Hey I’m so glad you are here! If you have never visited my site before let me tell you a little bit about what you can expect to find.
You have found a safe place to land. A place to get encouragement, hope, support, find friends and other people who have stuff in their lives. None of us are perfect. None of our lives are perfect. I am a firm believer that every word of the Bible is true and when God said in Romans 8:28 that He “works all things together for good to those who love Him and are called according to His purpose” then that is EXACTLY what He does!
I want to make sure that if no one has ever told you this before then you can hear it from me:
YOU ARE LOVED!!
You are enough! God says in the Bible in Genesis that He made us in His image. He doesn’t make junk. Over and over the Bible is filled with stories of how God intervened in people’s lives in miraculous ways. Jesus met people who were outcast right where they were in life, in the middle of a big ol’ mess, and loved them! Anyone remember Zaccheus or the woman at the well?
I won’t promise that all your problems will go away once you start trusting God and following His will for your life. In fact you will have problems. Jesus tells us that in John 16:33:
“I have told you these things, so that in me you ay have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
I just want to put a great big fat bold exclamation mark at the end of that last sentence.
Do you have an unhappy marriage? Take heart! Are your kids driving you crazy and keeping you up at night worrying? Take heart! Are your finances in such a mess you don’t think you will ever see the light of day? Take heart! Are you depressed, beaten down by your circumstances, sad, angry, bitter, lonely? Take heart! Jesus has over come the world! He loves you and He will intervene in your circumstances.
Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you, he will NEVER leave you nor forsake you!
Deuteronomy 31:6 (Capitalization and exclamation mark mine)
Jesus loves you and he hears every single prayer, catches every single tear, knows your every thought and sees everything you do.
