I am not one to share opinions on social media. I simply reserve the space for connectivity. I enjoy sharing what my faith means to me and how God has shown me my way since I was five years old.
I have thoughts about a lot of things, and in every situation, I find myself in prayer. I converse with God all the day long. I know I am a sinner, but I am a redeemed follower of Christ and have been offered forgiveness through his death and resurrection.
I see him at work in my life, and this allows this vessel to be filled, used in service, and never run dry...he is the Living Water.
I was reading the first chapters of Genesis, always looking for God in the divine words. In chapter 2, verse 17, but you must not eat from the tree of knowledge of good and evil, for on the day you eat from it, you will certainly die.
I embrace that God doesn't say "if" they eat from the Tree of Life, but for on the day you eat from it...
He has a plan. Our sins can't stop the plan he has for us.
Then, in chapter 3, we read the temptation and fall story. God said, You will certainly die, and we did die to sin in that moment. The crack in the vessel was created, and yet, God still uses it for his glory—hope, my friends, the hope that comes through God's plan.
God's design, the sacrifice of Jesus, and the Holy Spirit who comes forth to us as our helper...the Triune, Trinity. He is my joy.
