Excuses, excuses: validation or not?

Confession time here…tiredness leads to stress for me. They are not a good combo. Over the years, by God’s grace, it is something both learned and to be aware of.

I don’t know about you, but for us, life is full. A good kind of full, but nevertheless, full. Truly, God is good; that goodness is not our right, but a gift graciously given to us by God to His children.

God never promised pain-free or mountaintop-highs.

In all our blessings, opportunities, trials, and testings, honestly, we get tired; sometimes utterly exhausted.

Without Christ, our attitude of choice becomes unChrist-like, doesn’t it?

Tiredness (for me stress must be added to this statement) gives us no right, no authority, no excuse to act, live, speak, or think carnally. None! 

Ouch! 

You will find no Scripture verse that gives the license to walk flesh-like while claiming Christ regardless of your weakness.

A question we could ask ourselves is this: “Am I living in the flesh or the Spirit right now?” 

This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the list of the flesh. For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that we cannot do the things that ye would. But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law…and they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit” Galatians 5:16-25.

In Christ I am SHE {Saved. Hopeful. Empowered.}
