Ram In the Bush

Genesis 22:13  Amp

Then Abraham looked up and glanced around, and behold, behind him was a ram caught in a thicket by his horns. And Abraham went and took the ram and offered it up for a burnt offering and an ascending sacrifice instead of his son!

 

 

 We sometimes wonder why we were chosen to remain in this life, we ask,"why me". When you know in your heart that God is the author and finisher of your fate,and knowing this should inspire you to get into His word, and find out what the will of God is for your life. Knowing that He is not a respector of persons, If He did it for Abraham, He will do it you. Remember He is aGod of second chances.

 

But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. Hebrews11:6 NKJV

Do you have "Ram in the Bush"?

 

My name in Laura

I always thought of myself as a Christian but now I understand that beliving in Christ is not the same as living your life as a Christian. I had a low self-esteem and was a very defensive person. I surrounded myself with people just like me, basically living a lifestyle void of any real meaning. People who were my "friends" behaved as I did. We escaped into drugs, alcohol and meaningless sexual relationships. I became extreamly irresponsible, thinking I could talk and bully my way through life. I lost my children, my family, jobs, and none of this could stop me.

Homeless and alone I slept in a vacant lot. One morning I stumbled and fell to my knees. I looked up to the sky and cried for Gods help. From that spot I was guided to a place called Women's Wellspring. From there it was step by step, with the help of people who weren't asking me for anything. Strong, kind, gentle, people who it seemed had one thing in common, while of different denominations, they all had a strong faith, and they were Christians.

I reached out and help was there. God guided me and gave me choices, this time I was ready to make different choices. With those choices came evidence of His love for me. I spoke with a Pastor who had shown me kindness in the "lost years". I openly accepted Christ as my Savoir. I learned to pray, not for what I wanted, (although I sometimes slip it in) but to accept His Will for me. The direction of my life changed.

My healing process has began and has been going forward since that day. Of course there have been valleys and hills, in each step I take today I give thanks to the Lord. My life was spared in a very dramatic way and I believe for a wonderful purpose. My relationship with my children has been healed; I have a loving husband, fantastic grandchildren, a loving extended family, respect of co-workers and friends.

The Lord was always with me. Today I have no reservations about who I am. I am a Christian, a child of God who looks to Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savoir.
