This standard requires me to focus on God more than I focus on the latest hit on the radio…to wear binders and focus on my future when popular moments are passing me by…to pray and stay in God’s presence more than I stay on facebook, twitter and other social networking sites…this standard requires me to love my enemies and treat them with respect….to give up control and let God run the show…to have faith in and trust God fully even though I’ve never seen his face (but constantly feel his presence)…this standard requires me to let God fight my battles when I want to take matters into my own hands…to be more thankful and not complain…to give God my best in all I do…to worship God in spirit and in true which means outside of church too……what this standard requires can make you an outcast but I’d rather have God on my side than fake friends in my face. This standard has changed who I once was…impacted who I become….
Having a conversation with God makes everything so much better! God gives me peace…he gives me clarity…he warms my heart! He is every moment that I encounter. It’s just amazing to feel his presence…to hear his voice…to be comforted by him! I love him! I am enlightened :)
For the last couple of mornings Psalm 98 has been on my mind. Verse one and four says : O sing unto the LORD a new song; for he hath done marvellous things: his right hand, and his holy arm, hath gotten him the victory. Make a joyful noise
unto the LORD, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise! God not only deserves a new song but a new praise…a new sound..new joyful noise…its a new day let us rejoice and be glad in it!
