The vehicle became a symbol of everything that occurred in my life at the time. I’ve been out of school, piled up and the emotional rift. The vehicle was in the field, all buried behind our house, gathering rust and thought to be gone forever. No one can believe that it will become a reclaimed project and be routed back.
OFFICIAL AND THEN GOD SAID UFF DA AND HE CREATED NORWEGIANS SHIRT, HOODIE, TANK TOP, SWEATER
I will never forget the dream that I had at the time. I feel that my life has ended. I have no place to go. My hope has been off. In that dream, the Lord has spoken to me. He told me he didn’t give up on me. If I trust him, he’s going to lift me up with the power of resurrection and give me a fresh start. I’il start over.
Sure, in the spring of 1983, I was back in the right direction. With the help of the Lord, I graduated from university, is studying seminary, and received a call to be the pastor of a small church. With the help of my mortal father, Gremlin also recovered. The hood has fire scars, but it still runs like new and takes me to the sacrament.
That car is not beautiful but it’s such a reminder of the Lord’s redeeming love. The Lord can pick us off the scrap pile and give us a new contract of life. Nothing, no one, is beyond the possibility of restoring and giving his second chance. The apostle Paul declared that there could be no way to stop us from the love of God! I believe it.
The Bible is full of stories about God reclaim lost lives and use them to bring his love to Earth. The Lord does not find perfect people to tell your story. He’s looking for people like you and me. We have wounds, bruises and scars. He reclaims us, cleanses us, and sends us out as a reminder of the resurrection of God.
Our founding fathers were united and turned 13 distinct colonies, each with its own independent spirit and culture, into a unified republic. This unity (great experiment) binds the colonies in their diversity as their belief in the Lord. The United States was established as a nation under the leadership of the United States God.
Look back at 140 years of American short history in our bloody civil war. Six hundred and twenty thousand were killed, and every four soldiers had a battle, never returning home. Only God can unit best our country in our diversity after the carnage. Unity occurs only because America is a nation under Christianity
Back now 60 short years. Pastor Martin Luther King Jr. Was able to impact the change in that turbulent period because the US remained a Christian nation, blessed by the Lord.
