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.
Until next time...
