Are You Tired....Why?

I've read quiet a few Blog post lately,and the main point is "Being Radical" for Jesus! But when I read a little farther I'm seeing self righteousness,whenever you start competing for this & that,it's not being Radical.When God called us through his Son Jesus Christ,it was to do his will,and his yoke is light.Competing and trying to do all of this & that, the right way(according to who?)is what makes you tired! God didn't call you to do what Sam or Sally does,he called you by your name Isaiah 43:1 and that makes you special.So why waste your time & talent trying to do what others do,making yourself a mess.Running all over the place because,well I've just got to do this because,if I don't it want get done! Yes it will! If we could just settle down and take a long look at why we do what we do? then we'll soon see,it's not what you're suppose to be doing,really. Jesus said my peace I give unto you: (the same peace I walked on earth in)not as the world gives;give I to you,so don't be troubled or afraid. John 14:27] Trying to be and do what others do causes a lot of stress!Fear & doubt causes bondage,and Jesus has set us free,so stop trying to do what others think or say is right and seek God.
To much confusion and not enough time being spent with God,that's not radical,it's silliness.May God give you wisdom and knowledge when spending time in his word,so that you will obey only him.Amen

so good! I have been thinking a lot about what I put in my mind. I can even think I need to look like so and so and become discontent with the way God made me. This was so good!!!

Yep, what others think, do, or expect is truly inconsequential. What God wants and expects is everything.
