About to have a Spell

Well, I really don't know how to write this but I need to share it with someone and you guys happen to be it. This morning in my quiet time, I was minding my own business, reading the Bible and then it happened. The Spirit of God made me want to shout, perhaps even dance although I can't dance, and I can't stop thinking about it. Scripture has a way of doing that you know! The Word was God and the Word is God and it is alive, powerful, piercing. Written many, many, many years ago and it is as much alive today, true today and relavent today as it ever has been. Yes, I'm going to tell you what I was reading.

Philippians 3:1-11 Now I'm not going to write out this scripture for you, just open your Bible and read it for yourself, and I hope it causes you to feel the same as it did for me. "Rejoice in the Lord" I started thinking back on my life and the dumb and stupid things I've done in the past and to see where I was and now where God has brought me and folks, I just have to say "Thank you Jesus" I don't deserve what I have, where I'm at or anything at all, in fact I deserve Hell and I got Jesus. Now that ought to cause anybody to "Rejoice in the Lord". Then the Apostle Paul says "Look out" There are those out there who want to cause you to think "Well look at me, look at what I've accomplished, I'm somebody" Then he reminds me that prior to his coming to Christ, he was top dog, real he-man, very accomplished and he did every thing he did with zeal and passion and was considered to be great at what he did. I remember being good at concealing my real heart. I was a good sunday christian and a good devil the rest of the week. Now if Paul could look back at his life before Christ and say, "Wow, that was all just garbage compared to life with Chrsit today", I too must say the same. That prior life was just garbage and meant absolutely nothing, but life today, putting my faith in Christ is everything and besides everything, it's also eternity with Christ forever. Now tell me that you don't want to shout, dance or sing. That's enough to make a man want to get up and run around the room. Well, that is what is going on with me. Just Rejoiceing in the Lord. Now I'm expecting Satan to show up and try his best to bring me down and without Christ working in my life, Satan can and does do that. That's why I need Him most.

I've been having lots of those moments lately!! They make this old world just stink. The only pieces of heaven that keep me coming back to this earth are my family and my passion to cheerlead for God so that others might know what you and I already do! I can't wait to get in line to meet Paul and Peter; what heros they are to me.

I haven't had enough of those moments lately, but, I have had them. It's the most freedom you can feel on earth when the Lord sends that feeling your way!

I know you won't let satan ruin it for you Eddie.
