Great service today! The spirit of God was so full ♥ We didn’t even have any preaching, the spirit of God just took over. And two of the visitors got really touched :) God can and will fill them with the holyghost if they just reach for it ! I mean they were so close . Ahh, I hope they come back tonight.
I was praying for them! I can see salvation! ~Acts 2:38
God’s wants the Real Us, Not us caked in make up.
Thought I’d share this awesome piece with you today since this is something that I used to deal with in the past and I know that most of us still struggle with this notion.
We all know that God is super perfect. Right? Well if you didn’t know that- He is! He is the definition of perfection and naturally the idea is just so overwhelming and hard for us to handle. Why? Because deep inside we feel that we aren’t perfect. We know that we are a mess and as a result we get this idea that we are way out of God’s league. We feel like we are better off sitting with the uncool and unpopular folks whilst God sits at the cool table. We feel like we can never measure up to the perfection that He has. We feel that if we try to approach God, He would either - get mad at us for being the imperfect beings we are, He would ignore us because we aren’t worth it since we can’t measure up to His standards and more. But I want to tell you today that these notions are so wrong and absolutely deceiving.
Because the God that I know in the Bible is super merciful and super awesome. Yes! He loves us all just as we are with all of our messes and imperfections. He wants to walk right into our messy lives and transform us into the Godly individual that He desires in us.
God doesn’t want us to cake ourselves with make up and whatnot to hide our true selves and identity. And even if we do so, He knows the real us so much so that He knows the count of the hairs on each of our heads. But the point is that God doesn’t want us to make an act and show Him that we are kinda sorta perfect people. No! God wants the messed up and the ruined person that we are. Why? Because that’s how much He loves us and He loves us so dearly.
Are you that kind of person who feels that you aren’t perfect enough for God? Do you feel that you have to put on an act just so that you can approach your Father who loves you very much? Well then today I want to tell and remind you that God loves you the way you are so come to Him the broken and ruined person you are. God will bring all that is ruined within you back to life and make you rise from the ashes and make a whole beautiful new creation out of you.
He is Waiting. He is waiting now and He will be waiting for you always because He loves you.
I hope you are inspired today to seek God in the midst off all of your imperfection because it is only through Him that we are made complete. Happy Thursday everyone. Be kind to one another and God Bless You All.

I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour. - Isaiah 43:11
If “tongues have ceased,” then the Baptism of the Holy Ghost has ceased, and the Church has ceased. Pentecostalism IS the Church of Acts 2.
I’ve learned many things in my short years that I have been living on earth. And one thing that I am most fortunate, that I adore, is to have learned who Jesus Christ is. Thank you God for this truth. Thank you.
