Today is Thanksgiving- this week I have taken a look at all the things I am thankful for. And today to top the list out is by far the MOST important one!!
GOD- My Father!!
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, that whosoever believes in him shall not perish but have ever lasting life!! John 3:16
In this scripture it tell me- THAT God gave his ONLY son, for me, my life, my family, my sins, my sickness- for me. When he gave up his son he thought of me!
I use to sing a song in church called "He grew the tree" It talked about how God created a tree from a seed, and he grew it knowing that his son would be whipped and bruised and hurt just for all to know that it was for them and then they would hang him on that tree/cross to die for US!!
I am so very thankful that the Lord has saved me by his grace!! I was saved when I was 5. Grew up in church and loved the Lord. I grew further away when I was a teen. Then with a life changing experience I was changed and I felt like- I was not 100% SURE that I was saved!! I was very young and did not understand that it was a relationship!! I then rededicated my life at the age of 17. I was then baptised for the first time when I was 21, after I had married B. My personal belief- you do not have to be baptised to go to heaven. You do need a relationship with him and know that you are "saved"!!
It is truly a relationship and NOT a religion. When you read the word of God you will see how wonderful his works are and totally understand that he has done so much for us and is still. He knows ALL your faults and loves you anyway. He knows ALL thoughts and loves you anyways!! He is ALWAYS there- when people let you down and you have no where to go- LOOK UP- Go o GOD!!
He is ALWAYS there and he wants you to want him. Although I have learned also- He will be there for you but, you need to be there for him too!! You need to talk and to pray to him daily, and go to church and get feed the word. When you live for him- your life will NOT be easy. It is hard to be in the world but not OF the WORLD!!
I am so Thankful that the country I live in I can pray, praise and fellowship about the wonderful works of our father- AND NOT BE ARRESTED!!! We live in a FREE country, when so many could not even say the name Jesus and be in trouble with the law. When you have all the comforts of this country- we take them for granted and Christianity is one I don't want to do that with!!
IF you don't know my Heavenly Father that I am talking about- Please send me a message and I will contact you and let you know all about him. Or go to your local Christian Church this Sunday listen about him and trust me he will change your life just as he has mine.
Anyone who can know how many hairs are on your head, surely know all about you and LOVES you so much!! Get to know him- He is great!!
