When I was about 6 years old, my parents purchased a gift for me which still resonates to this present day. They presented me with an encyclopedia. It was a somewhat surprising purchase since I was not an avid reader at that time. But I soon became one. I had forgotten, but my parents reminded me that after I received the gift, I would spend every free moment reading the encyclopedia. There is no question, the encyclopedia ignited my love for learning.
I am grateful to my parents for the foresight they had in providing me with the proper resources and surrounding me with a supportive environment for learning. Learning was not a task, it was a joy.
God has also surrounded me with a supportive environment and given me His resources. He has placed me in a Bible believing church, surrounded me with a church family, and has provided the Bible to instruct me. Most importantly, through belief in His Son, Jesus Christ, as my Lord and Savior, He has given me His Holy Spirit to keep me in His ways.
His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence...
2 Peter 1:3 (ESV)
My parents provided me with the resources to learn. God provides me with resources to live. And it is all for His glory!
Praise His Holy Name!
Love and trust the Lord; seek His will in your life.
