The fifteenth of April, a very special day for me, the day I rededicated my life to Jesus, and it has been great! In this short period of time, God has done so much for me and I am not surprised because psalm 90:4 says,
A thousand years to you are like one day; they are like yesterday, already gone, like a short hour in the night. When I rededicated my life to the Lord last month, this is what I did:
I accepted love in my life
I accepted peace in my heart
I accepted greatness and power
I accepted success and prosperity
When I gave my life to the Lord, I accepted eternal life!
Jesus mended me when I was broken! He healed my emotional wounds! Jesus justified me when I was just a sinner; He drew me into his perfect love. Jesus took away all my sins, and as far as the east is from the west, He cast them away. Jesus placed His awesome beauty, into my heart and my soul! Jesus took away all my shame and guilt and lifted me up. When I accepted Jesus in my life, He made me a princess, a princess walking in His beautiful plan that He has destined for me! Jesus created a new page in my life, a page where He has written good things for my life!
This brings to remembrance, a diary that I used to have years ago while I was a teenager. I used to write my deepest, darkest secrets in there. And one day, I as I read through it, I cringed at everything thing that I wrote there, how I took pride in committing sin and thought I was the coolest person living. I threw it away into a black plastic bin, and the Spirit of God said to me, "You see, just like you have thrown that book far away, so has God forgotten all your sins!"
There is nothing cool about getting drunk! There is nothing cool about sleeping around! There is nothing cool about dating married men! There is nothing cool about talking bad about another person in order for people to like you! There is nothing cool about gossip! There is nothing cool about watching pornography! There is nothing cool about taking nude pictures and sending them for every man to see! There is nothing cool about sexually involving yourself with another woman! There is nothing cool about the norms and traditions the devil has set for people living on earth!
1st Corinthians 1: 27 says,
"God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong."
The things of God are foolishness to the people of this world, just like the things of this world are foolishness to the things of God or children of God!
I am so excited about my journey with Christ. I am just resting in his loving arms. It is not about me anymore but all about him, and I am looking forward to see him turns things around for me. As I close last month's chapter, I believe that He is moving me forward to greater dimensions. Purifying and ministering to me throughout the process! God is saying to you today dear friend,
“Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD has risen upon you!"
I love you my sweet King Jesus, now and forever more!
