My next post will be one of my favourite stories “The Three Trees” I’m sure a lot of you have heard or read it before, it’s so real to me perhaps because I did indeed dream high and lofty dreams that never eventuated but God wonderfully replaced them with much grander realities.
As a Child I wanted to be the best friend Jesus could ever have, but because of false teaching I lost my focus and became the worst……in time He forgave me and comforted me and then lifted me up.
I wanted to be the best Actress the world had ever known, I was told I had great talent but instead I ran away from home and eventually became a Children’s Carer in an Orphanage and some of the memories I have still uplift me much more than being a great Actress ever could.
As a newly Married woman I wanted to be a great wife but I failed, I had no Godly resources example or teaching to follow. I also wanted to be the best Mum ever but my babies died and then I could not conceive. Over the years God has filled my arms with other people’s Children and I have been greatly blessed so blessed that even now when they call me Aunty Anne, Granny Annie or Annie Mum my heart misses a beat and I feel so Loved.
Thirty years ago I wanted to make up for all my mistakes and be the best Christian woman that God had ever known or could ever know and to make Him so proud of me that He wouldn’t reject me like so many others had, I tried really hard, I studied much Theology, became a pillar in the Church, always willing to volunteer, nothing was too much trouble but sadly I became confused and fell into sin hurting, God, others and myself. No God did not want me to do this He hates evil but when I repented from the heart He forgave me and restored His lost sheep into His fold and He leads and keeps me close to His side and when needed carries me in His arms of Love.
Being very confused I asked God for His wisdom and He gave it to me and I realised that no matter how hard I tried I could not live the Christian Life only Jesus could as He lives His life in me. I now choose His way because He empowers me to live and think according to His will, I’m set free and what He tells me is so wonderful that I often ask Him how can He delight in me but He shows me He does and I’m so thankful that He would never leave me He Loves me too much, He has told me so in my ways and my heart rejoices and I have found amazingly that even in the Storms of Life we soar together…. yes I hurt at times by the wounds inflicted through others but I sing too and my Joy overflows.
Recently I wanted to be one of the best Bloggers in the World, with your help and approval of course…. I’m passionate about everything I do, but it seems I have made so many mistakes and also misunderstood so much about Technology and now I even have a cruel Hacker and guess what WordPress although they can help are not God, so please pray that all the problems with my Blog will be resolved and thank you so much because your friendship in The Lord means more to me then any Award I could receive except God’s reward which I aim for with all my heart like Paul and many other Saints have done but you my dear Brothers and Sisters when we are in Unity are part of His eternal reward found only in Him….
Finally even with all the problems I have encountered in life a lot of them I caused myself, I’m very thankful to realise over and over again…That Jesus Christ is The Way, The Truth and The Life and when I Trust in Him as a child and not doubt His Truth or His Love, He leads me through whatever comes even evil and that regardless of what others claim He did not bring it to me! …God is Love and can do no evil nor does He willingly allow it but yes He tolerates it so none will perish and so all His Children will come to true heart repentance.
We Love God passionately and so we Love and need others, He Lives His Life in us…
We are His Body and He is our Head.
