John 3:21 “But he who practices truth [who does what is right] comes out into the Light; so that his works may be plainly shown to be what they are–wrought with God [divinely prompted, done with God’s help, in dependence upon Him].”
I write because I feel compelled to share with you what He is doing in my life. His greatness never ceases to amaze me. These words that pour out, they are not my own. They are not my thoughts, they are not my authority. They serve merely as a symbol of my conviction for His brokenness. Jehovah, my Savior. He died. He bore the weight of the sins of every person that has, is, and ever will come to be. He took the debt we owed that had the weight of a penalty not one could ever atone, and He washed it clean. I depend on Him. He is my Refuge when life makes me weary. He is my Fortress when the world gets scary. He is my Father that is desperate for relationship with me.
He saved me. I am no longer a prisoner to my own selfish flesh. I was a raw, broken, sad little girl. The bitterness I carried for so long. The years of inner turmoil that dug into my spirit like blades of sawgrass. The anger I identified with because of past hurts. They’re all gone. He saved me. I am free. I am becoming all that I am simply because of Jesus. I want to spend the rest of my life chasing after Him. I want to grow old (but never gray) living in the glow of His Presence.
Why do I do this? I want each and every person that reads this blog to be touched by Him. I want you all to have lives full of this unending grace. I want your lives to be flourishing gardens of beauty and fragrance that will stretch beyond your greatest imagination. I want this conviction for hope, faith, and love to spread like wildfire. I want the hearts of this great nation to ignite like wildfire. I want this passion to become an epidemic. We can change the world, one wiped tear and bear hug at a time.
I want you to live lives full of joy. I want each and every one of you to live out your redemption. There is so much freedom in knowing that the price tag for eternal salvation is one I could never pay. Nothing I can do can measure to that mark. I can simply be loved, because I am. So are you. Go! Bless and be blessed.
Bloom where you are planted.
John 3:17 For God did not send the Son into the world in order to judge (to reject, to condemn, to pass sentence on) the world, but that the world might find salvation and be made safe and sound through Him.
