** **BUT IS CHRIST REALLY YOUR KING?** **

![1.jpg](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmWydTGCMcJQ4Yxth2BBFcAGJ3bQUmmngwAAgLzGWc7dcC/1.jpg)

**Well a King has Authority. So another way of Asking is, โ€œDoes Christ have Authority in Your Life?Do you and I Acknowledge that Everything we call Our Own Really belongs to Him? How well do We use the Things that We Call our own but which Really Belong to God?โ€**

**How do We use Our Time?** 
**Are We Committed to Pray and Be at Mass every Sunday Without Fail?** 
**Do we use enough of Our Time to Serve God and Others or Merely for Selfish Pursuits?** 

What of Our Capacity to Talk? 
Do we Use Our Gift of Speech to Witness, To Evangelize, or Merely for Small Talk and Gossip? 

**What of Our money?** 
**Are we Faithful to the Lordโ€™s Command to Tithe? (Mal 3:7-12; Matt 23:23).** 
**Are We Generous enough to The Poor and Needy?** 
**Do we Spend Wisely or Foolishly?** 
**Do we Pay Our Debts in a Timely Way?** 

What of Our Bodies? 
Do we Exhibit Proper Care and Nutrition of them? Are we Chaste? 
Do we Observe Proper Safety or are we Reckless and Unsafe? 
Do we Reverence life? 
Do we Love the Poor and Help sustain their lives? 

**Well you get the Point. It is One Thing to Call Christ Our King, it is Another to Truly be Under His Authority. The Lord is Clear enough in Telling us that He expects Our Obedience: Why do you Call Me Lord Lord and Not Do What I Tell You? (Luke 6:46)**

In times of trouble, think of God.  Think only of God.   

I heard it from 'the Golden Key' .. it is a practical tool that can be used in all things.

Well said,but I feel its much better to think of God when you are well settled rather than thinking at the time of trouble.

i think in terms of just always returning to God.  rest with God.  that is your home.  if you don't go home, well... you will be tired, you will get pissy... you will make more mistakes.  nobody is doing it to you, it would just be a lack of energy from not recharging at home.  ; )

but the times of trouble, it is most important then to avoid mistakes, often high pressure situations will appear one way, but if you recenter yourself, think on God, and let your presence shine thru, you find things easier, done simplier, and with more joy and less mistake.
