Good Morning Beautiful People….My Life Transformed by the Cross


good-morning-beautiful-people My life has changed dramatically since I became a believer and a follower of Jesus Christ. I had given my heart to Jesus as a child but went my own way and lived my life the way I chose for many years. I made my own decisions, used my own knowledge and did whatever I felt was best for me. Definitely not the way to go, definitely leads you down a negative path. One day while dropping my daughters off at Sunday school in my sporty gray Camaro, I heard a man talking about how Jesus had changed his life.  Somehow it captured my attention and I decided to stay and hear him share. My hair was wet and I don’t believe I looked like much of a church attendee. I found my seat in a pew near the back. I knew I wanted my children to have faith in God, so I was doing what I thought was best. I’d drop them off on Sunday mornings, but this particular day was different. I was totally drawn to hear this man’s story. I remember him saying he had felt hopeless. He had several people in his family take their own life, committing suicide and he had the same thoughts. He shared how the Lord helped him and he had hope once again. I remember leaving that meeting and thinking well maybe the Lord could help me with some things too. I went back to this church the following week and recommitted my life to Jesus Christ. That has been the best decision I have ever made. I love my journey with Jesus. I soon discovered there was a difference between the parishioners. Some came because it was a social thing, some came because their mother, grandmother and great grandparents went there and others came because they were truly followers of Jesus Christ. You could tell by the way some worshipped and how intently they listened to the word as it was preached that they were interested in knowing intimately the man that laid his life down for them. That was me too. I was a sold out born again believer. I began to study the word of God as the pastor told us not to take his word for it, to go home and check it out for ourselves. That was excellent advice and I did just that. I remember reading my bible and the Holy Spirit said you need to believe this. I thought really? Some of it seems almost unbelievable. I decided to believe and it has brought me to a personal knowledge of Jesus Christ and his word has become just like that song honey on my lips. I would never want to live my life now without his Holy Spirit living in me. My life was being transformed by the cross. As we celebrate Easter, let it not be just any ordinary day. Get to know the man that laid his life down for you. He is alive and well and his spirit will dwell within if you will invite him into your life. Don’t take my word for it, speak to him personally and read his word and let it transform your life. Don’t just go to church for social reasons or because it’s the right thing to do. Go because you want to know him, the man that paid a dear price for your soul. I will promise you, you will not be disappointed. Trials yes there definitely will be some, but he will bring you through. It really is true as the song goes Knowing you Jesus, Knowing you, there is no greater thing (listen on You Tube). Prayer: Lord I pray for every reader across this globe today. I pray they come to know you Lord. I pray they know you the best any person could ever know you. Lord, I pray by the power of your Holy Spirit you draw many to yourself. Let this Easter be different God in churches all across this globe. All the pretty dresses, nicely pressed suits and even the Easter bunny, there is nothing that compares to knowing you. I pray many that have walked away and followed their own path would come back to the fold. I pray for folks that never knew you Lord would begin the journey during this Holy season. Thank you for the cross Lord, thank you for the price you paid. Because you died and rose again, we can have life and life more abundantly. Thank you for souls this holy season I pray in your precious name Jesus, Amen. John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth and the life, no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
