Thirsty Thursday - Give it ALL to God!

Since I have been on a kick about goals, I thought I really should do a short devotion on it! If you are new here, please refer back to my original post on Thirsty Thursday. This way you will understand what I am trying to do.

Galatians 3:3 says "Are you so foolish? After beginning with the Spirit, are you now trying to attain your goal by human effort?"

WOW! We are all guilty of that. Especially being a woman, giving control over is hard! Although I do try to remember to give it all to God to handle and help! I am human so therefore I have been guilty of thinking I can do it on my own! And what a tragedy it ends up being when I don't let God do it! My #1 goal with this blog is to reach out to others and I refuse to control it, I will let God do His thing! I know that He will help with this as long as I keep that #1 goal first!

Romans 8:6 says "...but the mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace."

Thank you God! I can tell you that I could use that kind of life and peace 24/7! How about you? We are so busy with our lives and the earthly things that we forget that we can have this. God promises us right there in Romans! If we don't have this, it's our own fault! Give it to Him!

Lets pray...

Dear Lord, please forgive us for trying to do it all on our own! We need your help with ALL we do including the main goal we should all have, getting to Heaven to see You! Remind us always that we can not do this alone, no matter what it is! Give us the Spirit to do all things so that we can have the life and peace you promise!! In Jesus name we pray. AMEN!

What do these verses mean to you? You may post it on your own blog (but please remember to link back to us) or you can post it as a comment. Please do so. Reading God's word and talking about what it means to you is good for us all!!


  1. OH how he's shown me what peace is and isn't!! I thought I had peace under control!! LOL We can't do anything without the Lord.

    My devotion on May 23 was the BEST and it was an eye opener for me...I need to write a blog about that...anyway. Some of it reads, " It is not only wrong to worry, it is infidelity, because worrying means that we do not think that God can look after the practical details of our lives...What did Jesus say would choke the word He puts in? The devil? NO, the cares of this world. It is the little worries always....the great word of Jesus to His disciples is abandon." We must abandon all worldly things, we must lean completely on Him and let him guide us where we need to go. AND we need to pay attention to even the little stuff :)

  2. Well, what I mean about the little stuff is don't ignore those times that you lose your temper or the times that you lose your peace because your son is afraid of the baseball and is stepping out of the box, so he's striking out when there's already two out and a runner on third...that's where I was going wrong. I had peace with the no job or money thing but I didn't with something little like you know who stepping out of the you know what because he's so afraid :) Sorry, I had to explain myself better.

  3. LOL... thanks for sharing! We really did miss out with this weeks time together,didn't we?!

  4. Yes we did. NO MORE NO REUNION GROUP TUESDAYS!!!! I really missed it.

  5. What an awesome devotion!! Are you writing to me or are there others out there? :) That hit home!!! I'm linking to this one...

  6. You are too funny! Thanks Marci!!
