Do not be so hard on yourself, have you Sprouted Angel Wings?

Updated on September 1, 2011

Sweet Jesus

I am going to ask you a simple question. Do you have a tendency to be critical of yourself or put yourself down? Do you have a tendency to take yourself to serious? If you can answer yes, then please raise your right hand? Thank you. I raised my right hand. If you raised your hand guess what ? Regardless, God understands and loves you . He realizes we have not sprouted Angel wings. He knows what we are going to be when we grow up. If you did not raise your hand that is a big 'Glory to God' because 'HE' did not come up with the idea to pounce on yourself. We are all born with a purpose and plan Genesis 2:2. Many choose not to believe or decide to take their own walk. That is a sad reality and truth. Gods children cannot be perfected without trials. When a gem is perfected it has to go though a process of friction. We are Gods gems and 'He' loves us more then our human understanding.

If you have a tendency to put yourself down, stop with it. The enemy wants you to incubate the seed in your mind. It is a lie from the enemy. So you can be rid of it at any time now. Yes, we are human and it is OK to be willing to look at our faults but God made no one unimportant. We have the power to rid the bad seed or visions that can distract us from spiritual goals. God gave us power over our mind and over the enemy. God will intercede for us. If your child missed a score at a Basketball game are you going to beat him or her up possibly more then he or she might be doing? I think not. We just need to call on HIM. We can choose who to believe. His unchanging hand is always there.

God is the DIVINE architect. It is a process to build and construct and expand to completion. Children we get to discover the plan for our lives. Children of GOD have a commission to share the Good news of salvation and hope in the Lord.Then like a big treasure hunt we get to discover treasures along the way that is joy unspeakable and lead us to our divine purpose in Christ. Hint, if you share the good news that is a divine purpose. Keep going as my precious bro jmm shares. Keep going.

When you have a relationship with a person it grows in understanding and love.Well, when we walk with GOD the relationship grows deeper and that brings more understanding, love and happiness to your life. I know this, because I am living it. I have made many errors and I thank God he knows I do not have angel wings. I can recognize my faults and be willing to work on them. To put myself down is not from GOD.

SO I had a light bulb moment. Divinely speaking a revelation or an awakening. The light went on. I know that I know, and have for sometime, my purpose for Gods Glory. It has brought me joy complete and full like no other. Since it is Gods plan for me I do have this desire to move on it and quickly . I could not get with it last week. I must of had fifty different topics or ideas that popped into my head. Then the thought move on your Novel came to me. Ever have the racing mind? Nothng was coming together. I could not get anything accomplished. The old tapes starte playing.

One morning in meditation it came to me to you can stop with it anytime now. The Holy Spirit reminded me I am being 'refined'. The plan is unfolding and has been unfolding in God's perfect timing and will. I am a student in life. Many teachers will cross our path. Many that read this now have shown me many things. Many have taught me how to recover from errors or heartache, in Christ. They have shared scripture or a part of their testimony that has taught me. I kinda like this school more then any I have gone too. I do not have to go to the principle or get a pink slip. I am not getting reprimanded or scolded or placed in a corner. I am OK, as I am. I am a work in progress. I know the vision placed on my heart, but I do not know the outcome. I was trying to get to the outcome and in Gods perfect timing it will come to pass. I mentioned to God;' I am no spring chicken I need to be moving on this plan' It is a very good thing that God has a sense of humor, he is amazing. I can vision HIS smile. He tells me in HIS word. 'Do not be worried or afraid, does it add one more day to your life? Only I can hand over my peace of mind and joy. If I am all over the place trying to 'get it done' what am I missing? The joy of the moment. I am focusing on future and missing the wonderous,majestic fragrance in the rose. I am taking control and not letting IAM direct my path. Then I get all hard on myself because I know better or woe is me. God is not hard on me, I am hard on me.

I have had this lesson before, many times. It is all good. Not because I am all good but because our LORD is all knowing and ALL good. He knows the Angel Wings have not sprouted. He did not move HIS treasure chest of mercy, goodness, kindness, meekness, humility, long-suffering, peace and love. He knows HIS plan and I do not need to 'get it'. He may have one person that is sent for divine wisdom. I do not need to be troubled or beat myself up because I think I am not moving fast enough. It is a work in progress. Glory Be to GOD. Ever heard the phrase, 'I take one step forward, then one step backwards? I do not like that phrase. It may appear like that but in Gods world it is ALL good. He tells us, 'He can turn ALL things for good for those that love HIM'. He knows my excitement and glee in HIS vision for me. I am not some Angel that sprouted wings because I am on a divine plan. I live a DIVINE plan because I am a Child of the most high God. Children of GOD we are a DIVINE plan. He wrote it, down for us in HIS letter to us. It is available to anyone by choice. There is only one perfect. The Father in Heaven. I can, 'press on toward the race' I do not need to finish it today. Words of widsom from our Father spoke though Paul. (2 Timothy)

Wings Of An Angel

A Divine Work

A divine work is in progress for God's Children. Many may wonder around through life trying to find their identity in Christ. Continue to seek a closer relationship with the creator. No one against us can prosper. He will lead and guide and preserve us and his purpose will be made so clear there will be no doubt. He will unlock the hidden treasures. Hold on to the truth Jesus Christ has laid out before us and that you have found in HIM. He is the Lord our God that loves us more then anyone can comprehend or measure. Keep seeking, keep walking with him. More will be revealed.

When one door closes it is because one is opening or you may be in it at this moment. Any confusion or seed of doubt or fruit that is darkness can be tossed aside any time now. ( Isaiah 43:2 ) The HOLY SPIRIT enables us to overcome whomever or whatever challenge may come near his Children. Keep planting seeds for Christ. Give and give some more. We do reap what we so. When we release from our hands to God; our offerings, He releases from Heaven a Harvest of Blessings. Believe in your future. The Fathers goal for us is to have unspeakable joy, that is HIS GLORY.

DO the next right thing and Give God the Glory. Let it be known. Times in the 'world' are not getting easier. Many are in search of something to hold onto for hope and a future. Tell them truth about the one living GOD who died for them. The Spirit will prepare their hearts and you will know if it is the time. DO not be in doubt or fear as I can do and have done. When our walk with the Lord is magnified the enemy knows. He will try to get to the vulnerable part of us.Guess what? The good news is the devil is out of here. He is done in, defeated! DOOMED to hell. Gods love is so great HE took on the evil one for us on, 'The Cross at Calvary'. There is no limit in the treasure chest. Dig in. When you fall GOD knows you do not have angel wings. He will help to get you up and going, and turn it ALL for HIS Good and HIS Glory.

I am amazed at any leftover moments of a bad experience that have come to me of late. The prompting of the Holy Spirit leads and instructs me in ways to reedeem myself of mistakes I have made. When I cooperate and listen to the Holy Spirit all sorts of miracle Blessings come to me. The mind will grow any seed I allow into it good or bad. Palm 101:23 says, rid your mind of bad thoughts by replacing them with good thoughts. Praise the Lord!!

Below; Sarah will sing to your soul. FYI she is the original of the song. Please enjoy.

Written in Love,

      Dear Skye you have it all here, I can see that your love for our Lord is overflowing, you have given so much love others are being blessed by what we all read here.

      as we are not perfect not while we are here anyway, I know that as we walk the path which Jesus made for us, yes we will encounter many things along the way, BUT as we pass each problem we do know that there is light still shinning for us.

      What a great God we have that He calls us HIS children.

      God loves you

      Skye2day, I love your positive preaching of God’s love. Sometimes we feel totally lost, not good enough to regard ourselves as His children. But reading your hubs always uplift my spirit. Always confirms that God is love and mercy and always our (perfect) father. Thank you so much for reminding us constantly of his love for us. It truly motivates and inspires us to built our relationship with Him, to hope, love and believe more fiercely.... (while condemners so easily kill our hope and faith and determination to do God’s will to the best of our abilities.)

      Ah my sister in, I will tell you I did not raise my hand. I learned quite a long time ago that we must push thoughts of insecurity, helplessness away with thoughts of Jesus and His Words to us....thoughts which are not led by the Spirit are from Satan, who is trying to pull all of us down...funny tho, in my journey while offline, I wrote two pieces on hope. what a wonder you and I on on the same path....wonderful read first hours back online....ttys....luv ya sis

      Sky, another awesome hub..I needed to hear this teaching today. lately I think I have been too critical of myself..I have to remind myself we are not perfect and our father knows this and loves us if I can just remember that all the time I might just get better at forgiving myself..and I am also happy that when I have made mistakes I did learn from them and did not have the attitude that well God will forgive me so it doesn't we must learn and change for the good of ourselves to move forward and grow in the love of God

      You have come very far my sister! I still beat myself up sometimes, but God has brought me a long way as far as forgiving myself and extending the same grace to myself as I do towards others. He has brought words of healing grace to me from a number of sources including this hub, which I thank you for.

      Skye dear sister. Though hidden within our fleshly selves, our angel's wings rest awaiting the time when God our Father will recall us to be at his side. Self- guilt, is Holy Spirit's teaching us, that we have done wrong, but we must never hold on to this to punish ourselves, for Holy Spirit also shows us how to shed it and enjoy even the lesson taught, for the glory of God.

      As soon as we begin to forgive ourselves we start to fel better and a golden smile begins to form for all to see.

      Brother Dave.

      Thank you for enhancing our understanding of divinity in relations to ourselves as His children. It is truly of the old nature that we sometimes treat ourselves less than kindly, not being fully cognizant of God's overpowering love for us.

      "We are Gods gems. He loves us more then our human understanding."

      It is true and we praise God continually for His love that looks beyond our faults to our needs.

      All glory to God!!

      Thank you for the inspiration of the Holy Spirit that flowed through in this hub.

      Forever His,

      Hi Sky... think there was many hands which shot up especially the right one. We do judge ourselves and we are very critical.

      Learning to forgive yourself is a process which takes time and it comes through the understanding we know because we know we are truly loved by the Father.

      PS... love you girl...

      Blessings and Hugs
