Dear friend, ………..
Yesterday I told a woman I met briefly I was so thankful for the beautiful day and wonderful summer the Lord has blessed us with in New York City where I currently am for my streets ministry work. She lashed out about how wrong I was and what an awful summer of weather it has been.
A little while later, she lashed out at me again for believing the Bible is literal and true and for something I believe according to the Bible. Soon after, she took off. No doubt none too pleased.
In retrospect, it was like looking in the mirror at how I used to be. I was prideful, arrogant, self-righteous, judgmental, angry, and mean so much if not most of the time, I oftentimes justified my wrong attitude and wrongdoing and held onto it, and I believed only parts of the Bible are true.
The Lord didn’t leave me as I was. He saved me and transforms me day by day by His Spirit through His Word and has made me into the woman of faith I am today. Totally sold out, totally on fire, totally devoted to Him. Oh sure, I mess up. I make mistakes. I fall. I sin. But I’m on the right path. Repenting when I need to repent. Ever learning how to lovingly, humbly, faithfully follow Him in His love, in His strength, by His grace and mercy. FOR HIS GLORY.
Let us not remain as we once were nor even as we are today. Let us put our hearts and lives in the hands of the Lord and Bible and trust Him to turn us into the men and women of faith He created us to be. Totally HIS.
love & blessings,
“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. 2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” Romans 12:1-2
