As I read the scriptures and reflect this morning on my life and this past week participating with Flower City Work Camp I realize once again that we have such an amazing God! He is able to take our lives no matter how bad they may seem and just turn them around. Our God is an awesome God!
Through His word He will speak to you time and time again! He will confront you, He will convict you! He will always remind you who you were, who you are, and where you will be going! But you must listen and put your trust in Him! Have faith! Open your Bible! Read it! Do what it says! Live it! Do this daily! Repeat it! And Continue in it! Don’t quit! Don’t give up!
The psalmist tells us, The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul; The testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple; The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; The commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes; The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever; The judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, Yea, than much fine gold; Sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. (Psalms 19:7-10 NKJV)
My eyes tear as I write this… God has done so much for me, I am so grateful that He has shown His presence to me, I wake up every day Humbled before Him, He lifts me high up on that rock and protects me from the evil one and keeps me safe! He loves me no matter what! And as His child I love Him back! Lord I need you, I love you!
I pray that all of you who read this may someday feel the same way, if you don’t already, May the Lord bless you and keep you; May the Lord make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you; May He lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace. (Numbers 6:24-26 NKJV)
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own Understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths” (Proverbs 3:5-6)
Live as children of God and not children of this world, be a light to all! Let that light shine so brightly that those who are attracted to that light have no choice but to head to that light.
Be godly in all that you do, choose to love; choose to do what is good because He is good. Use every moment and every opportunity that you have to share your story, and present the Gospel to others, you were called for a reason, now live it!
And don’t forget Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. (I Corinthians 10:31 NKJV)
I pray to you today and every day, I give you thanks for all that you do. I ask that you just lift us all up, fill us with your Holy Spirit, convict us, confront us, we all need as much help as we can get! And I will be the first to admit that! I need you! Give me direction, open the doors of opportunity, in all things Father not our will but your will! You know the heart of us all! Make it so captain! Take the lead! In Jesus’ wonderful name, the savior for us all, amen!
