It has been a year today that I quit smoking, now, one year later and more than 20 pounds heavier it’s time to take action! I want to exercise more, and eat more responsible.
To make me stronger in my faith I also started a 30 days @YouVersion(Bibleapp) program called “Stay Fit: Strengthening your connection to Jesus”. This is the first day and I want to try to post on Instagram every day just to hold myself accountable. And maybe at the same time, inspire others to join me on this journey.
Today the question is: Am I satisfied in You Jesus?” Psalms 63:2-5 NIV
“I have seen you in the sanctuary and beheld your power and your glory. Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you. I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands. I will be fully satisfied as with the richest of foods; with singing lips my mouth will praise you.”
In order to feel satisfied in Jesus, we have to invite Him into our lives. All we have to do is ask Jesus to help us recognize His presence, because He is with us always—whether we are aware of it or not.
So often do we let things keep us from simply inviting Him in! We grab our phone, watch hours of TV or play video games, or whatever our distraction. But we don’t have to fill our minds with distractions, we can instead enjoy a beautiful life and fill our minds and hearts with Christ. All we need to do is ask Jesus to give us the strength to approach Him and the vision to enjoy Him . . . and He will deliver!
We serve a personal God, One who wants to be in a relationship with us!
- Have you taken the time today to approach Jesus?
- What is keeping you from approaching Him?
- Begin by calling His name, “Jesus.” Take a walk and talk to Him like you would a friend. If you want to know Him and want for Him to know you, you have to be in one another’s presence!
