My Birthday: Take Two

A year ago today I was lost.
A year ago today I was heading to a devils hell.
A year ago today I was saved and born again.
A year ago this week I started going to church.
A year ago today my heart was breaking.
And a year ago today I put all that in the Lords hands and I KNOW where I am going when I die. Heaven.
Do you know where you are going when you die?

It has been a great year. Not the perfect year but it has been the easiest when dealing with the stresses of this life. I like to think I lead a pretty simple life but when it comes to matters of the heart I wear it on my sleeve. I used to think that I was doing something wrong. That it was me. The only thing I was doing wrong was not trusting the Lord that died for me and who knows what is best for me.

I still get sad or mad but at the end of the day I thank God for another day and each morning I pray for another day because I am not promised another. No one is.

I just want to thank God for putting my brother in a place where he can tell me about salvation. I also want to ask my brother John to chime in on the comments about Salvation.

Happy Birthday to me. 🙂

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY SAL!!! I’m so glad that you’re in the family, and that we’re able to be around to see you grow. You’re doing good, and you’re also a great testimony. How many people do you know that get saved on a Monday night and are at church that Wednesday, and have been going ever since? (It’s not very common.) Keep strong!!! We love you.

    Ephesians 2:8-9 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.
    It is amazing that some work so hard to get saved or stay saved, But the bible says By Grace Through Faith. Not what I can do but what God did for me. My Faith In Jesus to save me is what did it. In the bible were it tells of the woman with the twelve issues of blood was healed because of her faith to touch just the hem of His garment. Jesus turned and looked at her and said your Faith hath made thee whole;
    Mark 5:34 And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace,
    Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

    If you died tonight, now think about that, what if you never make it to the next day that you are looking forward to. What if you died that tonight? Are you going to heaven or Hell. Jesus spoke of Hell more than Heaven in the bible. Jesus spoke of a man in Hell.
    Luke 16:23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, Some will say, Why am I going to hell? Because you are comdemed already.
    John 3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
    If God has convicted your heart of your sins why dont you confess it an d get saved today.

Then one day God did for him like he did Jay and bacame the greatest missionary and helped through the inspiration of God to write more new testament books in the bible.

    WOW! I am so proud of you. I thought you had been saved a lot longer. You never miss church, for the most part are there on time (except when you do something dumb like lock your keys up) and you even take up the offering. hmmmm, I wonder if that’s how you buy all those lovely vehicles. Alright, alright, just kiding. I really, truly am proud of you and love bugging you. I’m so glad to know that you’re truly happy in the Lord, I can see it in your actions. Thanks for coming to the house, yesterday evening and for being at Harvest Baptist today. My family loves you, so do Dale and I. And please, tell Juan about periods, too. That they’re our friends as well as commas. Lol.
