“Seek the LORD while he may be found; call on him while he is near. Let the wicked forsake his way and the evil man his thoughts. Let him turn to the LORD, and he will have mercy on him, and to our God, for he will freely pardon. ‘For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,’ declares the LORD. ‘As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.’”
Isaiah 55:6-9

When I used to do things that I thought would bring me pleasure, the gratification was always short lived. I had to find something else that would bring me enjoyment.

I never considered that I had very little self-respect and didn’t give much thought about the Lord.

When I started following Jesus I found that my gratefulness for what He did for me at Calvary also brought a tremendous respect and reverence for Him and my Heavenly Father. I began to place value on things I had previously regarded as insignificant. The more I engaged in doing new activities that were much more rewarding, the fruition of the effort I made to do them brought lasting satisfaction.

Now, by trying to honor Him in everything I do I am experiencing His peace, contentment and joy in much greater abundance than ever before. I pray that He will give me more of His wisdom so that I will be able to see life increasingly more from His perspective.
