My friend, Dickey Porter, gave the meaning of GRACE from the Strong’s that’s really good and will go with my posts for today: grace- “the divine influence upon the heart and the REFLECTION IN THE LIFE!” I love that, reflection in the life! That is the divine empowerment and enablement that works out in our life what He’s done in our heart! When He touches your heart with HIS LIFE your life automatically changes. (Col. 3:1-4)
Today, Friday June 7 2013, is exactly the day and the date “39” years ago, June 7, 1974, that my life was forever altered and change through a car accident that brought me into a “divine encounter” with the Lord Jesus Christ! The next 30 days in a Shreveport, La. hospital brought me into an awesome awareness of the greatness and goodness of our God, not just what He did in my life, my body and soul, but in my HEART!
This is a “marking point” in my life, just as Paul the apostle, always in this testimony everywhere He went, “I was on my way to Damascus…” I don’t go back to this in sadness or sympathy, even though it was tragic in the sense of two lives, including my brother’s, and two others whose lives were changed forever. But it is a “reminder” of the amazing and wonderful GRACE OF GOD that thrust me into my destiny. Will write more on that later and how it affects our ministry to this day!
Romans 8:28- And we know that ALL things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called ACCORDING TO HIS PURPOSE.
Col.3:4- When Christ who is our life, is revealed, so shall we be revealed with Him in glory.
