Jordan For Jesus #037 "My Delight - Joy of My Heart (All I Need Is Jesus)" by Jordan Elizabeth on 2015-02-26 10:59:41
The Bible tells us to love the Lord with all of our heart, soul, strength and mind. To love the Lord is not a feeling but rather it is a choice. It is a choice to choose Jesus instead of sin, self, and the ways of the world 24/7. It is a choice to totally and completely surrender to the Lord daily rather than anything else.
This is a choice a person should make for the Lord. To please, honor, obey, and glorify the Lord alone. It is not a choice that should be made based on people or anything else. This choice should be made based on the Lord. In the end, what a person chooses is between God and that person and no one else. So does anything else really matter anyway? The answer is no. It’s better to choose eternal joy beyond all joy over joy that runs out.
“He answered, 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind'…” (Luke 10:27)
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.” (Mark 12:30)

The Bible assures us that our faith is the evidence of an unseen world and its promises. But faith is not just belief. It is the expression of our belief before God and man.
So then, what does faith look like?
Slightly Obsessed #200: God Sees Your Despair
She was well-dressed, beautiful, and accomplished. She had just flown across the country to teach at a conference and looked fully the part: Sharp. Witty. Color-coordinated. And she nearly left with that image safely in place, until God revealed her despair.
Slightly Obsessed #199: Let No One Take Your Song
If nothing else good should happen to us except salvation, it is enough to fill our every moment with His praise.
Slightly Obsessed 198: When There is No Way Forward
I can’t tell you what the room looked like, or who was in it besides myself, my husband, our eldest son, some strangers, and the doctor in charge of the unit in which our middle son lay on life support. Kevin had been injured during a trip to Canada, and we...
