Preception Pending…

enlight1Over the last day or so… I’ve found myself angry… Angry with God… With things He’s spoken to me before and how they contradict what he’s speaking today… So… For about a day… Well I pouted… I had an attitude… An attitude that was filled with ideas that said, “now you want me to do this? What if it’s a waste of my time? But you told me this before?…”

Basically the pieces weren’t adding up… And that’s when a friend helped me realize my preception of God was off… That my past thinking was filled with a slave mentality…

That I believed that I had to “do” so many things for God to “be” God in my life… For Him to help me out, qualify and love me too…

So… Yesterday when this truth over a preception was spoken into my life… Well I realized it’s my responsibility to just be… To just try with all that’s in me to be God’s daughter… And to come to a place where everything I am in life has to do with His love and grace in my life… And that it has nothing to do with me…

That my ideas of what I’ve done… My ideas over the work I’ve done… The places I’ve moved to in life… Even the goodness that I believe I’ve earned… Well none of that is true…

What is true?… Religion has taught me to believe that I have to keep doing and doing and doing to gain God… To gain His forgiveness, His love, His gifts, His righteousness and His goodness… But that’s entirely untrue…

Because… As I begin to peel back even more religion from my soul… Well I’m learning that I don’t have to do a thing… I accepted Jesus… And that was more than enough… Enough to gain His forgiveness, His love, His gifts, His righteousness and His goodness…

And I do believe this is a fresh, yet eternal truth in my life… And I do believe it will now continue to grow and be cultivated… As I just continue to live… To just live and be the daughter God created me to be…
