And I LOVE weekends. Today I am thankful....
for my Lord and Savior Jesus... He is by far the most precious part of my life. Nothing compares to the priceless privilege, the overwhelming preciousness, the surpassing worth and supreme advantage of knowing Him. My prayer today is that you will know Him too... not in a religious way, but in a wonderful personal way. He is coming back soon. I pray that if you read this today and have known in your heart that you need to make things right but have been putting it off... that right now, right here you will surrender your life. The thing is, its this simple and you can just talk to Him. You do NOT have to put on a show, be emotional about it, or be in a church to do so. You can be in your car, on the side walk or like you are now, right in front of your computer. You don't need any person to speak for you... God loves sinners and he cares for all of the world lovingly and watchfully. There will come a time when it will be very difficult to make this (most important) decision... so don't put it off... as God's grace is abounding today!

Usually when I share my heart on a spiritual level, there is not a lot of comments. Today, I dare you to tell me if this meant anything to you. And if ONE person made a commitment to Jesus because of what I wrote here, I would be in heaven.

Much love

This is a wonderful post Wilna. My relationship with the Lord is the most precious relationship in my life! Without Him I do not know where I'd be. He is faithful and being in His presence is the purest place I know. Thank you for sharing your heart so beautifully.

hi wilna

i love your blog. i love that it looks different almost every time i come here :-). i love your personal little stories about your life. and i love your creativity and scrapbooking style. but, what i really love the most is the way you use it almost every day to praise the LORD, and to show the world HIS love. i think your spiritual posts are the best. you are my blog-mentor.

and, you know that once before GOD spoke to me through you. so, today i'm sure HE is using you again to reach someone who needs it.

love you, girl!

Oh Wilna, Bless your heart sweet girl. I am always inspired when I pop in for my Wilna fix ... and it's the spiritual posts that touch me the deepest. Your words encourage and uplift. I began a personal relationship with Jesus some years ago but let me tell you that on the days when I am weak it seems you somehow heard God whisper the words I need to hear. You type them and I read them ... and then I rest easy knowing of His love and mercy. And I am in awe because HE does use other humans as angels along our journey.

Thank you for this post from time to time people have doubt, but He is there and He lifts us up when we are down all we have to do is allow him to enter our lives. You should already be in Heaven you have helped alot of seed to grow God planted them and you have gave the nutrients to grow on a lot of your blog readers (like Me)

God Bless you

Dear Wilna,

I read your blog because you share your heart on a spiritual level. There are many days when it seems the scripture you choose is speaking directly to me. I check your blog on a daily basis just to see what scripture has touched your heart! I try to include scripture in each post and I also write about the wonderful works of God in my heart! Your he{art} is truly a witness and testimony to the love of Christ!

caro said...

o Wilna, thankyou for saying exactly what you did today.
I have felt such closeness and support this week, and am loving the blessing of being closer daily, to Him.
Being sick, and busy, He gave me cpourage and even energy to do what was needed. and even then, there were lovely confirmations along the way.
I am so very grateful for the peace He places in my heart.
Blessings to you, your blog readers and your family. xxXX c

Dear Wilna,

One of the reasons I read your blog is because of your personal, real relationship with Jesus Christ. Many people talk the talk but fail to walk the walk. I could not agree with you more - Jesus Christ is coming SOON and religion will not suffice when we stand before the throne of God (many said Lord, Lord, but He said He never knew them) - we must have a relationship with Christ. Lord willing, I look forward to meeting you on those streets of gold one day. =) It is such a precious thing to know that all around the world there is an army, a remnant for Christ. Is there not a cause? There is a cause, to fulfill the will of God and to allow Him to use us to reach precious souls! It will be worth it all, we are going to see the King!

When you share so openly about your relationship with Jesus, it gives me encouragement to share as well! Your words are a blessing in so many more ways than you will know!

Once again I've been inspired by your words Wilna. I'm sure that God is busy working miracles through you. Even if you don't get a lot of comments on your spiritual posts - I'ms ure that's only because you leave us speechless with your insight on God's word! Keep them coming! :)

Darling Wilna, yes all your comments are so very true.I also read your blog just about every day. And although I think I am your biggest scrapping fan, I mostly read your blog for your deep spiritual messages. And yes, I really do feel that your messages are so directly from God and always so applicable to what I am battling with or celebrating! I thank God for you sweet Angel. Your ministry is amazing! Awesome how God uses your scrapping talent to reach others!!!

We miss you here in SA

I love how you share your love of Jesus Christ with the world! It is so simple, pure and true. It brings tears to my eyes because you speak the words of my heart. :)

Girl you rock. I met Jesus on my knees in utter despair about four years ago. I know what it is like to walk without God and what it is like to walk with Him. Let me tell you girl, there are no words to explain what He can do to your very being! Your light is shining girl, I hope others will be inspired to see what having a relationship with God, really knowing Him is all about. Praise you Jesus!
