“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of any works, lest any man should boast.” Ephesians 2:8-9
I must make a confession, honestly, I have too many confessions to make but the most relevant at this time is that this my first attempt at blogging. Very briefly, I have dealt with some significant losses in my life over the last few years. And, after years of stubbornness I finally stopped looking to myself or others for comfort. I came to a point that I was so emotionally and spiritually broken that He was the only viable option. I confessed to Him my sins and shortcomings. I laid myself before Him and asked for Christ for His comfort, peace and love. And, praise Him, without any true merit on my part, He gave it to me. Yes, I do believe that the heading for my first post should focus on what all my failures and mistakes brought me to this point. The fact that by grace, by HIS GRACE, I am saved. Nothing I did earned it, nothing I did made me worthy. It was purely through His grace and mercy.
I want to thank any and all visitors to this blog for your patience and understanding as I struggle my way through the process of learning how to do this. I beg you not judge me too harshly. I am new to this, as I am a new man in Christ.
I want to take one minute to explain that I am not doing this to be preachy. I am not doing this pretending I am a great teacher. I am doing this, selfishly I must admit, to help me learn how to be a better Christian and in the process maybe help someone else. I have no wish or desire to speak critically of others. I have been guilty of that in the past and that is not how I should show Christ through me. My posts here won’t be trying to pretend to elevate myself, on my great and mighty God who gracefully saved me.
Thank you for stopping by, I hope my posts will be of use to someone out there.
