This was written on Sunday, February 4th as God has impressed upon my heart. It’s amazing how He speaks to us; if we will only take the time to listen. He is definitely a life changer and I owe my entire being to Him!
It’s an incredible feeling of hope that overwhelms me when I think of God’s love for me! As I stand at the alter during praise and worship this morning my hands are lifted to Heaven and my voice singing to God, while tears stream down my face; I remember what He has done for me. The words of the song were “You deserve it, My Halleluiah belongs to you, You Deserve It”! Once a cold and bitter woman; Gods love took a cold stony heart and changed it into one of deep love. God’s grace, love and mercy for me is relentless as is mine for Him as I pursue Him more than anything or anyone. I pray that His will be done in every area of my life!
***Ezekiel 36:26 (NLT) Moreover, I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you, and I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.
My birthday was yesterday and when I looked on Facebook there was an overwhelming amount of likes, loves, happy birthdays and other comments showing their love to me. I was in tears last night just thinking about the outpouring of love shown to me. I have never had this many happy birthday wishes in my life. There are so many that I haven’t had the opportunity to thank each precious friend!
I made a post on Facebook about feeling so much love with so many responding on my page for my birthday. And one of my friends stated that it is so easy to love someone who is so loving. Her kind words really made me think because I know how I use to be. But praise God for He has changed me and given me the heart that I now possess. One of tenderness, love, mercy and no longer selfish but caring of others and lifting them up. I am still human; not perfect and my heart breaks at times; however the deep down love I have for others now is totally opposite of where I once was.
I am so thankful for Gods work within me .Pastor Jim stated in service today that Jesus became poor so I can be enriched by the Rhema Word of God. And you can’t be enriched if you give up!
***2 Corinthians 8:9 (AMP) For you are recognizing (more clearly) the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ (His astonishing kindness, His generosity, His gracious favor), that through He was rich, yet for your sake He became poor, so that by His poverty you might become rich (abundantly blessed).
So in closing, I encourage you to keep on seeking God; seek Him first and everything else will be added to you. If you need peace, joy and a change in life…I know the way maker. Fall to your knees, look up to Heaven and talk to the Father today! He changed my heart and life and will do the same for you; we just need to be submissive as he molds, shapes and prunes us!
***Matthew 6:33 (NLT) Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.
To God Be All the Glory, Honor & Praise!
Remember, God Loves You & So Do I
