Christ’s mighty power…

Colossians 1:29

Colossians 1:28-29
“So everywhere we go, we tell everyone about Christ. We warn them and teach them with all the wisdom God has given us, for we want to present them to God, perfect [mature] in their relationship to Christ. I work hard at this, as I depend on Christ’s mighty power that works within me.
So do I ? I mean work really hard at this ?
I’m not always certain I am working as hard as I should. I pray for strength, I stand as firmly as I can, but is it as firmly as I should?
The book of Colossians is a wonderful letter to each of us. It is God speaking to us…here he is telling us to follow the commission. Paul speaks of working diligently at the commission, using the wisdom  God has given them to teach and preach the Gospel.
It is my commission, The Great Commission, to share the Word of God with everyone in our path. Either by carrying ourselves in a manner representative of Christ, or by obeying the Holy Spirit when He rises and gives us urge to pray for someone or witness to them.
So I search myself, down here in the Hopeannfaith’s well. Do I work hard at this? Do I depend upon Christ’s mighty power that works within me? Or do I try these things in my own power?
I will sit here in the well and meditate upon this. Asking the Father to reveal in me how to tap into the Mighty Power of Christ within me. I will seek understanding or revelation…I’d like both.
Blessings All.

Welcome, I'm Andrea ... HOPEannFAITH ... I write and take pictures as a way of expression. These are gifts given by a loving and indulgent Father, to a headstrong and stubborn daughter, with much to say. A semi-retired social worker/secretary, I now call myself a writer. I've published one internet article and written many blog posts. However, publishing does not make one a writer, anymore than taking a box camera to the park makes one a photographer. What makes one who and what they are? Well God for one ... formed me before the foundations of this world (Psalm 139); and many, many years after putting away my passion for wordsmithing and picture taking He gave it back ... in droves. I am a culmination of my choices and experiences. It is here that my experiences color the world in print and color. It is my goal to reach just one soul a day with love ... encouragement ... understanding or just letting that soul know that they are not alone where they are today. This is about creating ~ all of it. Creating a HOLY and SACRED place where the ugly truth can be healed and the beauty of a moment or a tear can brighten a day for the experience. Why HOPEannFAITH? Hopeannfaith is my inner child, and she is maturing, as she should have done all along. She is learning all about how Faith fulfills Hope. She is learning how to live. HOPEannFAITH ~ the wonder twins all wrapped up in one, me. These are my Journey Journals ~ written and visual. I welcome your company. I welcome your friendships. My Journey is in the light ~ although I have and will share the shadowy corners and the dark ~ so you know that you are never alone there. If we hold hands in the dark, and we walk, side by side, through the shadow, we will reach the Light together. In relationship with one another and with the Light. Blessings.
