    Sunday, July 11, 2004 – Lessons Learned

    God spoke to me today, and I had ears to hear as He told me that I am valued by Him and that I’m a work in progress.

    I learned that there are two types of pride:

    To think that God can’t work without us; and
    To think that God can’t work with us (because of things past.

    During the first 32 years of my life, I experienced the first type of pride. During these past 24 years of my life, I’ve been experiencing the second type of pride.

    The lessons learned today:

    1. God is the Great “I AM”, YHWH.
    2. I am who I was. I will never escape the past. I have been shaped by the past, and I am a product of my past. The things that I have willingly done, and the things have been done to me.

    3. I am who I am. This statement can be a declaration of defiance – people will just have to accept me as I am and love me as I am; or a declaration of acceptance – I choose acceptance of who I am.

    4. I am who I can become. I am a work in progress by the Great I am, my YHWH!

    · Galatians 5:22-25 – Fruits of the Spirit.
    · I Corinthians 13:1-7 – Unconditional love.
    · Matthew 4:19 – A “fisher of men.”

    Praise the Lord from whom all blessings flow! AMEN!

    Love in Christ, Jeannette
