1 Corinthians 6:9-11

Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do you not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.
Lord I am so blessed and thankful for Your salvation. Thank You that You chose me and pursued me every day of my life. As unworthy as I am; You are diligent to call me Your own.
Lord, considering that Your Word declares that homosexuals will not inherit the kingdom of God, You know this is my “thorn in my side.” With my whole being, I do not want to cut myself off from You and yet even as I married Karen, You continue to beckon to me. You remain faithful to me. You even bless my requests that You help me love and care for Karen and be an honorable wife.
The God I read about in the Old Testament doesn’t seem to be the God that cherishes me and never leaves me; Who always shows me that You are loving me and guiding me and quick to remind me that I am washed, sanctified and justified by Your Spirit. Among many things, I have to file away with the things that are only known by God until You choose to reveal them.
I am truly humbled by You. There are times I want to rejoice, yet I am speechless—like right now.
Psalm 95:1-2
OH come, let us sing to the Lord! Let us shout joyfully to the Rock of our salvation. Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving; let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms.
With all the labels that the world wants to put on me: Female, Caucasian, American, Obese, Chronically Ill, Gay, Independent…and so many others…Beloved Child of God and Wife seem to be the only ones You choose to keep at the forefront of my mind.
In a world that wants to judge me and condemn me and maybe even rightly, according to Your Word, shun me, You are the first to lift me up and call me Yours. Even in my own mind, I understand I am not worthy. But You remind me that I am Yours and You choose to save me and know me.
Psalm 21:6
For You have made him most blessed forever; You have made him exceedingly glad with Your presence.
Lord please test with Your fire, my household, now rather than on the Day, so that we may replace the wood, hay and straw with Your presence, which is so much better than gold, silver or precious stones.
Please continue to help me become more like You and love others as You do; not with my heart, mind or body, but with Yours.
Isaiah 12:2-3
Behold, God is my salvation. I will trust and not be afraid; For YAH, the Lord is my strength and song; He also has become my salvation.

My name is Summer. That is how you can call me. I hope that I am a blessing to you. I am not perfect. I will fall again. But I am forgiven.

Do you know Jesus? Do want the Holy Spirit to fill you and give you understanding and salvation? Ask Him. Want someone to pray with you? Contact me.

If you would like to know Jesus as your friend, but want to make this amazing commitment by yourself please pray something like this:

Thank you Jesus that You are the Son of God, the God that created heaven and earth. Thank you Jesus that You came to earth in the form of a man so that You would be able to empathize with my humanity. Thank You that You did this in order to fulfill the promises You made at the foundation of the world.

I realize that I am a sinner and do things that hurt myself and keep myself away from you. Thank You that You died for my sins so that You could defeat death and bring me into Your life. Please forgive me.

I ask You to be Lord of my life. I ask you to heal my hurts and show me what my new life, empowered by You looks like. Thank You for Your mercy.

Amen

The Lord is with you always.
