“Therefore let us move beyond the elementary teachings about Christ and be taken forward to maturity, (…) And, God permitting, we will do so.” Hebrews 6: 1, 3
I “celebrated” my 66th birthday in February; I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior when I was 9 years old. It has been almost 57 years yet often I think it has been one step forward and two steps back in my spiritual maturity. I know that God NEVER lets us down so I am seeking an answer to living in the love Jesus. My first thought was “find a book” but then I almost audibly heard God whisper “the secret is IN ME.”
So, I’m making a conscious decision to pray more; to seek time with the Lord; to feel His love and learn His heart! I’m packing a spirituality backpack with the confidence that I am valued by God, the knowledge that HE deeply cares about what is on my mind, and an open heart to mature in faith, hope, and love!
The Lord desires more time with me; is that incredible or what? He loves me – just as I am – and has plans to mold me as only the Holy Potter can; from a cracked-pot into an open vessel for His service!.
Beautiful Lord, Wonderful Savior; I know for sure all of my days are held in Your hands
Crafted into Your perfect plans
You gently called me into Your presence, guiding me by Your Holy Spirit
Teach me dear Lord to live all of my life through Your eyes
I’m captured by Your holy calling. Set me apart.
I know You’re drawing me to Yourself, lead me, Lord. I pray
Take me, mold me, use me, fill me; I give my life to the Potter’s hand
Call me, guide me, lead me, walk beside me; I give my life to the Potter’s hand.
