Well, it is finally here....the moment I've been waiting for, my first blog! Strange, I thought it would be more exciting than this, kind of like a birthday; the anticipation builds, and yet when it finally arrives.....
My hope is to share some of the hidden treasures I've learned along the way and encourage you in your walk with the Lord. At this time, I cannot say how often I will blog; with a husband, three children, a part-time job cooking at a local church, and serving in The Most Excellent Way Ministry www.mostexcellentway.org/welcome.asp (Christian based drug and alcohol support group), I have my hands full. I am also currently in the process of writing a 52 week devotional book. It's a devotional book based on what I've learned in the last 10 years of walking with the Lord and dealing with my past. The title, "Pullin' Weeds." The plan is for it to be in print by October 1. I would appreciate your prayers in this area and yes, I have a thing about gardens....and feathers as I'm sure you'll see along the way.
If I can leave you with my thoughts for the day, the Bible says in Isaiah 43: 18 & 19, "Do not remember the past events, pay no attention to things of old. Look, I am about to do something new; even now it is coming, Do you not see it? Indeed, I will make a way in the wilderness, rivers in the desert." WOW! Isn't that wonderful?! Isn't that freeing?! The Bible says in Psalm 103:12 that our sins are forgotten as far as the east is from the west! So if I walk in that and believe that, then why do I allow my past to control who am I today? I can walk in freedom through Christ by claiming and remembering those scriptures. John 8:31 & 32 says if I continue in His word, then I will know the truth and the truth will set me free. That truth and is Jesus folks.
I hope you are blessed in the Lord this day. Be in your place of worship this Sunday and it will change your week.
