a new beginning

October 10, 2016

“Now I will tell you what the Lord has declared:  He said to me, ‘You are my (daughter) (son).  Today I have become your Father.  If you ask Me, I will give you the nations…'” – Psalm 2:7-8a, New Century Version.

If you have given your life over to God, He has become your Father.  Now what is your purpose?  To get to know Him.  You will learn more about Him as you read His love letter to you, the Bible.  There are a lot of versions out there that are easy to understand.  Get either an e-Bible or a paper Bible.  Personally, I love the simplicity of the following translations/ paraphrases: New Century Version, The Message, New Living Translation, The Living Bible, and the New International Readers Version.  I recommend you begin reading daily, starting with the New Testament straight through. The beginning is the book of Matthew.

Talk to Him about what is bothering you.  Open up to Him and tell Him how you feel.  I do better writing it out or talking out loud.  Find a good church that will teach you the Bible.  You’ll be able to meet people who can pray for you and encourage you in this new walk.  As time goes on, He will put a people group on your heart.  He will show you how to talk to Him about them, as well as practical things you can do to help them through their struggles. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves.  First of all, let me welcome you to the family.  I encourage you to make those important steps and to stay open to what our Father has for you.

Maybe you’ve been in this relationship with Him for a long time.  What demographic has God put on your heart?  Young adults? Teenagers? Senior citizens? The homeless? The poor? Those in prison and their families? The sick in the hospitals? People serving in our military? The military families left behind during deployment? The people in another country? God says, “If you ask Me, I will give you the nations…”  What does that mean for you?  Ask Him.  🙂
