Hello everyone! Before anything else, I just want to greet you all a Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year! 🙂
I know… I know … I have not been updating my blog site for the past four months ( or so .. I apologize .. and for this, I want to make it up to you all lol 🙂 Here is my latest blog… ka -ching 😀 ) but now I am here! I do hope that you are having a great time during this holiday season!
What I want to share for you as I end my blogging for this year is about — Submissive Obedience — big word! 🙂 You see, it takes practice to submit and obey all at the same time… and nobody says that it will be as easy as eating your favorite chocolates and then whoala… you are happy! 🙂 Submission just like what the Bible says
Submitting to one another out of reverence for Christ. – Ephesians 5:21 ESV — it is a commandment of God so therefore, our hearts must be willing to obey Him.
In marriage for example, my husband and I have a lot of ups and downs – we do have some misunderstandings, and sometimes it’s hard for me to submit but then again, God has always reminded me that my husbands is not my opponent, but instead, he is my team mate — and as a team, we should work as one, body, mind and soul. It is easier said than done I know, especially if you’re husband has a high belief attitude lols. but thank God for the grace of God that I can see the beauty of submission. In terms if obedience, I admit that I am hard headed and I must always be reminded that it is more brave to listen up and don’t talk too much about the problems, instead find solution to it. God is still working on me and on us — as a married couple, we are not perfect — in fact we don’t even come close near to perfect — but we praise God for the learning, correction, revelation, joy, grace, love, hope and faith that He has given us for this year!
Obedience is just like what the Bible says:
Teach me to do your will, for you are my God! Let your good Spirit lead me on level ground! – Psalm 143:10 ESV
I pray this for all of us that we may have a heart to follow His leading always. As we end this year 2016, let’s move forward to a new year which is 2017, and have a heart of obedience to God. You may have a lot of failures, heartaches, breakthroughs, or even answered prayers this year, and sometimes you might caught yourself asking … ” have I obeyed you God? In the way that You desire me to obey you? Or I have chose my own path? Your obedience to Him is not measured by all the YES” and AMEN” or the BIG BREAKTHROUGHS that came your way but it’s the overall seasons that you have experienced. It’s the fruit of the Holy Spirit that was given to you, that enables you to experience the unspeakable joy in your heart!
Anyway, have a happy 2017 my dear readers! Thank you for taking time to read my blogs and hoping that I am able to share a encouragement, reminder, smile or happiness in your heart as I allow you to have a sneak peak in my life through this. May God shine above anything and anyone in our lives.
See you next year!
Love, Mrs. Piza 🙂
