I am a grateful follower of Jesus Christ.
* I believe that God can make beauty “From Ashes” : “To all who mourn in Israel, he will give a crown of beauty for ashes, a joyous blessing instead of mourning, festive praise instead of despair. In their righteousness, they will be like great oaks that the LORD has planted for his own glory.” Isaiah 61:3
* I believe that through Jesus, and only Jesus, am I saved through faith and grace to live eternity with Him because He died and paid the ultimate price for my sins. When I repent and ask Jesus to be in my life by faith, I am made righteous through His free gift of salvation :
“He has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time.” 2 Timothy 1:9
“For just as through the disobedience of the one man the many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the one man the many will be made righteous.” Romans 5:19
* I believe that the Bible is the inspired, true word of God. “For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.” 2 Peter 1:21
I am not perfect, I am human, I am flawed and God is constantly at work within me. I am a sinner in need of a Savior, that is why I am so thankful for Jesus! “Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!” 2 Corthinans 9:15
