FALLEN FAMILIES NEED GRACE ———- Genesis 1-4
WOW, folks!!! “THIS”… was tonight’s message at church. And “IT”… hit me RIGHT UP-SIDE MY HEAD!!! OUCH!!!
“I,” of course, picked out our last name from that first word: F… “ALLEN”. And I leaned over to whisper that awareness to Chris… IMMEDIATELY (RIGHT during service)!!! F… “ALLEN” FAMILIES. Pppsssttt…(F)… “ALLEN” FAMILIES——– NEED GRACE!!! AMEN. Chris did chuckle… the first time I whispered it to him!!! “HE”… had had enough by the 3rd or 4th whisper! 🙁
Yep, folks… Dr. Walter West was speaking DIRECTLY… TO ME… AGAIN!!! He even acknowledged, at some point, how many of us there had been hurt tremendously by family members… “those people who were supposed to love you”. THOSE PEOPLE… you were supposed to “TRUST”. Re-visiting old wounds AGAIN. “FORGIVENESS,” however, IS… setting me FREE. AMEN.
Now, in moving forward with my current family (Chris, Danielle, and Chase), tonight’s message resonated… LOUDLY!!! The main points were as follows:
— “Search for the image of God in my family. It’s there.” Genesis 1:26-27
–“Speak blessing and victory into my family.” Genesis 1:28
–“Honor and hold fast to my family bonds, even as they change.” Genesis 2:24-25
–“Leave room for redemption and forgiveness.” Genesis 3:15-17
–“Bring *HOPE into my family by accepting the Grace of God!!!” Romans 5:12-17
AMAZING message delivered at church tonight!!! AMAZING GRACE!!! ALL families have their… “STUFF,” folks. A.K.A: Their “PLATES”… of “STUFF”. SOME are… how do you say it… “heaping”??? Others are… LESS… “heaping”. EVERY FAMILY, however, HAS IT’S PLATE OF STUFF!!! We are ALL imperfect people. Making mistakes EVERY single day. Seeking to give the BEST of ourselves while simply seeking to survive… “LIFE”. Pretty DEEP, huh? POWERFUL STUFF!
Oh, yeah… and you are simply NOT gonna believe “THIS” little tid-bit of “F.Y.I.” news, either!!! READY??? Well, there was a new singer in tonight’s band. “NEW” to me, that is. “SHE”… was AMAZING!!! I slipped off my heels to go up on stage AFTER the service to meet AND compliment “HER,” and to give her a numberoneteam.net business card. GUESS WHAT??? “I”… told her that “MY” name is “JILL”. Are you guessing??? Yep… “HER” name is ALSO… “JILL”!!! SHUT-UP!!! I am NOT kidding, folks. “JILL”… met “JILL” tonight at church!!! Oh, and did I mention: “JILL”… is AMAZING!!! 😉
Give the BEST of yourself for “JUST” today… “EVERY” day!!!
P.H.P., folks. People Helping People.
GO TEAM!!! WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!!
ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!! AMEN.
