5 Reasons To Give Your Problems To God

Do you know at all times God is present everywhere? No matter your location or situation in life there is no barrier that can separate you from God. And because nothing is ever hidden from God, He knows everything there is to know about you.  He knows your highs and, through times of trouble such as world is experiencing right now, He also always knows our lows.

Yet through His daily process of planning, creating, and sustaining life, God also continues to devote time to loving each one of us individually. “How does He accomplish this?” you may ask. The answer is God is not only present everywhere knowing everything, but God also does everything at all times.

God is a multi-tasker who’s very good at fixing problems– if you’ll just let Him!

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!

God’s Response To Prayer Has Many Facets

No two diamonds can ever be the same because of their color, cut, imperfections, and complex characteristics. Each is unique in size, weight, and sparkle.  And just like diamonds, no two prayers are ever the same. Each person praying is unique in their being, and each instance of prayer includes different circumstances and individuals with unlimited problems and requests.

As Christian adults, we experience how prayer works from our time spent studying God’s Word, and, from years actually participating in a daily prayer pattern. Christian adults also know prayer may sometimes happen fast, but often God chooses to use prayer as a way to grow our faith.

So how does God grow us when we come to Him with our requests? The answer has many facets.

  And Joseph’s obedience would forever change the direction of our world!

JESUS Is Calling YOU!

 

Jesus is calling you

Some people erroneously believe they must clean up their lives before coming to Jesus. They are sadly ashamed of their past: the dirty baggage they carry, the scars they created or endured, the hidden hurt laying on their hearts. They allow past sin to bind them.    

If you are one of those misinformed souls not familiar with the Good News, let me share with you the truth Jesus taught and lived by some 2000 years ago. I know 2000 years seems long in the human time frame, but have no worries –

Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. Continue reading

Thank-you, Jesus!

Thank you Jesus

When was the last time you thanked Jesus?

Was it last night, after your feet snuggled warmly under the covers? Did you thank Him for giving you another twenty-four hours to share His love?

Or did you thank Him this morning, before those same feet hit the floor? Did you acknowledge allowing your eyes to see the sun rise; enabling you to make right any wrongs you committed yesterday?  (FYI, as I’m writing, I thanked Jesus for my MS.)

Ephesians 5:20 always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Continue reading
