Let us return to the Lord

“Let us examine our ways and test them,
and let us return to the Lord.”

NIV Lamentations 3:40; KJV Lamentations 3:40

In times when I didn’t know God, I went through hard times and trials and it was so difficult to bear it all. I was breaking under the weight of problems and constant worries, many nights I cried myself to sleep and didn’t have much hope for the next day, much less for the future. I felt left alone and desperate until I found Jesus. Everything turned around for the better from that point on. It didn’t happen over night, but as I learned to trust God and pray and seek His will for my life, it made an enormous difference. This is my humble call to all of you out there who are struggling in any way. Examine your ways. Examine your heart. Is there something missing? Seek God. Invite Him into your heart, give it all to Him. Return to Him. You will feel the change in your spirit and in your heart. It will be joyous, uplifting and GOOD!

A Fortified Tower

” The name of the Lord is a fortified tower;
the righteous run to it and are safe.”

NIV Proverbs 18:10; KJV Proverbs 18:10

Read Proverbs 18

As a fairly new believer I am just amazed about the fact that our God is always there for us. Living without God and leaning on your own strength all the time is very hard. Going to the Source of all creation and love is essential to have a happy and purposeful life. All I want to say is just that I am so grateful that God has touched my heart and revealed His love and His grace to me. I am grateful for loving Christian people who have been (and still are) there for me and who have shown me with their actions Jesus’ love and compassion. I feel safe knowing that my God is there for me every second of my life. I run to Him every day, I thank Him, I praise His name. I am covered by His unfailing love.

Turn, Lord and deliver me

“Turn, Lord, and deliver me;
    save me because of your unfailing love.”

NIV Psalm 6:4; KJV Psalm 6:4

When the dark clouds cover my horizon, who do I turn to? When the enemy knocks at the door of my soul, who do I turn to? When I’m desperate in my human weakness, who do I turn to? I turn to the Lord, mighty and strong. He knows my heart and He knows my troubles.  He is my Light in the time of darkness. I cry out to the Lord: “Deliver me Lord, save me because of Your unfailing Love.”

Thank You for loving me Lord!

“The Lord is gracious and compassionate,
    slow to anger and rich in love.”

NIV Psalm 145:8;  KJV Psalm 145:8

Oh Lord of Love, Mercy and Grace to You I lift up my eyes. Thank You for loving me Lord. Thank You for finding me in the midst of an unbelieving crowd. Thank You for opening my eyes to Your Amazing Love. Thank You for setting me free. Into Your mighty hands I submit my life and my will. Let all I think, and all I say and do be an expression of Your Love.  I will love You Lord  and I will praise Your Holy Name all the days of my life. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

We Have Been Saved By Grace

“6 And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, 7 in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. 8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast. 10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”

NIV Ephesians 2:6-10; KJV Ephesians 2:6-10

How limitless and how amazing is God’s Love?! Solely by His Grace we have been saved. It is the ultimate Gift to the humanity. And it is meant for everyone, every person that walks this Earth. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. No amount of our own good works will erase our sins and bring us to Heaven. None. Through Christ Jesus only, we are saved and made worthy of everlasting life. Believe in Jesus Christ. Start your journey with Him today!

The Vine and The Branches

“I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. 2 He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit,while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes[a] so that it will be even more fruitful. 3 You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. 4 Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.”

NIV John 15:1-4; KJV John 15:1-4

I will remain in Christ Jesus. I will not be shaken. I will not conform to the world. The world is full of deception. I am a branch of Jesus. I will stand in His Word. His Love will cover me. His Truth will guide me. His Grace will save me. I WILL REMAIN IN HIM.

Christ Liveth In Me

“I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.”

KJV Galatians 2:20; NIV Galatians 2:20

When we believe and start following Christ, there is a powerful transformation happening in our hearts and our minds. We are no longer ourselves, but we are newly created in Him. We are truly born again! This change is powerful, it is divine and it’s hard to put into words. There is a  thirst to pursue God’s ways in all our actions, our words and our relationships. By ourselves we’re just a bud, in Him we develop into a beautiful, fragrant flower. It is all HIS GRACE! Those who truly believe will understand. For those who are not there yet, I can only say: Come to follow Jesus to experience life in a whole new light!  Peace and Love.

Galatians 2
