Every day, I get a thing called “God’s Minute,” and it’s written to ME, as if God is speaking to me.  I love it. 
Some days I find it ok, and other days, it’s like WOW!  Today, it just struck me as something that so many
of my friends would embrace.  I hear so many of you say things about messing up.  Does that drive you away
from the church or from God?  I hope not–God hopes not, too.  In fact, God knows that you want to do better
things, even when you wind up doing something you didn’t want to do.
Read on, and know that you are unconditionally loved…


 


“FOR WHAT I DO IS NOT THE GOOD I WANT TO DO; NO,


THE EVIL I DO NOT WANT TO DO–THIS I KEEP DOING.


WHAT A WRETCHED MAN I AM! WHO WILL RESCUE


ME FROM THIS BODY OF DEATH?”


( ROMANS 7:19 & 24 *NIV )


Dear Susan,


Those are the words of the Apostle Paul. To remain


sinless was a struggle for him, as well as, the rest of the


Apostle’s! For sin has always been a struggle for mankind


ever since Adam and Eve!


Therefore when we slip and sin it is very important to ask


our Heavenly Father to forgive us. For it is written; IF WE


CONFESS OUR SINS, HE IS FAITHFUL AND JUST AND


WILL FORGIVE US OUR SINS AND PURIFY US FROM


ALL UNRIGHTEOUSNESS. (1 JOHN 1:9) Thus we become


cleansed and forgiven from our past sins, and that includes


all of them!


After all it is written; “COME NOW, LET US REASON


TOGETHER,” SAYS THE LORD. “THOUGH YOUR SINS


ARE LIKE SCARLET, THEY SHALL BE WHITE AS SNOW;


THOUGH THEY ARE RED AS CRIMSON, THEY SHALL


BE LIKE WOOL.” ( ISAIAH 1:18 )


So Susan, just be the very best person that you can be,


and if you slip and sin once in a while, do not think that God


doesn’t love you anymore. For no one is perfect, however


once there was one, sinless and blameless, and filled


with love, and they Crucified Him…


 


Isn’t it great to be reminded that we’re not perfect, not expected to be perfect, and we can slip
once in a while and God will still love us?  He is amazing, His love is amazing, and I pray that you
are trusting Him to be your guide through life.  Let life be fun, have a ton of fun, but keep in mind
that you can be a party girl or a party guy for God and be drunk on Him, high on the Holy Spirit
and there is absolutely nothing illegal about it.  What a way to live!  Try it!!
