highway to holiness

We each are on a journey in this life as though traveling on a highway. Each one of our decisions direct us on this highway that ultimately leads us to our final destination, eternity. We need to choose wisely as each decision really does matter. Our most important decision is, what will we do with Jesus. Eternity, Eternity.....where will you spend eternity and what will you do with Jesus! Travel Wisely!

"on strike" with God.

Have you ever tried to go "on strike" with God.
Maybe that's too strong of language for some.
Have you ever been mad at God?
Maybe for some, that's still to strong.
Have you ever thought "where is the justice" "this isn't right" "this isn't fair".

God understands, after all, He created us as emotional beings and not robots.  He understands that our frustration comes out of our brokenness. God understands us.
Just because He understands us, does not give permission or is an acceptable behavior to pattern our life after.

This is the beauty of God, even with our "temper tantrums' or our questions of right or wrong. He still loves us. He still longs for us to engage in conversation with Him.  He doesn't mind if we let it all out.

But after we've been allowed to holler and question, He wants to have "His time" to speak.

And when He speaks, He gently says, "let's talk about your anger towards Me.  He doesn't take us out back and discipline us for our emotions.  Instead, He loving says, now that you know I won't be controlled by you and your emotions; and you understand I will not be manipulated by your silence towards Me, I am still God and My love for you hasn't changed.  I'm the same God that loved you before your "tantrum" I loved you through your anger and I will still keep loving you.

But, let's get this straight, I AM GOD and YOU ARE NOT.  And once you understand this proper order, you will never be angry with Me again.
He continues " a believer that gets angry with Me, is one that has a religious mind set and  thinks they can control My Spirit or manipulate Me.  But once you understand and establish within your heart that I AM GOD and I will not be manipulated or controlled by good or bad behavior, you will never be angry with Me again.
