Salvation

Discipline.

It’s been a long, hard road, these last five years. A long time ago, I warned the Lord that if I didn’t get some sort of help with this dreadful and dangerous trial, it would destroy me.

It almost did.

Last evening, the Lord sent me back His own warning. He used my precious brother. Don, to begin with.

Today, I realise that I’ve been so self-focused; I haven’t looked to Christ for strength. Oh, I’ve prayed; I’ve cried, but none of it worked.

Only knowing Christ through His Gospel works. And sometimes, we need a reminder or two of what that means!

Now, I realise that a lot of people don’t think God can draw a crowd on the Internet to do the things a visible church can do.

Don proved that to be wrong, and I thank God. See, I can’t find preaching like I found on here, anywhere. I can’t find the warnings anywhere that I find when I’m here.

I do tend to take it all for granted. But, if I lost my Internet connection, I’d lose my church. All of the blogs I read from all of you I subscribe to are helping bring in the Kingdom.

Do you understand how important that is?

Don’t give up writing – ANY of you. Something you write might just be the thing to pull someone away from the edge. You might just be saving a life.

Thank you, Don, just doesn’t quite cut it. Telling this precious soul that he might just have helped save my eternity is a bit more like it. A.K.A: Building up the church in its most holy faith!

About tellthetruth1

The blog site is up and running. Please feel free to visit if you want to know the Lord. I treasure His Scriptures and pray you do, also. I've been a Christian since October 2009. The Lord saved me that month and has led me through many things in life. The one thing I adore Him for is bringing me the Light of Salvation and for forgiving me my wickedness.

    You should see it from where I’m standing, Wally. Things were getting very, very out of control. But then…well, you’ve read the rest 🙂
