God’s Living Letter Process

Updated on November 13, 2012
Source


As representatives of Jesus Christ, we are called to present ourselves as a living sacrifice. Our lives may be the only bible or spiritual letter that others read; therefore, it behooves us to get in alignment with God’s will and ways, receive His love and correction, learn the lessons, grow and press forward, brightly yielded. The following is an expression of my living letter experience:


My living letter experience


My life as a Living Letter
was prewritten before time began,
by my omnipotent, omniscient Creator,
the omnipresent great "I AM."


God called me to repentance,
just as I was; there was no need to prepare.
God provided me the gift of salvation
when I confessed, believed and received His Love–
unconditional and rare.


It's been a "learn as-I-go" process
that I often tried to control while struggling through what I heard.
At times, frustrations mounted when my growth stagnated
or when my living fell short of God's holy word.


I have learned that: I don't have to know the details,
figuring out how or what to do next.
It is God, who orders my steps and makes my way successful,
orchestrating my world to ensure I am blessed.


I have learned to repent and surrender daily;
it is by His power I am transformed and made new.
Under God's anointing, I walk in His favor
radiating His light in everything I do.


I’ve learned to be satisfied and complete in Jesus
by committing to a daily, quality, quiet time.
I experience intimate, sweet and loving fellowship
that has strengthened my spirit and developed
a confident, peace-filled mind.


I am learning to trust Jesus and reflect His image
of self-less service throughout my life.
As a Living Letter, unfolding to a divine prewritten outline,
I decided to make godly choices that victoriously fill in the blanks.


(Psalms 139:16) "Your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained
for me were written in your book before one of them came to be."

Be blessed,

Jo Anne Meekins

      Thank you Mother of Nations! You brought this back to my remembrance just in time to include in the 3rd volume of my Living a Vocal, Valued and Victorious Life series (How To Know God Better & Love Yourself More).

      God Bless You too!

      Wow! Thank you so much for such a quick response. I just posted it and then realized I had left out two verses and the scripture reference when I was looking at another poem I wanted to post. I was surprised to see a comment so quickly, but very grateful. You motivated and inspired me with your prompt lovely and affirming comments.

      Be blessed.

      Beautifully said! Well done. Our life is a letter. I like the way you use the word "behooves." Yes, we should, and it is necessary to align ourselves with God's will and way if we want his blessings. Wonder how my letter reads? Thank God for your letter!
