Once Again

Once Again
June 2022

There are many great things in life to look forward to as one is graced with aging like completing your education, buying your first home, driving your new car, and even seeing your first grandchild. However, there are many other grateful but small things in this life, that one can appreciate.  For example, being able to dress yourself and make adequate decisions which can launch your life into a direction that is unstoppable and fulfilling with the boundless admiration of Jesus Christ. Knowing that His Love and understanding truly surpasses any definition that any book attempts to define.  So, it is now confession time because it is not until one is broken that one begins to see and comprehend just what is happening in one’s life.  

As taken from the Bible, in the Old Testament, and from the Weeping Prophet known as Jeremiah, in Chapter 18, verses 6-10, there it states that “Like clay in the hand of the potter, so are you in my hand. O house of Israel.  and if that nation I warned repents of its evil, then I will relent and not inflict on it the disaster I had planned. And if it does evil in my sight and does not obey me, then I will reconsider the good I had intended to do for it.”

My friends, and fellow loving brothers and sisters of Christ, this is where you should be shouting and going wild.  God had a plan for you, and he has brought you out of the horrible pit and set your feet on the rock of his Holy Salvation.  In other words, He has you on a wheel called life and He is going to adjust the speed of your journey until you respond to His pandemics of this life, and He is using all measures in your environment to form, shape, move, and create your world for His glory.

However, we just cannot and will not stop at this point, one must know and understand that Jeremiah wasn’t the only prophet that told us that life is wonderful.  Another prophet, from the Old Testament, who came from the Kingdom of Judah, is from the book of Isaiah, Chapter 64: verse 8, “But now, O Lord, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou, our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand.”

Truly after reading, praying, and meditating on these books from the Bible your life will begin to see hope, resolution, and revelation in knowing that life is worth living.  Our God is the only true resource that will give you all the potential to develop, devote, dedicate, and release areas of defeat that you may have been living frustrated in. Perhaps it is time to take another perspective of your world and ask GOD to realign you with the passion that you once had.  Get back on course and re-evaluate those days when you knew and recalled the Joy that GOD gave you. After all, Easter has come and gone, and He is our resurrected LORD.
