Be it hereby resolved:
That I serve a God who never changes, never has and never will. His nature is not dependent on my understanding. My view of Him will not be determined by my circumstances.
But God died a horrible death to save me from eternal damnation. He chose to save me because I was incompetent, helpless, and hopeless. For some inexplicable reason I appealed to Him in this state and His love for me is a gift.
That I will never forget my capacity to sin and I will always be amazed at His capacity for Grace.
That I am a powerful person because the King of Kings delights to make me strong. Living by Faith, I choose to live in the power of each moment rather than regret my past or fear my future. My life may be exciting or satisfying, but not necessarily comfortable or safe.
That my life will demonstrate Love and Grace more than any other virtues. I may consider, but will not be satisfied by rules, religion, denominations, or conservatism.
That my home is where He is. By His design, I live here and He dwells in me. However, soon, my residence will be in a different dimension. I accept these truths even though they are a mystery to me.
That my life will continue after I die on this earth. Death holds no power over me or the ones I love. I will never stop longing for the place which I have never seen.
