Happy Easter to both of my beautiful boys! God has blessed me with two lil' angels in my life and I am forever thankful <3 I never imagined how beautiful you could be and you both are everything to me! Love Forever & Ever, Mommy!
I have been having deep and profound conversations with a good friend of mine. He showed me this wonderful verse from John 13:7, "Jesus replied, "You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand." And it speaks volumes in my life and I am sure it does to anyone else.
And a girl wrote about the green light. I realized that every time I saw the green light, I always had my foot above the brakes. I always dreaded the red light and would slam it if it turned orange. And the majority of the time, the light would stay green. That shows how much I need to work on my faith in God. Letting go, and letting him take the wheel. I shouldn't dread and stress over things yet to come. I shouldn't spend my time watching for the tornados, especially while the skies are blue. "Why are ye fearful," said Jesus, "O ye of little faith?" in Matthews chapter 8.
He also gave me this phrase, "God is tough, but he is not blind." Jesus will be the one who will sit on the judgement seat and all the world will be gathered before him and his great wonder. He will be the most fair judge and all things will be revealed. Every act, every thought, every deed, everything done in secret will all come unto the light before his glory. I am sure we will all be put to shame.
John 10:7-18 (Beautiful Scripture) <3
7 Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.
8 All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.
9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
12 But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.
13 The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep.
14 I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.
15 As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep.
16 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.
17 Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.
18 No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.
