I am Nothing, without God
Sharing what God puts on my heart and my story to encourage and empower others to live fruitful & satisfying lives with Christ!
It’s about not giving up, not letting setbacks stop you from going forward. It’s about learning from all you have gone through but not dwelling in those things. It’s being grateful that you aren’t the person you were yesterday and tomorrow you won’t be the person you are today. Each day moves you closer to Christ. Each day is another day to grow your relationship with God and others. Every step forward there are more chances to share God’s love with those you encounter.
Those encounters can be as simple as what Abby did the other day at the bank. We were in the drive thru and she rolled her window down to tell the teller that her hair was very pretty. The teller couldn’t hear her, so I promised Abby to tell her for her. So when the teller gave me back my items I said, “my daughter wanted you to know you have very pretty hair.” The teller’s demeanor completely changed and she was so grateful.
“I don’t mean to say that I have already achieved these things or that I have already reached perfection. But I press on to possess that perfection for which Christ Jesus first possessed me. No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us. Let all who are spiritually mature agree on these things. If you disagree on some point, I believe God will make it plain to you. But we must hold on to the progress we have already made.”
Philippians 3:12-16 NLT
If it wasn't for God I would not be here. Seems cliche but it's the complete truth. I have come close to death a few times, I am a living testimony to God. I am far from perfect. I don't have all the answers. I do feel like God wants me to share words of encouragement and share the testimonies (stories) of my life. I pray that all that read what I write are encouraged and empowered to not give up, no matter what this life throws at you, and to seek God for wisdom.
