Separation From God

Lately I've been thinking about the things that can cause me to separate from the Lord little by little..Here's a List i came up with
  1. Worrying
  2. Envy
  3. Jealousy
  4. Stealing
  5. Swearing
  6. Shady business deals
  7. Sexual indiscretions
  8. Divorce
  9. Conflicts with your partner
  10. Abortion
  11. Busy schedules
  12. Financial Troubles
  13. Alcohol and Drug addiction
  14. Food addiction
  15. Excessive Internet or TV usage
  16. Lying

I know there are many more things i can add to this list but i am going to keep it at that for now. Sin creates a sense of estrangement from God, we have Adam and Even as a perfect example of how sin separated them from God. I've been there. I've fallen into sin so hard that i found my self walking around the desert over and over all the while digging a hole to hide myself from the shame and guilt i felt for causing my father pain through disobedience. Exactly what the devil wants, to keep us away from God always. His future is set for him, God already defeated him and his desire is to take all humanity to hell with him by using different avenues to separate us little by little from God. We need to examine our lives and make a list of all the things that can separate us from GOD, scratch off the ones that apply to our lives, enter in prayer so that our Lord help us get rid of all these sin and bring us right to His precense forever.

hi jackie :) i am a lurker from BF and I wanted to drop by and say that I support you and your beliefs and opinions. You were catching a lot of heat from people who are complaining about you being too opinionated, when that is exactly what they are doing by chastising you. Hang in there- there are a lot of readers who have your back (but don't post about it to keep the meanies from continuing their tirades!). Take care!

Will you please pray for a couple of people in my church (including me). We have a muslim man that is visiting our church for a few weeks. He is down on business, such a sweet man. He's 30 yrs old, and has seen the way we have praised Jesus. He came EXTREMELY interested in "who this Jesus is". so we have been witnessing to him. We hope to lead him to Christ soon! Just please pray that he will see who the REAL GOD is! I would very much appreciate it!

So apparently you don't like Muslims expressing their beliefs?

Great post, Jackie. I think some of the things on my list would be....

-not being able to forgive quickly
-using media inappropriately
-speaking to my kids in a way that is less than respectful

Okay, I'll go and finish my list now!
