The Beginning

Starting doing beading in @1995 after getting alcohol poisoning while out partying with friends. It is a talent that God gave me to keep me from trying to kill myself (literally through binge drinking and then driving while drunk) From broken to Reborn, from lost to Found, God gave me this talent to make jewelry and I didn't realize how relevant it was to my life until I was listening to the radio praising God and this song came on (of course I forgot the name and such) but it talked about taking the old and making it new again. God did that with me as I do that with my jewelry! I love taking old broken pieces and recreating something new and exciting. If the necklace doesn't have earrings with it, I can make some to go with it. Romans 7:24 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of death. vs 25 I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. It only through Jesus can we be truly changed, He alone has all power to deliver us from the bondage of sin and give us new life.

Confident vs. Arrogant

What is the difference between being confident or just being arrogant? Confidence is having the humility and compassion (hey wasn't that something in yesterday's bible reading about how God is compassionate...interesting) to know that your answer to SOME questions can be wrong. Arrogance is believing you are never wrong - no matter what the question.
The questions regarding Christ and being redeemed/saved from an eternity of hell we should be CONFIDENT in our answer, knowing the truth in God's Word. But we shouldn't be ARROGANT because that will push those who need to see HIS light to close their eyes.
I pray that you are confident in your walk with Christ, sharing His compassion with those who seek it.
"It is hard to wait and press and pray, and hear no voice, but stay till God answers." - E. M. Bounds
Much love to you all!
