A Birthday Prayer – You Are His Sheep

white picket fence
April 26th, 2018 was my 63rd birthday and I thank the Lord for giving me life, allowing me to grow up in Sanford, Florida and have the abundance of love and joy in my life that I’ve received from so many of you who have already sent me birthday wishes.
I have two awesome brothers and three sister in loves with three nieces and one nephew. I love you Adrienne Baggs, Dena Curtin, Maretta Baggs & Clint Baggs.
It was in Sanford that I first climbed an orange tree in my backyard on 20th street, came to know Jesus as my Savior and a loving God. I dreamed of having a house with a white picket fence and being a wife, mother and grandmother.
I don’t have the white picket fence or the loving husband I dreamed about as a little girl, but God has given me the blessing of so very much more!

Well I know I don’t deserve it, but I have other sons and daughters the Lord has given me along the way.

I spend extra time on my knees for you Brenton Hagge!

The Missionary Heart
I dreamed of becoming a missionary, actually a nun when I got saved at the age of 12. After a brief time of losing my mind in high school, the Lord stepped in and rescued me as He has kept me from so much, so many times and has blessed me with friends and family all over the world. I’m so thankful that I’ve been blessed with this time here and I wish I could see and tell each of you that come to my heart and mind so many times… I have been blessed with so many memories, joy, laughter, and share in each of your sorrows, pain and sufferings.
Because I have been given the free gift of eternal life I will be able to spend it with those of you who know and love Jesus! I’m asking the serious question of, Do you know Him, Jesus, the Savior of the World? None of us are promised another day on this planet, but I’m asking you to ask yourself if you died today, where would you spend eternity? I hope it is with Jesus, so we can spend time together.
It doesn’t matter where you are, what you have done, or even what you think about yourself or what others think about you! All you have to do is humble yourself, and ask for God to forgive your sins (all of us are sinners – we can’t help our fallen nature), accept the sacrifice Jesus made on the cross, believe really that He rose from the dead and then ask God to help you to receive the precious gift of grace (Jesus as your way to eternity).

Please don’t stop there. Ask the Lord to refine you, fill you with His Spirit, and help you read and know His voice in order to be able to follow Him. Read John Chapter 10 over and over again until you believe you are one of His precious sheep. Read Ephesians 1 until you know the authority and power you have as His child.

This is my 63rd Birthday prayer!
Til the whole world knows Jesus I will be,
Searching for God’s Treasures,
Marlene Baggs Hoenig
