So Tuhday I got a reminder from the Holy Spirit to check myself.
I overheard a conversation and the person was asking someone for a bible. Good news right? Well an evil thought enters my head like “soon as they get caught up they want a bible”! The Holy Spirit quickly, I mean immediately reminded me “That’s when they need one”. I was so ashamed .. I didn’t say it out loud, the horror was that I could even think it. The Holy Spirit reminded me that I have more work to do on myself.
Jesus told us to come to him when this life gets too hard, that’s what he wants. I had the audacity to think something negative about someone wanting to turn to God; knowing that once upon a time and often in my every day life I am weary and need the Bible and everything in it to help me.
““Come to me all of you who are tired from the heavy burden you have been forced to carry. I will give you rest.”
Matthew 11:28 ERV
So the next time I think something negative I’m going to remind myself that we have to help each other. I am also going to keep my mind stayed on Jesus so those thoughts don’t have room to grow.
“I mean that I want us to help each other with the faith that we have. Your faith will help me, and my faith will help you.”
Romans 1:12 ERV
