Praise the good Lord Jesus Christ for waking up this saved one today uninjured, unimpaired, safely in his same bed under the same roof at the same beautiful place on the same beautiful creation of the Lord called earth ready to serve the Lord another blessed day NO MATTER WHAT!
Additional praises are given unto the Lord Jesus Christ by this saved one for ensuring to preserve this marvelous opportunity which He has so graciously given me here in Florida, despite the many mistakes I’ve already made.
Most importantly though, I praise the good Lord Jesus Christ for ASSURING this saved one that the Lord’s Holy Spirit has assured victory for this saved one in this venture NO MATTER WHAT!
In the face of all adversity, I must always remember the Lord’s assurance of victory both while I’m here and for all eternity for not only myself, but for all of His sheep. The fact that I might happen to be a black sheep in the flock still struggling with some besetting sin does not change that.
As far as how things are going right now with me, I will emphatically declare that they are going very well and it is only by the Lord Jesus Christ’s merciful loving kindness that such a reality has been made possible for me. There have been a few bumps in the road on the way to this point I will readily admit and the strength of my relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ has grown greater as each of those hurtles has been cleared. That is why I do not fear the notion of any further hardships that I am not prepared for in my future, because the Lord has ASSURED victory for me.
The most recent unexplained hiatus of mine from this project has given me somewhat of a sense of obligation to getting back to regular posting though, whether or not it’s a post of the same caliber that I was blessed with providing on a daily basis a little more than a year ago.
Funnily enough, one of the big reasons I’ve recently chosen to re-engage myself in this blog (beyond serving the Lord Jesus Christ and bringing glory to His kingdom on earth) is to improve my typing skills for work. Yes, that was quite the brilliant excuse, wasn’t it? Har har.
As expected, it has taken a good bit longer than expected for me to finally begin to get this job down but praise the good Lord Jesus Christ that He has ensured that the same patience I saw in the strong mentor who kept me sane through my tenure at the mountain city has remained. It has remained despite time and the new boss-subordinate element that has been added to our relationship here.
On top of my recent diversion of that free time and energy which I once allocated towards this project towards this new job that the Lord has blessed me with, I am also going to choose to intentionally exclude most, if not absolutely all, sensitive details about my day-to-day life here. Especially so if it pertains at all to the business.
“Sensitive” is going to be defined very broadly, in this case.
It is so wonderful to be able to finally be so occupied with something productive that I oftentimes find myself too busy to hate myself. That, on top of the fact that I feel as if I’m finally accomplishing something tangible with my life for the first time since my first community college class.
May the Lord bless everyone reading this abundantly, whether you like me and my writing or not.
If there are any praying people out there, please pray both for my mother and for my boss. Pray for peace to be given by the Holy Spirit upon their hearts and that the joy of true contentment would fill their souls this upcoming holiday season. Whether their peace is given by my safe absence from their lives or through that continuing and ever-expanding success that the Lord has promised to begin to give me this season becoming a reality or through nothing to do with me at all, this saved one begs the Lord Jesus Christ for this blessing to wash over not only those two very important loved ones of mine but also over everyone reading this.
Once again, I’ll do my best towards somewhat regular posting again and I sincerely pray that, should it be the Lord’s will, these last couple entries will get the ball rolling. Honestly though, if I had a choice between being able to regularly update this blog like I used to and keeping the job the Lord Jesus Christ has blessed me with having right now, then I’d instantly choose the job.
Let the Lord’s will be done, however.
Please pray for me. I did intentionally go out of my way to inflate this entry with an unusual amount of positivity, but I hope that won’t fool anyone into believing that I am still not dealing with hardships that I desperately need spiritual support for. Once again, a huge reason I am omitting those details is for the safety of the business I work for.
Regardless, things are going better than they have been for more than a year or two.
Go in Christ, friends.
