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)
When we feel the most lost may be the very moment we discover that someone is searching for us.

Two secular scientists recently stumbled upon evidence challenging their evolutionary assumptions. Do we subconsciously doubt God's power and quietly live a similar Darwinian existence? Are we ready to be challenged to believe in His power to intervene in our lives?
Slightly Obsessed #229: When Pain Is a Good Thing
The pain takes us down and drives us to our knees. We long for relief, for a way out. But in the secret place of suffering, we discover that pain is our friend.
Slightly Obsessed #228: The God of the Grateful
My world had just fallen into a pit. We had a young daughter, four other children, and no insurance. I was so sick that I didn’t even know if I could get to the doctor for tests. Despair rolled over us in waves.
Then God spoke.
Slightly Obsessed #227: Release the Beautiful
As we smiled at the people we met on our walk I wondered at the social custom that requires face-to-face congeniality on a bike path among strangers who would soon be in our respective cars fighting over a lane change. It’s easier to be mad at people when we can’t see their faces.
Slightly Obsessed #226: Triune
In its most basic element, our very existence mirrors His Godhead in trinity. Each person enters time and space as three: body, soul, and spirit.
