This is a test of the inner soul system!
Kinda reminds me of when the weather alert system message comes on doesn’t it?
Just how the weather is on alert for bad weather our inner should be reaching a place the more I practice using the tools my Pastor Juanita Gibbs has been teaching me to know when things are on approach to arise.
I was in my prayer time this morning and found that I spent longer than usual in that time with God.
Ohhh did I find out later as to why. Here in the south (North Carolina) it is unusually cold. I think this is the coldest its been in a very long time. The job where I work there was no gas for heat, pipes were frozen. Being as we are a telecommunicationd company the systems were down until 11:30am.
Needless to say with no heat and no restroom facility it wasn’t the normal of a day. I could feel the anxiety rising slowly with each call about why stiff wasn’t working. Finally got the word to close the office to discover my cell phone had been disconnected, so had to call and see what was going on with my carrier.
Had I not spent that extra time with God would I have been so aware of my anxiety rising? Probably not! I could have walked out a soulish way in the chaos.
My spirit was already aware that I needed that time as to why my time in communion was extended. The spirit is always willing, my soul not so much , the more it submits to the spirit as Pastor teaches that life by the spirt will grow.
Is it easy to live by spirit over my soulish ways? No!! But the more I use the tools given to me, the more i cam shift how I live out life from my spirit more than my soul.
This is my work to do to practice the wisdom shared with me to apply it yo my life. Not just in merr word alone, but in action also. Faith without works is dead. For it to be alive I must in faith use the tools to be effective.
