In Other Words Tuesday


“Heaven must be in me,before I can be in heaven. ”
by Charles Stanford: God, the precious breathe of heaven, blew life into me. I am His creation, formed by His gentle hands. But, I chose to be a sinner, living in the world, and for the world. But, when I was 25, I finally woke up, and realized that my life was not my own. I was making a total mess of the beautiful life God had created for me. So, I fell on my knees, and cried out to God. I asked Him to please forgive my sins, and wash me clean. I wanted Him to live in my heart, and to guide my every step through this life. Praise God for His grace, He now reigns on the throne of my heart. There is no turning back for me, I do not want to travel down the highway to hell, I want my luggage to say heaven bound. You must be willing to have the maker of heaven ruling your life, and living in your heart, if you ever hope to be in heaven. Please choose to travel along with me my friends, heaven is our destination.

Thank you for your testimony. It is exciting to see how God works in peoples lives.

The first Mr. Linky I did for today came up with Wednesday's walk instead of todays post. I don't know if there is any way you can delete that first one. The second one is the correct link. Sorry for the error.

Thank you for hosting today.
