I saw this status on Facebook from Joyce Meyers and it really hits home with my current situation:
When God asks for our heart, He is asking for our entire life, which includes our personality, character, body, mind & emotions.
Even in church on Friday, my pastor talked about how we can do church like activities, but still not have peace or rest in our souls. Going to church, doing praise and worship, reading the bible and praying don’t mean anything if what we’re saying and doing physically isn’t something we believe in our own hearts and minds. We can’t just use the actions as cover ups to still do what we want to do. We must reach a place in our life where we conclude that God’s way is the only way and nothing else out there in the world will allow us to prosper. Only when our souls are in true agreement with God will we find complete and total peace.
