Wow! It’s only been 22 years, and this journey has been amazing! God is so good and gracious.
I wanted to write this blog post to let each and every one of you know how thankful I am that you are my friend and fellow brother/sister in Christ! Thank you also for the blessings and well wishes you have sent to me today. But know this, I don’t deserve any of them.
I am nothing more than a hell bound, sinful human being that has incurred the wrath of God, yet saved by the precious blood of Jesus Christ, the Messiah! That’s why I look back on my life for the past 22 years, and see nothing other than God’s Grace, Mercy, and Forgiveness poured out upon my life. All this though has been made possible by the Redemption of my sinful soul.
That’s why I think Ronnie Freeman put it so eloquently in his song, “The Only Thing”. Truly, the only thing that is good in me is Jesus Christ. Here is the song for your encouragement: *
No doubt God has truly worked in my life these past years, but now I prayerfully move forward with a renewed hope, trust, and vision for what Christ will do through me in the future. Pray for me brothers and sisters, that I might be more and more effective in advancing the Kingdom of Jesus Christ, the King of Kings, and the Lord of Lords! My renewed hope comes from Galatians 2:20 which says:
I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
This has been my life verse for a long time, and I will continue to live by it ’till the Lord comes again. Again, thank you all so much, and I look forward to what God is going to do during the rest of my pilgrimage here on earth, and what we will accomplish together.
