I know what it means to be far removed from goodness, blessings, and God. As I have been there. I know what it means to be starving, poor, and scared, for I have been there. I know what it means to be alone, unprotected, unclean and oppressed. To live not knowing where, or if, there is a next meal in my future. Or making decisions based upon my limited degree of intelligence, educational level or street smarts for it is not a comforting way to sustain. But I have also been there, hoping that a new idea which I have just conjured up for surviving, either monetarily or physically, will be enough or a smart choice for staying alive yet one more day. I’ve known the feeling of embarrassment by asking for help and how it would make me want to die because I had to ask another friend or relative. I have been there and felt this pain and fear for far too long. Wondering will it be this way forever or until I die?
…Or is there liberation around the next street corner?
I know only one thing, now. This is the pathetic person I used to be and have since realized there is relief. I don’t have to accept this kind of existence, anymore! For I have found the answers, the help, the blessings, and brought them into my life–simply by choice.
My bills are now paid, with money left over at the end. I have a home in which to live. I have food on the table to eat, and am able to help (bless) others who are like I once was. I am now listening and following a higher intelligence than myself. I am not only born again, but I now live the part each and every day of my life, rather than just pretend to live it! I praise my God for what He has done for me and how He has changed my hurdles and stresses into victories and successes! I’ve listened as he coaxed me onto the right path, and attended to his direction, regarding those steps and decisions. I know it is my agreement with his for what I decide to do daily and moment-to-moment that changed everything for me. I (finally) allowed Him in the decision making process. He is now HERE every step of the way. It was so simple!
And now I am here, in the field of God-given abundance and hopeful promise. Thus, blossoming more and more, faith-to-faith and success to glorious success! All I had to do was listen, love, and obey.
In ending my letter, I want to express love (my love– and Jesus’ love) by sharing, my story of love and blessings with you. By inviting you to come to know the Father as I have, and not just accepting a mock salvation, but the idea of God-in-charge-and-piloting-your-course-and-destiny in-and-throughout the rest of your life. This doesn’t mean giving up all that you desire. Rather, it means desiring to “give-in” to His desire for you. Living in the blessing vs. living out of the blessing is the difference between poverty and riches. Living in the mansions we’ve only dreamed of vs. living from paycheck-to-paycheck barely getting by or crying the tears of loneliness that no one else cares to dry.
Remember, Someone Loves You……
Think about it.
