Welcome to Psalm19:14…I am a middle-aged wife, mother, teacher, and most importantly, a child of the Most High God–Yahweh. My faith walk began as a child, though I did not know anything about a personal relationship with God. I knew there was a distant God and learned the bible “stories”. Late in my teenage years, I began attending a church that preached about a personal relationship with God, salvation through believing that Jesus died for my sins. I heard the salvation message, said “the prayer” and…my life was completely different…NOT! Was I saved? Maybe…there were some things that changed in me, but as I grew (ever so slowly) in the Lord, I kept thinking there has got to be more…I continued “growing” with the nagging question, “Is this all there is?” You see, while some things changed, I was still sinning (on a regular basis) but kept hearing about grace. Grace covers a multitude of sins (which, praise God, it does…), but, “Is there more?” “I feel like I’m missing something…”
And then fast forward 25+ years later, God said go…”but where?” I asked. I knew I was supposed to leave the church that I was attending where I was very comfortable…but very stagnant…God led me to the church that I am attending now. God and I had a few discussions about His choice…I had heard things, you know…strange people, downright freaky! Dancing in the aisles, speaking in tongues…who ever heard of such a thing! Well, I wasn’t going there but God had other ideas. I made the choice to follow Him, and my life will never be the same…Praise be to God! I began learning about things like I have a recreated spirit and the Holy Spirit living in me. I have the power (not my own, but His) to overcome sin in my life. Hallelujah! I also began learning about how God’s law is still valid for today…it has not been done away with! Praise Yahweh! I have learned and am still learning more and more and more that I either didn’t know was there or believed didn’t apply today in this age of grace. But guess what…there is more, much more, and I had been missing it all this time.
All this has lead me to start this blog with my thoughts and insights about how God has been leading me and what He has been teaching me through His whole Word…Let the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer. (Psalm 19:14) To God be all the glory, praise, and honor.
