Desire God’s Great Love
Alone, I often talk to myself which makes some say to me, “Zola we never know when you are talking to us or not.” I usually laugh at them and say, I am a verbal person and think out loud, but be assured, I am not answering myself.” Mostly I sigh, ‘Holy Spirit what should I do?” He answers me too, but it is through his word, thoughts, or feelings that come in to my heart. Joel 2:28 (KJV) tells me that God speaks to us, in many different ways, he says “that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions.”
One day while talking to myself, I called out to the precious Holy Spirit, and one of my co-workers walked behind me and said, “Yes, what is it?” Tempted to become annoyed because I knew this person did not believe in God, and always made fun of me, I remained quiet for a moment. “Franklin, go away,” I replied, “I don’t have time for this.” He started laughing and said, “I thought you were smarter than that. There is no God”
Franklin and I, have had the belief in God conversation before, and he calls me crazy; however, I always say to him, “I am older than you and I need no medication, but you younger than I take a drawer full of pills just to keep going each day,” plus I add, “God is good to me.” Franklin and others like him, I experience great pity for; they have no beliefs, but those associated with doctors, money, worship of people, things, and their own greatness. This I have found, in the end does not work out so well for them, even in this world; I have seen the failure of such people repeatedly. It may take years, but time catches up to them. 1 Corinthians 3:19-20 (KJV) 19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness. 20 And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain.”
I have learned to ignore people like Franklin, because it is a fact that some people will not believe; and even when some do, they place such unbending beliefs and rules upon a person, it is hard to believe that God wants to do anything but punish us for his own pleasure. Lies, lies, all of them; Jesus said to those of us who do believe, Matthew 11:28-30 (KJV) 28 “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” It is indeed an easy path to follow I have found when we put our trust in God; He is good. He is the great I AM, and he has sent his wonderful Holy Spirit to comfort and help us. John 14:15-17 (KJV) “If ye love me, keep my commandments. 16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; 17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.”
By the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, I write to help people, encouraging them to continue on, even when the days feel too long and bleak. I believe in in God’s goodness, and that he only wants the best for us. Like I mentioned in my bio, I am no leader in a church; I study the bible, take lessons, and learn from men that God has given understanding and knowledge. Truly, I am someone who has experienced His goodness too, and my desire is that others who are feeling tired of life, hold on and don’t give up; everyone can experience God’s abundant love.
You may not be one of the great ones, as the world calls them, or maybe someone has hurt you badly; you might have lost your job, a long time spouse, or partner, however I want to tell you to hold on to your love and faith. Disappointments come to all of us, but troubled times don’t have to determine our future. God can use our hurt and discouragement, to make us stronger, giving us hope within to reach beyond the limits we have placed upon ourselves.
These beliefs are from the promises I found in His word and his multiple blessings. For me, as I follow him, he helps me release things I no longer need, or were unprofitable to me; but at the same time filling my heart with new things, he aids me physically, mentally, and spiritually. I have been through many trials, still worries come after me, but I don’t let them stay. Just as my title says, “Words for the weary,” I hope to inspire you to trust in God, regardless of where you are in the world. There really is no pomp or excitement in it; only words to help lift those that are down, through sharing my own experiences in my books, videos, and posts. All testimonies on how God has changed my life and the life of others for the better.
