“Can I really stand here unashamed Knowin’ that Your love for me won’t change? Oh God, if that’s really true Then let the truth be told” (truth be told lyrics)
We are all broken. Dictionary defines ‘broken’ this way: fragmented, torn, damaged, ruined, weakened in strength,spirit……and to deny that, well, we’d only be lying to ourselves, wouldn’t we? Yet, while we may be lying to ourselves and everyone else, we can’t lie and hide from God. But, and I insert a HUGE BUT here! There’s good news, really good news. God. Still. Loves. Us!
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him.”
As I continue my Christian journey, I feel God quietly calling to me. In order for me to break free from the chains in my life and the lies I tell myself, I know I need to draw closer to Him. And, as I spend more and more time with Him, the clearer it becomes that God loves me in all my brokenness.
Jesus came to save the lost and broken. I admit my weaknesses, my brokenness, and accept Jesus as my Lord and Savior. He saved me!
I Am Thankful and Grateful for each little miracle, like watching the birds in my yard 🙏
Heavenly Father, sometimes, ok a lot if times, I tend to take my miracles for granted, or I take for granted You already know that I am grateful, so I don’t express my gratitude as often as I should. Whatever my reasons, today, this moment, I pray to you on fallen knees, how Grateful I Am. In Jesus’ Name, Amen
1 Thessalonians 5:18, “In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” (NKJV)
Romans 14:6a, “Whoever regards one day as special does so to the Lord.” (NIV)
1 Chronicles 16:34, “Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.” (NIV)
As a new day arises fresh and anew, so is my gratitude renewed. 🙏
“Give thanks to the Lord of lords: to him who alone does great wonders, who by his understanding made the heavens, who spread out the earth upon the waters, who made the great lights – the sun to govern the day, the moon and stars to govern the night…” (Psalm 136:3-9).
Whenever I have a question (when don’t I?) Or I just need a place to ‘be’ I take myself outside (Gods House) It’s where I feel closest to Him. (always) I sit in silence (me silent?!) Only to be serenaded by the song and chirps of my backyard cardinals. (Bird music) And I pray. And I heal. And I praise Him for this life of mine. That only He can give me. I Am Thankful And I Am Grateful
Day 7…I Am Thankful and Grateful for my love of books and reading. Today I am lost ( Actually Found..in God’s Word.)
There are four things said about the Word of God. It is alive, “All Scripture is God-breathed.” It is powerful. “It is powerful to convict; powerful to convert; powerful to transform; powerful to revolutionize.” It is surgical, “sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit and joints and marrow and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” It is victorious, “There is no creature that is not manifest before Him, for all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of Him with whom we have to do.”
“For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight; but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.” (Hebrews 4:12-13)
Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth. ( John 17:17)
