Welcome! Thanks for dropping by to check out my personal blog.
If you’re hungry to know God, or you’re tired of striving to be a “good Christian,” then I urge you to stop doing things for God and learn to be in His presence.
“God values who we become more than what we do for Him.”
I had to learn the hard way.
For you see, I was a performance-driven Christian. My goal in life was to know God better so I could please Him and in return earn God’s love.
I knew I couldn’t earn my eternal salvation. God’s Word is clear on that subject:
“For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, that no one should boast” (Ephesians 2:8,9)
But I spent much of my life trying to “be a better Christian” and “serve God” as if that would make Him love me more.
Could God love me any more than when He sent His Son Jesus to die on the cross for my sins?
“But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8)
When I finally rested in the knowledge that God’s love for me is everlasting and based on who He is rather than who I am, I was able to stop “doing things” for God and learn to “seek God” for Himself alone.
Psalm 16:11 “In Thy presence is fullness of joy.”
That’s the truth!
And it has made all the difference in my life.

Thanks again, for visiting. Just remember, we’re all a work in progress.
When we learn to love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength (Mark 12:30) we can’t help but be changed by His love and the power of the Holy Spirit.
