It is so good to say what we are thankful for sometimes. So here is another what I am thankful for post!
I am so thankful for God’s life changing, awesome, powerful, living word! I have been spending more time in the word lately, not significantly but maybe another half hour or hour just reading the word. I really enjoy having fellowship with my heavenly Father and getting to know Him more.
I have actually been making a habit of writing out my day hour by hour to help me stay on task. I am trying to manage my time more efficiently. I make sure to write down a set time I plan to be in the Word, pray, worship and fellowship.
It has lead me to have a stronger trust in God and this helps me to believing in His promises to me. It brings me more faith to believe in what He says about me. At church we are being taught about the Blessing Covenant.We are learning that we no longer live cursed lives but that our lives are richly blessed! Our Father is good and He wants only good for us because He loves us!!!
Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written that cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree), that the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the spirit through faith. Galatians 3:13-14.
Easter is coming soon and we get to celebrate one of the most powerful events ever to happen; when Christ was raised from the dead!! I mean we can celebrate that everyday but since becoming a born again Christian it has meant alot more to me. It’s not just a holiday and a time to get together with family. It’s most definitely not about a bunny with a basket of eggs and candy! It is about Jesus giving up His life so that we can live free in Christ
I really feel the Lord is leading me to spend more time with Him. He is drawing me closer to him. I’m excited to know more of Him. I don’t know if I will do any blog posts between now and Easter; I will just be lead by the Holy Spirit.
Be blessed everyone!
