JESUS came to free us from our sin. And believe me, you, I have one sinful nature.
Sin is not something I always contemplate. Sometimes, I’m in it before I realize I’m in it.
Kind of like munching an apple after being told not to.
And that is why I must continuously turn my will and heart over to the care of the LORD,
every minute of every day! And ask “LORD, open my eyes to what I need to see”
How overwhelming it would be.. to see too much too soon.
So I chant this well known utterance:
“GOD grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.” And GOD does open my eyes. And allows me to see exactly what HE wants me to see. And through CHRIST, I can and will make any changes needed. Not on my own strength but only by the strength of the LORD! And that is where I find serenity. All by the grace of GOD!
I am Deni, short for Denise. I grew up in a Jewish home, in a Jewish neighborhood and a Jewish family. In 3rd grade we moved. We moved to a mostly non-Jewish area.... that is where JESUS found me. I say found me because I yet had not acknowledged it, but would find out later.......by grace, HE HELD ME ALL ALONG, just a lil Jewish girl from Philly.
