As I write my memoir I am grateful for all that God did for me. He really is a God who answers prayers and cares for our every need. All those years ago, He was my everything. What happened? I don’t know why I broke off fellowship with the Lord. I didn’t stop believing in what Jesus did for me and knew I never would. Yet those years away, I was looking for love in all the wrong places. Isn’t that what we all are searching for? Yet only in God is perfect love to be found. God is love.
Although I did forsake my fellowship with God, he never left me. When I think of all the close calls when I walked in a different path, yet I was preserved. That could only be the hand of God.
I am truly amazed and so very grateful that God has gently and graciously drawn me back into the fold. He has called the scriptures that I once knew to my rememberance and I am singing the songs I once sang with renewed joy and adoration of sweet Jesus.
It is great to have that peace once again deep within in me and the assurance that all will be well no matter what comes my way. He has delivered me in the past from the grasp of the enemy and can do it again. He is an all powerful and all knowing God. He is merciful and only by his grace and what Jesus did on the cross for my sins can I truly live.
I recall the words of a song, “Because He lives, I can face tomorrow, because He lives all fear is gone.”
