Trader Joe’s cashier, Grace, asked me when I walked up, “What interesting thing has happened today?” I just stood there! I didn’t have a ready answer. That is completely out of character for me. I always have an answer, except today I had no answer.

Thinking, as I was listening to her talk while ringing up my groceries, (I’m just coming in from the road), my thoughts were swirling around the Peace of God that passes our understanding. I was full of peace! Yes, I was tired from working, but that is temporary. This peace that I have is eternal. Amen! :)
God has a plan. His plan includes me and it includes you my friend. God says in His Word, “I know the plans I have for you.” And in another area of His Word He says, “I am watching over My Word, making sure it performs what it was sent out to do.” Therefore, God is watching me and watching you, as we take God at His Word. In another area, God says, “I Am not a man that I should lie.” (These are basic paraphrased verses, not exact, look them up with your Concordance to read the exact wording).
I know what my plan is. I am to preach. I am to minister. I am to build God a church. I know that I am a Called Minister of God. I know my vision is to bring one million people with me to Heaven. I know God is watching over me and helping me minute by minute. I know God loves me. I know God has healed me of several serious illnesses. I know God has saved me from several serious truck wrecks. I know God is my source of everything in my life. I know that without God, I can do nothing!!! I know that without God, I am a loser and destitute for ruin and failure in every area of life. Only God is my answer! I am not the answer. No positive thinking or Kung-Fu Magic will ever lift me to success. NO! Only God Almighty through my Savior The Lord Jesus Christ and by the Power of The Holy Spirit will success ever be in my life. My Heavenly Father gets all the Glory for my success. In Jesus’ Name, amen.
Friend, as I was writing the previous paragraphs, I want you to know that you can say the same thing, if it’s true. Because I am nothing, a zero, save Jesus Christ. If you can not say these words with conviction, then spend more time with God. If you don’t know who God is, then simply ask by faith and in a prayerful manner from your heart, say, “Who are You?”
The moment I wrote those words I began to cry. I love the Lord with all my heart. I want you to love Him like that. Emotions are created by God to show depth of feeling. It’s okay to cry with love.
Today is a good day!
