The Blessing Has Been For Me

I am always asked how I write so many blogs and what made me start. It’s not me, God gives me the words and He laid this blog idea on my heart in April of 2018. Mark 16: 15, "He said to them, 'Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.' I want to share His love.

I have lived a life that I was not always proud of, living selfishly, doing things my way and making bad decisions. I do not have to carry guilt because Jesus washed me clean. When we repent and accept Jesus, He forgives, and forgets, our sins. Hebrews 8: 12, "For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more." I thought of this as we sang, “What Mercy Did For Me”. “I thank You Jesus You washed my sins away And now I'm living, and I got forgiven You came to set me free And that's what Your mercy did for me…” I still fight, argue, whine and get mad with God, like any kid. I try to continue to grow in Him.

I made this commitment to God and I will never be able to write enough about how I love doing life with Him! He, constantly, brings me things to write about whether it is something I am going through, a song, a sign, nature, etc. Oftentimes, I hear God in the middle of the night and I get up to write. I want others to continue to grow in their relationship with God, see the blessings all around them and know they are loved, forgiven and are His beloved!

The blessing has been for me! I can't imagine going through these last couple of years without writing my daily blog. God’s Word encourages me so I can share that. Pastor Andy Lambert said, “When our gifts and graces meet God’s calling that is a sweet spot!” This has been a blessing for me. Thank You, God, and thank you too!
