Because Jesus says so!

“Simon answered, “Master, we’ve worked hard all night and haven’t caught anything. But because you say so, I will let down the nets.””catching fish - @GodlyWoman911.comLuke 5:5 

Reminds me of times when I was younger and my foster mother would ask me to do something that I had tried a “zillion” times but it wasn’t working.

This verse also reminds me of when my laptop is giving me issues again and as much as I try and try nothing truly works! But as soon as the IT guy shows up, all of a sudden everything works perfectly!

I am picturing Peter as he is speaking to Jesus…

A shrug..

Maybe a frustrated sigh…

Rolling of the eyes!

But no matter what outward signs he may have shown, there was a spirit of obedience to just try again…

What is God calling you to do? What have you been trying to do so much on your own and it isn’t working?

Take some time now to stop and pray. Seek Christ guidance and call on HIM to grant you wisdom and understanding for your challenges, concerns, opportunities or journey ahead.

Food for thought: Life only gets easier when you allow Christ to be first in all things. Let him guide you.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, creator of all things, glory, honor and praise be to your name. In our earthly wisdom we cry out to be in control of our lives and when it gets out of control we get upset and many times we curse you Lord. Forgive us. Your word instructs us to seek you first in all things. Forgive us the idols that we have in our lives that we put first before coming to your throne. God of grace and mercy, thank you for your love and forgiveness. May we be guided by your light and love and filled with your spirit of wisdom and understanding. In Jesus name. Amen

May God’s mercy, grace and love be with you.

I became a Christian at a young age and baptized at the age of 13. My journey has been bittersweet. A majority of my life I have been a Christian. But not a Godly Woman. After many failures, tears and tribulation I realized that something in my Christian life had to change. No longer can I profess that I am a Christian but don’t show daily that Christ lives in me! No longer can I claim that I am HIS child when my thoughts, actions and deeds were not overflowing with HIS love. No longer could I live the way I was living and not seek him daily in prayer, scripture and worship. As the Lord blessed me with that knowledge I felt him also calling me to write my journey and share my thoughts, learning and mistakes with others. Hence the reason for 911. Not only was it a crises in my life to become a Godly Woman but as I delved into scripture to understand how to be Godly, I realized that we are living in crazy world where the desire to be Godly was no longer important. Many boast that they are a Christian and weekly attend Church, but lack the Godly qualities that Christ seeks in ALL of his followers. My deepest desire is to serve Christ faithfully, obey HIM joyfully, trust HIM always, seek HIM eternally and become his close friend so that I can share in his truth and knowledge. I pray that this blog blesses you and provide you with the strength, courage and wisdom to be a Godly Man or Woman.
