Another Truth Learned – Without Him I Can Do Nothing – by Angela of 2fools4Christ

Even being born again and a follower of Jesus Christ and loving Him – if I am not in Him, in fellowship with Him, putting Him first and keeping my mind stayed on Him – if I am not led by the Holy Spirit and Spirit filled – I can do nothing.

Anything I’ve ever tried to do my way or without His leadership or without His Spirit – has failed, fell flat, was not enough, fell short…

On my own, in my own strength, in my own timing, in my own talents I am useless…

But in the Father’s hands, filled with His Spirit, in the name and authority of Jesus, sharing the love of Jesus Christ and the gospel with others – then He is glorified and I get to share in His joy and peace! Amazing and more!

Even getting out of bed and cleaning, cooking, disciplining & playing with my children –
even every little every day type of thing that I need or want to do –
for maximum success, impact, joy, eternal reward, ease of doing so –
I need Jesus every hour.

I believe that is why we are told to pray without ceasing
to abide in the vine, as we are the branch and He is the vine
all of our sustenance comes from Jesus
all good fruits of the Spirit come from being filled by the Spirit
I get too distracted some days but each day is sweeter
when I begin the day with Him and remember Him all day in every task

Oh, LORD, help me remember to remember you every moment just like you are right here in the room with me and by my side every minute. You are in me and I am in You and that should be easy to remember and to realize. I pray that distractions are gone in Jesus’ name. I pray, LORD, that You gently remind me that You will never leave me nor forsake me and that goes for bad times, good times and all the dull times in between where life happens that we take for granted. LORD, take my life and let it be all for You. May You and You alone be glorified in my life, LORD, and in the lives of my family. We love you, LORD, and we acknowledge our need for You. We thank You that You love us and that You transform us with Your power and might. May we walk along the Everlasting Way with You in Your strength and in the spiritual armor that You have provided and all of the equipping that You have done. Thank You, LORD. I pray in the name of Jesus, Amen.

This blog is for anyone who wants to know more about Jesus and His love and how faith in Him plays out in real life application. Hello, we are Jerry and Angela and we are two fools for Christ. We have decided to make our lives totally surrendered to Jesus in response to His love and His gift of salvation. We are in our early 40′s and we have two children together and [Angela has] an older daughter that is now an adult. We have been married to each other for going on ten years. We surrendered our lives to the Lord together in 2010 and have been growing in that relationship with Him and each other since that time. We both accepted salvation and made professions of faith earlier in our lives, but did not make Him Lord and Savior until 2010. At that time we realized that trying to walk in our own strength and our own ways was useless and empty and had led us to another rock bottom experience. We humbly turned our lives over to Jesus and have been seeking Him with all that we are ever since. That does not mean that we have become perfect. That does not mean that we have not sinned again. That does not mean that we have not had trouble or trials or storms since that time. What this means is that we are growing, we are learning, we are becoming more loving and compassionate and forgiving. We want to share our faith with our readers. We want to share our growth process and transformation with you. We wish to encourage you and lift you.
