All...

Before I begin today's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, I would like to wish my grandson, A...  Happy Birthday!  I'll look forward to seeing you, A.  Spending time celebrating will be a blessing.  Happy Birthday!

In yesterday's LwL entry, I quoted a Bible verse that spoke about training up a child (Proverbs 22:6).

That verse is truly important to me.

When I think about it, I reflect upon what has happened in my life.

Yes, I came to know and love Jesus, as a child.

Does this mean I was a perfect person, all my life?  No.

Did I focus only on Him, and live for Him.  No.

For a time, we no longer went to church.  When this happened, I seemed to fall away from God.

And, with family problems and issues that truly affected my life, I didn't feel loved.  Not by family, nor God, in some ways.

Did I sin?  Yes.

Is this unusual for people?  No.

After all, we are all sinners.

Thinking of this, reminded me of Romans 3:23, "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;"

Just as we just read, all have sinned.  And, come short of the glory of God.

Yes, we have all sinned. 

I thought about God.  Even through times when I sinned in my life.

I trusted in/believed upon Jesus, always.  I knew He loved me. 

I eventually knew I had to refocus upon Him.  And, did.

I recommitted my life to Him.  And, fulfilled exactly what we read in yesterday's Bible verse. 

Meaning, that after recommitting my life, I returned to loving and being obedient to His calling.  So, in a way, it can be considered not departing, after being trained up as a child, in the way I needed to go.

Has this happened for you?

I pray it has. 

For if so, we will some day meet.  Either here on earth, or in Heaven. 

Praise God!


Until next time...
