Sometimes I wonder why on earth anyone would choose a faithless life. Life is a wonderful and miraculous journey filled with joy, tears, agony and fears. Life is supernatural. Things happen all around us that have no correlation or direct answers. Why?? Because there is something so much bigger than us and apes or the big bang theory or whatever one may think.
All that I am and all that I have comes directly from my maker. JESUS provides me a way to walk in this world to thrive…. Yep… not just survive but thrive! Thank GOD for free will and thank JESUS for providing us a path. Every day I am amazed at how things seemingly fall into place. Yet, I must admit that my “oh sh*t” response is still an occurrence for me but it is becoming less and less.
The more JESUS fills me, the better my life seems to get. Seems like a no-brainer to me. But I guess by the grace of GOD I get it. And I do not mean I “get something” (although I do) but I mean I understand it, I have faith. That is where it starts….. the “F” word… and it takes only a tiny tiny amount and a choice.
And a few conscious words:
JESUS, I ACCEPT YOU AS MY SAVIOR AND GIVE MY LIFE OVER TO YOU COMPLETELY!
That is the first step. Not too hard …….
Is life easier without GOD? I am not sure, but if there are those out there who read this, I want to know… is your life easier or better without GOD? Is it about being right? Because if JESUS means I am wrong, I do not want to be right!
Today…. I was faced with another challenge. It had to do with business again. This particular challenge is something that has been going on for over 4-5 years now. (Talk about GOD’s timing not our timing)
Today GOD answered this prayer and PRAISE JESUS. It was completely orchestrated for GOD’s purpose as everything is. We just need to remember that. Let go and LET GOD!
I pray every day for GOD to be in my work, my company, my co-workers. I am probably a bit inappropriate by today’s standards in my choice of words during work. I will tell my co-workers I will pray for them. I will mention, I have been praying for that. There are those that I work with that are not believers. I am probably a thorn in their side. But I am hoping that by GOD’s grace that thorn will bring forth fruit for GOD’s purpose.
GOD chose me and I accepted. PRAISE GOD and Thank you JESUS for giving me life. I know I will have more rough times ahead but I always know that joy shall come in the morning.
Someone reminded me of Psalm 30. It is one that probably should be read every day. Here is part of it:
Sing praises to the Lord, O you his saints,
and give thanks to his holy name.
For his anger is but for a moment,
and his favor is for a lifetime.
Weeping may tarry for the night,
but joy comes with the morning
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.
