Yesterday was my Dad's birthday ~Happy Birthday Daddy! I am so blessed to have 2 sets of parents that love my siblings and I very much. As I think about the relationship I have with my parents I cannot help but think about how far we have come. As a teen I am sure I gave them a run for their money and they stayed on their knees praying for GOD to keep me covered. Growing up I was disobedient and defiant to say the least. I was smelling myself and wanted to be grown....thank GOD for growth! As I got older I calmed down a lot and developed a beautiful relationship with my parents. Now that I am growing in Christ I think back on the relationship with my parents and I made a decision that I didn’t want to be disobedient any more. I know that GOD loves me and only wants the best for me...like my parents. I know that he will always protect me as long as I am obedient to his word.
Romans 2:13-1 says "For merely listening to the law doesn’t make us right with GOD. It is obeying the law that makes us right in his sight. Even Gentiles, who do not have GOD's written law, show that they know HIS law when they instinctively obey it, even without having heard it. They demonstrate that GOD’s law is written in their hearts, for their own conscience and thoughts either accuse them or tell them they are doing right."
I am still learning GOD's word so I can truly be obedient to HIM and the Holy Spirit. I ask that you pray my strength in the LORD as I pray your strength as well.
