Let me take this opportunity to welcome you once again. As you know, I am Marcy Riley & I want to help you find your purpose; help you worship the Lord as well as help you to understand that he is the Potter and we are just the clay.
In a nutshell, I am a God fearing young lady that is full of unconditional love.
Allow me to help you find your purpose in life as there is nothing better than living for Jesus. God created us for worship; after all, he is the potter and we are the clay. He can mold me into being the Marcy that he wants me to be; this allows me to worship him in spirit and in truth.
I can remember life without the Lord and looking back now, all I can say is what was I thinking, what better way to spend my life than being filled with peace and joy. Yes, trials and tribulations will come but with Christ in the vessel we can smile at any storm. There is a scripture that I love, well a few actually, but here are a few: "Be still and know that I am God" ~Psalms 46:10~,another says: "Stand still and see the salvation of your Lord" ~2 Chronicles 20:17
~, another says: "Is there anything that I the Lord cannot do?" My friends, as you read this, I just hope and pray that you understand how much it is that the Lord loves you, how much it is that he cares for you. Another scripture that I love says: "The battle is not yours", this is also found in 2 Chronicles 20. So you see, no matter what we are faced with, My God is always there if you would just let him be God.
Since I have accepted Christ as Lord and saviour of my life, I have acknowledge that the Marcy I knew can no longer exist. The bible does say that "All things have become new" it also says that: "Be not conformed to this world BUT be transformed by the renewing of the mind..." ~Romans 12:1-2~
As such, I try my uttermost best to live a life that is pleasing to God and I only wish the same for you.
Today I am totally in love with the Lord and when I realized this, I started to tell EVERYONE. There is nothing greater than being in the presence of the Lord and resting in his love.
"In the presence of the Lord there is fullness of joy and at his right hand there are pleasures forever more."
Sometimes when I think about the Lord, about his goodness or about his love I just smile to myself. When I sense his anointing power, I just want to cry tears of joy. I just cannot explain how he truly excites me. It is just like "WOW!
I know that some persons believe that you can't love a God that you cannot see and that it is impossible to know his presence or to even talk to him and have him talk to you; but let me ask you this: how do you know when you are sick? Do you see the illness that is in your body or do you feel it? Who says that it is an illness and that you should pay attention to it? Well, in same way that you feel the pain in order to know that you are sick, we know that God is real because we have experienced him, we can sense him. The bible speaks alot about the presence of God(http://www.heavensinspirations.com/word-presence.html) , if there wasn't a presence to experience, why then would the bible make mention of it? God moves from within as he stirs up such peace, joy and love in our inner most beings.
In the same way that you seek medication because you feel sick, or you visit the doctor, in the same way we should seek spiritual food (the word of God and his holy spirit which is the living water) and attend church in order to come together as one and enjoy his magnificent love; we come together as one in order go get more and more and more of him as we worship and adore him for his grace and mercy.
Afterall, Matthew 4:4 says:
"It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God"
and John 7:38 says:
"He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water."
While Hebrews 10:25 says:
"Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together..."
It is truly amazing, breathtaking really. Don't you want to know him more too? I yearn for him, I am so thirsty for so much more that I don't even know what to do with myself. I give myself completely to him to take control and use me as he wishes. I don't need anything else because my heart yearns... My God is the air that I breathe... He is my passion in life, he is my reason for living.
If you are considering or thinking about God right now then by the grace of God I am doing his will for us all to be disciples of men. Don't ignore his call, don't ignore his voice. Revelations 3:20 says: "Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if any man hears my voice, and opens the door, I will come in to him, and will dine with him and he with me."Don't you want the Lord to sit at your table, don't you want to stand in his presence? I can only imagine what it would be like when we walk by his side in the new city.
I found myself having this unconditional love and I didn't understand where it came from. I started to have this great need to help others, this great need to tell others about God. What better way to spread his word than using the web? So many persons can learn about my Lord with just one click. Because I love you without reason, I want you to feel what I feel, I want you to experience what I've experienced. I want you to understand God and what he requires, I want everyone to enter into Eternity. I want everyone to understand, feel and know what it means to truly worship My rock, my fortress, my father, my Savior and my Comforter. What it truly means to worship my God. I am literally drinking from my saucer as my cup has overflown.
Where did this love come from? This urge to be an help to any and everyone that needs it? This desire to please my God and not cause him to hurt by my foolish actions, where did it come from? Let me tell you, this love, this joy, this peace could have only came from God, my King as it was not always there. I remember being overseas and feeling very unhappy, nothing that I did gave me that joy. I did not feel like I belonged anywhere, I felt like the outcast, I kept wondering, why am I here, will I ever reach my goals, will I ever be happy? Yes, I was living in the USA the land of opportunities, yes I had friends, yes I was in a relationship, yes I had the love of my family, yes I had a good job and I was attending college; BUT my friends, let me tell you, I searched and searched for years and I only found that real JOY when I came to Christ. When I felt him I knew instantly that he was what I was searching for all along. As a matter of fact, I can remember when I realized that what I was feeling was not just love, but I was in love with God. He was on my mind for majority of the day and I kept myself in line with his word. Today I am filled with so much peace, so much love, so much joy. I literally don't know what I would do without him; without Christ we are nothing, we are just mere dust which the wind drives away.
I literally have no regrets in my life. How can I say this? It is the love of God that is within me that allows me to see every disappointment as an opportunity for success. It is the love of God that is within why I am continually forgiving and seeing the best in others. It is the love of God that allows me to understand life and try my best to live to the will of God. Afterall Ecclesiates 3:1-8 tells us that everything has a season. I am 26 years old and this is the best decision that I have ever made. I look at life as a temporary situation and everything that happens while I am here is for a reason. It all happens so that I can learn from my mistakes and use them to enhance myself as well as others.
I am filled with so much joy now that I just want to jump, touch the sky and say:
"My God, my rock, my fortress and my deliverer:
I really hope that my website blesses your heart and gives you that extra push to give him your life. I can assure you that you will never regret it.
God is the potter and we are the clay; therefore, while living for Jesus, it is important that we have tell each other of the trials that we have overcome.. Sharing God's goodness allows us to truly worship and to find our purpose while helping others to do the same. This of course can only be done out of love.
