"Walking in the way and the love of the Lord"
“...Seek me and live.”
(Amos 5:4, NIV)
Joel Osteen is such an uplifting pastor. He is always preaching about the gifts and graces that Our Lord has in store for us. All we have to do is claim those gifts and graces in His name!! I have heard some people say that don't agree with his preaching, because there is crosses we must carry. I don't agree, I believe Joel Osteen is helping spread the message of hope and love. Will we have crosses to carry? Yes of course we will. But we should all strive to carry that cross with acceptance and not to fall into self pity.
Matthew 10:38 And whoever does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me.
Is it easy? Of course not. But that is why we seek Him. Because only with Him will we have abundant life. Once we accept that cross, pick it up and ask Our Lord to help us in carrying it, it is in that moment that you will find peace. In that moment you will find joy! I do believe that Our Lord wants us to feel peace and joy here in this world. He doesn't want us walking around feeling sorry for ourselves. He wants us to experience abundant life. He wants us dancing! He wants us to share His love with everyone we encounter! He wants every part of our life to shine! (even while we carry that cross)
As Joel Osteen, said "He wants your relationships to be vibrant and alive. He wants your dreams to be alive. He wants your body, heart and mind to be alive and full of vitality. God is the source of all life, and when you seek Him, you will find Him, and the result will be everlasting life."
So pick up that cross and smile. Smile because you know that God has got you and is guiding you every step of the way. Seek God and allow him to guide you. Allow him to love you. Forgive yourself or others and let go! Have hope, have faith, and live your life to the fullest! Dream big! Claim that dream with Our Lord! Remember our biggest dream is probably but a little seed to Our Lord. Let Him give you this abundant life. Enjoy every moment and share this newfound joy with others!
Here is a little prayer by Joel Osteen, “Father, thank You for sending Your Son, Jesus, so that I can have abundant life, both now and in eternity. I humbly come before You, giving You all that I am. I ask for Your hand of blessing and guidance in everything I do. In Jesus’ name. Amen.”
