Growing in Christ, Daily         ....Jenny Wren

For many years I 'thought' I was saved all I could be saved. I had gone to church ever since I was a child and have been learning of the Lord, but one night after my husband died (after a long illness,) I was praying for God to fill my longing. I just knew there was 'more' than I had at that time.

I had prayed for fulfillment of His Love. He answered my prayer in such a precious sweet way, when I finally accepted Him as my personal and very best friend and love. He has been first ever since then and will always be!

It is such a peaceful feeling and reassurance. I was filled with an icy-hot feeling that started at the top of my head and flooded over me, into every nook and cranny of my soul.

It was the most beautiful feeling I have ever felt in my lifetime. Since then I have known I will never be the same; since that precious night that I gave myself over completely to God - completely withholding nothing from Him. I praise God for reassurance He has given to me in such a personal way.

I soon after that, became the know-it-all Christian, and set myself up as judge and jury of each (so-called Christian) which I inspected with a magnifying glass, until the Holy Spirit reminded me that "You were at the same stage for years, just a few days before, and you did not know it until it was revealed to you, that there was more." That hit like a bomb. I broke down and cried my frustrations out - for my stupidity, for judging my precious brothers and sisters. I indeed was more gullible than Peter. I could have lost every friend I ever had by judging him or her.

The Holy Spirit, will teach them, as He is still teaching me, day by day. I have found that "if you just open up to the teaching, the Holy Spirit is there to lead and guide you on this wilderness path we are all on.

We are learning each and every day, as we stand on mountaintops of life in our joy, and we look out ahead of us, on the path toward Heaven. Just remember that there is a deep valley down between each of those mountaintops and it is THROUGH these valleys where our learning takes place sometimes in the shadows of death all around us. But as we come out, see and realize that we did just that; we come out!

The Lord was with you, leading you THROUGH it all of the time, and you have learned once again from each and every experience. Each and every trial of life, you have been through bears a lesson to be taught. You must realize the lesson and accept it from each trial. If you do not, you are bound to REPEAT the journey in another valley. When trials come, ask God right then, to show you what is to be learned here in this valley. Trust Him and learn it well.

Just remember that God promised there would NEVER be more than you can bear, because with every trial there is God's way out.
