Salt Of Earth Light Of World

"You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled by men. "You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:12-17

He Makes ALL Things New

"And He who sits on the throne said, "Behold, I am making all things new " And He said, "Write, for these words are faithful and true." Revelation 21:5

Yesterday I was covering the front desk at work, as I sometime do, and I was re-reading 1 Corinthians which was I was totally engulfed in. Of course people would pass by and I would nod and to say hello and try not to break concentration on what I was reading. Then a man walked in the building and walked up the stairs towards the front desk. I lifted my head to smile at him and he smiled back. I quickly went back to my reading but noticed that this man had a familiar smile. I looked again and to my surprise it was my husband!!! In all the years I have been with my husband he has never surprised me with visiting me before, and along with that he brought lunch for me and my friends! I looked at him and I was filled with Joy to see him and immediately there was a smile in my soul! The reason I write this is because my husband was recently saved and God makes ALL things new  I have been witness to TRUE transformation in my husband’s life! From breaking addictions to simple ways of thinking, all this in weeks mind you. God proves faithful to those who cry out to him. I can’t tell you I had great faith in that I would ever see this day and most of the time I don’t feel I was very patient, but God is merciful and He brought life to my husband despite my worries. It has set a new fire to my spirit and recreated a whole new relationship with not only my husband but with God himself. I am most blessed to see the Power that my Jesus performs in transforming a life to a new beautiful glory! Thank you Jesus for making all things new in my life!
