I have been told that I am “annoying” with my rants and raves about my faith. Although I do not mean to be annoying…. I cannot help but stir up your spirit. WHY?
Well, let’s look at it this way. I have traveled through my life and have endured many emotional, physical and spiritual torments. And along this path I am on, I was given many gifts.
Do I have sadness, SURE, I am human, BUT I have sunlight in the morning. DO I screw up, SURE, I am human but my REDEEMER gives me an eraser so that I do not have to carry that wrong forever. Do I suffer? SURE, I am human, but my suffering is temporary, for I have endurance from GOD who gives me strength in all things!
I have bills, worries, job stress, physical illnesses, pain, loneliness, and all the other array of crap that is thrown at all of us every day. BUT I have joy in the morning. Do you know what that means? I truly have already overcome ALL OF IT! I may have a fleeting moment where I wallow, whine, scream and cry, then I remember that GOD gives me all of these gifts and more.
So I will continue to be annoying, and I will not apologize. I am happy and excited. If you are a car buff and someone gave you the best car in the world, you would be bragging all over town about it. If you won the lottery, you would be all over social media about it and screaming off the rooftops. If you beat the new Xbox game after months of play, you would be feeling accomplished and happy. And then it will get old and that would be the end of that. BUT my gift never gets old, it is the gift that keeps on giving!
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.
