In 1974, I started as a crazy-in-love-with-Jesus new Christian with a deep awareness of my sinfulness and my need for God. Through the years, I've lived my faith in positive ways, but at times I've also been:
- A legalistic Christian with the wrong focus.
- A struggling Christian with the wrong questions.
- A disillusioned Christian with the wrong perspective.
"Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me....Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus."Shall we "press on" together, dear friends?
Would you like to wish me a happy birthday? I have over 1300 subscribers, but I hear from less than 5% of you on a regular basis. It would really bless me if you would click HERE, come on my site and leave a comment in the comment section of this post. I'd love to hear your suggestions ... what you like about BLN ... what you'd like to see me cover in future devotions ... what devotions especially spoke to your heart lately ... anything you'd like to share. It would be a great blessing to me to hear from you and get to know you a little better. Thanks! Gail
