I first want to say great job on your walking daily Claudia. Unlike you, I have not made the time to exercise, and my eating has either been really good or really bad depending on the meal/day.
I spent time in prayer today and realized that sometimes we work so hard at earning grace, salvation, holiness and we don't have to. Let me explain...I know we are to strive for these things, but sometimes I feel like I am trying to earn them from God, not just thanking and praising Him for these things already. I get so focused on myself, my victories, my failures, not on how AWESOME He is. How Jesus has completed the work already. How God just desires a relationship with us. I am a sinner, and will be this side of heaven. He knows that, He is not surprised by it. However, He expects us to give Him our all. Jesus replied: " 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' Matt 22:37. I get so wrapped up in DOING things and not just ACCEPTING His free gift of His Son. If I would spend half the energy that I do with obsessing about myself and would be at His feet instead, I would fall more in love with my Lord and Savior. I would desire to please Him more, it would be more natural to do that.
What are your thoughts on that?
Thanks for reading.
