Thirty-six years ago today, I asked Jesus Christ to live in my heart.
I spent the morning of my spiritual birthday cleaning the church. As I was doing so, I realized how blessed I am that I was serving…..I could stop right there. How blessed I am that God allows me to serve Him in any way! Though I was a child when He saved me and should have known better, I have wronged my Lord, betrayed Him, neglected Him so many times. I debated giving up on Him, yet He never gave up on me and He still allows me to serve Him.
But, beyond being able to serve Him, I am blessed to be serving with my 7 saved children, who I am raising with my saved and godly husband. Along with my children, I served this morning with my mom…the one who raised me in a Christian home and made it possible for me to come to Christ at a young age.
My life hasn't been perfect, but I have been perfectly blessed. How I praise God for these 36 years as His child.
O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.
I had rather be a doorkeeper (or church-cleaner) in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness.
Glory to His name!!!!
