Hey hey hey!!!! Hope y’all had an awesome weekend and are all rested up to hit the ground running tomorrow as the work week starts! I’m trying my best to stay true to what I promised you and keep digging into Colossians for awhile so we can squeeze out every ounce of gold God has for us there. I remember when I started writing these daily messages, which were sent by text then and to those who were apart of that are still getting the GGOTD text. The main reason for sending these or honestly even writing them was because I was new in my faith, new to following Christ and getting into God’s Word so I had no clue what I was doing. Taking a piece of scripture and writing about what God is saying, how His truth impacted me personally, and the experiences I went through that showed how God is constantly working and His Word is alive in our daily lives. That message, really digging into the core of “who I am?” And more importantly “who I am with God.” Those messages changed my life and has taught me so so much through each one, mainly because of God’s Word.
You know what’s funny? I still send these out every day and I may have more Bible “knowledge” but the truth is, I STILL HAVE NO CLUE WHAT I’M DOING!!! I really have no idea. Taking God’s Word, digging into it and not only learning some cool stuff but living it too, CLUELESS! So shout-out to all my people out there that don’t have a clue what they are doing with God’s Word, even when you try to dig into it you find yourself lost in how to apply what God’s has given you, I’m sitting in the same seat you are homie! That’s why today I got so excited to keep digging into Colossians, going verse by verse and just seeing what God is going to teach us and the real-life experiences that He gives us to put His truth to action. I’m excited because I don’t just get to dig into the most awesome, life-changing Words ever written from the most awesome and loving God alone. I get to dig into His Word with each of you and not only share it but also learn and grow in our relationship with God through the Word He has spoken to us together!!!
I’ve looked at the God Gold and this new, bigger platform for so long being just something I do, something I am in control over but God has created this for so much more. It’s not mine at all, it’s all His. To be honest I never had any intention of ever sending out a word of encouragement to anyone, it just kind of happened and all I can think is that God had other plans. These messages are so huge to my personal growth and it means so much to see the way God works through these to encourage others and some of the messages of Gold and wisdom I’ve received as a reply to these have helped me so much hearing another perspective. That’s why I’m excited because these messages aren’t about me, if they were I would write them in a journal and be done with it. These messages going through this platform are about you, me and every other person who may ever read them. We have an opportunity to dig into His Word together, grow and learn how to apply His truth together, so we can be living breathing examples of what God has called us to be, lights in a dark world.
So I’m reaching out to you, the God Gold community to join with me in these next couple of weeks of digging for Gold in Colossians!!! I genuinely want to hear what God is doing in your lives, what your takeaway of these verses are, how you are struggling to apply them or how God is teaching you to live it! Like I said I’m clueless, so I honestly need all the help I can get! I can’t think of a better way to get help than from you and a better way to use this awesome messaging platform than to encourage each other, help each other and move each other forward closer to Christ and a bigger example to those in the world around us!
Tomorrow’s gold we’ll be digging into Colossians 1:18-20 talking about how God has sent His Son, Jesus, to close the gap between us sinful humans and God. How Jesus came to give us a way to get back into the perfect fellowship and relationship that God designed for us to have with Him. The big thing, what Jesus has done for us not only from dying on the cross but rising from dead to life!!! I’m so jacked to dig into this awesome Word with you guys and see what God has for us! Also, please please please share with me the gold God is showing you these verses or just the gold God is giving you and teaching you in your daily life, whatever you got send it in!!! Excited to learn from you and hear the awesome things God is doing!
