A New Journey's a sad and exciting time tonight.  Because of issues, that I couldn't seem to get fixed, this is the last post I will write on Chelle's Blog.  But because of that I have started a new blog, a new journey. And I have to tell you I am excited about it.  The LORD gave me a new URL (address), some new scriptures to go with it, and a new blog name.  I hope you all will join me over at my new place....check it out....and maybe even give me a follow.  I will be looking forward to hearing from each of you there.

Here is the link....hopefully you can just click on it. But who I said there is some issues going on!  If not just type it in.

Thank you all for all of your support and comments while I blooged here.

The Lord Merely Spoke

Psalm 33:6-9

The Lord merely spoke,
    and the heavens were created.
He breathed the word,
    and all the stars were born.
He assigned the sea its boundaries
    and locked the oceans in vast reservoirs.
Let the whole world fear the Lord,
    and let everyone stand in awe of him.
For when he spoke, the world began!
    It appeared at his command.

For a couple of weeks now I haven't been able to wrap my head around any scripture.  Reading the Bible has seemed kind of pointless to me.  It seems that I go through theses stages a lot recently.  I don't like it but it's a fact.  

Bad days....bad the Word....get closer to God.  Get closer to God....still have bad days and times....everything is better because you know God is in control.  This is what I should do.  So tonight I opened my Bible and read this passage of scripture.  Somehow it helps.  If God can merely speak the whole world into existence....then He can take care of all that troubles us.  

Just a good night thought before going to bed....

until we see Jesus....face to face

The Life You Got

I'm honored to be guest posting today over at Encourage 24/7.  For days now I've been trying to come up with something encouraging to write but it just hasn't happened.  So tonight I'm sitting at my desk and praying that the Lord will give me something to say.  I've started a few times and deleted them all.  I've flipped through scriptures....and nothing has hit me.  Until....

Psalm 107:2

Has the Lord redeemed you? Then speak out!
    Tell others he has redeemed you from your enemies.

This verse is for all of us.  As Christians we have all been redeemed and we all have a story to tell.  We need to tell our stories to all that will listen.  All of us are walking....talking....miracles!  You don't have to be a speaker....a writer....a singer....or anything else, other than just you, to tell your story.  

Before I gave my heart to the Lord I did many many things I'm not proud of.  For a long time I regretted that life.  Yes....I knew God had forgiven me but it was so very hard to forgive myself for those things.  Then one day I started realizing that until I forgave myself I wasn't going to really have the life that the Lord wanted me to have.  So....I went back (physically) to a few of the places where life went all wrong....talked to the Lord about them and forgave myself.  For the places I couldn't go back to....I just talked to the Lord about them and forgave myself.  You can never truly be free until you accept your past life and move on into your new life with the Lord.  I heard a line on a movie tonight that fits this well....

The miracle ain't the life you's the life you got!

Sometimes we look back and think about all that we missed because we didn't always do the right things. But, what I have found is how much more the life I have now really means to me.  Since I gave my life to Jesus it's so much fuller and brighter than anything I ever knew before.  The life I have now is the life the Lord had planned for me all along!  The people that mean so much to me now....I may have never known had my life been different. This life I've got now is my miracle!  I have had a crazy, full life and I wouldn't trade it for anything else because now I can fully appreciate all that the Lord has done for and given me.  

When Jesus died on Calvary He set me free from all of my sin and made a way for me to be free!  Jesus did that for all of us.  So if you have been redeemed....Speak out!  Tell the people around you....or the world if your a blogger....your story.   People need Jesus and you just might be the one with the right life story that will show them the way.

until we see Jesus....face to face
