I praise God for all the things that He protected me from in my life. He has blessed me in SO many ways. However, those blessings all added together has lead me to something that I desperately need HIS Grace to be saved from...ME! You see, I am too much like the pharasees of the Bible. I look at myself and I easily see all the "bad" things that I didn't do before becoming a Christian. However, I am blinded to the selfishness and pride that I have built up because I am so "good."
How sad is that. I am a missionary. I am a sinner saved by grace, but have I ever really learned what it means to be saved by grace? Have I REALLY given HIM all the praise He is worthy of?
God has started me down a journey in the year 2006. He has started me down a journey to learn what it means to be saved by grace. I believe that through learning the true meaning of ALL He has saved me of, I will in turn learn to worship Him at a whole new level and I will learn to pray more effectively.
I must say I am nervous about posting all of this, but God is teaching me an amazing lesson, and I can't keep it to myself. I want to shout it from the roof tops! I am going to begin to post what God teaches me about being His child who is truly saved by HIS grace. Come and join the journey with me!
