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! ♥
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.
17 This was to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet Isaiah:
18 “Here is my servant whom I have chosen, the one I love, in whom I delight; I will put my Spirit on him, and he will proclaim justice to the nations. 19 He will not quarrel or cry out; no one will hear his voice in the streets. 20 A bruised reed he will not break, and a smoldering wick he will not snuff out, till he has brought justice through to victory. 21 In his name the nations will put their hope.”
700 years before Jesus’ birth it was foretold that He will be the Hope of the world, He will be the servant and the king, He will be the just one and the victorious one. Our future without Him does not exist, not in the way it was purposed to be. Our Hope is in Jesus and JESUS ONLY.
25 Jesus answered, “I did tell you, but you do not believe. The works I do in my Father’s name testify about me, 26 but you do not believe because you are not my sheep. 27 My sheep listen to my voice; I know them,and they follow me. 28 I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand. 29 My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand. 30 I and the Father are one.”
Not believing is the same as not having hope. Faith transforms and lifts up our hearts. Knowing that we are taken care of is a great relief for all believers. We can go through trials, but what ever we encounter on this journey of life our God and our Faith gives us strength to overcome. How great is His message of hope to all who believe: “I GIVE THEM ETERNAL LIFE, AND THEY SHALL NEVER PERISH; NO ONE WILL SNATCH THEM OUT OF MY HAND.” Rejoice, be glad and share this message of hope with the whole world! ♥
What an amazing, indescribable and unfathomable Love does God have for His children?! He sent His only Son to suffer and die on the cross for us. Who are we to be deserving of such Love? We mess up every day; we think, we say and we do things that set us apart from God’s Love, yet He still cares and He still loves us because we are His children. We are. Let’s never forget that. Let’s always remember that through His Grace and our Faith in Him our lives will not end at the hour of death, but will continue into eternity. ♥
