Who is it that overcomes the world? Only he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.
-- 1 John 5:5
Nothing gets us through life like knowing and believing we are not alone. When we know someone is with us, in our corner, or is our advocate, we can do many great things. Fear and trepidation are lessened and our inner self really can come out at shine.
Hear the Good News, when we believe in Jesus, understand and know in both our head and our heart that Jesus came out of love for us, remains with us and empowers us, we will overcome anything. What does it mean to have this kind of faith?
It seems to me, that as we continue to grow in our faith these are some of the questions of life we answer yes to. Better yet, think about this: How is it that you can trust that God's grace is really there in your life? What is it life when you experience God's presence and Peace in your life? How have you been able to integrate your faith and your lifestyle together? What drives you to share what God has done in your life with others? What is it that you seek for your continued Spiritual Growth? What is the community of believers you are a part of like? Do you understand why you want to serve others?
As God is a part of our life, we do change, we grow, we come to understand who we are and where we are in creation. Enjoy your journey, for it is not a journey of confusion or frustration, rather, it is a journey of excitement, of love and of joy.
Gracious Father, thank You for the way You continue to be in my life. Without You, I do think I would be lost, grabbing at a rope, that I would not be able to see or touch. But You Father, You strengthen my desire to be Your child. You have opened my eyes to a life that is full of Your glory and joy. Help, please, to be able to share all of this to those I know and love. And when I run out of people that I know and love, let me meet more. Help me to always be growing in You, for I ask this in Jesus precious name. Amen.
