By God’s grace, mercy and power:
- I love God the Father, Jesus the Son and desire to walk according to His Holy Spirit
- I am a dedicated and devoted child of God, and lover of Jesus for the past 4 years
- I am the bride and lover of Billy for the past 13 years
- I am the loving mommy of two precious children (7 and 5)
- I am a writer desiring to write only by the power of the Holy Spirit
- I am a speaker desiring to speak only by the power of the Holy Spirit
I am not perfect and I am OK with that, when I remember God’s grace is sufficient for His power is made perfect in weakness. I’m the type of girl that can’t even clean a closet without praying, I easily forget where I put things, even if I just set it down.
I realize I need an outlet…a place where I can share what God has been teaching me. I have felt prompted by God to start this blog and I am doing this out of obedience to Him alone. I don’t post unless I’m inspired AND prompted by God which will explain the sparse entries. Most of what I have to say has already been said; the words are in the Bible…they are just being revealed to me illuminating the darkest parts of my heart and mind, freeing me from the paralyzed state of bondage I sometimes put myself in, even though I have already been freed by the Truth: Jesus Christ. The name of this blog “Altar of Heaven” comes from the meaning of my name: arcelia. It wasn’t until recently that I realized the meaning of my name which reminded me of Romans 12:1
“Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship.”
This blog is just one way I worship Him-knowing God desires obedience above sacrifice and I LOVE Jesus which makes it easier to obey. These posts are pages from my journal I call them ‘stones of remembrance’ reminding me what God has done for me…what He has done for you.
I invite you to come and listen and I pray you hear His voice and respond…
