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)
A few short moments taken to restore a woman to health had kept Jesus from the bedside of a girl who lay dying. Messengers arrived with the news that Jairus’ little daughter was dead, striking fear in his heart as they destroyed the hope to which he clung.

Slightly Obsessed #208: Scorched by Trial
In the gray dawn of another day, I am spent. I can pray no more. There are no more words I can say, no entreaty with which to reach my Master. As the night shadows fade before the rising sun, I open my Bible. In the space between darkness and light, I need to hear His voice.

Slightly Obsessed #206: A Portrait of Faith: Willing to Learn
Sometimes it’s hard to discern God's voice above the noise in our head and around us. The Bible encourages us to keep listening and keeping trying, because like anything else, we are trained by practice.
Slightly Obsessed #205: A Portrait of Faith: The Courage to Trust
Trust is a gift we give someone who has earned the right to ask for it. It’s the bond between two people who have a history between them. Trust is hard-won and easily lost.
