What Season Are You In?

Did you know there is a reason you are in the season you are in NOW.

My revelation in being Single. God knows, I am not ready for a relationship b/c my flesh is still weak in certain areas – especially, being celibate. It’s a struggle remaining celibate, while I wait on my Spouse to arrive.  Oh, sweet Jesus!  I wrote a blog about that Waiting for Marriage For Sex

Sadly, to say…I slipped up after writing that blog…well it wasn’t right after it - but a few months later…and not once but twice! Oh yeah, horrible! I know! Holds head down! BUT when I did – oh, did I feel HORRIBLE for doing so! Well, afterwards. Man, you can’t believe how bad I felt. Then it didn't work AND well that made the feeling of guilt worse! 

During, this time I did not post any encouragement during that season b/c I felt so convicted spiritually…and not like a good leader. So, I was silent – while I got myself together. I even wrote the guy a letter apologizing for even allowing myself to take it that far…b/c how could anyone trust me to tell them the word – if I wasn’t living it. Oh, yeah! Gotta be living and speaking what you tell others to do. I am a firm believer in practicing what you preach. After my slip up - I repented in January 2013 and got back on board to practicing celibacy...so far doing good. *Cheers*

Then a few months later, I saw the movie Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor – Oh yeah – that encouraged me even more to wait!! 

BUT still knowing all these things and all the consequences and pain that comes from not being obedient. It’s still hard! The spirit is willing but the flesh is so weak!

Believe it or not just b/c someone is "Spiritual" doesn’t mean they don’t have issues. There are just some areas, that some of us are a little weak in. My issue is being complacent while I wait. If, I were in a relationship right now…my little butt probably would have committed a sin…b/c of my strong fleshy desires. Just being super honest. I told a friend recently, when I do enter in a relationship - I don't believe we can even kiss b/c my lil self will want to do more. So, the first time I kiss my future husband - will more than likely be on our wedding day! In order, for me to control myself. So, I see why I am single. God needs to know that I will be FAITHFUL to Him, by being obedient, in this season of my life before He UPGRADES me! 

One morning, I texted a friend asking for a good scripture to meditate on to help me. They didn't respond... So, I was like let me just go to the source GOD! I was like Lord, I need help in this area. Give me a scripture. So, he gave me this one: if we deliberately continue sinning after we have received knowledge of the truth, there is no longer any sacrifice that will cover these sins. Hebrews 10:26 NLT

After reading, that I was like Oh, Lord! Whew! Ouch, I hear you!! So, now whenever I think to do anything that I have KNOWLEDGE of the TRUTH – Hebrews 10:26 will pop in my head – His words are so POWERFUL!

Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, 
you are really my disciples.  
Then you will know the truth, 
and the truth will set you free.”

Knowing what the WORD of GOD says about your situation. Holding on to what Jesus has taught us…we then know the TRUTH about how we are to conduct ourselves. When we know better, we ought to do better AND knowing the TRUTH will set us FREE.

We all want to know the TRUTH right…b/c knowing the TRUTH makes us feel better - well eventually, if not right away. We don’t want to live a lie. Right? 

So, I encourage you to study God’s word to know the TRUTH about your life and your situations. Everything you need to know is right in the book = BIBLE!

Know that whatever season you find yourself in. You are in it for a reason. God is trying to teach you something and when you LEARN what you should…He will then move you on up like the Jeffersons! :)   

I encourage you to STAY in the word and it will build you up, in whatever areas, you are weak in AND you will conquer that area through Christ! Amen! God’s word NEVER fails! [Isaiah 55:11]

As for God, His way is PERFECT. 
All the Lord’s promises prove TRUE. 
He is a shield for all who look to Him for PROTECTION.  Psalm 18:30

Love, Peace and Christ brings out the TRUE Beauty in YOU!
