Is it time for your check-up? Your spiritual check-up? Have you been missing prayer time or Bible study lately? Still feeling connected, yet detached somehow? Still talking the talk, but stumbling a little on the walk?
Think on this little gem I came across. I think it may help all of us do our necessary check-ups.
"If you don't LIVE it, you don't BELIEVE it."
Now there's a sobering thought. Please reflect on it for a few moments.
I'm going to make sure I am living what I believe and I hope you will too.
God Bless You.

We are to strive to live our life as Christ has told us to, by keeping His commandments and showing love for one another. I believe I see this in your writing, and I highly commend you for stating it. We are not perfect, but we are not exactly helpless either, for we have the power of Christ to help us as we war against sin in our lives. Thank you for sharing your encouragement for us to live a more holy life before God. Where we fail, Christ will do the rest, as our lives are in obedience to Him.
Now let's look at the Message version of Romans 7:14-16 I can anticipate the response that is coming: "I know that all God's commands are spiritual, but I'm not. Isn't this also your experience?" Yes. I'm full of myself—after all, I've spent a long time in sin's prison. What I don't understand about myself is that I decide one way, but then I act another, doing things I absolutely despise. So if I can't be trusted to figure out what is best for myself and then do it, it becomes obvious that God's command is necessary.
Good food for thought sis! God bless, Jounda
