Words cannot describe this!!
I wish all of you could KNOW what this is like as I am sitting here right now!
A Relationship with God is amazing!!!!! And combined with things getting healed and resolved in the Christ-life Ultimate Journey class, it is amazingly wonderful! NICE COMBINATION!!!!
Yeah, there are hard times and stuff, but it is different--EVERYTHING always comes back to that peace and joy of knowing that God has it ALL in His hands and that He really KNOWS what He is doing,
Did I write this one yet? I've written so much stuff that sometimes it gets hard to remember what I've said already!
At the introduction of the book of James, I wrote this: "Joy is not necessarily 'cheerfulness,' although often that is true, but above all it is a calm delight based on the foundation of Christ and unshakable confidence and TRUST in who He is."
A personal relationship with God is a far-cry from being a mere assent to the facts, although you have to believe that the claims of Christ are the absolute truth before the relationship with Christ takes form in reality and experience----experience rooted in the truth of God's word and correctly lived out in accordance to the Word of God, of course!
And maybe part of the reason why this is all so real and incredible to is because the desperation and emptiness that I felt before I was saved by the Lord's grace was also unlike anything words can describe. And when you TASTE of God's goodness and mercy, there comes a point of no return to the former things.
