My heart so tender, so touched with the Lord’s LOVE!
Watching Whitney Houston’s funeral today . . . MOVED TO TEARS!
LET THE BELIEVERS BELIEVE!
Who of you are moved by the tragic sudden death of superstar, Whitney Houston? I am moved beyond and beyond beyond. It really brought me to a point of wanting to take a closer look at life, not only mine, but life in general. I was born the same year as Whitney, and it shocks me to think that she is gone at such an early age. It is most highly indicative of our lives being nothing but a vapour.
Where is your life today? Are you right with God? I know that although I have believed myself to be right with the Lord, most of my life has not been. I have the utmost respect for my King; however, there are difficulties in life, setbacks, and all sorts of misunderstood circumstances which lead us to behave in ungodly ways—ways so ungodly that others look on in judgment and quick condemnation with their view on how certain they are of our not being a Christian. Of course, we all know that the Lord is the one who tries the heart, and none of us know if another is indeed truly saved, or unsaved. Let’s leave the judging to our High Judge. We will all face him someday. Let’s hope it’s not sooner than later; and, that we are ready to meet out maker.
While we may think that we can escape His mighty hand of Judgment, we can not, and will not. Our lives will play out like an x-rated movie before us, before Him. We are but filthy rags, the Bible tells us. We are sinners, and we are all in serious need of a Saviour. The Bible tells us in Ecclesiastes 12:7 that our body returns as dust unto the earth, and our spirit unto the One who gave it. Are you ready to meet Him? Are you living a life worthy of His calling? I know there are a few of you who might not see the inner beauty within me, or within others–the inner beauty that only our loving Lord sees–but know that it’s not for any one of you to look down your noses at another’s life . . . the golden rule tells us “do unto others as you would have them do unto you” . . . would you feel comfortable with others judging every move you make? Judging everything you do? Know that we are all sinners, and the Word tells us that there is NONE RIGHTEOUS, NO . . . NOT ONE. That’s me, you, all of us.
Oh, beautiful child of God . . . Let the Lord guide you into His loving arms to surround you in His gracious gift of mercy, and forgiveness. He loves us all so much, and He alone is the one whose arms we are to fall into when the world seems it is against you. Let us live our lives worthy of His calling, and full of purpose, so that one day we may all stand before our Lord and hear these words we should all aim and long to hear, “Well done, my good and faithful servant”. We do not want to hear, “Depart from me ye worker of iniquity, for I never knew you”. Let us sprinkle our lives with His precious blood, and move forward into His high calling and true sense of purpose for our lives. We are to touch others, and move their spirits to soar as they experience the knowledge and presence of the Lord. It is such a beautiful thing, to be in His presence. He waits, he knocks . . . if there is no one running to answer the door, he graciously turns to leave. He still loves you, but waits on you, for it is your decision, and yours alone.
REMAIN IN RIGHT-STANDING WITH GOD
LET YOUR LIFE PLEASE HIM! ♥
SEEK YE FIRST THE KINGDOM OF GOD AND ALL HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS . . .
