This week I have just been thinking on the 5 years I've been saved,,Last thursday it had been 5 wonderful years,(scroll down & read that post if you hav'nt already). On friday night we was in church-what a wonderful place to be on a friday night !The message was about what he "The LORD" went through for us before he ever got to the cross.It was wonderful...
It got me thinking on how lost people dont see it & how I didnt,,but I really got to thinking on people that say they are saved & not caring,,you see five years ago is not even a part of my life anymore ,& yes it is my past & I NEVER want to forget what I was before him..But I never want to go back,,but some do ,,go back to their old lives after living a christian life for a while or they say they got saved & never change.
I dont understand ? I'm not saying those people are not saved(we have to keep Lot in mind if the bible didnt tell us he was saved I would have to say he's not ) & I know people get saved & just get saved. Never do anything for the Lord or want to do anything for him .
Thats the part I dont understand, all he went through for us ,so we can be saved.
I owe(indebted) my life to him,my kids lives & everything I have, Its His....
As I write I'M going to include pictrues of my life now, how could I ever go back ????????
I got a phone call on yesturday from a dear friend I love some much,
Stevie Moon, --the one in white--
Look at that face,,does she look happy to you??
she called me yesturday, so happy saying do you know what today is?
"Today is the day the Lord saved me 2 years ago"
But you know why her day is even more special to me & my husband,
because she was saved in Sunday School while my husband was teaching,ok preaching! its hard for him to teach...I'm not saying that just because it was Jim,,but when you see God use someone you love it sure helps..you know??
I the past few weeks have been told & heard somethings,
that some old friends dont understand like,why cant you go certainplaces ?,why dont you come around ?, why do you stay away from certain people that you would at one time go around ??
They think I have been told by my husband or my Preacher I cant go & do these things..
Its not that,,,I DONT WANT to do the things that I did at one time,,
My life is Great!!
I love it ..
Do I get down & have bad days,? sure I do,
Does things go wrong ? All the Time,
Do I hurt over this kind of talk,from people that is suppose to love me & be my friends till the end ? Feels like someone has cut my throat,
But I cant go back just because of a bad day,or because they dont like who I am now.
I dont need the devil telling me,when I hear all this stuff,how much better my life would be if I would just go back.
And trust me he does just that,!,when I heard all of this a few weeks ago,
the next week we started having love ones put in the hospital, one a week for 4 weeks.
He started to tell me I could just go back, to drinking,to that care free world of sin.
And things would'nt be so bad . He was even telling me ,my church dont care what I go through, your friends now or just your friends because they have to be.
And YES I was thinking about it all,Why do I go on? What do we get out of all this? Could it be better ??
Does my church care like they say they do ????
I got to where I could'nt even pray,,
thats what the devil will do !!
But then last week came;)
And before I knew it the LORD was bringing back to my mind
5 years ago, when I was lost & on my way to hell, with the devil.....
I started to think of the cross, & how I could not have gave my son to die for those who dont care....could you???
I thought how I have seen sooooo many blessings,in not just my life ,but the lives of others.
How Stevie couldnt even hold her head up the morning she was saved,,but God saved her & now she can hold it up proudly & worship Him...
O WHAT A SAVIOR !!! is mine..
I thought of Jim, he didnt even like me, but now he will do anything for me.
My childern, they hate to be sick now because they hate to miss church..
How do people go back ??????? I wish I knew,,
I would hate to know,the devil got me to go back because of his mind games & I missed out on Gods blessings,on seeing another friend or family member be saved, or seeing one of these loved ones be healed because of church & friends prayers..
My prayer is Lord keep the devil away,
not just from me but from your sheep,
I love You LORD !
Each day that I liveHe gives more than I need,
I could never describe His goodness to me,
You ask how I make it day after day,
There's only one thing I can say,,
Its been a long journey but I have been Blessed
Walking with Jesus I have no regrets
He is so good to me & I must confess
The way has been long,but I'm Blessed
All that I need I find at his feet,
When I hungry he feeds me with manna so sweet,
When my soul is weary I find peace & rest,
All I can say is I'm Blessed,
Now I've had my share of sunshine & rain
Days filled with laughter/nights filled with pain,
But for every mile I've traveled this way,
The journey gets sweeter each day.
.........Tell the LORD today what he means to you.......you need it more than he does....
............you see he dont need us we need him !!!!..................:)
