What Is Character? -


We know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character, and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out His love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom He has given us. Romans 5:3-5

My Sunday school class is studying character and I have to say that I find it to be the most meaningful study I have done in a long time. Character is what we show to the world... What we show to our children... Character is Who we are when no one is looking.... Character is developed by our belief system... our rights... and our wrongs...

I have been having struggles with character lately.... It's strange how when we pursue God more... the Evil one tries to pull you back even harder... I have to resist - I have to keep looking up.. I have to build up my character... I need to focus on Him and Him alone...

One of the things I love about blogging is the incredible women I have met - Oh Sew Good is SSSSEEEWWW good at telling me like it is and I love her for that.... She made a comment to me recently in one of my posts and God just laid her words on my heart.... today - I realized that I did not trust God enough... I did not take His job for me seriously.... I did not show the character that I need to show... One of the many things I love about my God - is that he gives me do-overs... and today - I am praying for a do over... He knows what it is... I don't need to say it here in this blog... but He knows...

Thank you for your encouragement Kelly. The Lord has been teaching me the same things lately and for me, it's not a matter of DO I trust God; it's WILL I? I know that my spirit is willing and my flesh is weak. I also know that His spirit is within me both TO WILL and TO DO. I just have to yield. :)So I ask for His help to yield.

I wonder if these struggles in character ever get totally resolved while we are on earth? I'm glad we are on this journey together because you are so real. Btw, you've left some pretty amazing comments on my blog!
