Fellowship with the Holy Spirit, Jesus Christ and Father God. To be able to consciously be in His presence and to be able to be all that He has called me to with every breath.
Oh, if I could be joyful always; pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for me in Christ Jesus. (1 Thess.5:23)
To make it my ambition to lead a quite life, to mind my own business and to work with my hands, just as scripture says, so that my daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that I will not be dependent on anybody…( 1 Thes. 4:11-12)
To be able to pray without ceasing; to be reverent in the way I live, not to be a slanderer, or addicted to much of anything, but to teach what is good. That I may be able to teach by example what is good. That I may love my husband and children, to be self-controlled and pure, busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to my husband, that I would not malign the Word of God. (1Titus 2:3-5)
I know all these things are possible through fellowship with the Holy Spirit. If I could just keep things simple in my mind. It seems as if I complicate things way to much as I contemplate how I feel and base my actions on that versus the truth about any given circumstance that arises during the day. If the truth of God could be my center through all my words and actions…
Oh, and there I go again with the “if only.” Well, let me remedy that by saying that I am going to be striving to have the sweet fellowship of the Trinity as I go throughout today, tomorrow and all of tomorrows tomorrows.
Practically here are some steps that I am going to take:
– Get into Scripture daily – write some on my fridge, on the banner on my cell phone, on the blackboard in my kitchen, on my mirror in my bathroom…
– I will say a word of thanks for the many, many blessings I have when the twinge of desiring something I don’t have comes over me.
– I will continue to keep the television off during the days unless it is a designated “tv” time so that my ears are only hear the music I play, the sound of my kids, or the voices of friends throughout my home.
-I will hesitate before I speak to my children so that I my voice will be sure to be filled with the type of love that they need at any given moment.
All right, I know there are so many more things that I can do in order to be all that God has called me to, but right now, today, I’m going to focus on those four things.
So friend, is constant fellowship something you strive for, or have attained? If so, what actions during your day do you do, or can you do to accomplish it? I’d love to hear what they are if you care to comment, please, share any insight you have!
