I have been having a rough time this morning. Last night was very discouraging. I have always been open and honest on my blog and I want to show my wife that I am not some phony trying to act like I have it altogether all the time. I have never acted like that and I have always been real about who I am, what I’ve been through, and what I struggle with. I am a sinner saved by grace and I desperately need Jesus!
The preaching the Lord writes through me here is by the power of the Holy Spirit. I’m just freely dispensing a gift that He freely gave me, that’s all. Sometimes I have arguments with my wife and sometimes I get angry and sometimes I get angry and complain about the diseases I suffer and sometimes I get angry with God and say things I shouldn’t and it discourages my family. I’m not always encouraging and sometimes I have very bad days too. Every day I need Jesus and I cling to Him with everything I am! Today, my heart is broken over my mistakes and I am truly sorry for being discouraging to my family at times. I am an imperfect man and I need God’s grace and mercy too.
The title of this post is due to something the Lord whispered to me this morning as I was praying and asking Him to bring healing and peace to our family. I am sharing this because I know there are other people out there that need to hear this. The Lord said to me:
“I forgive you, I am with you, and I love you. Keep trusting. Keep believing. Don’t give up.”
All I could do was say thank you through tears. That is how the Lord speaks to us as He comforts us in the Holy Spirit! It’s like a beautiful thought that just flows through your mind. Let that be a blessing to you today. No matter what you are going through keep trusting, keep believing, and don’t give up! Jesus forgives you, Jesus is with you, and Jesus loves you!
To my wife: I love you with all my heart and I love the kids with all my heart. I have shared my heart in front of all these people because I love you and the kids with all my heart. Please forgive me for not being the man of God, father, and husband I should be at times. I love you!
Thank you all for your prayers. May His will be done in all things!
Grace and peace to you all!
