And we all, with unveiled face,
beholding the glory of the Lord
,are being transformed into the same
image from one degree of glory to another.
For this comes from the Lord
who is the Spirit. 2 Corinthians 3:18
Let your name be reverence in all the world, for You are holy and deserve all praise. There is no one like You, you are our Provider, Healer, Deliver and so much more. Father I thank you for this day. I just want to thank you for my brothers and sisters in the Faith. I pray Lord that they will stay in Your face to seek you and have a relationship with You. I pray that they will love You with all their hearts and that they will put You first in all things. That they will submit to you and resist the devil. I know some of my brothers and sisters are being persecuted for their faith in You, but I pray that you will strengthen them and know that You love them. I pray for unity and love among us.
Just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love. Eph. 1:4
For I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Ps. 139:14
In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him. 1 John 4:9
For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Rom. 8:38-39
What if you were is a situation when someone hold a gun to you and ask if you would die for Christ? What would you say? Some people would say "of course I would die for Him" but when I really think about that question, I wonder what I would say. I don't know what I would say if an opportunity to die for the Savior. I would hope to say "yes", but would I? I hope that I would love my Savior more than myself. I hope that I would be bold in my faith.
What is beauty? Is it blue eyes? Is it tall and skinny? Do you have to have long hair? Do you have to be a size zero? It is something physical or invisible? I was thinking of this question when I was at a women bible study this past week as we were talking about beauty. It is such a good topic and so many people struggle with the concept of beauty. For me I thought beauty was to have the perfect face, to be tall, and have really long hair. I even thought it was something that was easily seen. As I grown I a Christian I realize that what the world think is beauty is different from the way my Father see's beauty. I have come to notice that beauty is seen in someone (the way they listen and do things for you). It is my Father creation that is beauty (animals, flowers, people, tree's rivers etc.). What really trip me up was that beauty is invisible. I say that because for Jesus Christ when I think of Him, he is beautiful and I can't see Him. It is something about my Lord that …
Today I cry at the thought of knowing that our Savior would even think and consider coming down here to die for our sins. He did that so we could have a relationship with Him and the Father. Before Christ, because of our sin there was a gap between us and God. But the good news is that we have a chance to be forgiven and be with our Father. When I look at myself all I see is a filthy person that deserves to go to hell. I'm amazed that God would think of me and save me from the wrath to come. He is truly an amazing Savior and there is no one like him. I just have to thank my Savior for dieing on the cross for my sins. Because of Christ Jesus, there is a chance that I can be with Him, a chance to have a relationship with Him. I love you Lord and just want to thank you for dying on the cross for me, you did not have too but because you love us you voluntarily decided to die for us. Thank you.
One thing that I can honesty say that I love about the college I go to, is that I love Spiritual Emphasis week, so far my college has brought some really good guest speakers. This time they brought a husband, father of eight children, pastor, professor and an entrepreneur. He is also a founder and pastor of the Hub University church in Florida.
Day 1: Son/Daughter of God (Identity in Christ) Day 2: Sanctification Day 3: Purity
I learn so much this week and I am so happy that the Pastor Rivera came to talk to us. It is so important for us Christians to know who we are in Christ and that we can trust God. For me it can be so hard to let go and let God do what he will. It's so hard to trust, but its God, he will never hurt me and I see that now. I always hear him say "trust me, I want hurt you" but I don't listen. But I changing my ways and I am going to trust God with everything (my hope, dreams, desires, fears, secrets, pains etc.). Since I am saved I don't have to co…
I was looking back at all my post and I notice a lot about myself as a Christian. I remember when I first started this blog I was 16 years old and at that age I did not like myself. I was very depressed and I did not have any friends. I was just so incomplete and unsatisfied with myself. I did not have Christian friends and I really needed that to help me along in my Christian walk with God. I see year by year I was writing different, I could see the difference in my relationship with God, my self-esteem was higher, did not want to kill myself, I just wanted to be with God. I wanted to be like him and have a relationship with him. I thank my Father from where he brought me in life. I am happy to be a child of God. Thank Him for answering my prayers about putting older Christian women in my life, about school, and having a relationship with Him. I praise my God. He is so good.
I can say that I hope that year by year that I will continue to grow as a Christian and be a woman after God.
