A Life Pleasing To The Lord


As we traverse this course of life, there are going to be times when we are going to hit roadblocks and hurdles along the way, and we should not let the things in our way to stop us from living a life that is pleasing to The Lord. There will be temptations along the way, but we should not allow those temptations to become our focus and we stop living a life pleasing to The Lord. The distractions around us should not be our excuse from being who God created us to be. The Scripture reminds us to, present our bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is our spiritual worship. I encourage you today to give yourself fully to the path that The Lord has for you. Present yourself today and every day as a willing vessel to be used by The Lord. When you are fully open to being used by God, He will open doors for you and bless you in ways that you could not even imagine. When you present yourself to God as a willing vessel you are worshipping God and giving Him glory. I give myself away to every command of God, and I am a willing vessel wanting to be used by Him. Since I am determined to be used by God, and live a life that is pleasing to Him, I have no doubt, “It’s My Year To Get My Thing From My God!”



Use me Lord for your glory and praise today. Let my actions, words, and deeds be pleasing to you as I walk this path of life. Allow me to be an extension of you today in someone’s life. In Jesus Name Amen.
