Growing Pains, Words of my Heart by A Texas Artist Laurie Pace

Growing Pains

Many people do not follow God.
Is it commitment issues?
Are they worried that God will expect more of them than they can give?

Roses and flowers He created for our joy.

God does ask for obedience.

Obedience actually frees you from responsibilities to enjoy His blessings.

His blessings include peace, joy, and a fulfilled life.
His blessings are seen in the world around us in His creative powers and in those that follow Him.

He does not always answer those desperate last minute pleas when you need something fixed.  He does more than rigging short term fixes.  He wants to 'grow you' into His grace and love so that you can find His simple abundance.

It may take some growing pains .. letting go and letting God is difficult. Obeying God seems really hard because we always want things to work our way. 

He offers an abundant life.

Words of my Heart,

"He came to serve, not to be served." Mark 10:45
