A good and perfect gift from the Father of Lights

Dear Readers,

Much time has passed since I last posted about the happenings of my life. I am currently in the process of finishing up my last two classes for my degree. After I take those finals and one more test, I will be finished with the coursework for my BA in Communications! YAY!

One thing I will miss, will be my Interpersonal Communications class. I was dreading this class, especially after I read for my first assignment. However, as I continued on through this course, I have grown to love the thought provoking readings and inspiration that I have gotten from this class. I have learned a tremendous amount about myself through this course as well as learning about interpersonal communications.

But, anyways, the main thing that I wanted to blog about was basically just a little short testimony. I have struggled and wrestled with my faith for many years now, and I hope in the future to continue struggling with it because I want to own my beliefs, no matter what they turn out to be. I want to have chosen for myself where I stand. I have even given some thought to the existence of God. I have always believed that there is a God. Everything that I have learned has backed that fact up. I have never understood how people could claim personal experiences as proof of God’s existence. However, through some reading I did for my Interpersonal Communications class as well as some journaling I did in response to that reading, I have concluded that I have a very personal reason for believing in a very personal God.

You see, God gave me Luke. I will never ever doubt the fact that Luke and I were put together through divine intervention. I do not deserve Luke, and yet he is my husband, this is evidence of God’s grace! I needed Luke in my life, this is evidence of God knowing my needs. I have no doubts that Luke and I were meant to be together, this is evidence of a miracle. How many other married couples can claim the same amount of confidence that I can claim? Even if tomorrow our marriage drastically changed, God gave me Luke as a gift for today, yesterday and yester-years. I can claim that I am as sure that God wanted to me be with Luke as I am sure of my salvation. Luke has been such a blessing to me and a gift. A very precious gift that I cannot imagine life without!

Thank you Jesus! and I love you Luke!

I don’t think God could have picked a better man than Luke to be the man I look to as a representation of Christ as the Bridegroom. Luke’s gentle and tender faithfulness mirror that of Christ’s never-ending, deep devotion to His Bride the church.

James 1:17  Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. (KJV)


About Melanie

My Being Purpose Statement: As a part of Christ's Bride and as one of His precious treasures whom He redeemed with His precious blood, I purpose in my heart to love and adore Him with all of my heart, soul, and mind (Matthew 22:37). I want to be beautiful in the sight of my Saviour, Jesus Christ. I will therefore pursue holiness (1 Peter 1:16) that I might worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness (1 Chronicles 16:29, Psalms 96:9) and go and proclaim His love, sacrifice and salvation to others who have not heard that I may have the beautiful feet of them that bring glad tidings of good things (Isaiah 52:7, Romans 10:15). My Life Purpose Statement: I desire to serve my Redeemer and Savior Jesus Christ throughout my entire life by ministering to girls and women. I pray that I will be able to bring many girls and women to the Cross of Christ that they may find salvation from a loving and gracious Savior. It is my heart’s desire to encourage girls and women who know the Savior to deepen their relationship with Him and to fall more and more in love with Him. I also want to serve women by assisting them in their everyday lives whether I am rolling up my sleeves to work alongside them or am connecting them with people, ministries, and or resources that will be helpful and beneficial to them. By God’s grace and power, through His Spirit, and for His glory will I endeavor to fulfill this purpose
