It’s Time to Believe the Lord

As we were looking through some old pictures, today, I was reminded of our early church: it has been an amazing journey. People may come and go from your life, but those who have endured have left a legacy for the next generation. I can never forget how hesitant I felt, before walking back into a Pentecostal church after being away for decades.

Would these people receive me? or even more importantly, would the Lord forgive me? Thankfully, there was no cause for worry, because while  all I had left to offer was a wounded spirit, the Lord lifted me up, and restored my joy. I was determined to move forward, and never look back. The sorrow of sin condemns us for eternity, but Jesus Christ saves us from that death sentence.

On the day that I returned to him, it was with a  determined heart. My desire was to live for the Lord, but I had prayed that I didn’t have to do it alone, so after a while, my husband joined me in this journey. God’s salvation is for whosoever will.

It’s the first Sunday of a new year, and it’s customary to make resolutions. Instead of making resolutions, I will just say I will do my best to honor Christ this year more than ever, in every area of my life.

I pray, Lord, that you will allow me to be used by you as a vessel of honor in this writing ministry. Help me to be sensitive to your directions on the best way to approach subjects, and write only what I can support with adequate prayer. If I go off topic, or allow self to dictate what will be shared, remind me to submit to your will, and not my own. I surrender my abilities to be used by you in any way that you see fit.

Lord, help me to be thankful for the experiences, both good and not so good, that have allowed me to grow. I believe that 2016 will be a good year to make fresh commitments, and renew our vision for the future. A good day to begin this, is today.

 It’s Time to Believe the Lord.
