Journal Entry 10/18/2010
“Grace and peace be yours in abundance through the
knowledge of God and our Lord Jesus Christ.”
2 Peter 1:2 (NIV)
Grace God’s unmerited love for us, our receiving something we don’t deserve, comes to us as a gift when we ask Jesus into our hearts.
Peacethe presence and experience of right relationships—is a desire, a goal and a gift from God. True peace belongs to those who turn away from their sin and ask the Father’s forgiveness.
Peter tells us we can have these gifts in abundance when we have an intimate relationship with God through His Son.
I need to possess these qualities in my life as I write for Him, as I live for Him, and as I communicate with other people.
I desire God’s help in the way I present myself, especially when I face circumstances not of my choosing—the harsh ones.
UPDATE: While we were clearing out our living room for repainting and new carpet, I came across this old journal. I believe it is one I did when I read “Write His Answer” by Marlene Bagnull. I say this because the majority of the entries have a paragraph that starts with the phrase, “As one who writes for Him . . . .”
I have enjoyed re-reading some of the entries. I intend to continue rediscovering what I believed were my responsibilities to Him at that time as I try to regain what I feel I may have lost over the years.
