The Change

25 Feb

I was a captive.                                    I am free.

I was hurt.                                              I am healed.

I was angry.                                           I am at peace.

I was longing.                                        I am satisfied.

I was desperate.                                   I am filled.

I was suffering.                                     I am rejoicing in Your presence.

I was cruel.                                            I am forgiven.

I cursed others.                                   I praise you, God.

I hated.                                                    I am touched by the love of Jesus.

I wanted to die.                                   I want eternal life.

I was haunted.                                     I am released from torment.

I was everything.                               Jesus is everything.

I was an easy druggie.                     I AM a child of God.

Thank you Lord for saving me from the person that I was and changing me into who I am now.

I love you. You are my King. You are my everything.

I am humbled by your presence.

I am astounded by your grace.

I am freed by your mercy.

I am in love with you Lord.

You are my everything.

Peace and Quiet

29 Nov

Last week I was feeling overwhelmed and stressed out. The long Thanksgiving weekend couldn’t have come at a better time! I was able to relax with my husband and spend some time doing nothing, which was exactly what I needed. Time to not do homework, not do any work, just let my mind rest.  What was even better was how after my last blog post, where I shared how overwhelmed I was, several people prayed for me and I really felt God’s peace come over me. The next day, I was able to pray for someone else who was in need of prayer and I felt so grateful for God using us to help each other!

This morning, my friend shared a message with me from 1 Thessalonians 4:11-18 and I am going to share it with you.

Make it your goal to live a quiet life, minding your own business and working with your hands, just as we instructed you before. Then people who are not Christians will respect the way you live, and you will not need to depend on others.

And now, dear brothers and sisters, we want you to know what will happen to the believers who have died so you will not grieve like people who have no hope. For since we believe that Jesus died and was raised to life again, we also believe that when Jesus returns, God will bring back with him the believers who have died.

We tell you this directly from the Lord: We who are still living when the Lord returns will not meet him ahead of those who have died. For the Lord himself will come down from heaven with a commanding shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet call of God. First, the Christians who have died will rise from their graves.  Then, together with them, we who are still alive and remain on the earth will be caught up in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. Then we will be with the Lord forever. So encourage each other with these words. 1 Thessalonians 4:11-18
