Do You Feel Alone?

It’s not hard to imagine many are suffering through loneliness right now. Even if you live in a large family setting, loneliness may take hold of your emotions. You feel you just don’t connect with those around you.

Loneliness makes one believe they are empty and unwanted. Lonely people may also believe they are undesired and often, they build a barrier around themselves.

If this sounds like you, please know you don’t have to feel this way anymore.

God is faithful!

God’s Creation – Genesis

Let’s face it, creation is a mystery to all of us. No one knows exactly how God formed/established the earth and massive solar system–but He did. He tells us in His word that He did. So as a believer in Christ and all that God is, I take Him at His word. Christians like myself look past the unknown parts of this complicated story and simply place our faith in His truth.

I don’t question how I can smile and talk into a small electronic device, then somehow my image and voice travel through air and appear on your screen. It’s not something most folks can easily explain, but it happens. For God, believers trust the history of His perfection that we read in the Bible. And in this history we find passages of God’s truth shared with His people.

So believers, called to live by faith, follow God’s truth in the Bible, which begins with the wonderful story of Creation in Genesis.

God’s Gift to Mankind–JESUS!

Jesus Christ did not come into the world to condemn. Jesus came to be a friend to all that are willing to receive Him.

Revelation 3:20 Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.

Like a friend tapping  on your door waiting for you to answer; Jesus taps at your heart, waiting for you to receive His gift. Picture your friend standing there holding a large box just for you! Now picture Jesus, who desires to be your best friend, offering you a free gift that will last a lifetime.

Jesus offers you salvation.

We Serve A BIG God! Can I get an AMEN?

God isn’t big because He takes up more space than us. God is big because He is more than us. And when we read His word we become blessed with knowledge of His vastness. A vastness so deep and so wide, many writers of the Bible–including prophets, king David, and Moses–have written about God yet I believe they really can’t explain it to us in human terms.

God is so much more than can be explained or understood. Creation, humankind, sin, mercy, and grace are just a few of His immeasurable traits. God is involved in every aspect of life, even in the lives of those who chose not to believe–because God is life!

And not only does God create life, God holds all things together.

Hebrews 1:3a The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word.

Do You Know God Considers You Worthy?

Too often, we believe ourselves to be worthless, useless or incompetent. Why? Because we erroneously listen to someone who harbors evil in their heart claiming that against us!

Don’t listen to them anymore!

I encourage you now—do not believe anything that an evil heart dares to profess about you! You are worthy because you were created by the Creator of the world, made perfect in every way.

The Son Never Turns Away From Us

The Son never turns away from us.

Most folks enjoy the beauty of a perfect sunset—but in reality, the celestial body of the sun never “sets”. Our planet Earth rotates (spins) on its axis at the same time that it orbits (revolves) around the sun. 

Laymen use terminology of the sun “setting” even though Galileo proved Earth rotates toward the east,  which is why the sun “rises” in the east and “sets” in the west.

The reason darkness comes upon Earth is because Earth turns away from the sun’s brilliant light—the sun never turns away from Earth. This means whichever continents that are within the sun’s rays will soon enter darkness as Earth turns away. And just like Earth always goes into darkness, the same can be said for why beings go into darkness:

We turn away from the Son—The Son never turns away from us.
