After another holiday of stuffing ourselves with all kinds of good things to eat, calories and sweet treats, I can’t help but think about how important our diets are. I’m not talking about the stuff we put into our mouths, but the things we inwardly digest from God’s
Word. There is more than the comforting taste of meat and potatoes. God’s Words are filled with gravy and magnificent desserts as well. A feast of humongous proportions awaits you at every turn of the page.
When we feel attacked from all sides, when our motives are questioned, when our lives seems like they’re going nowhere and when troubles seem to be piling up higher than we can possibly handle, how do we go on?
There are examples of people just like us in the Bible. There were the very wealthy, the physically disabled, the poor, the emotionally and spiritually challenged, those who felt no hope – people just like us. Their stories help us to face what I we’re going through.
God didn’t just send extraordinary people into the world to show His power. His writings about the average guy, with typical needs show up throughout His word. The Bible is filled with the struggles of many of heroes like David, Samson, Solomon, Moses and the greatest One, Jesus.
Don’t just consider the frosting when digesting these words. The bitter taste of sin is tucked within the pages as well. It’s important for us to see those words too. Without them, there is no need for a Savior. God tells us the most wonderful of love stories when He shares the gift of His Son to the world. Through Him, we will never go hungry again.
As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension.
I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog.
I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ.
My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.
