Today, I was thinking and wrote my 13 year old and wrote the usual: Have a blessed AWESOME day in the Shadow of The Wing of The ALL Mighty, Amen. Start thinking about colleges you would like to attend. I know it is early, but it is never too early to dream 😁
In fact, that is what I proclaim to all that read my shares, and ALL the children of God, Amen
We are headed Home.
Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through Whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand.
And we boast in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s Love has been poured out into our hearts through The Holy Spirit, Who has been given to us.
You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates His own Love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Since we have now been justified by Jesus’ blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through Him!
I go off topic for a quick second! We are a grain of sand in a family millions deep. Your testimonies are right around the corner. Hold fast onto Jesus! The Author and Finisher of our faith, Amen.
There are more than 900 million Protestants worldwide, among approximately 2.4 billion Christians.

This is mind blowing! One SINGLE Individual – Namely Jesus has changed The World! We can go deeper, His Essence created ALL, the seen and the unseen! What Created all? The Word of The Creator. They were not ‘Thought” into being, they were Spoken into being.
Ever known an individual who lives in their mind? Dreams, plans, wants…but doesn’t act?
We would if we do call them “Loser, failure, no-do-good’er, lazy…” it would not stop there! Look at the worlds most successful people; they followed a dream. No one said they did not make mistakes or have to remodel their attack on the steep hill to the top. https://facty.com/network/answers/culture/who-are-the-richest-people-in-the-world/?style=quick&utm_source=adwords&utm_medium=m-search&utm_term=richest%20people%20in%20the%20world&utm_campaign=FA-USA_-Search–who_are_the_richest_people_in_the_world-_Mobile&gclid=Cj0KCQjwl8XtBRDAARIsAKfwtxCGW5UtjGLiI6iOcH6NpFNaCE4h5zyr_O5KJYwW4sgv3hX2hf3R9JUaAtmUEALw_wcB
Richest? Jeff Bezos – owner of Amazon, feel free to read his history above. The individuals listed had dreams and set out to attain them.
Bill Gates? In his parents garage he started! The next door neighbors must have pitied his parents! Uhh! Who is living in regret now?
We could go on and on and on. These people had nothing but a dream to start, what did they do? We are here in October of 2019, we have a president here in the United States who had a grandfather who was an immigrant with wealth. His father was Frederick Christ Trump, a Bronx-born real estate developer, whose own parents were German immigrants. His mother was Scottish-born housewife and socialite Mary Anne MacLeod Trump.
The fact is that from father to son to grandson it has gone. To steer clear of politics or social norms; I simply wanted to point out a well known figure. Though many would not be aware of the name Jeff Bezos, he is who and what he is. Your opinion does not affect him one single bit.
The MOST amazing thing is that we are children of The Creator of the Universe! I will let that sink in.
We do not ‘tap’ that near enough. We live by faith and not by sight! A major passage explaining the meaning and examples of faith is Hebrews Chapter 11, and the basic meaning of faith is trust and commitment in God. It is taking God at His Word. The word believe, and its derivatives, is used 257 times, excluding “believer(s).” This is available for all to read. We are heirs, joint heirs with Christ! Wow! What I am writing I pray is getting through to you.
“Therefore, brothers and sisters, we have an obligation—but it is not to the flesh, to live according to it. For if you live according to the flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live.
For those who are led by The Spirit of God are the children of God. The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in His glory. “
So, we are in the family as co-heirs! Amen, Hallelujah!
