Welcome to my Monday Blog, friends!
Hope your weekend was wonderful and no matter where you were or who you were with, I hope you were busy creating beautiful memories for many tomorrows to come. My weekend was all about the little ones. We had our two, Lily and H for the weekend and it’s always way too much fun. By the time we return them to Mommy and Daddy on Sunday evening, PaPa & Grandma are ready for the “ole folks home”. But, of course, it’s always soooo worth it and we spend the next few days reliving those precious moments we all shared, knowing these memories will automatically be deposited into the Family Memories Album! Awe… Wonderful sweet blessings!!
When I think about my many blessings, I’m reminded of the many situations where I was all too busy praying for “the impossible” to happen and once again, I would be reminded that Impossible is where God starts!!
*”When I say that “I am a Christian”, I am not shouting that “I am clean living.” I’m whispering “I was lost, but now I’m found and forgiven.” When I say “I am Christian,” I don’t speak of this with pride. I’m confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide. When I say, “I am a Christian,” I’m not trying to be strong. I’m professing that I’m weak and need His strength to carry on. When I say , “I am a Christian, I’m not bragging of success. I’m admitting I have failed and need God to clean up my mess. When I say “I am a Christian,” I’m not claiming to be perfect. My flaws are far too visible but God believes I am worth it. When I say, “I am a Christian,” I still feel the sting of pain. I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name. When I say, “I am a Christian,” I’m not holier than thou. I’m just a simple sinner who received God’s grace, somehow.”
My prayer for us all this week is that we will consider our own faith in Christ. If we claim to be a Christian, then we must endeavor to live our lives by His will, not ours. It seems so simple, yet at times we find ourselves trying to make deals with Him. It doesn’t work, does it? God knows all, God knows best and Impossible is where God starts. “Impossible” is God’s trademark! Amen!!
GOD is Good! GOD is Great!! Always!!!
I love you,
