Oh How I Love Jesus/Because He First Loved Me
Holy Ghost Revival on Azusa Street:The True Believers:Eye Witness Accounts of the Revival
" What a friend I have in Jesus," is the logo for my life! From the time God created the world up until the very present, he has been involved in the affairs of humanity. His love and grace was seen with Adam and Eve just walking in the cool of the day fellowshipping with them before and after their eviction from the garden of eden. He still made provisions for them as he has continued to do for us through eons of time. Just the way he created the world so that we could live and breathe in it. The right mixture of nitrogen and oxygen in the air that does not overwhelm us. The way that we can till(work)the ground and cause it to bring forth food to feed the world. All of his provisions, promises, covenants, were made for us to keep us in the way of righteousness. He is the Prince Of Peace and the only living son of the most high God who sits high and looks low, meaning he hears our prayers and he answers them and he sees our plights and intervenes. He is our righteousness, our healer, our shephard, our peace, our deliverer, our victory, our sanctification and so much more! He gave his life on the cross at calvary that I may live and not die in my sins. Every sin that is known to man was put upon him and he triumphed over it so that we could do the same and live holy, set apart for his use. Isaiah 53:5 of the holy bible says this:But he was wounded for our transgressions, bruised for our iniquities, the chastisement for our peace was put upon him and by his stripes we are healed! Furthermore John3:16 says: for god so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whoever believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life! I have had so many experiences with God. He has healed my daughter from sickness. He has comforted me in times of need, he has protected me from some dire situations that could have cost me my life or my sanity. He gave me peace when my father passed away, he brought my sister back from 5 strokes, he has spoken to my concscience in that still small voice, kept me out of the line of danger(he literally impressed upon my spirit to take another driving route because the one I was taking was leading me into a shootout. There was no way that I would have known trouble was right in front of me and all of a sudden I had the urgency to turn around and take another route.) Last but certainly not least he saved me, filled me with his spirit and I have not looked back. Sure I have faced many hardships, lost some loved ones, seen national and international disasters. I have cried over situations and circumstances and still do from time to time but what I have come to understand in my relationship with Jesus Christ is that my joy and strength lies within him. He gives me peace that surpasses all understanding, I'm blessed because I abide in christ Jesus. Blessed is what I am whether I'm happy or sad, scared or brave no matter the situation or circumstance. I don't believe in luck because luck is predicated upon situations or circumstance being in your favor. When you're blessed it dosen't matter whether the situation or circumstances look good or not because you are favored by God and his promises and provision. He is speaking into and intervening in your life contiually and you are backed by his grace and Mercy toward you! I could write so much more because my whole life is a testament of his love for me, there is just not enough room to write it all! I hope that somebody will get joy out of reading this. What I have written is not to offend anyone and I am not trying to be pushy in any way. This is simply me exercising my faith and testifying about the love of the living god and my lord and savior, God bless.
