“One of the greatest prisons people live in is the fear of what other people think”. ~Toby Mac
You don’t have to be imprisoned any longer, let God set you free. He will remove all the shackles that hold you captive. Whatever fear you have allow him unlock the door, and walk out a free man today! For it is by His grace we get to live in His mercy! Don’t let the world define you, let God define you. For what profit is there for man to gain the whole world, and lose his soul!
“Every breath is a gift from the giver of life”. ~S.Graves
I wake up with gratitude to my Lord and Savior for 47 years of the precious breath of life. Countless times God has sparred me when I was spiritually sick in my active alcoholism. As well this last year with my diagnosis of breast cancer.
He gives life, and He takes it away. God isn’t done with me yet, and for that today I celebrate the day He chose me to be part in this world February 17, 1974. May I be used by Him, May I be the difference today with the Holy Spirit which resides in me.
“I’ve read the last page of the Bible. It’s all going to turn out all right.” ~Billy Graham
For much hope resides here, and I just keep my eyes on the prize. I rest at the foot of the cross. I know that today is where I reside with God, and His will be done. Peace and serenity can be found in an instant of surrendering my will to Him.
Isaiah 40:31 – But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
7 years, and 4 months ago I fell to my bottom. I doubt anyone ever thought I would make it back up. The rock fell on me, and crushed me. I did rise back up, and with the mercy of God’s forgiveness. I rose with the help of His loving hand. With His grace I soar today! Mine is an ashes to beauty story, and I get to be here to share it today. I chose the little glimpse of hope, and I grabbed onto it with the little strength I could muster. It was then God carried me. Now I am soaring with the Eagles, flying high with God in control of my life.
