One Year Anniversary

I started this blog on 12/4/2012.  I am very blessed to be able to share God's word and what has been on my heart this past year.  This blog is not inundated with hits due to the volume of traffic that other sites have, but I believe that even if only a few people visit then I claim it as a victory.  It is not the quantity, but the quality. From the ladies I know from my church that read this blog to those of you on the other side of the world that I will never know, you all are special to God and me.  

I am very blessed that you all visit my blog.  The other day I looked at the different countries and just started crying, yes I cry often.  I have lost track of all the countries that have been here, I think it's close to 60 and counting, but I am amazed how many people visit from countries that are not considered Christian.  There are over 190 countries in the world, my goal is to have as many visit as possible.  I am thrilled that people are able to visit since I am not able to go out into the world personally, to be able to reach people on almost every continent is astounding.

I don't know where you are in the counties that I see listed.  I think about how God knows which town you are in, the street you live on, whether you are male or female, young or old, your race, your beliefs; He knows YOU.  Whether or not you know Him, He loves you.  He waits patiently for each and every one of us.  For those who do not have a relationship with Him I pray that you will invite Him in and open your heart to His love.  He saved me from my selfish and destructive life and gave me love that is nowhere else on earth.

Ever since starting this blog I have been under attack from the enemy.  My brother Bryan passed away in September, I have had several medical problems, most notably is my concussion in November.  Any time we are growing and spreading the Good News, we WILL come under attack from the enemy.  Satan does not want us to gain wisdom, nor does he want us to share God with others so they will also gain wisdom and have weapons to fight the enemy.  He wants us to feel that we are all alone, that we have no hope and that we are worthless, being in that place in my past I have no desire to go back to living that way.  If I am to continue to spread God's word then I would not trade that for having the enemy leave me alone.  The end game is far too valuable to let it slip away to an enemy who only wants destruction.

When I see all the countries that visit I pray you will know the following:
  • God and His amazing love
  • when you open the bible and start reading, it is your map for life
  • those who judge you are having any issue with pride, pray for them
  • God's peace
  • we ALL are imperfect
  • you are NEVER alone
  • you are accepted just the way you are (ignore judgmental Christians)
  • you are welcome into a wonderful large family
  • you are valued more than anything else on the planet
  • He wants a good life for you
  • He is waiting patiently for YOU
  • your history can give God praise because it's HIS story to give to others
