God's Message For You
Gloria Laroza T.

Author requests article critique
"For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of sound mind." 2 Timothy 1:7
We know that God speaks to us in many ways. It could be through The Scriptures, through His people, through circumstances, even through trials.
As I read my devotional this morning, the above Bible verse keeps ringing in my ears that I might as well share it with you. Maybe it will speak to your heart too the way it did to mine.
God knows my fears. I am a shy person who is afraid of what people may think when I open my mouth. Maybe that's the reason I use writing as a means for self expression and to share God's love. I believe that God uses even my weaknesses for His glory, yet He didn't want me to be ashamed to share the Gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation.
God has a wonderful plan for our lives. It took me awhile to realize what those plans are. It's simple. I am created to glorify Him.
We have God's power. We have God's love. What greater love there is than to know Jesus Christ died in the cross to save us (yes, all of us who will believe, receive and accept Him in our hearts). He gives us sound mind to know that He is The Only Way, The Truth and The Life. Yes, He alone can save us. Not our good works, not how many times we go to church and how much we know the Bible(although those are important).
Many of you already know what this message is all about. Your lives had blessed me more than you know. Your life testimonies inspire me in my own spiritual walk and serve as a reminder of God's love. I thank God for you.
But to share God's message I will. When you feel like your life is a mess, or you are not good enough, just stop right there. Jesus Christ is sufficient for you.
In Christ's Love,

"I am a shy person who is afraid of what people may think when I open my mouth." (These could be my words.) Yet, He has put HIS Word in us, and we cannot help but speak it forth, or write it. This is a good article. I look forward to reading more.

Isn't it funny how we can excude a certain personality in our writing, a boldness that does not seem to be present in our daily lives? But it's true. Moses spoke face-to-face with the Lord and had such an important role to fulfill. But he was slow of speech and needed Aaron's voice. Here, we Moseses have Aaron's voice... and it speaks loud and clear the messages God has for the Body of Christ. Good work, Sis.

Dear Gloria, What you wrote here says it ALL: "God has a wonderful plan for our lives. It took me awhile to realize what those plans are. It's simple. I am created to glorify Him." AMEN! We humans usually makes things all too complicated, including our faith journeys...when all God asks is to accept His Son and Glorify His Name!
I want to add that I am shy like you are and that is also why I write about my feelings and beliefs. We have much in common, Gloria! However, you are much more courageous than you admit because there have been MANY times when you have stepped forward and opened up about your beliefs and you have taught us so much about being good, obedient Christians! God Bless You! With love, SiS Peggy

Beautifully written sis Gloria! Could you just imagine what a glorius change would come about, if we could only realize the power there is in love? If we let love reign in our body? Wow, how wonderful that would be! I love you sis, Sharon
