As I celebrate my Birthday, today, I must say, I am so grateful, how God our Father watches over us. Yes, I am grateful for such a loving and caring Father!
Looking back over the years, I never gave it a thought of what life would be like, when I turn 68 years old, but here I am.
1st and foremost I thank God for being in my life, and next to God, I must say, I thank 😊 God for my wife Gleneva, whom God gave me as my perfect help mate. She has always been there when times were tough, praying 🙏, cooking, spending 18 years as a teacher to our homeschooling family, all the while, taking care of our home and raising our children, while I was at work. There was a few years when this SUPER-MOM had to do all the above and still worked an outside job.
Yes, I AM BLESSED! With three adult children, and eight Grandchildren (girls). Each of them have a SPECIAL place in my heart ❤️ and I LOVE them all…very much. Many memories I do cherish 😍 and many more to come.
As I “live” my life ” in Christ”, it is my prayer and desire, until I leave this earth, to see each and everyone of my children, grandchildren and their children, become to know Christ as I have, and so far each and everyone of my offsprings have a love for God. I will say, I AM A BLESSED MAN…all PRAISE and HONOR 👏 🙌 be to God the Father, His Son, Jesus and the Holy Spirit who resides and worketh in me.
As the Bible states, if we believe in the Son, JESUS CHRIST, and He resides in us, we also have the Father, (GOD) who resides in us.
You can be confident that “if” you believe and receive Jesus into your heart you also have the Father with you. His Spirit resides in you as a believer and will teach you all things that are true.
As we open our hearts to the very presence of God and allow the Holy Spirit to take full reign in our lives, we will desire more and more of Him and will become obedient to His Word.
God desires a relationship with His creation, but it will ONLY come through the saving knowledge of His Son, Jesus.
Again, let me say, when you receive Jesus you receive God in your life and this relationship with God will come through His Son and the working of the Holy Spirit.
How exciting it is to know that we can actually talk to our Creator and know He hears us. Through this relationship we can live in a life of perfect peace.
Today I rest in peace, knowing that no matter what happens in this life, I WILL ENJOY AND HAVE AN ETERNITY WITH GOD, my Heavenly Father and my Creator.
It is my prayer that ALL who reads today’s thoughts will receive this same peace and assurance in their heart and life.
Another birthday and a year older brings me to the realization that life is just a vapor in the past and the future of eternity is just around the corner.
Today is just a moment, that is here today, and gone tomorrow but I truly know in my heart, for I am at perfect rest and have peace of mind that I will forever live with Christ and my Heavenly Father.
WHAT AN AWESOME ASSURANCE to know the PEACE of Jesus, God and the Holy Spirit resides in me, guiding me through this life into the life hereafter forever being with them.
What an awesome thought to know in my heart and a peace that goes beyond my own understanding.
YES, THIS PEACE AND ASSURANCE CAN ONLY COME FROM RECEIVING JESUS, GOD and the HOLY SPIRIT into my heart.
Thank you Jesus for dying for me and becoming my Savior. I now can be assured of a better life and eternity with you and my Creator, God.
Thank you Heavenly Father for sacrificing your Son for me so I could have a relationship with you, God.
Wishing you all a blessed and favorable day.
As always, love in Christ Jesus,
