The New Faith..

Good morning all-

I hope all is well with you.  As I sit down to write this morning I have already had a cup of coffee, biked for 2 miles and listened to Bill Winston Ministries.  It's been a glorious morning.  I have about 10 minutes until I have to leave for work but this one thought is streaming in my head and I just couldn't hold it in anymore.  The thought is:

I love the Lord my God with all my heart, all my soul and all my mind! 

I woke up praising my savior and as always hoping I don't screw up His amazing teaching in my life.  I have been renewed and my faith restored, not in people, but in Jesus.  I'm so glad for what He has been doing in my life and the lessons I have learned.  My faith is stronger then its ever been and I feel stronger than I ever have.  I'm empowered and I am the Lord's child.

I don't know what the day will hold today but I do know that Jesus is with me every step of the way.  The things that used to be so important to me are gone and replaced is a sense to love people.  That's really all I want to do.  I want to spread the love God has shown me to the world and I want to be known as someone that has great faith.  I've always had it for others but now I know that the faith I believe for others lives in me.  It has been tested and I would be wrong if I didn't say it was a painful lesson but in it's place is an understanding that I can't do anything alone and that Jesus is walking beside me.

I'm grateful for this journey even if its painful.  I'm grateful that I can love but I'm most grateful that my God believed in me enough to set my feet on the path toward him and continues to mold me and make me His.  I'm amazed, humbled and so very grateful.

My prayer for you as you read this is that God will become the Lord of your heart and that your faith will be restored, not in man, but in Him!
