This is my Blog. I have a long, sometimes glorious, but more often difficult and painful story. Many years ago I promised God that I would say whatever He told me to say, with no regard as to the consequences. My lifelong prayer has been, “Whatever it takes Lord, to get me from where I am and what I am to where and what you want me to be; do it!” Such promises, and such prayers, result in many painful trials and tribulations. For me, perhaps more than for most…
I started this journey as a lost cause. You would have seriously doubted that even God could do anything with a man like I was. But God exceeds all our expectations and He works with even the most broken of human beings. He has brought me a long way and taught me many things.
What I know is that I am not perfect but God is. I am a sinner, saved by Grace; nothing more, nothing less. If it were not for the Blood of Jesus, I would bust Hell wide open. I most certainly deserve Hell… all the rebellion, all the sin and ugliness. But Jesus loved me and gave himself for me. By his Grace I am saved and headed for Heaven. I love Jesus… With all my heart and soul, I love Jesus.
Jesus is still working on me. I am not in Heaven and I do not have a perfect body or mind… not yet. These blog posts are not perfect. There are errors, there are mistakes. I do not ever intend to be, but it must be, that sometimes I am just plain wrong. Forgive me my sins and errors. If you think you know the truth, try to point me in the right direction… I do listen and sometimes, I change my mind…often I learn from you, the reader.
These posts are from a broken and contrite heart. If I seem arrogant or proud, I apologize; sometimes I am so certain of the truth of God that I stand firm in the face of that which I perceive as error. Standing firm sometimes looks like arrogance.
I hope that some of you learn, the easy way, those things that God had to beat into me… that is why I share.
God bless you, each and everyone!
