The Undeserved Life

Posted: July 6, 2013 in Uncategorized

What a priceless gift, undeserved life
Have I been given
Through Christ crucified
You’ve called me out of death
You’ve called me into life
And I was under Your wrath
Now through the cross I’m reconciled

How true are those lyrics pinned by Jeremy Riddle in “Sweetly Broken!”  After a year in a half of being in Colorado I find myself on my back porch singing praises and reading about the Lord.  How good is HE!?!  When I went up to Colorado I found myself constantly in a state of wondering what the Lord was doing.  I found my life extremely awesome and frustrating at the same time.  I knew my passions and knew that the Lord called me to more than what I was doing but couldn’t understand what I was going through.  I couldn’t understand that I needed to learn servanthood and to see church in a different way before I would lead.  When thinking about everything I would get so mad!  I knew we were walking in the Lord’s will and didn’t see where it was taking us.  There has never been a time in my life I have been so grateful for as the time spent in Denver helping with Emmaus Church.  I had incredible friendships, incredible things to see happen in the church, and watched the church work at the power of Jesus in a city dark as night.

I am here in Abilene now and the praise must begin for every season in life.  I wasn’t ready for Abilene or ministry til the exact time the Lord wanted me to be.  I couldn’t step out and make it come quicker.  I couldn’t run in life as fast as possible because the God that created me with the character, personality, and knowledge that I have made me right for this time.  So with this I will say thank you to the Lord.  Thank you for those hard times in which you moved.  Thank you for the times I spent learning valuable information which would help me in ministry to glorify you.  Thank you that I am not in charge of my future.  The Lord knew what He was doing all along to see the most glory given to him.  I fail as a human to see but when He reminds me of how good He is I will say that there is no other better time to repent.
