Look beyond me

My life in Christ changed at age 21 although I was saved in my late teens. I didn’t fully realize all that I have in Christ at the time but have been on a journey that has taken me through some deep valleys. I know what it’s like to want to soar with the eagles and have your feet in the miry clay.  I hope to share what God has done in my life for His glory as an encouragement to folks who are struggling.  Not because of me but because of Him and unbounding grace and mercy that rescued and restored me when I thought there was no hope.  I am forever grateful to learn that being saved is not an experience, it is a life. His Life.

    • Lori, it’s matchless grace. I can’t tell you what freedom means to me! It will take my lifetime to explain it.

  2. Hi Deb,

    We had a slow day here today, so I was able to read your blogs!!! I LOVED them!! I soooooooo enjoy writing myself, and I DO spend much time just (creatively?) thinking. As you know, it is OK as long as we keep our thoughts bounded by God’s eternal truths! Thank you for sharing your heart with the world, and may the Living and True God CONTINUE to richly bless you with HIMSELF, just as He shall for all eternity to come!

  3. Wow! Deb….Just getting to know you through your blog. You are an visionary! Your words really grab at my heart. Thank you for sharing and giving your Glory to Him! Luv you my sister!

  4. Thank you, it’s still a journey unfolding. I am praying about and seeking more ministry in my life. There is nothing really tying me down so I am surrendered to go wherever GOD leads.

    • I’d like to say I am not perfect and much of my story has come through the fire and the cross …. I am aware I am a sinner saved by grace that astounds me and humbles me. Wow, what a mighty God.

  5. When someone says that something in them is broken I now understand that. I am humbled by the almighty hand of God myself right now. The one thing I do know is that God is my high tower and I came into this world with nothing. My anchor holds and my faith is strong because I refuse to doubt. I am truly thankful for it all. How else can I be molded. By definition molding requires change and to resist change is futile.

  6. I’m thankful to have stumbled on this blog. Your words are very inspiring. As someone who grew up in church but wasn’t saved until just a couple of years ago, I really connected with a lot of what you said in here. I look forward to reading more. Thank you for this blessing.
