A testimony of ‘time’. What is your testimony? You woke up, ate, went about your day, you are back getting ready for tomorrow… Reasons to praise The LORD!
Were you moved to say, do, not speak (be silent), pray for and about something? You spoke to your Father. It was not so difficult, was it? At times it is difficult to believe that The Essence that instituted life and made the universe can be “spoken with!”
There is a part of us that may hold back; “What will people say?”, “What am I doing?”, “Is this right?” Hold up! I did not call Him “Friend” but rather “Father.” Can you be a ‘friend’ to and with your Dad? With time and advance in age, experience and achievements it becomes easier. But, he is still your Dad, I am moved to say “Daddy”, but we know that is an infantile way of referring to male parentage, why? Matthew 23:9 “ And do not call anyone on Earth ‘father,’ for you have one Father, and He is in Heaven.” This is complex; phonetically in the English language there is a difference between “father” and “Father.” Going back and examining the original text “who I came from”, “a part of who I am” is a brief description of the original translation. Does “Creator” make a difference? We can look at this briefly referring back to it’s initial usage through the ages, but we DO come from a source to which we are journeying, Amen
So, I will ask, how was your day? Time for testimonies. “You won’t believe…”, “This happened…”, “That happened…” I believe you! Pray tell.
You are supposed to share.

And they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they loved not their lives even unto death. Revelation 12:11
Father, I praise You for today, the blessings, my life, ALL that has happened. Father, I give You glory, praise and adoration. Where I stepped wrong, I confess and ask that You forgive me as I allow passing blows to roll off. They are temporary and in You, I have eternity, teach me Love that I may shine You in all my ways, Father I ask for comfort as I rest, I am all Yours; take me, use me, fill me with Your Spirit, Amen
