You deserve all the blessings…

You deserve it all

You deserve all the blessings heaven has to offer!

Don’t ever doubt that.

You truly deserve all heaven has and more because of Jesus.

But why does this reality elude us?

I decided to find out how things really worked in the scripture. I found that we have a Father that has abundance inside abundance. For example, Jesus fed the multitudes and there was plenty leftover (Mathew 14:20). In another instance, Peter had a great catch after toiling all night and catching nothing (Luke 5:6). Jesus always wanted his disciples to have an idea of the abundance that comes to those who follow Him.

God’s abundance is not only limited to material things. When you come to him everything he offers you exceeds your expectation (Ephesians 3:20). When he offers salvation, he saves to the uttermost...

So, don’t stop hitting the tree simply because you can’t see the tree falling down. Keep at it…stay consistent.

Letter to God

Some weeks ago, I got an opportunity to write a Love Letter to God on Tomi Akibo’s blog. Thank you Tomi.

I have taken the liberty of reproducing it here for those of us that haven’t read it already.

Dear God, Father,

Oh, how privileged I am to reach out and call you Father and not in a perfunctory sense, I say it with a deep sense of knowing, with an experiential sense of having walked the path with you as a father.

How do I begin?  For days on end, I have considered how to begin this letter to you and what to say. Every song I’ve sang has again inspired me to say more and thank you for more. I am so blessed to have you, especially because you loved me first.  Eternity is not enough for me to respond to the depth of your love...
