I Am Leaving Behind The Things Of This World

“In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33

Lately God has turned my world upside down. I have felt closer to him than ever before. In all honesty, this always happens to me after a relationship with a girl doesn’t work out. Isn’t that kind of pathetic? It takes heartache and heartbreaks to get me closer to God. But, that is the case, and I wouldn’t trade what God is doing in me, for any girl. I’ve learned recently, that waiting in God, can suck sometimes. But his will is absolutely perfect so who am I to argue?

I find myself in epic battles with my flesh, with this world of sin and deceit. I find myself relying on the pleasure this world wants to give me vs. the Salvation Christ already gave me. It’s wrong and I know it, but it’s right there, when God seems so distant sometimes. I know he’s not, but I can physically touch things that can get me in to trouble, but I have to speak to, or read about what can get me out of it. It’s easier to be selfish, and go with what’s at the tip of my fingers.

But see, God’s grace is incredibly beautiful, because he says: I have warned you that you’re going to screw up because of the things of this world, but Take Heart, because I have overcome this world, and all your struggles that go with it.

I wish I could sit here and tell you I’m perfect, but that will never happen, but I swear that I’m leaving behind the things of this world. My future job, My future relationships, My future wife… God has that already taken care of for me. I am putting it all in his hands.

I love you all.
