If you are seeking for meaning and looking for peace in your life…
What is a Christian?
Being a Christian is all about a relationship and communication with the Lord. It is about:
~repentance and forgiveness of the sin that put Christ on the cross.
~rebirth and new life in him.
~fellowship with God and the peace that comes with knowing He is in control.
~trusting him with our lives and living as a light in the dark for him.
~being 100% sure heaven awaits when this life is over.
What does being forgiven mean?
Being forgiven means that all our sins, no matter how horrible and seemingly unforgivable, are forever blotted out from God’s memory. They no longer have power over us. We now have a choice in our behavior and actions.
What is grace?
Although I was raised in a Christian home, it wasn’t until I had my first child that the Lord became real and powerful in my life.
When all that I had been taught from a little girl finally reached my heart, my life was forever changed.
Knowing I am held by Him and being 100% sure I am going to heaven because of His work in my life is the basis of my inspiration. I feel His hand no matter life’s circumstances- through both good and bad- and see His hand in everything around me. All creation really does testify and point to God in heaven.
The time since becoming a mom has been hard, sweet, rewarding and freeing. My journey with the Lord had led me to a place of being free from my past and has moved me from being a daughter of a earthly father to being a daughter of the King. Perspective is everything and God has blessed my journey with healing and growth. I can now say that there is an old me and that I am a new person in Christ. The old has gone and the new has come.
One of the greatest lessons I have learned is that all I do is done for the Lord as an instrument of his will and a light to those around me. Operating in that mindset has given me the motivation to keep going when the going got tough and has enabled God’s love to flow through me out to others.
