I am suspending #BeautyWeek until next week…I think. We will see. God gave me something to say here today, so I am going to be obedient and say it. It’s his blog anyway. He just allows me to have some fun on it sometimes:)
If you are new to this blog, I live in St. Louis MO. I grew up minuets from #Ferguson, were Michael Brown, Jr lost his life last Saturday. Since this has happened, God has been showing me how quickly things can change.
I mean think about it, a week ago Michael was alive and well. Probably thinking about starting college on Monday and ready to enjoy his last weekend before the school year starts right? You could drive up and down West Florissant with no problem and you could have gotten a hot dog at that QuickTrip. None of us could have anticipated not only what happened last Saturday, but the massive response from all over the world to his death.
I saw and retweeted this tweet earlier this week from one of the reporters with the Riverfront Times here is St. Louis:
Wow THANK GOD for that right?? This made me feel so good. What if he would have waited? TWO WEEKS AGO!
Guys we have to remember that this whole scene that is playing out is just the devil doing what he told us he would do. He comes to steal, kill, and destroy and we have seen all three in a matter of DAYS. We can’t procrastinate any longer.
So today, God wanted me to share that if you have been putting off giving your life to him, don’t wait another second longer. It’s that important. If you know God loves you, and he sent his son to save you, and you have not confessed Jesus as your Lord and savior, I want you to pray right where you are this prayer. Do not put off accepting Christ another second longer. We just don’t know what will happen next.
God in Heaven,
I come to you in the name of Jesus. You said in your word (Romans 10.9) “..if you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” I am confessing with my mouth and I believe in my heart that Jesus is the Son of God and He was raised from the dead for my justification and I receive Him right now as my Lord and Savior. Thank You Father, for saving me. In Jesus name I pray.
Now its Friday and most Christian churches meet on Sunday. Find a bible believing/teaching church to attend. You know that friend that keeps asking you to go to church…or that holy rolling co-worker? GO with them THIS Sunday.
If you are in the St. Louis area, I invite your to my church Ark of Safety Christian Church in St. Charles MO.
I hope this blesses someone. I know it must be for someone because the Lord has me all off my posting schedule and writing and editing the night before my class starts! He is trying to get to someone.
Keep praying for everyone here who is affected by this tragedy. Pray for Michael Brown’s family. Pray for his friend that was with him and all the other witnesses who saw this. I can’t stress enough how much prayer is needed.
