Glory to Glory, Strength to Strength

It is amazing to think how 10 years flies by!! Yesterday, I celebrated my 10th spiritual birthday! I remember that day like it was yesterday. Standing up to receive Jesus in my heart at a campus bible study and listening to a message that spoke so deep into my heart that I could not help to see that God is real and that He was waiting for me to give my affections to Him instead of what the world could offer me, which was nothing but pain.

Reflecting on my walk with Jesus, I am overwhelmed by His continuous love and faithfulness in my life! Lord knows I am a knucklehead at times!! I am so thankful! I shudder at the thought of the person I would be without Him. These 10 years I have grown through some things and have been blessed beyond words! I know that there is still a lot for me to grow through and revelations for me to see. That is what I love so much about God, that I can never know Him enough and as I grow deeper in my relationship with Him. My love for Him grows so much deeper yet His love for me has always remained the same. But His love is nothing I can comprehend and even understand! It blows my mind!!

I woke up fairly early that morning and God had led me to Psalm 84:10-12

Better is one day in your courts
than a thousand elsewhere;
I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God
than dwell in the tents of the wicked.

11 For the LORD God is a sun and shield;
the LORD bestows favor and honor;
no good thing does he withhold
from those whose walk is blameless.

12 O LORD Almighty,
blessed is the man who trusts in you.

I would not trade one day without God for anything because in my very worst days, I still have hope and I know that God is with me and will never ever forsake me. I look forward to all that God has for me and I know that it is nothing but the best because as His daughter, “the Lord will bestow favor and honor; no good thing does He withhold from those who walk is blameless.” Let my trust always be in You!! LOVE YOU JESUS!!!


Happy 4th of July!

Today is America’s birthday!! Happy Birthday America! Thank you to all the men and women who served in the Armed Forces who daily make the sacrifice to lay down their lives for our freedom!! I am so blessed and thankful to be an American! As I enjoy good food and fellowship with friends, I will remember that our fine country was founded on Biblical principles. I pray today that we remember that and intercede that we come back to Him. God Bless America!!
