Oh yes, my brother Paul! Keep on keeping on! No looking back! Keep moving forward!
So many times, when the going got rough, I walked away from God. Until I finally realized that without Him, I could achieve nothing! I remember the moment so clearly - which is a miracle because my memory is.......well....not the best! :)
I was driving, weeping and praying for a situation. The LORD asked me, "So, are you going to turn away from me again?" I heard the hurt in His voice. It was a fair question as that was my moda operandi.
It was then I realized that my strength, my hope and my life is only in Him.
So, I responded with repentance, a plea for forgiveness and a renewed, PERMANENT commitment to my LORD and Savior! Hallelujah!
Friends, it's a journey. If you are at a point where
-you've turned away from God, it's o.k.,
He's waiting for you; He waited for me;
- you're angry with God, it's o.k., He can take it, sadly He took it from me.
He's there with you right now.
Take a breath.
Feel Him for just a second.
Then tomorrow feel Him for just a minute.
Continue to daily increase the time you try to sense Him.
From one who was previously an
LORD, thank You so much for Your patience with me! I'm so glad You stood by me! I'm grateful You had prayer warriors intercedeing for me! You are my LORD and Savior - and I'm grateful for that!
I ask Abba that You will remove all barriers first to my walk that I may know You deeper. I then ask that You be with my sisters who are angry, hurt and distrusting with/of You! Bless them LORD with prayer warriors, with healing, with faith, with love and joy! Remove any and all barriers that are hindering their walk with You!
I praise You, LORD!
