The Journey Begins...
I would like to personally thank you for visiting flouishingrace.com! I am super excited about the assignment that God has given me and I am grateful that each one of you are joining me on this wonderful journey. Some of you may be new to the faith and others may have been walking with Christ for quite some time, but that is the least of the matter. Regardless of where you are in your walk, continuous growth is necessary. We all have different stories that have be shaped by our past experiences, relationships, decisions, etc. and in one way or another it has shaped our view of ourselves in relation to God and his love for us. Either is has drawn us closer to Him or it has caused us to move further away. What ever may be true for you, It is my hope and prayer that through every devotional that you read, you will gain a new level of perspective of how much God loves you and that you will receive the gift of his grace as a safe place to grow in that love. Over the past few years and I have learned so much about my heavenly father and how he sees and loves me. Through every season of life, now that I can look back with a clearer perspective, through every up and down, I can where his hand was the entire time. So now I want to view him from that same perspective has grow more in his grace and love for me into my future. I pray that this becomes your desire as well.
I will be clear and upfront with each of you, no I don't have all of the answers, but I assure you that I will rely on the word of God and the Holy Spirit for guidance and he will lead us into all truth (John 16:13). I also encourage you to let this be a guide that will assist you on journey to a personal relationship with Jesus and his word. So out side of every devotional, let the word of God be your foundation. Again thank you for joining me, can't wait to hear your testimonies!
I leave you with this:
For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height, to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
- Ephesians 3:14-19
So let the journey begin!
