I have been so blessed in my life.  I often wonder, “Why me, God? Why did you choose me, when there are so many other better people around?”

I don’t think I’ve ever gotten a real answer to that question, but there is one thing I do know without question:

I don’t deserve to be a child of God. If I got what I deserved, my life here on earth would be one misery after another, just a foretaste of an eternity in hell.

But on February 27, 1994 a Christian in Florida, working under the direction of the Holy Spirit, convinced me that God would forgive all the horrible things I had done, simply because of what Jesus had done.  All I had to do was believe and receive.

Since that day when I was born again, I’ve lived in the Light, learning and growing by the grace of God:  stumbling and sometimes falling, but always with the assurance that My Father would be there to pick me up and set me on my feet again.

If you’d like to join the family and live in the Light, ask Jesus into your heart.  You will never regret it.

There was the true Light which, coming into the world, enlightens every man. He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. He came to His own, and those who were His own did not receive Him. But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God. (John 1:9-13)

    I agree. We are blessed. :)

    I’m going to skip out on the WFW this week and take some time to read everyone else’s posts, which I haven’t done in a while.

    Enjoy your reading, Rebecca, but fair warning: the youngsters will give you brain itch!

  3. Ah, yes. I, too, have been reflecting on this same topic; one huge realization that hit me was that GOD HEARS ME WHEN I CALL HIM!! Why is this? Because I have set my love upon Him! (Psalm 91) There are SO many songs that have been written that speak of this topic… there is an old hymn by Charles Wesley called, “And Can it Be?”

    “He left His Father’s throne above
    So free, so infinite His grace—
    Emptied Himself of all but love,
    And bled for Adam’s helpless race:
    ’Tis mercy all, immense and free,
    For O my God, it found out me!”

    Amazing! So let us now continually offer up the sacrifice of praise! (You have just inspired another WFW!)

    Sorry about the itch thing. ;)

    Amazingly enough, I learned at the age of 10 – personally – that God hears me and answers me. (See #3 in my testimony.) What an incredible God.

    And it’s okay about the brain itch. Keeps me from brain rot. :)
