I have traveled many miles in my lifetime. Jesus truly led me all the way. Having come from a very loving Christ centered home, I was brought up in the faith.
Sometimes we know God is leading, sometimes we do not. However, looking back I can see that through all times, good and not good, He was at my side; protecting, blessing, forgiving, rescuing, providing, and much more.
Every year brings forth unexpected joys and disappointments. Has He left or forgotten us? No. The blessings He pours out are beyond our greatest expectations. What He asks is simple: obey, believe and be faithful.
I love His Word. I love reading it. I love teaching it. He gives us wisdom, knowledge and understanding to apply it. It never fails.
One of my favorite chapters is Romans 12.
“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”
(Romans 12:1-2) NKJV
Keep focused on Him. His grace is always sufficient. Use your spiritual gifts. Through those gifts God does His work and shows His power.
