Dear Sis, It's been exactly 4 years, since I wrote you my 1st letter, sharing my walk as a born-again; A walk where I never imagined I would be, but deep in my heart, I knew, that I was destined to be and we both now know, that your wish also became reality, when your "adik" became part of the Kingdom family.
It is a feeling, where only the ones, who have accepted the Son as their Savior can understand. A feeling of indescribable joy, knowing, that also the angels in heaven rejoice over that lost son or daughter, who found his way back to the Father. A feeling I also experienced, when my younger brother, also become your brother, when He finally opened up to our Father's love, through His begotten Son. A feeling, that develops tears of joy, either in our eyes, but especially, hidden within our hearts.
It is feeling, that also builds up our faith, where we see prayers getting answered and where we have the privilege to be witnesses of these memorable moments and where we are reminded again, that none of us deserved grace, yet it has been granted freely to each and everyone, Who has accepted the Son.
And as we continue this walk, we gradually see the changes around us, as we begin to understand, why our Lord has called us to be the salt on the earth and the light in the world, while continually depending on Him, especially in our weaknesses, so we can be strengthened through the Spirit, Who is the One helping us to develop and bring forth His good fruits.
It is a walk where we know that we are NOT alone, and one where we continue to grow as we stay connected with our best friend, Who is and was and is to come.
That's why I daily keep giving praise, honor and glory to our Father, Who is seated in the Heavenly.
I thank Him for bringing you on my path, which was also part of His plan, even long before you accepted me as your "adik", and thereafter when our family lines finally got sealed and aligned through our Lord and Savior, King Jesus Christ.
I pray, that He continues to keep leading you and brother Andrew and every other family member in Christ, to more souls, who are about to be lost, just like I once was, and that they too may be adopted in the Kingdom family and experience the life to live in God's liberty.
I pray, that He continues to keep you all in good health and keeps blessing you abundantly, so much that it keeps overflowing, in Jesus mighty Name! Hallelujah! Amen!
His first works of poetry consisted mostly of love themes, which often represented the feelings of being in love as a teen, and when the inspiration ceased as a young adult, the poet went into deep hibernation, which after healing from a deep, dark depression, got awakened, thanks to the Son, Who through the Spirit, turned him into a new creation, which also became evident in his writings, where love and glorification of his Heavenly Father became more prominent, and served as a conscious guide in the chosen topics, which now also consisted of subjects like scripture, music, dance, fun, nature, but also poetry and writing and even critical statements.
His conversion gradually let him accept his talent and brought him to the path of purpose, to serve as the salt on the earth and the light in the world as commanded by His Lord.
To Him be the glory! In Jesus Name! Hallelujah! Amen!
“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts."
Isaiah 55:8-9 NKJV
Can't help to say, that you are not on top of my list. When I think of you I am reminded of your strong bitterness.
Even salted meat can hardly diminish the taste, but my conscience gives me the strength to follow through, telling me not to waste food, even if it doesn't taste that good.
Many would yearn to be in my place and that's why I'm grateful still, when you're served on my plate. So that's why you're still hear me pray: "Thank You Lord and please bless this food, in Jesus Name!"
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.
Proverbs 3:5-6 NKJV
If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
Galatians 5:25 NKJV
Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.
John 8:36 NKJV
Be open to anyone, who has an aching heart, who needs a shoulder just to lean on, or an open ear to share their griefs, to have some relief, to feel, that life still matters, that they are still surrounded by good people who care, and that there is even Someone higher up, Who is awaiting their prayers, to give Him permission, to interfere and turn around their situation for the better, because He already has the solution, for His faithful love and tender mercies endure forever ...
Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.
James 4:8 NKJV
Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”
Matthew 11:28-30 NKJV
Friendship does not know restrictions when it comes to one's skin.
Friendship is a connection, which is established because of mutual similarities or just because of the different nature of personalities, where they often share mutual benefits.
Friendship is a feeling, that has a signature of brotherly love, that stirs up the thoughts with lots of positivity and gets the best out, and is marked with lots of kindness, compassion and care, and therefore has everything to do with the heart.
I was taught to love, yet had moments that I sought revenge.
I was called to love, but fled, because I was led by the fears of the world.
I was let go and wandered off, only to be taught the hard lessons of life and return to God like a lost son, and to learn about His endless love and tender-mercies by experiencing His grace, through His beloved Son, Who gave His life as ransom, so I could live a free, Spirit-filled life.
Therefore He truly is my best teacher of ... and for life.
