Fix it Jesus!!!

Hope

Life now as I know it is constantly changing, after separating from my husband I’ve had to make a conscious effort to heal from the pain and heartbreak of that failed marriage. To be able to look at my current situation/problem and see the possibility, and see how God is gonna use this “failure” as a platform to demonstrate His glory.

The healing process isn’t quick or easy but it is a process I must go through in order to make sure that I am a whole and complete person, before I can even consider giving myself to another person. The holy spirit has made me understand that the broken feeling I’m feeling is a opportunity for God to fix me again with Him as my foundation.

So I was listening to a sermon by T.D. Jakes “7 tips for a single person”. I’ll outline the seven (techinally eight) tips and below you can listen to the sermon yourself.

  1. Have a deeper relationship with God
  2. Seek a whole life as a single person
  3. Set a guard on your heart
  4. Develop interests
  5. Avoid people who seek to control and silence your personality
  6. Respect marriage, don’t worship marriage
  7. Live and budget within your means
  8. Exercise your body, exercise your mind

 

 

After listening to this sermon I decided I would work on building a greater relationship with God. My first port of call was the fruits of the spirit (Galatians 5:22-23); Love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. So I decided to look at how I display each ‘fruit’ and challenge myself to do better.
This is a work in progress.

These fruits of the spirit can be implemented in our daily lives if we live by the spirit and keep in step with the spirit. Galatians 5:16 (NKJV)
