I’m Alesia and I am a home schooled Christian teen trying to adapt to today’s crazy society.
Welcome to my blog!
My blog name means several things: By Reaching Higher I am challenging myself to Do and Be better in all that I am.
Instead of settling for the normal, I’ll Reach Higher by setting goals to grow strong in both my personal life and my spiritual life with God.
In this blog, I will post about My Spiritual Journey and the discoveries I make as I learn more about God and all the amazing things He's done!
"Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity." 1 Timothy 4:12
It's amazing isn't it?
Thinking about how God will always love us, and nothing we can do will ever change that.
It's almost unbelievable, to think that we could possible be loved that much, that even when murder is committed, or things are stolen, God still loves us.
Nothing we can do, can make God love us more then He already does, nothing!
Because God already loves us SO much, there isn't any possible way for Him to love us more!
Honestly, I start to get a bit of a head ache when I try to think of how much He loves us, and how it's not possible for Him to love us more.
It's confusing but true.
There is NO possible way to make God love us more then He already does.
"What if I do something REALLY bad? Will He still love me then?"
The answer is YES! No matter what you do, God will ALWAYS love you!
That doesn't mean we can go around stealing, lying, killing or screaming at our siblings/parents.
God will still love you even if you do those things, but He will be upset and disappointed with you.
If you ask me, having God disappointed with me would be an awful thing!
I want to have God pleased with me and all that I do.
Even though I know, He'll always love me, that doesn't mean I am going to allow myself to sin, just because "He'll still love me even if I just take this cookie."
No, I am not going to allow myself to fall into sin, just because I know God will always love me.
I have found many scriptures about God's love towards us, and I've found them very inspirational, I hope you do too.
“My son, do not despise the Lord’s discipline and do not resent his rebuke, because the LORD disciplines those he loves, as a father the son he delights in.”
“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
“For great is his love toward us, and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever. Praise the Lord.”
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
God will love us forever, and forever is a VERY long time!
Even though we know He’ll never stop loving us, and that there is no possible way to make Him love us more, we still need to do our best to live a life that would be pleasing to Him.
