I believe the verse Matthew 26:26-29 is an example of how Jesus was trying to show them how to be united and even though a couple verses before this one Jesus mentions that someone will betray Him, yet, He still goes forward and has supper with them as they all come together as one by eating the bread and drinking the wine. To me, it just shows that Jesus was telling us in the midst of uncertainty and in a time where there was fear of what the future was to bring, we are to come United breaking bread as we face our trials together, praying and taking part of communion. The word communion is defined as sharing with each other intimate thoughts with one another meaning that we are to come to one another in our most very distressful and times of need to pray for one another and encourage one another, but we must take the step to reach out and even in that feeling of shame or shyness or whatever holds you back, we must overcome to have a true chance of being obedient to God. Is there anything that is holding you back from having this communion? Surrender it to Jesus right now.
Lord, King of Kings! I come to you right now feeling inadequate, feeling shame, guilt, feeling embarrassed and shy, and I surrender all these feelings to you so, that I may be able to move forward into communion not only with you but with my brothers and sisters in Christ, that may be able to boldly stand and ask for prayer when I need it, boldly declare your promises that you’ve given me and rest in your peace that surpasses all understanding. I surrender so that I can be lifted higher and closer to you. In your name I pray Amen.
I really don't know where to begin. I love God. I have so many reasons and I wish I could share every single one because truly it has shaped me into the person I am today. I love to write. I first started writing when I was 15, started with a journal and poetry then songs. As I got older I continued with letters and poetry. Then one day I just stopped.(fast forward) I joined a woman's group earlier this year and slowly I started to hear God's voice telling me to write. I can assure you that it was something I didn't feel like I wanted to do, I had way too many questions and doubts about if it was even possible and if I was gifted enough. Well, long story short here I am starting a blog. I love reading other people's blog's, sometimes I read things I don't agree with or have a million opinions about but I always read with an open mind and I always ask the Holy Spirit to be my guide when I read or write. For me, it has been a way to see the bigger picture of what God is trying to tell us. As you may have guessed my faith will have a big part in this blog if not all part, God wants to tell you something and I have made a choice to be led by the Spirit to bring forth this message. I am not here to convince anyone about who God is or scare you into a religion, simply, I am here to tell my story and to be used by God to share whatever it is he wants me to share with whoever reads this. I welcome everyone and I welcome questions. I will not engage in arguments about my faith or religion. I am who I am and I don't need to defend myself or prove anything to anyone. I come with love and respect. I hope that in this new journey I'm embarking on you as well find yourself stepping into something new and amazing!
