Good Morning my friends,
“We have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love you have for all God’s people— To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.” (Colossians 1:27)
Jesus Christ is the hope of Glory in my life. He is the One who walks beside me holding my hand daily. He is the same One that lives within me. He and I are intertwined involving every fiber of myself. The Light of His Presence shines within me, as well as upon me. He is in me and I am in Him. Nothing in Heaven or on Earth can separate me from Jesus Christ. I sit quietly in His Loving Presence listening to hear His voice speak to me. I am aware of what He did for me on the cross at Calvary and am grateful. The Joy of the Lord gives me strength. He gives me hope and fills me with Joy and Peace.
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” (Romans 15:13)
Today is my 4 year Anniversary.. It was on this date November 13, 2011 that I walked the aisle, repented of my sins, professed my faith, asked Jesus into my heart, and gave my life to Him. It was the greatest day of my life. It was on that day that I had my second birth. I was born again. Jesus explains explains the second birth to us in John 3:5-7 , “Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. You should not be surprised at my saying, ‘You must be born again.’ ” It was in the evening service of that same day that I performed my first act of obedience and was baptized.
“I, the Lord , have called you in righteousness; I will take hold of your hand. I will keep you and will make you to be a covenant for the people and a light for the Gentiles.” (Isaiah 42:6)
That was the day that I decided that I NO LONGER wanted just to have a a head knowledge of Jesus Christ but instead a heart knowledge.
I was on that day that I decided that I NO LONGER wanted to be a professor of faith but instead a possessor of faith.
It was on that day that I decided that I NO LONGER wanted to play church and live like Hell from the second I walked out the until the second I walk back in.
It was on that day that I decided that I NO LONGER wanted to have one foot in the spirit and one foot in the flesh.
It was on that day that I decided that I NO LONGER wanted to serve the world but instead serve and honor Jesus Christ in EVERYTHING I do.
Jesus Christ accepted me for the person I was and washed away ALL my sins, my baggage, and my past failures with His blood from Calvary and then clothed me in His righteousness. He choose me on that day and said it’s your turn. You’ve tried living life the way you wanted but now it’s time for you to start living My Way. He told me not to worry that He would mould me into the person He wanted me to be.
I’ve learned to listen & look for His Love & Grace. I’ve learned that He will lead & guide me through my day if I just allow Him. I’ve learned that He will bless my thoughts & words as well as my actions everyday if I just Ask Him. I’ve learned that He will bless me daily with knowledge & wisdom in ALL circumstances if I just Seek Him. I’ve learned that He will calm the sea’s NO MATTER how big the storm if I just Knock. He broke the shackles of sin and delivered me to Holy Ground. He lights my path and guides me home. My cup of Joy runneth over daily. The blessing from my Holy God are raining down upon my life and I AM STRONGER than EVER…
Nehemiah said, “Go and enjoy choice food and sweet drinks, and send some to those who have nothing prepared. This day is holy to our Lord. Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.” (Nehemiah 8:10)
MY CHALLENGE for YOU… Let His Light shine within YOU…
I hope you have a FABULOUS day…. Blessings & much love……D
ALWAYS…..Live YOUR life like it’s your LAST 24!!!
