Q: Why do you trust in God?
A: Because He has proved Himself faithful, trustworthy and truthful to His Word, the Bible.
Q: Why is He worthy of so much praise, worship and focus?
A: Because He made everything we know about, even you and I, and still loves us amazingly.
Q: What makes you so adamant that you are right about God?
A: 1. If you look objectively at the world, those who obey Him are blessed measurably. 2. His nature proves it in its glory and perpetuity. 3. The Bible has never been proven incorrect in any point despite much effort to try. 4. God has fulfilled every prophecy up to the end times prophecies, which will be fulfilled very soon.
Q: Aren’t there many ways to God and therefore heaven?
A: The only way is through the grace and acceptance of Jesus Christ as our sinless sacrifice and baptism of water and Spirit. The only way is Jesus.
Q: How do you know?
A: The Bible said it and Jesus Christ said it and again, it has been proven very reliably to be the truth.
Q: Do you ever doubt?
Q: Why not?
A: Because my own life is a testament to the truth of it all. When I obeyed the Bible and stayed close to Jesus through prayer, Bible reading and obedience, God blessed and provided for me and molded me into a humble and therefore useful follower of Christ. And He gives me such a peace and joy and sense of loving family andfulfillment/contentment that I have never experienced apart from Him.😄❤
Resting in the arms of Jesus is where I have been a lot lately. The world is moving quickly and not necessarily in good internal directions and seems everyone seems stressed out or busy and distracted. My friend was in an accident where the joker pulled out in front of her in the rain then took off while her car was totalled. And she had a baby in the car with her. Many of such selfishness lately. Out to dinner we look around and everyone is on their phones or tablets for kids and I wonder why they waste money going out when they could be in a closet at home doing exactly the same thing. This widespread addiction is out of hand and aiding the distraction quota.
So, I breathe and rest peacefully in the arms of Jesus, my Savior and friend. The Maker of everything is still in charge, has still won the battle against our enemy, loves me and you tremendously, and is coming back to get us soon. I rest in His peace and joy and I can tell you that I make time to pray and read my Bible and be still with God and it is beautifully serene no matter what else is going on. He is what matters and I am so content in Him.😄❤
When Jesus is believed and asked inside a contrite heart, He joyfully enters and bring the fruit of the Spirit with Him, along with freedom to experience the fullness of His glory and love. He asks for our hearts and faith and gives back infinitely more in return. He knows full well how weak we are, how fragile, how temporary our bodies are. He is God and we are not. So I say again Praise be to Jesus Christ my Lord!! And thank you, Jesus, for the amazingly beautiful gifts!!!😄❤
Being yourself involves your Maker. He made you with certain gifts and traits. Never try to be more than you are, different than you are or less than you were designed to be or you will not have peace. Aceept your Maker’s perfection of design in you and bask in contentment of His wisdom in making you just as you are. And because He loves you so much, love yourself too, love Him back and love others. And that simple truth and working philosophy of life is the key to contentment and peace and beauty/glory in your life now and into eternity. God is most important. Then be yourself for Him.❤
I knew I had experienced calm for too long. It was coming. I was not anxious but braced. And through this day’s storms, I maintain my peace and joy because God helped me and has given me that gift. What storms in particular all happened today? I will tell me if you agree to pray for me specifically about them.
1. We had to attend a viewing of my sister-in-law who passed two days ago.
2. While at the viewing the dog pushed through a screen window and got out I had to leave the viewing and go home, return him home and return to the viewing.
3. My daughter came down with a horrible fever and the flu right before the viewing.
4. We discovered a localized-for-now infestation of termites in our home- oh no.
5. Saw my ex on the way to the viewing.
Needless to say, while in mourning the death of a loved one, a lot has happened in this one day. And up to yesterday, we had been experiencing a long calm. So here is the storm.
And I have complete peace and joy and feel fully loved. It is all in God’s hands because I put it all there. I have peace in my storms today. God is way bigger than any storm. I am not worried. I did everything I could do after the best thing, which is pray, and then I prayed again after doing my part. Peace is upon me. I am drenched with it. And I am fully thankful for it. God is exceedingly good, friend. ❤ ❤ ❤
Waiting used to be excruciating for me. I really had an enormous problem with patience. It took many hard and difficult (seemingly impossible at the time) lessons to learn it. Now, I have finally learned the lesson that God wanted me to learn long ago to wait on Him in His peace. And it all started with really grasping that the awesome God of the universe loves me and is truly always here with me. Why am I in a hurry? I am with God everywhere I am. I can rest in His love anywhere and wherever I am, no matter what I am doing. And so I have grown up a lot and am definitely calm and at peace in the wait. I wait with the Lord and for Him. What more could I want?❤
When your soul needs a boost
And there’s nothing going right
And the dark creeps on in
Seems to engulf the light.
Give yourself a light boost
With an intentioned heart
And serve someone with joy
And relight your own light.
No longer wait for another to help
When your soul needs a boost, create one for yourself.
Create it with prayer and find someone to help,
Something that needs done and do it yourself.❤
