If you've been reading Life with Lynnie (LwL) lately and wondered if I was feeling out of sorts physically, you are correct.
If you've been thinking I've been feeling stressed or low in spirit, this may be the case. Well, sort of.
Let's face it. Anyone going through physical trauma in life, isn't going to feel 'up' 100% of the time. And, when I write entries here on LwL, I try to convey how I'm feeling. Pain-wise, and emotionally.
After all, I am only human.
And, if I didn't write about these things, meaning if I only wrote about my trust in the Lord, no one would have the smallest inkling that I struggle. Just like you. Just like everyone else.
Being a humble person, I realize that I need to convey the reality of the situations I write about.
Does this mean I am perfect? Absolutely, not!
But, if you only thought I could write about Jesus and how wonderful He is in my life, how would you or indeed, anyone have any idea that I struggle, just like other people?
After all, God did tell us that we would have trials in life. 1 Peter 4:12 tells us, "Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:"
Friend, if you're reading this, and don't ever have trials in your life, do you wonder why not? If it were me, I would be wondering.
In fact, if it were me, I would be praying about it, that God would reveal to me the truth; His truth. I would be wondering if indeed I was even truly saved. After all, if God told us to expect trials, and we didn't have any... what else could this mean?
There are many people walking around, thinking they will be going to heaven.
Some may be what I call nominal Christians. Those who have been raised in homes where they considered themselves to be Christian, knowing that historically, Jesus Christ lived and died, and was resurrected. Even if they never read God's Word, the Bible, or go worship Him.
But, there's a difference between knowing historically, and having a relationship with Jesus. There's a difference in having head knowledge, believing He existed... and being thankful and trusting in the finished work He did on the cross at Calvary.
If you haven't yet had a relationship with Jesus, as Lord and Saviour, where you are trusting in Him, for everything in your life, then I recommend you reconsider your position.
Please, repent of your sin. Turn away from the evilness of life. And, trust in Jesus Christ.
If you do this, you'll be glad you did.
Until next time...
