I love spending my quiet time in the morning! God's Word never gets old... so many good things to find! I have been a Christian for many years, but I have not always lived out my Christian faith in a good way! In fact, there were many years I never really lived... I was just existing, always waiting for the "other shoe to drop." I "white knuckled" through life for so many years! It is crazy how you can be saved, know you are on your way to Heaven & yet not live with JOY!
Reading in Psalms 86 it says in verses 11-13... "Teach me Your way, O Lord; I will walk in Your Truth; unite my heart to fear Your name. I will praise You, O Lord my God, with all my heart, and I will glorify Your name forevermore. For great is Your mercy toward me, You have delivered my soul…”
God gave us His Son to die for our sins... He has done everything possible to show us the Truth, but we still have to decide to walk in the Truth! It is a daily decision to live a joy-filled, victorious life, or to live a life of defeat! Today I am choosing to live in victory & walk in His Truth!
Another reason I have a grateFUL HEART today is because my baby sissy is getting married on Saturday! So we have a whole, long weekend filled with family, love, & happiness! My sissy is 44 & never been married! She is marrying a man who is a little older than her & also never been married! They have a great love-story, which was so masterfully orchestrated by God! It makes my eyes wet just thinking about it & how over-joyed I am for them! So we celebrate Rick & Michele! Cannot wait to see all that God has for them as they walk through this life together!
So here is a sneak peek of the wedding card...
The jute twine I braided reminded me of the verse ~ “Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him. And a braided cord is not easily broken.” ~ Ecclesiastes 4:12
