Welcome friends and family —

The great mystery of God. The truth of God escapes our human capacities. The greatness of God cannot be grasp by our human minds.(1). I have no special skills to explain God to you, what I CAN do is share a life experience with you. I know that I experienced a conversion, I felt a need in my heart for a missing piece. That missing piece was accepting Jesus as my personal Lord and Savior. I accept the scriptures as God’s Word for all to read and free to apply the lessons to our lives. A feeling of completeness is what I discovered in my salvation story. Trusting God and believing in God does not mean life will be without its share of pain and challenging situations. The Good News is we will not be alone in our pain or difficult situations, God’s promises are the foundation of our faith. It is from this base foundation we find hope.(2). That Hope is Jesus. The promises of God and his love are found throughout the scriptures.

— 1 John 4:7-9 —

“My dear friends, let us love one another, since love is from God and everyone who loves is a child of God and knows God. Whoever fails to love does not know God, because God is love. This is the revelation of God’s love for us, that God sent his only Son into the world that we might have life through him.”

— John 1:14 —

“And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.”

Lenten M•I•C•R•O Practice for today:

~ Detach – Day 34 ~ Set aside what you find yourself attached to for the day. It could be your phone, books, video games, etc. What space does this open up for you?

🔸 Prayer 🔸

O God, we are the heirs of the covenant

you made with our ancestors

when you told Abraham,

“All nations of the earth will be blessed

in your descendants.”

It was for us that you raised up your servant Jesus

and sent him to bless us.

— After Acts 3:25-26

Thank you for visiting my blog today, I am humbled and blessed by your support. Happy Saturday everyone! 😁

~Charlotte, Seeker of unexpected Comfort, Happiness, Joy and Patience.
