My new life was on the sweet path of prayer, and then I became aware of the terrible struggle of the flesh. What a fight was on the path ahead. My battle of flesh is not yet won; but I have grown in many areas. I am not finished yet! The Lord continues to help me every day as I study the Word, listen to wise teachers, and heed the council of the Holy Spirit within.
The plan is not difficult and yet you will find,
You will have difficulty keeping it in mind;
For old habits are hard to break.
Some extra effort it will take.
The plan is simple as one, two, three.
It is liberating to the soul and sets from worry free.
Number one – Ask God to guide your day,
And believe He hears the words you pray.
Leave it alone – let it rest,
And know He turns it out for your best.
This step will bring peace to your life;
So you can enjoy the life offered to Christ.
Number two –Become as a living sacrifice to Him you love so much;
Because of His sacrifice you are able to perceive His love.
You are a well-pleasing sacrifice offered to die for the King
This step causes your heart to sing.
Number Three – Offer yourself that died to now live to glorify Him;
His work through you shall now begin.
This step will fulfill and cause joy to flow;
Not only to you but through you… from soul to soul.
I said it is easy but you must struggle against flesh,
To enter in God’s way to rest
You are able if you ask for God’s help; this too
Is the last step – Know your God answers you!
I John 5:14-15
And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.
