I DON’T KNOW

ACTS 29 TODAY

I just wanted to add something that has been on my heart this week and I just wanted to give Jesus all the honor and glory for what He has, is, and will continue to do in all of our lives.

I certainly did not start out N life dreaming of becoming a student of Jesus Christ, I was not looking for some Spiritual experience that would change my whole world, and I was just minding my own business and doing my own thing.

I had been taken to the building (where the church, the people of god met) on many Sunday mornings, and evenings, and Wednesday nights as well, AND some good ole fashion sawdust floor tent camp meetings to.

I had sat thru countless alter calls, personal invitations from the Pastor, and people telling me I was going to hell, and STILL I HAD NO IDEA OF WHO OR WHAT JESUS WAS ALL ABOUT. They were all well meaning people and just trying to help me, but at the same time I had no desire or dream of becoming a believer N Jesus.

It was never on my radar, never gave it a thought, and never dreamed that becoming a believer would happen to me, NOT A CHANCE.

The point is this I WAS NEVER LOOKING FOR JESUS (I WAS LOOKING FOR SOMETHING) AND I NEVER FOUND JESUS BECAUSE HE WAS …NEVER LOST…I WAS LOST AND HE….FOUND ME.

The word says “YOU DID NOT CHOOSE HIM….BUT HE CHOOSE YOU” people often say, how or where did you find Jesus, and I know what they mean, BUT HE FOUND ME, I WAS THE LOST ONE.

I guess I feel such gratitude, amazement, and thankfulness as to WHY WOULD HE CHOOSE ME.

Why was I born a male N Orville, California, USA … N 1949? Why not a female born in Somalia N 2013, or Yemen, or or or?

WHY ME, WHY YOU, AND WHY US ALL WHO R BORN OF THE SPIRIT, THE CHURCH OF THE FIRST BORN.

I don’t know why, but I am eternally grateful that He did, and I think that is why they call it AMAZING GRACE.

I was as lost as a goose in a snow storm, no hope, and wandering around N the darkness not knowing over what I was stumbling.

HEY, I THINK WE R LOST !!!

And as I was just smoking weed on the beach watching the sunset, MINDING MY OWN BUSINESS, THE FATHER DREW ME BUY HIS SPIRIT AND REVEALED TO ME THAT THERE IS A GOD AND HE CREATED THE VERY SUNSET I WAS WATCHING.

A short time later the unimaginable happened, Larry the drug dealing, Hippie, and party hardier accepted the finished work of the cross and was BORN AGAIN, THE SECOND TIME JAN-18-1972 AT 22 YEARS OF AGE.
