4He hath made his wonderful works to be remembered: the LORD is gracious and full of compassion.
Psalm 111 (KJV)
If we are created by God, we are wonderful works. Not just we of one accord in Jesus, but all mankind. The prerogative of love should not just be a commandment, but a natural expression of our godly selves when we commit to Jesus. Can we try first to feel joy in our hearts because we are loved? Then we can emanate our joy through our actions . Our faith leads to our actions.
We thank the Lord for this. I try to remember my one purpose is my obedience. I try to remember discouragement is a tool of destruction from the enemy. I will encourage all I can for it fills me with joy to do God’s work.
…i remind myself that angst and despondancy are products of a separation of God and myself. we all know how to return, so I return.
