Getting Pulled Over….

Today I was driving by someone that just got pulled over and I couldn't help but wonder why did that cop choose her. I mean come on, we all know on the highway there are thousands of us speeding so why did that cop choose that lady out of everyone. Then I got to thinking why did God choose me? There are thousands/millions/billions of people in this whole wide world and yet He still chose me? Have you ever thought that? Why God? I mean I’m so low on the totem pole, I'm just your average girl who tries to live her life the best way I can, and I mess up a lot. Yet, God chose me!! He thinks about me. He is jealous for me. He wants me to be his image-bearer. But that is not the best news…. He chose you as well…whoever is reading this right now God is thinking of you and loving you! This weekend has been a very emotional weekend. But I will write more on that later, lets just say for a girl who usually keeps her emotions in check lost it this weekend! :) Major tear fest! :) I love you, Lord, and again Thanks for the reminder of your plan and that you are in control!!

Agents for Christ

I was once dead in my sin, but Christ gave me life! I needed rescue! Before Christ I was nothing and I now have a savior in him! He is my restorer and rescuer! I want him to be in the center of my life. Truth…does this always happen. No, for you see “There is no one righteous, not even one” Romans 3:10 I am one of those. I’m a sinner and sometimes my heart runs away, but even though I forget to sometimes look up and see my rescuer, He is still there watching over me waiting for my eyes and heart to open again to see him. He never leaves me. Even when I sometimes feel like the seed that fell among the thorns, who hears and knows the word of the Lord, but gets choked up with life’s worries, riches, fears and pleasures Jesus is there to rescue and bring me to my knees and realize he gave the ultimate sacrifice and wants me to just LOOK UP and place my trust in him. To realize He loves and wants to give me all the treasures in the world.

He wants us to do something. He wants us to move into action. Isaiah 58:6 says it all. Read it and then read Romans 3:22-24. It’s simple He wants us to help those who need help and to share His word with the world. He wants us to be the light not the darkness. He wants us to move, not to just sit, but to move into action. He wants the world to not only see and understand his sacrifice, but to put that sacrifice in our hearts!

My goal is for the world (friends, co-workers, family everyone I meet) to see the Lord’s light in my heart! Am I going to be a speaker, a singer, a pastor, a writer, a missionary, a leader, probably not, but I can be a friend, a sister, a daughter, and a co-worker. The Lord wants us to be a light and to shine brightly like the sun for his presence. It’s not an easy road, but with the Lord’s grace and mercy we can all take a stand and say “Yes” to the Lord’s will. He holds the future in his hands all we have to do is trust in him and he will be there. “Here I am” says the Lord.
