Making Changes

By Susan Gahan

When I started to get serious about my walk with Jesus, I read two chapters of my Bible daily. To read my Bible and understand it, I had to focus only on it. That meant no television and no noise.

Two chapters soon became easy, but I felt I needed more to feed my spirit-man. So I read two chapters in the morning and two in the evening. Then, I also began to say my prayers before work and whenever I felt prompted during my workday. Additionally, I began to feel the need to pray before I got in bed and then start praising God for what He has done in my life.

Your spiritual life changes and grows with time and practice. I know when it is time to do something different. First, I feel inside I need more, and then I realize it is time to make the change. I have had many changes.

Now I read my Bible at night and watch some biblical teaching by a man or woman of God, someone I know who "walks the walk," not just talks a lot; a whole lot without bearing any fruit in their lives. You will know them by their fruit (Mathew 7:15-20, NIV). Six months ago, you couldn't make me watch anyone. Now I try to tune in to watch someone every morning. That time is the most peaceful, relaxing time of the day because my spirit is getting fed. I tried to "kill two birds with one stone," reading and watching simultaneously and got nothing from it. How can you listen and read simultaneously and grasp what God is trying to say to you?

Make the necessary changes to keep God first in your life. If you are unsure what changes to make, ask him for help; the Holy Spirit will guide you.

How Was Your Day?

By Susan Gahan

How was your day? My husband asks me that question when we see each other every evening. Some people reply same ole, same ole. My husband will be sarcastic and say, "Just peachy. It couldn't have been any better." We all have our good days and bad days. Some people think things are always great once you are saved. But unfortunately, Satan wants you even more now, and He will do anything to complicate your life.

I was emailing my friend and said that I wish my road in this life was straight and had a scenic view on both sides. Can't you just imagine it? I would be riding in my red Mustang convertible with the top down, and there would be palm trees or fruit trees on either side. The wind would be blowing my hair all around. Yet, all I would see would be the beautiful horizon in front of me. I think it is blue like the sky or maybe blue like the ocean filled with all sorts of colors. Well, let me wake up to reality!

When God came into my life, He didn't promise me a hassle-free journey but eternal life. To get there, you have to continue to grow. To grow, you have to walk the walk and talk the talk, as they say, day by day. There are lessons and tasks that He gives you to learn. But, it just seems that sometimes my road is like the yellow brick road. I have to go through that scary forest with all the mean trees. Remember? There will be palm trees and fruit trees along the way, but unfortunately, there will be some rotten fruit on those trees. We must remember that Oz was at the end of the road, and our God in Heaven is at the end of our road.

God is here for us all. All we have to do is talk to Him. I talk to Him everywhere, knowing He listens to my every word. It is a liberating feeling.

Satan seems like he is continually on my back 24/7 anymore. The closer I try to get to God, the more oppression. God knows that, but one must persevere down the yellow brick road, never giving up. I think of Jesus and what He had to endure when He walked the earth. I am sensitive, and it upsets me when someone hurts my feelings. Someone says boo to me, and I cry. Jesus must have cried many a tear with all that was said and done to Him. He was NAILED to a cross. Hello Susan!

If I have to continue driving or walking down the winding (sometimes scary) road to see my God in Heaven, that is what I will do. I will have my ups and downs. I will have my issues. I will cry once in a while and have my bad days. However, I will have done my duty for my God and be blessed forever in the long run. Never fear. God is here! How was your day?

Is God a Mind-Meld God?
