Girl, Please, Don’t You Have Another Topic?

16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
2 Timothy 3:16 -17

Don’t you have anything else to talk about?
Are you so religious, that every conversation leads to a topic on God?
Why do you always go there?
Don’t you have knowledge about other things?

Listen,
Let me set the record straight.

But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.
Luke 12:48

You see, I am a sinner saved by God’s grace. I, who was guilty, is now forgiven.
I who had nothing to call my own, have been given the treasure of heaven. Yes, in me is deposited the very presence of the Most High, by way of the Holy Spirit.
Jesus gave me Card Blanche. That is He gave me access to God’s grace, God’s mercy, God’s forgiveness, God’s love is real in my own life.

Come on what about the latest music artist?
Hey, I have a new song…
I will sing of the mercies of the LORD for ever: With my mouth will I make known thy faithfulness to all generations.
Psalm 89:1

What about the weather and the storms coming?

Hey I know the Master of the wind.
You see,
Then Jesus got up and rebuked the wind and the sea. “Silence!” He commanded. “Be still!” And the wind died down, and it was perfectly calm.
Mark 4:39

But you don’t have a clue what may be going on inside your body, aren’t you concerned?

I need not worry. My Maker is God, He knows what’s up with me.
I said to Yahweh, “You are my Maker and my Master. Any good thing you find in me has come from you.”
Psalms 16:2

Aren’t you worried?
Your health, your tomorrows, Aren’t you concerned?

Hey I know what the Word says about me…

You formed my innermost being, shaping my delicate inside and my intricate outside, and wove them all together in my mother’s womb. I thank you, God, for making me so mysteriously complex! Everything you do is marvelously breathtaking. It simply amazes me to think about it! How thoroughly you know me, Lord! You even formed every bone in my body when you created me in the secret place; carefully, skillfully you shaped me from nothing to something. You saw who you created me to be before I became me! Before I’d ever seen the light of day, the number of days you planned for me were already recorded in your book. Every single moment you are thinking of me! How precious and wonderful to consider that you cherish me constantly in your every thought! O God, your desires toward me are more than the grains of sand on every shore! When I awake each morning, you’re still with me.
Psalms 139:13‭-‬18

But you are alone and have no one, how do you think you will fair out there?

Well, I know what the Lord has said to me…
It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.” Deuteronomy 31:8

Well, you should keep your feet on the ground. Be realistic. What will you do? How will you know what to do or what direction to take?

Well, I know what the Word says, For God himself makes it known to me.
When I look in it I understand…
Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path.
Psalms 119:105

I guess you really use your faith as a go to. It is your crutch.

Well, when I have it as my armour and as my covering I am able to stand no matter what comes.

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
Ephesians 6:10‭-‬11

Hey but it seems you only look to God. For everything, that is extreem.

Well, you see, left to my own devices I would have been doomed. But when I see what God has done through Jesus for me, it is my hope.
I look to…

“Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
Hebrews 12:2

Listen, He took my shame and my blame, my wrongs and my wanderings, my failures and my shortcomings and nailed them to the cross for me. What I deserved was condemnation. Yes, punishment for my sin. But he paid my debt. He took my place.

He Himself is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.
1 John 2:2

Then, how could He not be the center of my life? How could this Jesus not be the object of my existence.

He loved me with an everlasting love. (Jeremiah 31:3)

He calls out to you as well. He wants to draw you near.
His Word says,
“I drew them with gentle cords, With bands of love, And I was to them as those who take the yoke from their neck. I stooped and fed them.”
Hosea 11:4

Jesus is the Lifter of my head.
But You, O LORD, are a shield around me, my glory, and the One who lifts my head. Psalm 3:3

He has given me a true identity.
“But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of (A)darkness into His marvelous light; 1 Peter 2:9

He has placed a high price for my freedom.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16

Knowing that you were ransomed from the futile ways inherited from your forefathers, not with perishable things such as silver or gold, but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without blemish or spot. 1 Peter 1:18 -19.

So, hey, let me tell you.The topic of your successes is a good one. You want to tell me about how you are doing, its okay.
If you are hurting, I am here for you my brother, my sister, but rest assured, I have to tell you.
That every good and perfect gift comes from the Father of lights.
James 1:17.

And even if ypu do not choose to acknowledge God, the Bible tells me,
That I need to be different. I need to be like Jesus.

Jesus tells us this…
But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you,
that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.
Mathew 5:44 – 45.

God is good. He is so good he opened up this moment for us to chat.
So, I will pray for you. I also will trust that one day God will bless ypu with Himself.

He is the object of my affection and the purpose of my life.
So, have a good one.

………………………………………
Converations I have had. Throughout my life.
All in one… in order to point all to Him.

He Loves us.
Jesus is Lord and Redeemer and Saviour and My Friend and My God.
