♫ I'll tell you the best thing I ever did do, I took off the old coat and put on the new.. ♫
I am so blessed to be a child of the King! Everyday with Him is a new experience. Some days are hard and some days are easy but everyday is worth it!
The Lord has blessed me with so much! I am forever thankful for everything He blesses me with. He gave me a roof over my head, food on the table, a wonderful family, the best parents anyone could ask for, some amazing friends, a wonderful church and an amazing pastor! He has blessed me with everything I need!
But more importantly than all of those things, He has blessed me with His unconditional, undying LOVE! He never ceases to amaze me. I don't deserve anything He has given me. Especially His mercy and grace. But He still gives it to me.
"Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows." -Matthew 10:31
If God cares enough about the sparrow in the air to provide their every need oh how much more does He care for HIS children!!
I am so beyond thankful that I was chosen by God to be His child. I am so glad that He loves me despite my failures.
I don't see how anyone could deny Him..
Look around... He is evident in everything on this Earth. His creation is beyond beautiful.
"In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was dark and without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness." -Genesis 1:1-4
"But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light:" -1 Peter 2:9
"Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house." -Matthew 5:14-15
God has called His children to be a light to the world, to stand out and be a witness for Him. In Genesis 1:4 it says that "God divided the light from the darkness." So we must be completely set apart from the darkness of this world. "what communion hath light with darkness?" (2 Corinthians 6:14) If we are trying to mix with all the sin and darkness of this world how will we be the true light He has called us to be?
Just something to think about :)
