Frustrated? It’s time to be Radical!
Journal Entry for January 25, 2017
John 12:43 “For they loved human praise more than the praise of God.”
I do NOT want to desire human praise more than man’s praise. Help me Lord, if I do! Point it out to me. Force me to see myself. How will I get to more like You if I do not see myself as You see me?
I am frustrated with women who only want to see good in people. I get frustrated with mamby-pamby, “feel good all the time” women.
I want to shine for You Lord. If I’m a star for Jesus, I don’t want to hear anyone singing Twinkle Twinkle Little star when they see me…I want people to see the Milky Way or Hailey’s Comet. I want to shine and make a difference.
With the women’s march in DC this past weekend, at least one thing good happened…they marched! They did SOMETHING! They let their voices be heard. When was the last time Christian women were so radical for YOU? The Crusades? The Gladiators? At least these women, as vulgar as they were, at least they did something.
In anything, we women in this country have gotten too soft. We’ve been taught to be nice…nice girls sit down,…nice girls don’t make waves…nice girls are quiet….
We are in a battle Ladies!!! We’re at war! We fight a war unseen by human eyes. We fight with weapons the world cannot understand.
The march on DC was not a march of womanhood—it was a march of satan trying to divide humans. Nothing More Than That! God wants us unified. The women marching are not my enemies. They are women, that’s all. Just women!
There are three things true of all women everywhere. 1.) We are women. We are born physically different than a male. 2.) We have all been hurt in our past. These hurts reach deep into our heart. 3.) Every woman has tried to fix the hurting heart by any number of ways other than the One True Fix.
And a fourth thing true about every woman is also true about every male…The hurting heart can only be fixed by Jesus. He is the One True Fix to a hurting heart. With Him, we are given mercy, strength, peace and love. Amen.
That was my journal writing for today…
and if I have offended anyone…oh well! You see, my frustration started when I studied John 12 and in verses 39-43, scripture quotes Isaiah from the old testament, “people couldn’t believe. The Lord has blinded their eyes and hardened their hearts. So that their eyes cannot see and their hearts cannot understand and they cannot turn to me have me heal them.”
Can you hear the frustration on the Lord’s heart? He gave these folks every chance to see Him, to Hear Him, to love Him. And what did they do? They turned away from Him. God hardened their hearts and they lost the opportunity to know Him. I do not want that happening to any woman or man living today.
Ladies, it is time we quit being sensitive. It’s time we love God more than we care what someone thinks about us. It’s time to lay everything on the line to follow Him! It’s time to be radical for Jesus! It’s time to desire, to hunger for, to not settle for anything less than the Praise of our Savior Jesus Christ. It’s time to march, it’s time to march onward all you Christian Soldiers!
