My Heart Was Hot

Featured imageIn the morning, I mused, and my heart was hot, burning to the core.

I spoke to God:

“Oh Lord, open my mind to know the days of my life.

Teach me to measure them.  Quicken me to know my end.

God, I am frail.

 Undeniably, my years are breaths, mist, fading.

I am a shadow.

You gaze on me.  Look away from me so my strength returns before I slip away.

Oh my God, I fall short.  Show compassion on me because I know you forgive with unconditional love.”

Dale

My prayer is an adaptation of Psalms 39:  3-6, & 13.

Peace Fills

Psalms 39

3 My heart was hot within me; While I was musing, the fire burned. Then I spoke with my tongue.

4 “Lord, make me to know my end, And what is the measure of my days, That I may know how frail I am.

“Indeed, You have made my days as handbreadths, And my age is as nothing before You; Certainly every man at his best state is but vapor. Selah.

6 “Surely every man walks about like a shadow; Surely they busy themselves in vain; He heaps up riches, And does not know who will gather them. …

13 “Remove Your gaze from me, that I may regain strength, Before I go away and am no more” (NKJV, 1982, Psalm 39:3 – 6, & 13).

Stop Pornography: Exalt God the King

When I experienced sexual feelings, I checked my focus, thoughts, and actions.  If I lingered too long and lusted, I cried out to God for strength.

When I did not call on the Great eternal spirit of the Universe, I eventually ended up looking at pornography.

God created me and is compassionate and gracious; rich with love and slow to anger (Psalm 145:9, 2011, NIV).

Sexual feelings provide self-awareness to shift thoughts, if necessary.

God Is Spiritual, not Religious.

Psalm 145

A psalm of praise, of David

I will exalt you, my God the King; I will praise your name for ever and ever. Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; his greatness no one can fathom. 9The Lord is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and rich in love (2011). Peace Fills. Thanks, DaleHelps

Discomfort

Discover Clarity: Find Comfort

Devotionals for Men and Women;

These Devotions Give You Clarity.

“Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort”- 2 Corinthian 1:3.

Discomfort: Low intensity, uncomfortable feelings bother you because they produce low levels of discomfort. You don’t know why, but you feel things are not quite right.

You feel boredom, unease or a slight distress.

You just feel off; things are not going right.

Power: Having Clarity Gives Comfort

Lesson: Become clear. Decide what you want. Make a decision.

Strength: Focus on what you want most. Confess what you want most. And, do only the things that you want most. This is clarity.  

Shadow: Focsusing on Discomfort. Wearing it as a “Badge of Courage” instead of discovering why you feel the way you do.

Is there a decision you have been putting off? Then, Follow the 3 secret steps.

Three Secret Steps (ask God for help):

  1. God, what’s the most important thing in my life now? 
  2. God, what’s the best way to confess what I want without sounding religious? (confession creates peak states of mind, faith)
  3. And, God, what do I need to do right now to anchor clarity into my life?

Be ready; have pencil and paper in hand; sometimes, God  answers quite quickly.

When answers come, do something immediately to give you clarity.

To your peace,

Dale 
P.S. Daily read and meditate on the scriptures. The words you read give you clarity and then comfort. This is God’s way.
