Genesis 1 New International Version (NIV)
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
I WILL CONTINUE ~
To believe and know that miracles still happen. I have heard others day that the Bible was written a long time ago and it's just a book. I don't believe it is just a book, but a book for this journey of life. God speaks of the beginning of time and how he saw things needed to be done. He not only saw it, but did something about it. He not only saw it, but he rested too.
Genesis 2 New International Version (NIV)
Thus the heavens and the earth were completed in all their vast array.
By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. 3 Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.
I WILL CONTINUE ~
The seventh day wasn't the end, but a day set aside to be blessed and holy.
I have learned that I don't know everything and I just trust God at his word. I read about stories of miracles and victories in lives. I hold on those stories of hope and know that God is able. I say that often but I mean it. In my younger years, I was taken to a church service as a kid. I heard a message on faith and the power behind believing. My mom stopped going to church but that service planted in my head. Then I had a neighbor friend (Connie) who asked me to church. It was there that I heard that Jesus Loves Me and it sparked something inside my heart. I didn't go to church anymore until I was about 17 and I didn't like church. It scared me and I saw crazy stuff there. My dad made me go but when I was 18 and he died, I stopped going. I was angry at God because my dad died and my mom cried at night to die too. I will fast forward this story now.
My dad died on July 1973 and it was December of that same year that I thought to take my mom to church. It was there that I heard a little boy preach and little did I know, it was a connected God had planned. That little boy turned out to be the same age as me and 4 years later, I would marry him. Married over 40 years and continuing to serve the Lord. I don't know why somethings happen, but I know that God's plan is life and death. A beginning and an end, but it's all the in-between stuff that matters. My thoughts, my actions, my belief, my attitude and the list goes on. My answer to all life issues is this, "I WILL CONTINUE". Nope, I can't leave it there, it reads like this: "I WILL CONTINUE TO SERVE THE LORD and KNOW HE IS ABLE".
So many ups and downs, but I will continue to believe in miracles. Purpose this a good day. My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
