Today begins my musing on God's Promises ... and the rich bounty of blessings that follow.
" I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full."
John 10 : 10
These words remind me of Jesus heart for me and His sacrifice for me. Salvation is about accepting a free gift of Love ... it is about saying yes to what is going to bring Life ... salvation is about coming with empty hands and leaving with a full heart ... it is all out receiving.
( an exert from my writings 2011)
Little Belle carefully placed the last blanket over the corner chair, leaving just enough gap for a door. Finally her most magnificent castle was ready for guests to come and have a tea party. She hurried down the hall to gather her friends. Sally and Lucinda were patiently waiting in the dolls house and she tucked them under her arm, as she whisped up Kittykat in one hand and her apron in the other. Back in the castle she seated them next to each other, along the velvety cashmere back wall and asked if they wanted milk and sugar in their tea.
Suddenly realizing that Tess was missing she ran back down the hall again to find her. Searching the floor ... lifting up discarded clothes ... pulling out the tubs ... looking for any glimpse of her shiny purple mane.
"Where was she?"
As Belle walked around the end of her bed she saw two glittering hooves sticking out from under the covers.
"TESS ... I found you!"
Pulling Tess free and skipping back down the hall ... telling Tess how relived she was to have found her ... then sharing her joy with the friends already gathered. They all sat down to the beginnings of a lovely tea party, in such a magnificent castle.
It is such a joy to be able to share stories with each other.
The art of knowing when to talk and when to listen.
Salvation is a beginning ... never forget your journey in life ... where you began and all the twists and turns since.
I would encourage you all to share a part of yourself with the world ... and ask your friends what stories they have to share ... be encouraged by what you hear and pass on God's Grace.
Be blessed and be a blessing
