THE LOVE OF GOD IS ABUNDANT AND UNCONDITIONAL. OUR TRANSITION FROM WORLDLY TO SPIRITUAL IS NO MAGIC WAND PROCESS. IT IS STEP BY STEP, DAY BY DAY, ETC... THE DISCIPLINE COMES IN TIME AND WORKS ALONG WITH OUR PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD. HIS LOVE AND HIS UNDERSTANDING IS UNFALTERING AND LIMITLESS. HE LOOKS INTO OUR HEARTS. BUT TO LOVE HIM IS TO WALK WITH LOVE. WE NEED TO RENEW OUR MINDS FROM THE OLD WAYS OF THINKING. FROM THE WORLDLY WAYS OF THINKING. TO SUBMIT OUR WILL TO HIS WILL. HANG IN THERE. IT'S NOT EASY...BUT IT IS WELL WORTH THE WALK.
GOD BLESS!

THE THOUGHTS WITHIN OUR MINDS CAN
LEAD US INTO RIGHTEOUSNESS
BUT THOUGHTS CAN ALSO LEAD US INTO SIN
THE CRAVINGS AND DESIRES, THAT ARE
ROOTED IN OUR FLESH
DON'T DISAPPEAR BECAUSE WE'RE BORN AGAIN
OUR MINDS MUST BE RE-NEWED
TO BE ESTABLISHED, IN THE "WORD"
AND DISCIPLINED TO KEEP THE FLESH DENIED
A DISCIPLINE THAT COMES WITH TIME
AND FELLOWSHIP WITH JESUS
WHO TEACHES SIN, MUST NOT BE GRATIFIED

BEING SAVED MAY PLACE OUR NAMES
WITHIN THE "BOOK OF LIFE"
BUT WE MUST CLOSELY GUARD OUR ATTITUDE
'CAUSE GOD STILL WATCHES HOW WE ACT, AND
SPEAK AND THINK, AND DRESS
THE SPIRIT AND THE FLESH, WILL ALWAYS FEUD
THE ENEMY...PLANS HIS ATTACK
TO COME WITHIN OUR WEAKNESS
THE WEAKNESS IN OUR CHARACTER...OR MIND
SO WHEN YOU'RE PRONE TO WRONGFUL THOUGHTS
WHICH LEAD TO SINFUL, WAYS
JUST KNOW THAT "satan", WON'T BE FAR, BEHIND

WHEN WE ARE SAVED, WE "DIE TO SIN"
BUT SIN ITSELF...WON'T DIE
WE LEAVE ITS "HOME", AND DWELL NOT...ANY LONGER
THE PROCESS MAY BE SLOW, BUT,
BE DETERMINED...TO SUCCEED
AND BIT BY BIT, YOUR DISCIPLINE, GETS STRONGER
OUR FATHER WANTS TO BLESS YOUR LIFE
RELEASE YOU...FROM YOUR BONDAGE
OBEY WHAT'S FOUND IN, JOSHUA, ONE..VERSE-EIGHT
HE'LL GIVE YOU ALL YOU ASK OF HIM
AND GIVE.....ABUNDANTLY!
BE STRONG AND BE COURAGEOUS...WHILE YOU WAIT
AMEN
