Have I Become Complacent?

According to the dictionary, complacency is defined as self-satisfaction especially when accompanied by unawareness of actual dangers or deficiencies

Complacency in a Christian’s life is dangerous. We fall into a routine where we ignore God, ignore His gentle whispers, and forget who He is and what He can do for us.

All we have to do is place our complete attention and focus on HIM! Not ourselves…HIM!

I definitely do not want to forget who the Lord is. I don’t want to forget His kindness, gentleness, and goodness. I don’t want to forget anything about Christ.

Yet sometimes I fall short. Okay, scratch that. I don’t sometimes fall short. I DO fall short. A LOT!

Lately, I’ve been in the danger zone of complacency. I find myself leaning into the world rather than leaning on Christ.

I find myself just going through the motions.

I don’t want this. I don’t want to just go through the motions as a Christian. You know…going to church, singing the songs, reading my Bible. I want to WANT Christ. I don’t want to make it a routine where I do these things without it changing my life.

I don’t wanna go through the motions

I don’t wanna go one more day

Without Your all consuming passion inside of me

I don’t wanna spend my whole life asking

What if I had given everything

Instead of going through the motions?

Matthew West, “The Motions”

James 4:17 says, “Remember it is a sin to know what you ought to do and then not do it.”

Prayers Please

Hey y’all. Please pray for me. I was in a car accident yesterday and was t-boned. I’m fine, I’m okay. I’m just really sore and having fibromyalgia doesn’t help.

Also, I had a spinal tap today to rule out some health issues so my head is hurting a little. The procedure went well though and I should be hearing back in a couple of days

Verse of the Day-Matthew 3:8

I came across this verse during my devotions this morning and it’s so crazy how I’ve read this verse over and over before but never really thought about its meaning until today.

Prove by the way you live that you have repented of your sins and turned to God

Matthew 3:8, NLT

If we’re going to be followers of Christ we must show it in our actions and words. We need others to see Jesus in us. How else are they going to come to know Christ?

If they see us acting no different than the world they are just going to assume that’s how we’re supposed to live. We become hypocrites.

We must be a light to the world so that the world sees Jesus.

You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden

Matthew 5:14, NLT

Covid Caught Me

Hey guys,

Well, it took two and a half years but Covid caught up with me. I’m feeling so much better than last week but I still have some lingering effects. I went back to work today but had to leave early because the weakness and fatigue were overpowering me.

My mom now has Covid, unfortunately. Actually, I think we both came down with it around the same time only hers took a little more time to show symptoms.

I hope to start blogging more consistently, but we’ll see how it goes.

So that’s been my last couple of weeks.

How are you all?
