When you hear “Kickoff Day” you may tend to think of a game involving an odd-shaped brown leather ball, a fall weekend surrounded with friends and eating some really good food.
My Kick off day is a little bit different. Today I am lunching my blog. I have spent the last few hours studying and soaking up my Lord’s words, delighting in my spiritual food. Along with my physical food, two cups of hot comforting coffee with a couple sweet cookies dunked in for good measure.
It has been a dream of mine for many years, to share my story of what God has done in my life. Last fall the Lord embarked on a journey with me to reveal my deepest need. To fully understand and truly accept his great love for me and strengthen the one relationship that is most important. Our Father – Daughter relationship. Yes I’ve been saved for over half of my life on this earth. Yet there was still a small block wall way down deep covering a portion of my heart. Some big hurts had stayed in the core of my heart so deep inside and so rooted, I could barely sense their existence. My Lord saw them clear as a day, my Abba, the gentleman that he is, started to do some gardening in my heart and exposed the root rot that was there.
Among some other pains, the largest issue was unforgiveness toward my biological Father, who had abandoned my mother and I, while she was still pregnant with me. I will be posting about that story, how God’s love and his spiritual adoption of me – transformed those feelings of rejection into forgiveness, next week so please stay tuned.
I am excited to share my new blog, daughter reconciled, with all of you.
This blog is mostly dedicated to share stories of God’s transforming power of Love, Forgiveness, Redemption and Healing. I am humbled to share of how God reconciled me – a lost orphaned daughter to himself, in hopes that you too sweet sisters, will allow God deep in your hearts to begin the work of reconciliation of your hearts to His.
” Therefore if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The Old is gone, the new has here! All this is from God, who reconciled himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: That God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation.” 2 Corinthians 5:17-19 NIV
