One Year Ago-Journal on My Faith Walk
Heres a personal glimpse into my faith walk: wrote October 2016 (update will be next post)
At the beginning of this month Joseph & me decided to start the Dave Ramsey Program again to stabilize our finances, 2 weeks later we found out that I'm pregnant (unplanned blessing n surprise), the day after David gets a fever sunday night and it lasts off and on until yesterday today was his first 24 hours with no fever. Yesterday Joseph lost his job of over 9 years- but that morning God woke me up with Romans 3:23 "For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard." That tells me we all sin and we pay the consequences for those sin but if you read on "24 Yet God, in his grace, freely makes us right in his sight. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins." That tells me yes there are temporary punishments and consequences but to those who remain faithful theres eternal Joy so no hopeless situation and no bad news can take that away from me!
God has a way and a plan for us! He's already there ahead of us making the path for us our job is to stay on that narrow path of Faith in Christ, remaining in Him, He becomes our strength when we are just too weak to deal with life today and our Spirit when our hearts been broken again by disappointment and despair. Im sharing this to share my faith with you today that where there's faith in Jesus theres always a way and you never need to turn in your faith badge and give up and give into the desires and temptations this world offers because the price for that is eternal suffering of your Soul in Hell.
I want all my friends and family to live in the Eternal Hope and Joy found in Faith in Christ. I know that this post will offend some, but I hope that it encourages many more. My husband and me already had a plan for him to be a ft driver and that's what he's doing now so we will be okay because our God provided the way already. He's also looking into other jobs with hourly pay just in case the driving ft doesnt pan out. Today I'm feeling pretty nauseas and decided to stay home for the 3rd sunday in a row not because Im less Christian but because my flesh needs rest now if I was more faithful and stronger I'd overcome and go to church anyways and my husbands not going because I'm not going which is his flesh I'm telling you this because I'm just a small struggling person maybe like you are I don't possess anything greater than you I sin, I fail but I always stay in Him and that's what we have to do keep Jesus in our hearts and our homes or the devil will come in and possess us.
I shared this above post on a dave ramsey budgeting group and after 28 likes, several encouraging comments, and a few people who were highly offended the post was removed. Our choices have consequences and some people don't want to hear that truth. Hell is real and those who chose to live in sin and away from God will go there. I'm sorry if that offends you but it's the truth and the only hope that I see in this world is my trust and faith in Jesus Christ; He's my rock and my strong tower in this crazy broken mess of a world we live in.
Blessings in Christs Love,
