I love working on Saturday mornings…because rarely anyone is in the office and I can listen to Spotify as loud as I want. :)
When you realize how long ago a person stopped caring for you, it finally feels alright to let them go.
Maybe I’m just being dramatic, but I literally don’t understand or seem to comprehend how some people can’t answer a simple question via text. I just don’t don’t get it.
29 Once when Jacob was cooking some stew, Esau came in from the open country, famished.30 He said to Jacob, “Quick, let me have some of that red stew! I’m famished!” (That is why he was also called Edom.) 31 Jacob replied, “First sell me your birthright.” 32 “Look, I am about to die,” Esau said. “What good is the birthright to me?” 33 But Jacob said, “Swear to me first.” So he swore an oath to him, selling his birthright to Jacob. 34 Then Jacob gave Esau some bread and some lentil stew. He ate and drank, and then got up and left. So Esau despised his birthright.
I’m so thankful that God gave this scripture to my friend this morning because God’s been speaking to me about it all day! God’s been speaking to me about what we settle for. When we choose to satisfy our flesh with temporary desires, it is not God who loses out on seeing us truly blessed, but it is us who forfeit our own calling, our own destiny, and our own “birthright” when we give in to our flesh. We sell off our future and simply say, “What good is this birthright to me, anyways?” And I didn’t realize it until now.
I don’t ever want to forfeit myself out of what God truly has stored up for me in Heaven by selling out for the things of this earth by having a time in the flesh. Don’t sell yourself so short. Know that the treasures and riches that God has far surpasses any wealth, relationship, or status this world could ever offer.
Trying to remain strong when everything just wants to give up.
I’m looking forward to that second wind.
Currently, I’m learning not to focus so much on being perfect and more on just being His. There really is no better place to be.
"You need only to be still." Totally got encouraged by this word today while I was editing one of Dr. Marocco’s sermons! Soooo good!
