Today, beloved brethren, we are driving the last 400 miles of our trip to the next assignment. As most of you know my husband is a traveling Respiratory Therapist, so we go where the hospitals need us. Each assignment can last anywhere from 8 weeks to 9 months. This time we’re heading to Colorado! It’s been a while since we’ve been in the mountains, although the badlands of North Dakota provided an excellent replacement.
This blog was never intended to be my outlet for the blessed life I live. However, every now and then I like to take a moment to invite you into closer fellowship with my family. When we are on the silent two lane highway I get to spend more time reading each of your blogs, and learning from the wisdom and knowledge you all have to offer. Every part of the busy life we live stops when the travel, there’s suddenly time to take it all in.
When we started traveling we were unsaved, and unsure of pretty much everything. Thankfully, due to the incomprehensible grace of God alone, in July 4th of 2015, waiting for corporate housing to come through, we repented of our sins in a hotel in Bismarck, put our faith in Jesus Christ alone for our salvation. Our journey from state to state hasn’t been nearly as exciting as our journey from grace to grace. Sanctification is one of God’s truly amazing graces He gives to His people. The evidence that you are truly saved is not just that you’ve been changed, but that you are continuing to be changed.
Dear friends, if you feel as though you’ve never experienced the new birth of the Christian faith, I implore you to work through your faith with fear and trembling. We must examine ourselves to see if we are in the faith. Gods mercy and love are just as real as His hatred of sin, and just nature on judgement day. He is an infinite God, thus when we live a rebellious, law breaking life, sinning against Him, the punishment befitting that crime is infinite. Eternity is real, heaven and hell are real, let us not take lightly that which should concern us the greatest.
As always, my dear, beloved brethren, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.
