Today a thought came to mind from the Holy Spirit, “There are No Secrets Kent!” God knows everything you think, say and do whether anyone else knows or not. Someday we will all stand before God and everything will be revealed, every motive, every thought, every deed, all will be laid out before God! Matthew 12:36-37 “I tell you, on the day of judgment people will give account for every careless word they speak, for by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”
But! The good news is, Jesus gave us a way to become completely clean. A way for our hard drives to be completely renewed and that method is called repentance. Go to God, and ask Him to forgive you of very sin you can think of. Be specific. Lay it all out before him and ask for forgiveness. To repent also means to turn away from. In the parable of the prodigal son the son eventually came to his senses and walked away from his life of debauchery and turned back toward his fathers home which was also his home. That is what God wants you and I to do. To turn and begin walking back home. Repent! and then receive the promised grace of Jesus.
My prayer for all who read this today is that God will lead you to repentance and that the power of the Holy Spirit will fill you and give you the strength and the desire to read God’s word daily, That you will be filled with the desire to spend time praying every day and that God will become a very close friend. Seek the Holy Spirit’s guidance in all things! God’s Peace!

Psalm 139:1-4 “O Lord, you have searched me and known me! You know when I sit down and when I rise up; you discern my thoughts from afar. You search out my path and my lying down and are acquainted with all my ways. Even before a word is on my tongue, behold, O Lord, you know it altogether.”
It’s real! Believe! love pastor kent
