A 12-year Old Note

Found this note inserted in my bible my mama gave me. Wow! This note is over 10 years old. My mom liked to write verses on pieces of paper to give to me. She always kept reminding me to put God's word in my heart and claim His promises in my life. As I found this note, I realize that the best legacy my mama left me with is this:

(o) having a relationship with god rather than religion,
(o) knowing Him through His word, and
(o) experiencing His love through His Son, Jesus.

I pray that I will be able to carry on that purpose and pass on that legacy to this younger generation.

The Upcoming

As I was combing my hair, preparing for work, something in my spirit or shall I say the Holy Spirit impressed in my heart:

"Great persecution and oppression is coming your way." 

The Lord asked, "Do you understand why you have to go through this?"

A pause I gave, then I said, "Yes, Lord. So that Your glory will be revealed. And Your power, I will witness."

Father God, though You may allow persecution and oppression in my life, I am confident that You will never leave me nor forsake me, and You will be with me and will help me.  I trust in You. Glory to Your name!
