Adventures in faith and freedom 2023
The year 2023 is a year that is dedicated to the preparation of my Ministry for God. It's all about preparation.
Of course, I'm going to have to work in order to live during this year, so the adventures are going to be forthcoming.
I have made it known to my friends and family that I am going to be traveling during the year 2024. It has been met with resistance for the most part. I haven't gotten very much support at all. It is not going to deter me from doing what God has called me to do.
The way I see it, no one is paying my bills for me. No one is giving me a room to live in. No one is paying my medical bills for me. No one is nursing me or feeding me. God has given all of that responsibility to me. So, if I decide that I want to give it all back to God, I should be free to do so.
I have a subscription to Pure Flix. And in it is a series about stewardship. I found it pretty interesting yesterday.
But, I am saying all this just to say that until now I have been posting every day on Facebook. My life has been on Facebook. Everything I think, everything I feel, everything I do, everything I spend, and everything I need. Facebook is a great tool for keeping up with friends and family and I won't be leaving Facebook, but I will not be posting there as I've have done in the past. It is part of my New Year's resolution.
Instead, I'm going to be posting here on my website where I don't have to worry about being put in Facebook jail for what I think, or having someone report me for what they don't agree with. This is my website. I pay for it. I'm not doing anything illegal on it. I can say and do what I want to hear this is my home on the internet. And everyone is welcome here, as long as you understand and respect that.
I watched a movie by Rich Mullins called Ragamuffin. I can relate to Rich Mullins. In so many ways.
I have been saved since I was 8 years old. I remember the exact day I got saved and the reason I got saved. I remember what finally made me walk down the aisle, and the disappointment I felt that I wasn't allowed to be baptized until I was 14 years old.
I'm not saying all that to say that I'm better than anyone else. I've lived a pretty bumpy life. But, throughout it all, never once did I ever deny my savior, even when it hurt. There were times that I was shaking like a leaf, but never did I ever deny Him.
I always felt like, no matter how imperfect I was, Jesus was always by my side. A lot of times it was to chastise me. Many times it was to comfort me. And eventually it was to encourage me.
I don't know where I'm going, where I will end up, or even if I will be able to do what it is I feel I am called to do. But I do know this, God doesn't call the qualified. He qualifies the called.
So I'm going to put one foot in front of the other and see where He takes me.
