2 Corinthians 5:15 Jesus died for all so that those who live would not continue to live for themselves. He died for them and was raised from death so that they would live for him.

Not Good Enough?

There’s a thing that happens when we put our trust in this Jesus whom God sent to take away our sins. And that is, indeed, why God sent Him to die on that Cross. And that thing that happens isn’t small. It’s huge. It’s a complete gamechanger.

Some days it seems as though you’re trying your best, but somehow your best simply isn’t good enough. I’ve been there. You’ve been there. We look at ourselves in the mirror and wonder, “What’s the matter with me? Why am I like this?” Somehow we just don’t measure up to the challenges before us, or the expectations of the people around us. And just about then, you hear a small, still voice.

That’s not how I see you.

Who’s that …who?

When my Son died for you on that cross – He died for you. He’s taken all your “not good enoughs” on His shoulders. In my eyes, they are no more.

Really? What does that mean?

It means that when I look at you, I see you as you were meant to be. And as I walk with you, and you with me, step by step, you’ll become the person I made you to be.

Of course that’s not just me saying that.

2 Corinthians 5:15
Jesus died for all so that those who live would not continue to live for themselves. He died for them and was raised from death so that they would live for him.

Yes, Jesus died so that your sins could be forgiven. Yes, He paid that price … but with an objective, an end goal, in mind, He was also raised from death so that they would live for him.

It’s a new life. A life we live for Him. The past is irrelevant. A glorious future lies ahead in Christ. The key is living for Him, not for yourself.

That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.

Yes, that’s right, we don’t live for ourselves but we live our lives for Jesus and by receiving Jesus and giving up our lives so that He can come to live in us giving us His Holy Spirit.’
After repentance and a total inventory truly of our lives, God knows us better than we or anybody else knows us and His review of our lives is important because it highlights all of the times that we shared, cared and gave to others , while people lied about us trying to pretend that we were a bad ( we grow up feeling guilty for feeling) child and disrespectful of the adults around us BUT what they did not say, was how disrespectful and nasty and cruel that they were to us as a child!
Oh the truth comes out and God is very real.’
People jeer and say all kinds of things regarding God and they don’t even read His word and a lot don’t even believe in God.
It’s quite a shock for some people when God really does show up in a person’s life and people whom are believers may not want to believe or acknowledge Gods bringing out of His spiritual gifts that He created in us because it means AMENDMENTS need to be made to a whole bunch of Acts and Laws.
People, God does not have favourites.
God will use people that you may not see as being worthy or fit .
God only knows.

We have a duty of care unto ourselves for GOD He loves us and it is not called being selfish to SELF CARE so that we can carry out day to day living as a parent or a guardian of another human being or animal for that matter too.
It is not selfish at all whatsoever to live our own lives and not be busybodies trying to live another person’s life.
Busy is acronym for Busy Under Satan’s Yoke.
Children require parents to care for them and that is huge responsibility and so whether we have a job or are at home 24/7 being a parent we must be as alert as we can be and sober is best and giving up smoking is a good idea ( $62.40 I saw a person pay for a packet of 40 cigarettes).
Everybody gets the same rate of money on jobseeker allowance and family tax benefits depending on the age of children and how many children .Rent, Electricity, Communication is a necessity of life and even the judge in the courtroom will tell you that having communication is an order for a child to reach out.’
The internet enables children who are isolated to be connected via the internet and it’s not all bad.

When God becomes our first and foremost , and Jesus is our best friend .
We make changes to be more healthy wealthy and wise.
Because we love God and we want Him to see our gratitude for our lives that He has so given us through Jesus sacrifice by dying on the cross .

God will do His work in us to ignite our spiritual gifts and to guide us each and every day exercising our unique qualities and talents that He created within us .
We will never be good enough for the world not ever and we will always be criticised and called names and insulted and ridiculed and mocked for when we stand up for ourselves , after copping years and years of mental, emotional , psychological and SPIRITUAL abuse.’
We will be called selfish and people walk past us eyeballing as if we are criminals for living with our connected spirituality.
survival is built into the human DNA.
When we live in a confined space surrounded by haters because we stood and remain standing up against evil.’
We must live our own lives but not for ourselves but for God.
Giving up is not an option as it just passes the buck along so to speak.
We do have our own unique identities and people cannot victimise us forever.
God is almighty and He is a supernatural God too, so LOGIC is not How our Father in Heaven works.
We must look after our neighbours and not for show either because God sees what’s done when nobody else is watching .
The key is to live our lives for Jesus and not for ourselves but may the works of God be done using our WILL for His Will be done.
Mercy. Grace . incorruptible Peace and Joy that the WORLD cannot steal away.
