When you fall short today, you are still the righteousness of God. This is because your righteousness comes from Jesus. In the same way that a beautiful butterfly cannot morph back into a caterpillar, once you have been made righteous by the blood of Jesus, you cannot morph back into a sinner. Knowing your righteous identity in Him then gives you the power to overcome every sin, every addiction, and every bad habit!
Joseph Prince, Day 36, 100 Days of Right Believing
Even when it looks like Jesus is nowhere to be found, He is there. He will never leave you nor forksake you. He is always providing for you and protecting you. Jesus is so beautiful my friends. Behold His face!
Birds don't attend flight school. They were created to fly. Fish don't attend swimming lessons. They were created to swim. Seeds don't attend tree growing conventions. They were create to grow trees. Whatever you were born to do was built in you by God AT BIRTH! Whatever you are called to do is already inside of you. It takes the Holy Spirit to draw it out. I'm telling you folks, the Holy Spirit can introduce you to your true self.... if you allow Him to!
"A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand, but it shall not come near you.
Only a spectator shall you be [yourself inaccessible in the secret place of the Most High] as you witness the reward of the wicked."
Psalms 91: 7-8- AMP
The final book in the series is here! Alcatraz The Restored Pearl is available for sale today!
The transformation process has not been easy for Alcatraz. Forgiving the past, creating new habits, and staying optimistic about the future initially seem impossible to the recovering addict, but to her surprise, Jesus continually proves His faithfulness to her. The more Alcatraz trusts Him with the small and large details of her life, the more His promises come to pass, and she begins to experience restoration in every part of her life for the first time since she became an orphan. Her relationships, finances, health, confidence, and even life purpose blossom in a positive direction. Finally, after almost ten years of trials and tribulations, Alcatraz discovers God's plan for her since the day she was born: the abundant life.
"The road I’ve traveled has been hard. Pastors make you think Christianity is easy and transforms your life into a Cinderella story. One kiss from the prince and the caterpillar turns into a butterfly. That may very well be the ending for those who hang on long enough, but it for damn sure is not the process. Nobody preaches about the testing, trials, and tribulations thrown at you after receiving Christ."
