I’ve been thinking about the world we live in and how important it is to come together as believers, in the plans that God has for those that love Him and want to walk in the way He has intended for all human beings. A path of unending choices and worldly ambitions that tend to distract us from the promises that bring us peace.
I have an overwhelming desire to somehow share what He has taught me, to actively be a sharer of His love through many years of documented conversations with the light of His love that exists in the deepest depths of my soul, not to push religion but to express a relationship with my Father in Heaven.
I am going to put it out there that I am open to any feedback, questions or experience’s that have brought you to believe in and trust that Jesus is as real to you as He is to me. I have a great love for God that has grown to such a fulfilling and beautiful relationship that I absolutely could not imagine my life without Him. I will also be happy to answer questions however I am not ordained or educated in theology. I am only educated in life experience.
I have been journaling for much of my life. If I were to put it into a calculation of years, it would be at least 20. My journals consist of morning conversations with the Lord that encourage me and lift me up in preparation for my day. Journaling brings peace to my soul and I talk to God as if He is a friend sitting across the table from me. I really haven’t gone back to read much of what I have written but what I have went over amazes me.
I am excited to begin sharing some of the content of these journal entries in hopes that it can somehow uplift others and give hope to those that are hurting or struggling. We face many challenges throughout a day and it is often helpful to be able to know that we are not alone in these struggles. I grew to love and know God, I wasn’t borne into a family that was active in church or bible reading. I was raised in a broken, dysfunctional family that struggled in life as many of us do. I’m not really going to go into the deep stuff of my past. I just want people to know that I can relate in some of the most down word painful life experiences.
So with that being said just to scrape the surface and break the ice a little, I want to say Hello my name is Michelle and I want to ask you if you know Jesus? He loves you!
I thought it would be a great idea if I added an entry from my journals in my blogs and at some point in my life take all that I have written and put it in a book.
So many times I’ve wanted to pray over a certain individual and I didn’t always do it. It’s strange how fear of how someone may feel about you would cause a different reaction to what one’s heart is telling them to do. Lately I’ve been struggling with thoughts that I know are not my own. Weird and sometimes wayward thoughts. I know they are not mine. I know they are forced into my mind by Satan as a trick to try to tempt and side track me from my destination. I know that if I were walking without the Lord in my life I would fall into the pit of despair and give way to the torment.
This is what happens to people who do not have God at the center of their hearts. I once was one of these people. Lord, please let me be a vessel of your love. Humble me and let me be a servant unto you. Remind me time after time to stay in complete peace no matter the situation. Remind me to be kind-hearted and patient with all. That I would stay busy with my hands and lift you up in praise with my mouth. That across my lips will always be my adoration of you. That I would not become over-whelmed but always know “With God all things are possible”
Thank you Lord for all of my blessings.
