Lessons in God from a toddler 

​I didn’t get baptized until I was 28: so noticing God’s goodness is new in my life!

(Not church— God) 

* I’m a middle-aged adult toddler hungry for the word of God

I keep thinking he’s going to leave me 

No matter how much I read my Bible I can’t find it…. 

You know the part where it says what I will do to make him leave

like everyone  has before 

I keep thinking it’s all going to go away that’s he’s gonna stop taking care of me when I make him mad. 

That’s the thing about God’s love I dont think I can mess it up, (as gansta as I am lol) 

I worry because I know I’m going to fall,  

But now it’s like he catches me right before I land. 

“I never  had anyone love me quit the way you do,

You know everything I do 

And I’m still good enough for you! ”

(Approval from you, knowing my flaws has been the best thing that’s ever happened to me.)

HOPE ….

I believe they call it ???

Grace

Friends


You are better off to ha e a friend than be all alone, because then you will get more enjoyment out of what you earn. If you fall your friends can help you. But if you fall without having a friend nearby you are really in trouble. 

Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 cev

Everyone one needs a friend some one that will over look our inner beast. Everyone needs a should sister or kindred spirit.

Dear God,

thank you for the friendship in my life. They are such an encouragment.

Amen

No matter what we’ve done.

If we confess our sins. He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from  All unrighteousness. 

1 John 1:9 Nasb

No matter what we’ve done father God can repair, restore, and revitalize the remnant of our lives for His higher glory.

It’s true. Believe it.

Then act like you believe it.

Look at your Biblical examples

  • Rahab the harlot 
  • David the murderer
  • Jacob the deceiver
  • Peter the betrayar 

All made Terrible choices that resulted in henuious sin. Yes the were guilty.Yet they refused to wallow in guilt in their mistakes. Instead they rose above the guilt and moved forward to God. 

I never in a million years thought I would get over the guilt. But I’m at a place now where all I can do is run towards God. It’s like him and I have been getting to know each other these past 3 years. I keep waiting on Him to fail me almost challenging Him at times. Yet his still has mercy on my soul. 

Protecting my family. Under his wings I feel the grace I need to be one more righteous. I strive to please Him everyday. And I always fail. Some of my actions praise worthy some not so much. But I am absolutely confident God will complete his work in me. 

Philippians 1:6New International Version (NIV)

being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.


Dear God,

Thank you that when I confess, you forgive a d cleanse from all unrighteouness no matter what the sin. Please help me to have co fidence and peace and move forward in that truth.

Amen

Ephesians 3:8

​This is my life work: helping people understand and respond to this Message. It came as a sheer gift to me, a real surprise, God handling all the details. When it came to presenting the Message to people who had no background in God’s way, I was the least qualified of any of the available Christians. God saw to it that I was equipped, but you can be sure that it had nothing to do with my natural abilities. And so here I am, preaching and writing about things that are way over my head, the inexhaustible riches and generosity of Christ. My task is to bring out in the open and make plain what God, who created all this in the first place, has been doing in secret and behind the scenes all along. Through followers of Jesus like yourselves gathered in churches, this extraordinary plan of God is becoming known and talked about even among the angels!

Ephesians 3:7‭-‬8 MSG

http://bible.com/97/eph.3.7-8.MSG

Often I feel under qualified to talk about God as boldly as I do because I am the least of all the Christians I know. At times I have no actual planning to what I’m saying. The Holy Spirit handles all the details. I find myself drawn to people with no background of God’s ways. For I was just as surprised as Paul when I received the gift of the gospel.

Here I am daily speaking of things that are way over my head. Yet God always provides the right scriptures, wisdom and revelations right on time.
I can’t help but tell others about the peace and joy I’ve found in Jesus. It’s the best thing that has ever happened to me.
