Atheist Holiday

"The fool says in his heart, "There is no God." They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds, there is none who does good" (Psalm 14:1).

April Fool's Day ~ This was my holiday at one time. I was a fool. I was in willful rebellion against a God I did not believe in. Well, if truth be told, I was in willful rebellion against the God I knew existed. I just didn't know it because of the nature of my rebellion. And that is a scary thought.

As Shane Barnard writes, "I'm haunted by a God that has the right to ask me what by the nature of my rebellion I cannot give."

I'm so very thankful because...

I was dead in my sins and you came in
You made a way when there was no way
You covered heaviness with garments of praise
You wrote a song, and you're singing it over me
I feel a dead heart beating now
This revelation makes me want to shout that
Jesus has been sent
and
Everything is different!

Love in the Truth.

Praise God!
And I think I was probably in a similar place that you were at one time. Even now, the me part sometimes wants to rebel and I must take refuge in the Spirit to keep me right.

Thanks for your message
