He Speaks To Me

A couple of weeks ago, I was doing some web browsing and I came across this site:  Faith Sisters.  I immediately saved it but with my crazy summer and getting ready for vacation I couldn't really sit down and read it.  Well, I finally had a chance to sit down and read it.  All I can say is "God is amazing!"  He has really spoken to me through this site.  Over a year ago, I was going through some really hard times; which I have a shared with very few people.  One day I will share my story as I have a duty to God to do so.  Had I not turned to God, I'm not sure if I would have ever gotten through.  But what we can not do...God can!  God pulled me out of that darkness and I felt a happiness and peace like never before.  

Well, these last few months, life got really busy and I was pushing the Lord to the side.  There is a song that I heard once on  the radio while driving that talks about "Drowning in forgetfulness"  That is what was  happening to me.  I don't want to forget what the Lord did in my life nor do I ever want to live a life without him in it, again!  

So as I was reading through the Faith Sisters blog, I knew God was speaking directly to me.  God is great!  This week's scripture is on the word "Believe".  As I read through her lesson, the following quote really got me..."We as believers can do more damage to our Lord than an atheist.  Don't tell 'em you're a believer until you want to act like a believer."  Ouch!  I wanna live as a "believer" and I pray to God to always guide me in the right direction and to help me always make the right decisions.  I worked on this week's challenge so that whenever I need to be reminded, I can just pull out this card!

Romans 10:9-10a
"That if you can confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.  For it's with your heart that you believe and are justified...."

God Bless You!
