I am so glad you’re here. From the bottom of my heart.
If you have been following this blog for awhile, you probably have read many personal stories.
All of these little stories are part of a bigger story. Let me explain …
I am very passionate about healthy living. I have read many different books and researched many different topics. I could write and talk about it for hours. I could give you advice on everything you need to start doing to improve your quality of life. But If I don’t talk about the One who is the way, the truth, and the life, all of your lifestyle choices are not gonna be meaningful, because He is the one who has come so that you might have life and have it in abundance.
I could share with you everything I know about decorating, entertaining, cooking, photography, and many other things. But at the end of the day, whatever you do, or I do, do everything for the glory of God.
Life is messy and it certainly sucks sometimes. And while everything around us, including ourselves, are constantly changing, or maybe in some cases, spinning out of control, I’m here to tell you that it is possible. We can have one constant in our lives. My prayer for you is that you grow into a deep understanding of the faith, hope and love, that only Jesus Christ can bring you.
I don’t know if you have ever heard, read, or thought these words before. But if you haven’t. You can pray with me right now, in front of this very screen.
Lord, you have said in your word “if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved”(Romans 10:9). I ask for that kind of faith. Fill me with your Holy Spirit and help me fully believe that Jesus laid down His life for me so that I might have life eternally and abundantly now. Help me comprehend the fullness of Your forgiveness so that I will not live in guilt, but live a fruitful life. Filled with joy, hope and love.
In Jesus name I pray.
He is my light, my strength, my song;
this Cornerstone, this solid Ground,
firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
What heights of love, what depths of peace,
when fears are stilled, when strivings cease!
My Comforter, my All in All,
here in the love of Christ I stand.
Fulness of God in helpless babe!
This gift of love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones he came to save:
Till on that cross as Jesus died,
The wrath of God was satisfied –
For every sin on Him was laid;
Here in the death of Christ I live.
There in the ground His body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain:
Then bursting forth in glorious Day
Up from the grave he rose again!
And as He stands in victory
Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me,
For I am His and He is mine –
Bought with the precious blood of Christ.
No guilt in life, no fear in death,
This is the power of Christ in me;
From life’s first cry to final breath.
Jesus commands my destiny.
No power of hell, no scheme of man,
Can ever pluck me from His hand;
Till He returns or calls me home,
Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand.
