PASSION~ FALLING IN LOVE WITH OUR GOD!
*desiring to be with Lord daily in His Word and prayer
*excited when in that quite place with the God of Creation
*joyful, joyful, joyful… ever rejoicing in His love and Truth
“I want deliberately to encourage this mighty longing after God. The lack of it has brought us to our present low estate. The stiff and wooden quality about our religious lives is a result of our lack of holy desire. Complacency is a deadly foe of all spiritual growth. Acute desire must be present or there will be no manifestation of Christ to His people. He waits to be wanted. Too bad that with many of us He waits so long, so very long, in vain.” A.W.Tozer

Seven years ago today, the Lord God Almighty, in His “unfailing love and mercy” saved my physical life. I won’t go into the tragic story, but I will say He put people in the right place at the right time to pull me from a burning building. They were not fireman, just two guys repairing my next door neighbor’s frozen sewer lines. They saw the smoke, broke my door down and drug me out. Coincidence–NO! God’s perfect plan–YES!
Months later, after grieving the loss of my mother, God reached out to me with the Gospel message through a local Christian radio program, followed by a song I will always cherish. At that moment, broken and filled with the sorrow of my sin filled; selfish life, I wept in repentance. I gave my heart to Almighty God through the forgiveness and redemption I received accepting Jesus death on the cross as payment for my sin! Now my life overflows with “Hope and Peace” despite the uncertainty and troubles of this life.
As long as I live in this earthly body I will sing praises to His name and live to bring glory and honor to Heavenly Father and Lord Jesus. As the days pass– I watch and wait for our Lord Jesus return! I will “Always Be His”.
If you do not know the love, joy, hope and peace that is available to not only you but everyone through Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection— here are some verses from God’s eternal Word that I pray will show you just how much the Creator God loves YOU.
John 3:14-17 ” … even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.”
Acts 17:25-30 “Nor is He worshiped with men’s hands, as though He needed anything, since He gives to all life, breath, and all things. And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; for in Him we live and move and have our being, as also some of your own poets have said, ‘For we are also His offspring.’ Therefore, since we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Divine Nature is like gold or silver or stone, something shaped by art and man’s devising. Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent,”
Revelation 3:20 “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.”
May you be blessed, thankful and filled with praise… ♥ Streim
