Rooting out the Weed

There are  mornings I awaken with joy in my soul. Then, like today, there are mornings where there’s blah in my soul. It’s not always been that way, and I do not know why it is happening these days, except in these end times, the enemy's out to get us any way he can. God is showing me that there is a root of dissatisfaction embedded deep beyond my conscious mind. This morning I’m determined to go gardening and dig that root out.

I’ve learned in this type of cultivation the wisest choice is to go the the Master Gardener. Father, You know all things and You know all things about me. Let Holy Spirit be the Rake and the Trowel. This is not an easy commitment for me, because I know Holy Spirit can be a taskmaster of challenges. The good thing is that I trust Him.

Some traps of the enemy were set way back in childhood, and we fall into them in surprise. Others were set back then, but we’ve never fully dealt with them, so they are easily available to the enemy to bring us down. Today is the day to begin to find them and delete them with Holy Spirit help.

See I speak with such confidence, but truth be told, it will take a whole lot of Spirit work and my willingness to cooperate. Yesterday I felt like no one really seemed to validate my existence. The patients were great as always, but it felt like staff could take me or leave me ~ no value. Notice the words “feel/felt” which are words of emotion and thus easily manipulated by the enemy. I can see this with my mind. So Holy Spirit, how am I to root it out? Faithfully He responds,

“Ask what is important to you? Where do you want your value to come from? Who do you want to set your value?”

My response to these wise questions is, “the Lord, my God”. So my magnificent and powerful Lord, Your valuation of me is vastly more important than anyone else's. My value to You was set when You sent Your very own Son Jesus to the cross to redeem me. Now I come into my part which is to accept that gift and set my determination to live my life in obedience to You. Since I have done this, that trap is destroyed now, because I recognize and embrace where judgement of my value lies and to Whom.

Have you fallen into a similar emotional trap? What do you do about it? More answers next blog.

Hey! Do you know if they make any plugins to assist with Search Engine Optimization? I'm trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I'm not seeing very good gains. If you know of any please share. Thanks!

In this great scheme of things you secure an A+ just for hard work. Where you lost me ended up being on your particulars. As they say, details make or break the argument.. And it could not be more true in this article. Having said that, allow me reveal to you what did work. Your authoring is certainly rather persuasive which is most likely the reason why I am making an effort in order to comment. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. 2nd, whilst I can easily notice the jumps in logic you come up with, I am not sure of how you appear to unite your points that help to make your conclusion. For now I will, no doubt subscribe to your issue but wish in the future you connect your dots much better.

My friend, thank you for visiting and making comments. On your vision of lack of the connection of points: I believe they do assume the reader has previous understanding of my belief system. So sorry that they did not connect for you. Hopefully some of the future blogs did help.But thank you for pointing that out. Your further more specific comments would help me in the future. Thanks!
