A Journey

Christian Author Writer Quite a few years back I was desperate for love and comfort. Then one day I heard his soft and tender call. My heart said "Yes, Lord" and I started down the road with Him to a new and better place. For a short season it seemed like I was going around in circles and running into roadblocks. . . I said "Lord, this is surely not the right way" ..He said "Just trust me and keep walking, I will make crooked ways straight"...And I became stronger and felt very joyous and happy. ...then a little father down the road I found that old friends didn't care for the new me. I said "Lord, what am I doing wrong?" ..He said "Nothing, I love you, behold old things are passed away and all has become new"...And I got stronger and happier still...Then I lost my job, my car and my house.....I said "Father, how am I going to make it now?" He said, trust me, I want your whole heart, I will prove myself to you" And He carried me through with longsuffering joy....A a few more miles down the road we began to get closer and closer. He would walk with me and talk with me and tell me I was His own. He would sing sweet songs of deliverance to me.

Song of Solomon 3
... You have ravished my heart, my sister, my spouse; you have ravished my heart with one look of your eyes

I was beginning to look around me at things of my old world and was noticing how they were not as charming to me as they once were. I said "Lord, I think I'm brand new. l don't even know this new person I've become. I like people I've always despised. " He said "Didn't I tell you if you would just believe you would see my glory?....Now follow me and greater things will you see..I will be a wall of fire around you and you'll learn to love people who have despised you. I will restore all that can be restored. Call unto me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things you do not know!" I said "Lord here I am, guide me in your way everlasting"

Romans 1:
... For in it God's righteousness is revealed from faith to faith, just
as it is written: The righteous will live by faith
