something that I have as a Son. In the midst of favor, my faith in the promise was tested. I had to endure some discomfort as God was showing me that he got this! Continue reading Discomfort in the midst of favor
