A captivating tale is a story that captures the heart. But, My Story, is the heart; the heart of the matter and all that matters, for it is the beginning and the end.
“”And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.” Revelation 21:6-7 KJV
Those who’ve thought they’d lost it all can find new life in Me.
A new life is not a continuation of the old, it is new. Why then would you want to carry old thoughts into the new, as if they were unfinished business? Contemplating your past, as if it hadn’t passed, holds your vision backward and hinders you from moving forward–a cause for stumbling.
Turn your face toward the Son,
feel the warmth. I’m not behind you–I beckon you forward. Embrace this new life as if the other never was. Manage your feelings before they manage you!
“How precious is your steadfast love, O God! The children of men take refuge in the shadow of thy wings. They feast on the abundance of thy house, and thou givest them drink from the river of thy delights. for with thee is the fountain of life; in thy light do we see light.” Psalms 36:7-9
“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you; abide in my love. If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love. These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full.” John 15:9-11
“–Jesus spoke to them, saying, ‘I am the light of the world; he who follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.'” John 8:12
“If any one serves me, he must follow me; and where I am, there shall my servant be also; if any one serves me, the Father will honor him.” John 12:26
“Do you not know that in a race all runners compete, but only one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it. Every athlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable. Well, I do not run aimlessly, I do not box as one beating the air; but I pommel my body and subdue it, lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified.” I Corinthians 9:24-27
“Jesus said to them, ‘The light is with you for a little longer. Walk while you have the light, lest the darkness overtake you; he who walks in the darkness does not know where he goes. While you have the light believe in the light, that you may become sons of light. John 12:35-36a
“I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.” Revelation 1:8 KJV
