Just As I Am

By   •   August 29   •   Topics: ,

A long-haired blonde from a southern university seemed to be enjoying a satisfactory student career when her grades began to slip. “Life had become one long case of the blahs,” she confessed later. “I wasn’t walking around with a steady load of blues, but I wasn’t enjoying life. Small things made me blow up. I met some kids who seemed to know something I didn’t know, but I couldn’t get in on it. We went to several meetings, and one night the speaker said that we don’t earn God’s love. He takes us as we are. It was then I realized it wasn’t a matter of clocking up a certain number of hours doing good deeds. Instead, I had to make myself available. Through faith, I had to let Him take over. It came together all at once, when I accepted Christ as my personal Savior. I know that God is in me in everything I do. My life has taken on a new dimension.” Does your life have this new dimension? It can! Just begin now with Jesus Christ! When you make this beginning, it will be your first step toward realizing personal fulfillment, meaning, and joy.

Prayer for the day

By faith, loving Father, I ask You to take over every part of my life—draw me closer to Your Son, my Savior, Jesus Christ.

    How much pain, suffering and depression will it take before you finally acknowledge that there is a much better way. You’ve never been too bad to come to Christ and ask him to forgive you. Start your new journey and find the happiness, joy and peace that you’ve yearned for ….with Christ by your side forever.

      My 25 year old daughter died 11 months ago and I am living a life of depression. Tell me what makes you do sure there is a God? I am not judging I just need to know how you know. Is my daughter with God? How do I know she is really in a better place? I ask and I hear that I have to have faith. I don’t think thus way. For me everything needs to fit in its place; it needs logic, somethinks tangible. Thank you

The pain of losing a child is beyond words. We have passed on your comment to our team and hope you will look for our response in your email.

    To let go and let God is a tall order especially with Satan and his minions pulling you in the opposite direction. Sometime a conscious effort of listening to the Holy Spirit is required to form this wonderful habit. Don’t go anywhere you would be ashamed to take Jesus and always ask yourself; (WWJD) What would Jesus do.

    The message I heard through the word today blesses my soul. May the Lord continue to advance His work through His servant and all who are working with him.
