A Letter To My Anonymous Friend



Because today is ,"The Lord's Day"; I need to address a personal issue. This issue is my walk with God. I have been mocked many times concerning the joy I have experienced in being blessed by God.

We can all be blessed by God whether you believe it, or accept it. Psalm 18 verse 30 states that God's way is perfect, flawless and that He is a shield for those who CHOOSE  His refuge.  Isaiah 41:13 says that; "it is better to take refuge in God than to trust man."

I have been called a child, a little girl etc .  .  . actually, my condemners are flattering me because to see a child in me is to see truth and purity of the Holy Spirit of Jesus. In Matthew 18 verses 2-3, "Jesus says to come to Him as a child." Jesus doesn't just " appear ". He is the Alpha and Omega; the beginning and the end. Jesus lives inside of my spirit because I invited Him in.

I was born under God's curse of original sin, like everyone else. Because Jesus died for my sin, He paid my way back to a good relationship with God, the Father.

I am a Born Again, new creature in and through Christ. Acts 4:12 states that; "Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved". Proverbs 3:7-8 states; " not to be wise in your own ways, to fear the Lord and shun evil. This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones. Fear= Respect."

Yes, I have experienced sorrow and heartache, my life is far from perfect. Yet, my joy is of God's spirit. Phil 4:13 says; " I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me". Romans 8 says that; "those who live according to the sinful nature(ourselves/ flesh) have their minds set on what nature desires, but those who live in accordance with the spirit of God, have their minds set on life and peace."

The mind of sinful man is death, but the mind controlled by the Spirit is life.
In verse 10 the scripture goes on to say; "Christ is in you, your body is dead because of sin. YET, your spirit is alive because of righteousness."

Verse 28 says; "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose. For those God foreknew He also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of His son."

I choose to fulfill my predestination in Christ. No prophet ever rose from the dead, or died for our sins to give us life.
History records it, miracles, signs and wonders prove it.
Jesus is Lord and because I choose to dwell on His gifts, joys and promises, I am only proclaiming His blessings which are available to ALL!

I take my baggage to God in prayer every day because I know His power.
I am keeping this blog as a journal for myself, hoping it will somehow, someway help others as they have helped me. I am sharing my life story and experiences.

My dear readers, if I offend you, you can choose not to read my blog and share in my life .  .   . I will not be offended.

A priest named Nicodemus ( A Jewish Rabbi, Pharisee, Council Member), knew by Christ's signs that Jesus was indeed the Messiah. He came to Jesus at night and asked Him what the term "Born Again" meant. Jesus told Nicodemus; "not born of flesh, but of spirit/ "I tell you truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is Born Again." (John 3 V. 1)

"For God so loved the world that HE gave His one and only son, that WHOEVER believes  in Him is not condemned, but whoever DOES NOT believe stands condemned already. Because HE has not believed in the name of God's one and only son. " ( John 3:16) .

The word MAGIC is of trickery and illusion, which are Satan's tools. Jesus is life and truth. I don't believe I have ever said anyone MUST believe.

Dear Anonymous Reader,
Why don't you post your real name when you mock God?
I have a prayer request book, and I would be honored to add your name to it so I can pray for you!

My God is NOT "a god" . He is the ONLY God of salvation and of everlasting life. Choose today who you serve. Tomorrow may be too late to enter heaven.

I don't mock unbelievers, I pray for them collectively. People don't need to feel threatened by my beliefs. They are available to whoever asks.

Again, if I offend you, please don't read my blog, because it is not my intent to offend anyone with my existence.
I am who I am, take it or leave it.
I am proud to be a new creature in Christ, and of the gift of salvation from my Jesus!

I personally believe that the Christian Bible is God breathed, gospel truth.

As the last paragraph in the Bible states; " I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophesy of this book; If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book, and if anyone takes words away from this book of prophecy, God will take away from him his share in the tree of life and in the Holy City, which are described in this book. He who testifies to these things says; "Yes I am coming soon."
Amen. "

So, my Dear Anonymous Reader, as you stated in your comment to me,

 "Your "god" did not look down on you and say: Hey I like this girl, I'm going to give her a great life."

My God dwells within my heart and because of this I choose to dwell on the positive and good things which I have been blessed with in my life and small little corner of the world.

I will pray for you friend. It is sad to me that you are so bitter towards God, who loves you so much! I pray that you too will  someday know how blessed YOU are!

I love you in Christ, because You were created in His image and You are His masterpiece! :)

Happy Blessed Sunday Everyone!

" This is the day the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it."
Psalm 118: 24

With Love,

It brings me great joy to see the work of the Holy Spirit in your life, Sarah. I really will pray for Anonymous as I am sure that there are those who have prayed for me. God never promised us a trouble free life; just his peace and joy when we choose to let him into our lives. I made that choice because I trusted my mother and saw the results of her trust in our Lord. So...I pray that Anonymous will be blessed to be close to even one imperfect human being who has chosen to accept God's blessing.

The depth and breadth of your superstitions are staggering. Can you not discourse without quoting this,that,and on and on? Look-if you had been born to a different circumstance you might be quoting the Quran, or the Talmud, or the Upanishads. It is obvious that you have the need to believe in something supernatural and Christianity happens to be your refuge. This by a roll of the dice, one might say. Get over yourself.

Chris,

It is not unintelligent to have faith in a higher power. However, it is quite unintelligent to berate other people for what they believe in. It's called tolerance.....well educated people tend to embrace it.

Amen, Amen Sarah!!! Your patience and maturity in handling this situation are a sure sign of the Holy Spirit working within and through you. I'm sad to say that I don't read the Bible nearly as often as I should but your post inspired me to read John today and the reminder of God's love is so incomprehensible to us humans and yet we can be filled with peace & serenity when we choose to welcome God into our lives. Thank you for your beautiful writings. Have a blessed day!

Sarah,
I am so blessed by your testimony and response. Whoever this anonymous friend is and whoever attacks your testimony is clearly feeling insecure about their own life and are threatened by the peace and security you find in Christ. This is the only security that offers an answer to the questions and purpose for life that everyone on earth is trying so hard to ultimately find within themselves. Every other religion, whether it be islam, buddhism, mormonism,etc. all say that the answer is within what WE do, what WE say, how powerful WE are with our own strength. What they don't realize, and why they never find true contentment is that, like you said we are all sinners and we can't do anything good in and of ourselves (and that is biblical!) I am so inspired by your response and your Biblical wisdom and quotations that you used in this post. No matter what anyone says, remember what God says "For the foolishness of God is wiser than man's wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than man's strength."-- 1 Corinthians 1:25. "Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me."-- Jesus.
I love you Sarah! And can't wait to see what God continues to do through you through this blog!!
