Bloom {Into Beautiful}: The Journal Series: Week 4


The Journal Series: Week 4

Good morning! 
I hope your week has been lovely. I just want to say thanks so much for reading this little blog of mine & showing so much love!

Reading: Genesis Ch. 16-20
What stuck out to me in this reading was when Abraham asked God to spare Soddom & Gomorrah if he could find just 10 righteous people. God said yes. But there wasn't even 10! It makes me think about how many there are on the earth right now? One million? 800,000? 500,000? 100,000? 50,000? 15,000? Maybe even just 5,000. It's an interesting and sad thing to think about. Also, the part where Lot's wife looks back on the city and turns into a pillar of salt. It reminds me of how God will sometimes ask us to turn away from something for Him... but yet we sometimes still look back at those things. I need to check myself on this! God has called us to a life of holiness! To serve and seek Him and not the things of this world. Sometimes I find myself wanting to do things that God told me to give up for Him and I know this is wrong. I have to get past that and look FORWARD! God has a reason for this and I need to trust that and not give in when I'm faced with a test in that area! 

Thanks for reading!
