Wow, the last blog I wrote was May 22, 2022. It has been over a month -- and an eye-opening revelation about why it is so important always to be obedient to what God is calling you to do. You blink, and a month goes by without even realizing you have been walking through life in complete chaos.
God called me to this blog. I did not choose this because, quite frankly, people are vicious, and putting your thoughts out there for all to read and critique in the "cancel culture" world isn't easy. I have never really "feared man "before, which is a great trait to have when walking with Jesus. Ironically though, as my love and walk for Jesus grows, the more I am "fearful." Not necessarily in a sense most "fear man": my fear comes from worry I will not speak His Words properly or not be an obedient vessel for Him to use daily. Or worse, to lead someone astray because I am human, have limits like everyone else, and mess up… a lot. My biggest fear is my actions or words would lead someone away from Christ. Yes, I do know in the end, we ultimately decide if we will choose to walk with Christ daily, but as a person seeking the heart of Christ — you can't help but not want anyone to end up in hell. I don't care how" bad" a person is — IF they surrender their heart to God — repent and accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior — they are saved. End of discussion.
"Then one of the criminals hanging there began to yell insults at him: "Aren't you the Messiah? Save yourself and us!" But the other answered, rebuking him: "Don't you even fear God, since you are undergoing the same punishment? We are punished justly, because we're getting back what we deserve for the things we did, but this man has done nothing wrong." Then he said, "Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom." And he said to him, "Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in paradise." Luke 23:39-43 CSB
…..and this beautiful gem…

It's so funny that I started today’s blog wondering if it would just be an update about "my" life because I did not have a topic to write. I just prayed to God, asking Him to guide the blog as I have been doing since starting this new blog, Devotion.
It's funny how God slowly changes you. What used to be all about "me, me, me" is now all about God, Jesus, Holy Spirit, family, and loving my neighbors. I don't care to post many photos about myself anymore unless it's praising His glory for the people in the pictures. I do not care to write a blog about myself unless it is a testimony to His goodness. I really could care less to listen, watch, or talk about anything anymore that does not pertain to God. My closest friend is 99% centered around discussing all things God. The other 1% is random life things, but it's funny because somehow the subject always gets turned back to GOD (lol)! The closest people in my life know all I want to talk about is the many depths of God.
"Now God has revealed these things to us by the Spirit, since the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God." 1 Corinthians 2:10 CSB
There are "many depths of God" why do we need to talk about anything else? I swear people try to make God a human being. Yes, God sent His one and only Son in the FLESH to die and save us from our sins (John 3:16-17), and Jesus was God in the FLESH (John 11:25, 1 Timothy 3:16). But HE IS GOD!! We are not supposed to understand Him like we know "us" as human beings. HE IS GOD!!! I don't want a God I can fully understand -- HE WOULDN'T BE GOD!!!
There are many depths to God, and unfortunately, I missed out on the first 33 years of my life, and I do not plan to miss out anymore! I want to learn, know, and experience anything and everything He has to offer without any 'boxed-in "limitations. Religion and people had me putting rules and restrictions on God for years, and I refuse to do that again. I am in pursuit of God's Heart, and I want nothing more than to scream that at the top of my lungs at the highest mountain. I am HIS vessel, and I never want to be disobedient to His Call for me. Because it is never just about me, it is always about someone else as well. He is always using us to help others. He loves us ALL and is pursuing every single one of us. No matter how far you think you are from Him, He WANTS YOU — ALL OF YOU!!! YOUR WHOLE HEART FOR HIM!
Let Him love you. It is the greatest gift you can ever give yourself and the people you love: God's amazing love and grace.
I'm back writing this blog ya'll. Hold me accountable! I do not want to be disobedient again. And we all need each other's help!
I am to write about the goodness of God in life: all His wisdom, revelation, words of knowledge, prophetic words, and experiences He puts in my life (Psalm 145:21). For anyone to read or for no one to read, it does not matter. I need to be held accountable for what He's called me to do until He tells me to lay it down.
Email email@example.com for any questions, comments, or discussions regarding the blog posts! I love to talk all things God, Jesus, & the Holy Spirit! I encourage you to always reach out to me!
