Thinking over today who created me. A God of love and a God of change. When we are faced with changes, it becomes our choice in how we handle it. We find along the way of life, their are footprints made by people who enter our lives and leave our lives. People who challenged us to become better people and people who were not so good for us.
Along the way, we made right choices and we have made wrong choices. The Bible says we have all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God ~ Romans 3:23
There is no time to point fingers at other people today. It becomes time for each of us to stand up and be the man or woman of God he has called us to be. Little kids need great examples, teenagers need great examples and adults need each other to be great examples. Kindness is not just a word, but an accident. We are called to action to treat others like Jesus would treat them. Not with disrespect or anger, but in love and grace.
We become different people when Jesus enters our hearts. We stand up for what is right and show others it's not just a Sunday action for a few hours, but a daily walk in this big world. My Pastor was speaking about our circle of people. The people we come in contact with and our influence makes a difference. I began to think about the people I know. Even the past hurts has become an influence on my life. It has changed me inside and I view things quite different than years ago. After I gave my complete heart to God, I still have challenges and hurts, but I've learned to deal with them different. I stop, breathe and think things through before I speak or at least I try. I am human and sometimes I say things wrong.
1 John 1:5-7 English Standard Version
Walking in the Light
5 This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. 6 If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. 7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.
WE NEED EACH OTHER ~
God never purposed us to walk this life alone
I share my heart with you on a daily bases. It's not about me, but about the love and the words on one page that God wants them to know. One of my stories might help you and knowing that God is with you. We don't always see quick results in prayers, but holding on is important. Our hearts feel as if we can only take so much and that so much line is here. God I call upon your name and ask largely of your power to help the readers of this blog, their family and friends.
As a kid, I wanted to be shown attention and I didn't get much. I didn't know the depth of the Love of God until later in life. Mistakes happen, failures happen and the devil wants to divide us from people. People who bring encouragement to us and value to our own lives. If you are feeling alone today, reach out to an old friend or connected with a local church and bring life into your life. Starting over is not always easy, but I have found it very valuable in my own life. I've been broken inside my heart and God is the only one who restores that heart.
