Compromise

One of the very first things God taught me was to not compromise at all. I really took this by heart and stood firm in my daily walk for a couple of years.
Then one day I realised that I was dangerously close to the edge when it comes to compromising but... I didn’t take the thought seriously. It was one tiny little thing and I had a very ‘good excuse’.

After that one specific incident I often felt the gentle conviction of the Holy Spirit, but still chose to ignore it.

Until yesterday afternoon!

God showed me, very clearly, what I was busy doing and that I was heading for a fall....I felt a cold numbness as I realised on what and where I started to compromise on.

That is a very dangerous place to be.

It (compromise) caused me to become ‘cold hearted’ towards other important things and people in my life and also most certainly towards certain areas in my spiritual life. Things I considered dearly and very important. I never realised that to compromise will cause a distance between me and God. I never realised that I would quite easily fall back on past paths... paths that I never dared to trample upon ever again. 

To compromise, no matter how small or how insignificant - will eventually cause you to become luke warm.... and eventually stone cold.... and eventually .... death.

Do not tolerate a compromising spirit at all my friend ! It's just not worth it.

Faded dreams

The dream that is in you heart.... maybe it is the very same dream that you dreamed when you were just a little girl, the one you imagined in front of the mirror, the one you spend hours in the tree, day-dreaming about... what happened to it?

Why are you not fulfilling that very same dream? Maybe it changed over the years, or a new dream found its resting place in your heart.. it doesn't really matter. What matter is why aren't you still chasing your dreams or even better yet, living your dream?

If you can still remember that dream, it's not dead yet, and there is still a very good chance that you have enough gusto within you to blow life in it!

Don't let your circumstances, whether it's your marriage, your children, your car - even the lack of having a car, your day job, your low self-esteem or even your bank balance, hold you back.

Take a chance... take action, take a step in faith, and dream again, breath it.... live it  !!!
