I've had so many conversations lately with folks (including myself... yes. I talk to myself.) about how difficult it is to "commit" yourself to the Lord.
"Well... what if I really decide to trust in the Lord but I don't see any change?"
"I want to be a different person - but I don't think I can be or the process is to hard."
Two simple truths from Psalm 37:5
1. If you give yourself to the Lord. He WILL act. No ifs ands or buts. That's a promise. He will move and be at work in your life if you trust in him. That's it. Period.
2. If you take the first steps to commit yourself to him. If you just trust that he fulfills his promises (see #1)... Then HE will act. We pretend like being a "good christian" is all about what WE can do instead of what HE does in us.
Trust that he will. and he WILL.
(now watch this smooth transition)
I LOVE natural disasters. (haha). As long as no one's getting hurt - I will take a snow storm, wind storm, thunder and lightning... you name it. I enjoy it. Pics here are from our make-shift dinner. A little propane on the porch makes for a delicious chili dinner cooked by my brother-in-law for us and our neighbors.
(love the way the pictures look! ... My camera was not a fan though - I had to get obscenely close in order to snap these photos. I'm one of those crazy picture people. I admit it.)
