*Let this God inspired writing...from His heart to yours; teach you how to gain Christ
in a greater way...through great moments of affliction.
There was a time, when I had everything I needed in life...at least this is what I thought at the time. The only thing...was even though I seemed to have it all; there was still an emptiness within me. Later in life...the chambers of my heart began to experience even more emptiness...as much loss began to take place...the loss of all I once held so dear to my heart. For many years of my life, it seemed as if the chambers of my heart began to feel, as empty rooms within an old home. There was no life or anything that could reveal that this heart within me was alive.
Through time, I did come to see that God was cleaning out all the clutter of my heart; so that there would be room for Him, to not only come and live there; but also room for Him to work in my life, in the way that He had planned, since the day He had created me.
As I began to accept the loss and the reason behind it all; knowledge and wisdom began to flood each room of my heart...a wisdom and knowledge that only came from Jesus Christ. As each chamber of the heart began to fill up with His loving presence; the emptiness that once resided there, was now becoming a thing of the past.
This transformation never came easy...and it not only came about through great loss...but also through the long and enduring moments of pain and deep heartache, which actually became a cleansing of the heart; that new growth might take place, even deeper within the heart.
Now I look at the past needs and desires, as something worthless...for these moments of suffering and great loss, has allowed me to gain Christ in a greater way, while finding Him in a real way...for now it's my faith that has truly connected me to the greatest being ever.
Now I have found this way of life to be the only way for me to know Christ; for as Christ walks me through these moments of affliction; we are now sharing a moment, when He was brought from death unto life, while I have been brought from bondage, into a new life through Him...where one day, I too will attain unto the resurrection of the dead...Praise God!!
