Sanctify Me


Every so often, I realize I've been running in my own strength and how tired I am and I just fall into Jesus' arms.

Tonight, I can tell that God has been trying to capture my heart to him the past few days and I have to admit that I don't know why I try to do it all in my own strength when Jesus is all I ever need.

Psalm 25: 14 - 15 says "The friendship of the LORD is for those who fear him, and he makes known to them his covenant. My eyes are ever toward the LORD, for he will pluck my feet out of the net." 

My feet get all caught up in Vanessa-crap and I need Jesus to pluck them out. I'm so grateful that he is softening my heart towards him.

This past Sunday, our pastor was talking about Sanctification and preaching from John 17. At one point, he said, "God doesn't relent in his desire to sanctify us."

Even when we rarely even put in our share of the relationship, God is there putting in 100%. God is constantly taking us back to himself, because it is there that we find true rest for our souls under the shadow of his wings.

Jesus said, "Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth." John 17:17 

I've been thinking about how God wants to sanctify us, which means to set apart for service, and how that applies to my life daily.

As a mom, I am constantly serving others. Taking care of the baby, taking care of the husband, taking care of the dog, taking care of the house, the laundry, the dishes, the _______ x 100. It's tiring.

But God gives me His strength and in Him I find rest for my soul.

And that is all that matters.
