This week’s blog is a little different. I have tried to faithfully walk with the Lord, through the power of the Holy Spirit, for over eighteen years dutifully and obediently. To be honest, I never did anything (prior to my true conversion) steadfastly for over thrity days at a time. I was not a consistent individual. This particular walk (with a living Savior) is the only thing I have ever done that has held up. It has proven itself to be the best thing that ever happened to me. When I began to seek the Lord for answers (to everything), he never once failed me.
Jesus is alive and anyone who tells you any differently is being deceived. There is no amount of money or fame that can replace what he fills your heart with. Do we stumble? Yes. But, at those times it is critical to pick yourself up and ‘keep on truckin.’ Grit your teeth when you feel life is unfair, has been unfair, and never seems to stop being difficult. Stay on your knees in prayer and he will see you through. I promise. If he did it for me, he will most certainly do it for you.
Lastly, I am attaching a post that I found on my Facebook page. The truths uttered are sound and lasting (because truth always remains). It certainly was worth passing along to you.
“People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.”
