...to be like Jesus...

...to be like Jesus...

…of God.” ~ Oswald Chambers


We are chosen by God…we do not choose. If we are truly disciples of God we do not have the time to be “purposing” to be a disciple, we would simply be following.

“I have chosen you” is what God says about us. Chambers states in today’s devotional that it is something “we cannot get away from, we can only disobey this, but we cannot generate it”. Meaning we cannot do anything that would cause God to choose us over another.

” The drawing is done by the supernatural grace of God, and we can never trace [back] where His work begins.”

The supernatural Grace of God…Grace, the unmerited favor, gift of God.

There, by the Grace of God, go I.

Is anyone listening? Salvation and the love of the creator is by the Grace of God! He just Loves us!

Blessings All.

Welcome, I'm Andrea ... HOPEannFAITH ... I write and take pictures as a way of expression. These are gifts given by a loving and indulgent Father, to a headstrong and stubborn daughter, with much to say. A semi-retired social worker/secretary, I now call myself a writer. I've published one internet article and written many blog posts. However, publishing does not make one a writer, anymore than taking a box camera to the park makes one a photographer. What makes one who and what they are? Well God for one ... formed me before the foundations of this world (Psalm 139); and many, many years after putting away my passion for wordsmithing and picture taking He gave it back ... in droves. I am a culmination of my choices and experiences. It is here that my experiences color the world in print and color. It is my goal to reach just one soul a day with love ... encouragement ... understanding or just letting that soul know that they are not alone where they are today. This is about creating ~ all of it. Creating a HOLY and SACRED place where the ugly truth can be healed and the beauty of a moment or a tear can brighten a day for the experience. Why HOPEannFAITH? Hopeannfaith is my inner child, and she is maturing, as she should have done all along. She is learning all about how Faith fulfills Hope. She is learning how to live. HOPEannFAITH ~ the wonder twins all wrapped up in one, me. These are my Journey Journals ~ written and visual. I welcome your company. I welcome your friendships. My Journey is in the light ~ although I have and will share the shadowy corners and the dark ~ so you know that you are never alone there. If we hold hands in the dark, and we walk, side by side, through the shadow, we will reach the Light together. In relationship with one another and with the Light. Blessings.
