Happy Earth Day. She is our Mother, please love her. She is all we have xo
This photo was taken of me at my property in Australia near Byron Bay some years ago. This was my favorite spot, next to my lilly pond, where i would have picnics with my cats and watch the mini frogs and dragonflies. Ahhhhhh nature is my best friend.
I found myself bankrupt and without excuse for not obeying and following the truth of the scriptures. I have since learned that they have never lied. I just could not perceive in my mind or understand with my heart until my rebirth in Him. But one particular day, The Lord made my life pass before my eyes and the truth is I came to know that I needed Him more than He needed me. I began through His Holy Spirit's guidance and love to review the fault-lines of/in my life and saw clearly that I was blind, deaf, and dumb. In despair and afterwards gratitude, I fell before The Most High totally undone and apologetic. I saw the fault-lines so clearly and it was seen in one flash: 1. I saw where I kept expecting things to change although I hadn't changed my service/attitude/observance of The Lord in obedience/submission/love/fear to His Word. I even expected family/friends to change, wanting to take them with me, not wanting to go on this journey alone. 2. I kept sinning deliberately, hoping that God would understand "I'm not perfect" or that "I'm only human" or that "Rome wasn't built in a day", trying to slow down the process while I at least take time to grieve my loses and lick my wounds. 3. Comparing my fault-lines to others, feeling mine were not as bad as most, looking for some credit or an "E" for effort. 4. By not accepting correction well, without feeling badly or becoming offended. 5. By not learning from the past or letting go of the past to move forward faster, feeling all at once it seemed, the reality of my past life crashing in abruptly, proving the enmity in my old heart. 6. Always doubting that God was there with me, for my good, going through with me faithfully, caring for my very soul. After examining these and some other undesirable fault-lines running through my body, mind and soul, I fell to my knees and landed on my face in tears, completely broken, ready for complete renewal and repair. Looking to Jesus, The Author and Finisher of my faith. This was The beginning of my healing and cleansing. He washed me white as snow. 🎤Amazing Grace how sweet the sound that save a wretch like me. I once was lost but now I'm found, was blind but now I see.🎶🎹
