“…for it is in giving that we receive; it is in pardoning
that we are pardoned; And it is in dying
that we are born
to eternal life.”
from the Poem of St. Francis
As we give our lives to serving God it is indeed a surrender. In that sense, we let go of ourselves, and we truly receive so many spiritual blessings in return. This also reminds me of the phrase we reap what we sow. A farmer plants seeds, and in return those seeds grow, and hopefully one day will produce food.
And we are to forgive others, the way we have been forgiven, unconditionally. Not that we agree with the wrong done to us, but we let it go and trust God to work it all out.
Heavenly Father, help us to be forgiving of others and giving of ourselves – first and foremost to you, and also to others. Amen.
P. S. See you on Monday!

This blog and these posts are an offering. Before I ever began, I gave it all to the Lord, and it was really a step of faith. Faith blogs are never the most popular, and that’s because of our world becoming increasingly secular.
But having said all that, it does appear that someone is manipulating this site and perhaps even scaring people away. Are there trolls? Probably. Are they Russian hackers?? I doubt it! Lol.
Think it couldn’t happen here? Simply look up Psalm 29:11, on my site. The difference of people being involved in March of this year, and now is remarkable.
One thing trolls do not understand though, is the concept of offering. If God blesses these posts – great. And if not that’s OK. It is in His hands. I will keep posting.
Heavenly Father I trust in You, and I ask that you would continue to guide me with this site. Show me how it should be done. I give this all to you, once again. In Christ’s name, amen.

First of all I want to thank each of you, for being here and reading these posts. More importantly thank you your faith, and your examples of faith that are so encouraging!
I also wanted to let you know that I am not a professional blogger, I make no money from it, and I have nothing to sell. Which means I work a job, and one with very difficult hours at times, so there are occasions where I will not be here for a couple of days, reading your work.
I do look forward to reading your work! I have several blogs because of my love for writing, but this is my faith based one, so it is very important to me.
Thanks again for reading!
