A THORN FOR ME

Just like the apostle Paul, I asked God to remove my Thorn, but He said my Grace is sufficient. “I must boast, although it does not do any good. I will go on to visions and revelations from the Lord. I know a man in Christ. Fourteen years ago – whether in his body or outside of his body, I do not know, but God knows – that man was snatched away to the third heaven. I know that this man – whether in his body or outside of his body, I do not know, but God knows – was snatched away to Paradise and heard things that cannot be expressed in words, things that no human being has a right even to mention. I will boast about this man, but as for myself, I will boast only about my weaknesses. However, if I did want to boast, I would not be a fool, because I would be telling the truth. But I am not going to do it in order to keep anyone from thinking more of me than what he sees and hears about me. To keep me from becoming conceited because of the exceptional nature of these revelations, a Thorn was given to me and placed in my body. It was Satan’s messenger to keep on tormenting me so that I would not become conceited. I pleaded with the Lord three times to take it away from me, but he has told me, “My grace is all you need, for my power is perfected in weakness”. Therefore, I will most happily boast about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.(2 Corinthians 12:1-9)  A thorn in my flesh so I will not boast of myself, but that I may boast of Jesus Christ in my flesh, ” His Grace is sufficient.  A thorn so I may boast of the power of God to the Revelation of Jesus Christ at work in my spirit. “your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven”.

 Well, another Jewels of Nuggets for the Soul.  Praise the Lord!

Greeting to all my friends, friends to be in the future. I can't believe that I am here, blogging has never been a passion of mines. To my surprise, I am very anticipating this venture. I must say this upfront "I am a Christian ". God called me out to preach the Gospel Truth as it is found in the Holy Bible. I am set aside and chosen for Kingdom Ministry. I now realize that my life has never been my own, my life is to fulfill the purpose of God by spreading the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ, to the end that some or many may be saved from their sins. My service to preach the Gospel is my labor of love unto God, and it is a privilege to be chosen for this end purpose. For ALL OF MY LIFE, He has been preparing me for His end purpose, and now it is revealed to me how I am to use the jewels of nuggets that He has been dropping into my spirit for this purpose here and now. Growing up I liked to read romance books, and believe it or not, I would write little love stories. And I must say they were pretty good. But praise be unto God, He was preparing me to write His Love story. "God is Awesome". I did not see this coming but I am very excited for this challenging opportunity to serve in the Kingdom of God. I am a born again Christian. I love God, He is my heavenly Father. "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life". John 3:16 So my friends shall we meet in the end? And now abide LOVE!
