One Defining Moment

One Defining Moment

One defining moment in each of our lives
That make our life have purpose, that make us feel alive
One defining moment which way before our birth,
God has a plan for each of us so we may feel our worth

One defining moment we fit into his plan, the one we were
created for, there’s one for each born man…

Sometimes when we are open, we may be truly blessed,
To know that one small moment, that brings us happiness
One defining moment and sometimes there may be more
If you’re open to the master’s call, help me Lord, not to ignore

Sometimes we may be open and sometimes if we are not
God uses us to help another fill their special spot
So on the days you wonder, why you have been brought here,
That one defining moment will help to make it clear.

Comment on One Defining Moment
I remember my one defining moment. I had opened a Bible for the first
time when I was living in Belize. I remember becoming interested but I
was still a skeptic. My first prayer was to ask God “I want out of this
jungle, help me find a way back to the U.S.” That was my first tour in
Belize.                          .

He answered my prayer, we came back to a beautiful home, I started a
ladies accessory shop. I was living the American dream. I kept reading the
Bible, seeking, knowing that there was so much that I needed to learn.
I was frustrated but I kept seeking.

One day, something happened. It is hard to put into words. I didn’t hear his
voice, I didn’t feel him touch me but I felt his presence. I felt his love.
A silent voice said “I am with you always”. Silent because the words I
heard did not come from me, I did not know that the verse was in the
Bible. The other thing that happened, all at the same time was that my
heart leaped. All was unexpected.

That was my defining moment. I have since had many moments with the
Lord, but that was the first. I became a believer, after feeling that presence,
that love, my whole life changed.

Do I still sin? Yes, but that voice that I heard “I am with you always”
makes me run back and confess. That was almost 50 years ago. In all that
time he has been faithful even when I wasn’t.

You will seek me and find me
when you seek me with all your heart
–Jeremiah 29:13 (NIV)

Eternity

ETERNITY

My thoughts on eternity,
Hard to fathom how it will be
It is a promise God gave me
To live with Him eternally

God sent His Son, a sacrifice
The lamb of God, he gave His life
A price so great had to be paid
Couldn’t there have been another way?

I can’t explain or understand
Someday it will be revealed
How God had it all planned
Why Jesus came to intercede

Thank you Jesus for the cross
Without the cross I would be lost
When God looks down, what does He see
It is Your blood, that covers me.

Life with no pain, no grief, no tears
Age of no importance there
Faith gives me certainty
My life awaits eternity.

Comment on Eternity

I am a child of God. My eternal life will be in heaven.
I love to meditate and imagine how incredible my life will be.
Thinking of seeing Jesus face to face, to see the one who gave
His life for me makes my heart flutter with excitement.

Living in His presence for eternity.
No sin, no fear, no injustice. Only love.
I lead my life thinking of eternity. No matter what happens
in this life nothing will change the glorious future that awaits me.

All God has ever done in my life is shown me how much He loves me.
My part was to allow Him in.

It was His love that planned creation, that planned redemption.
It knows no failure. Nothing will change His plan or purpose.

As my friend Ken Cayce said. “The greatest gift that we could ever
receive is the gift of eternal life with Jesus. To know we would be
separated from Him for eternity would be more hell than I could bear.
The only life worth living is with Him.”

Ecclesiastes 3:11 NIV
He has made everything beautiful in its time.
He has also set eternity in the human heart, yet
no one can fathom what God has done from
beginning to end.

Attitude

ATTITUDE

My attitude determines what my day will be like.
When awakening in the morning if my first thought is of Christ,
No matter what lays ahead I know He’ll make it right.
At times it is not easy, life can be such a fight.
My attitude determines what my day will be like.

This life is a journey where I am learning how to trust
My attitude will determine, will I adjust or disrupt?
When my life goes into chaos, as it so often does,
Will I say Your will be done, or will I say enough?

I know when I am tested God is working in my life
Maturity and growth will come about with strife.
Attitude is the key, it changes life from dark to bright
God will take care of the rest, if my attitude is right.

Comment on Attitude

Life is 10 percent what happens to us and 90 percent
how we react to it.

My attitude determines so much of what happens
everyday. Anyone that I come in contact with can be
changed by my attitude.

Winston Churchill said
“Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference”

If I develop an attitude of thanks, giving thanks to
God knowing that He is working always for my good,
I learn to trust Him and that brings peace and joy.

I have talked about and read about trusting God.
It wasn’t until the trials came that I really knew what
it meant. Trusting to me was peace when everything
was falling apart. An attitude of patience while you
wait.

This verse says it all, this is the attitude that God
wants for me.

Galatians 5:22 ESV
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy,
peace, patience, kindness, goodness,
faithfulness, gentleness, self-control;
against such things there is no law.
