Stop Trying And Follow Me

Stop Trying And Follow Me

Stop Trying And Follow Me

Stop trying to fit in and follow Me

Stop trying to be what others expect you to be and follow Me

Stop trying to make a vision yours when I am no longer calling you to it and follow Me

Stop trying to create passion where none exists and follow Me

Stop trying to breathe life into what I’ve pronounced dead and follow Me

Stop trying to prop open doors that I have declared closed and follow Me

Stop trying to fit in places you don’t belong and follow Me

You are putting bands around your neck and burdens upon your shoulders

Stop trying and follow Me

When Others Speak A Sharp Piercing Word

When Others Speak A Sharp Piercing Word

When Others Speak A Sharp Piercing Word

When a sharp piercing word is released over your life don’t bristle, don’t worry, don’t stew,

Just humble yourself and fall on your knees and ask God if it’s relevant to you.

Then allow His Spirit to search your heart and explore it in-depth with His Light,

For establishing Truth in your innermost part is His desire and honorable and right.

Whatever He shows as He begins to expose don’t justify, deny or resent,

Just say, “Lord I agree, please forgive me” and with a broken, contrite heart repent.

But if nothing is there don’t allow false despair, you’ve done your soul-searching part,

Arise from the place, empowered by grace and your steps He’ll continue to chart.

“But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.”

(James 4:6 – KJV)
