Sine qua non

What is indispensable, unavoidable and in some cases incontrovertible in my life at this moment? How do I prevent this …lights traffic anyways ethiopia

Here are ten things that cannot be removed from my view and focus at present and five things I will no longer focus on or that I must take precautions for or shift the way I view them.

 

The greens win!!

fight light traffic

  1. Seeking first the Kingdom of God (this speaks of motives) (Reach forward, press forward towards the mark, work out your salvation to officially inherit what will be yours, MM!!)
  2. Prayer (Be in continuous Prayer, in all manner of prayer and supplications in groups and in the spirit, don’t be shy to pray MM!!)
  3. Thankfulness (With every breath, with every new day, even in sorrow send up thanks, have a thankful attitude, MM!!)

    Colossians 4:2Amplified Bible (AMP)Be persistent and devoted to prayer, being alert and focused in your prayer life with an attitude of thanksgiving.

  4. Worship with my life but also with my voice (Worship is a lifestyle MM!!)
  5.  Keep aiming to glorify God in all that I do and be worthy of my calling ( This includes improving work/life goals #Purpose) (Whatever you eat or drink or say or do let it Glorify God MM!!)
  6. Meditate on his word day and night.

    Psalm 119:11Your word I have treasured and stored in my heart,That I may not sin against You. (Hide His word in your heart MM!!)

  7. Be a good Steward (Subjugate the earth MM!!)
  8. Be a disciple, a light, be the salt of the earth. (Are you glowing in the dark MM?)
  9. Express love as He intended. Be there for people! Truly! (Are you a loving MM?)
  10. Follow as he leads (Obedience) (What must you obey today MM?)

 

The ambers and avoids

lights traffic twin peaks

Essentially avoiding Joy thieves in all their forms, anything leading away from God or not glorifying him (covetousness, time wastage, gluttony, envy/jealousy, factional motives, sin etc.) or grieving the spirit.

  1. Idolatry and Lusts (trying to get something you crave without God’s help?) This is lust and I think sometimes we forget that it’s  a mental battle long before it manifests , we all face it in various ways but it often doesn’t reveal itself in a visible way but God knows the heart!!! Jer 2:13 . In the end, our desires aren’t what we ought to focus on but we are to delight in God!! Then he takes care of us!! Psalm 37:4

    Isaiah 30:1“Woe (judgment is coming) to the rebellious children,” declares the Lord,“Who carry out a plan, but not Mine,And make an alliance [by pouring out a libation], but not of My Spirit,In order to add sin to sin;

    Isaiah 44:20 That kind of man (the idolater) feeds on ashes [and is satisfied with ashes]! A deceived mind has led him astray, so that he cannot save himself, or ask, “Is this thing [that I am holding] in my right hand, not a lie?” Have your desires become your idols, MM? Any lies in your life? Idolators don’t inherit the Kingdom!

  2. Complacency in all spheres of life. Life is short. Don’t waste time MM!!
  3. Being Vulnerable alone : It can be hard to reach out sometimes but we are humans and being vulnerable is going to happen, when you know that you are experiencing vulnerability seek safety in the pack, remember your Armour and employ a strategy to guard your Achilles heel it’s also good to know that you aren’t necessarily weak you’re  dependent on God. Guard your Heart MM!!
  4. Majoring in the Minors : allowing yourself to become so preoccupied with smaller things which have no lasting or actual benefit to future progress . What are your Key Performance  Indicators for LIFE, MM?.
  5. Subtle or blatant rejections of Truth: avoid blind acceptance of information. Do you love Truth, MM?

 

{May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to you God!!}
