(This was supposed to be written two days ago.)
So a few nights ago I got fairly ticked and wrote a post. Majority Persecution. If you haven’t read it yet, you will be lost. Go read it.
That night I went to bed and read my chick lit book and did my usual 1AM routine… Then I did something I haven’t done in a while(Shame on me a million times over).
I picked up my bible.
Yes yes. Shame on me.
I opened up to…. James? Because I felt like that was a good place to read… mmhm, yeah gurl.
I read the first chapter…. followed a cross reference. Came back to the original verse to followw a new cross reference. Followed another cross reference from there and SHAZAM!
“If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you.”
I must be doing something right then. Cuz the world sure hates me. And according to this verse it’s because I belong to Jesus. It must show. I’m taking this as a compliment. Definitely a compliment.
I love God. I love when He shows me verses that lift the burdens on my heart. I love it when He takes me in his arms and claims me as His. I don’t know what else to say, but this is proof to me that God is real. This stuff doesn’t happen coincidentally.
