Starting Over.

I can look at my life in hindsight and say, ” I started over so many times through all the mistakes, wrong choices”. My mom always told me I was a woman who loved too much (it is a book I read once). I am and will always be that woman. In my life, I lived trying to fulfill my heart’s desires. There was no filling it with this world. Through my breakups and messes somehow the Lord had me going on. Oh yes, many times even young I thought about what if I wasn’t here would anyone notice. I was being broken over and over and did not repent of my sins. Ultimately and amazingly His Grace through faith saved me.

I still love my family now, but in a different way. I love them to become the Lord’s, to be saved. For all husbands, all daughters, sons, grandchildren, mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, etc to be saved. And we know not all will be saved, sadly. I may never be back in the physical life with them but, they cannot stop me loving them. I hope, pray and believe.

“Who than can be saved?” “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:25-26

We can’t start over in this world in the flesh. We do get a new heart, in believing by faith through the Grace of God that Jesus (God with Us, Emmanuel) died for our sins so that we could be forgiven. He rose on the third day and ascended into heaven from the Mt. of Olives. He will come again in Glory, returning to the same Mt. of Olives. All will know that He is Lord of Lords and King of Kings, God Almighty.

For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world–our faith. Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God? 1 John 4-5

This is He who came by water and blood–Jesus Christ; not only by water, but water and blood. And it is the Spirit who bears witness, because the Spirit is truth. For there are three that bear witness in heaven: The Father, The Word, and the Holy Spirit and these three are one. And there are three that bear witness on earth: the Spirit, the water, and the blood; and these three agree as one. 1 John 6-8. There is more in His Word if you want to finish reading it in 1 John.

So you can go your (own way to destruction) or His Way. I am not saying that we won’t suffer more but, we have him to help us through. Because he will never give us more than we can handle when we trust Him only. I will never have to start over again and I am trusting in him.

Merry Christmas!

We raised our voices in glorious praise to our Lord Jesus Christ, King of Kings and Lord of Lords. The children sang about Jesus. The choir sang to praise and glorify and worship Him. Pastor’s message was as always the truth, encouraging any that do not know the Lord Jesus as their personal Savior to pray in their hearts for his salvation of their souls. I am reminded that when he called me I was a brokenhearted sinner. I knew in this world there was nothing left for me. Whatever is disheartening your soul is a burden he can take from you and lighten your heart. I know that is true. I have lived a life of total depravity and yet through it all his love was always there. For all the nations and people his love is there.

Matthew 11:25-30

At that time Jesus answered and said, “I thank you Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and prudent and have revealed them to babes. Even so, Father for it seemed good in Your sight, All things have been delivered to Me by My Father, and no one knows the Son except the Father. Nor does anyone know the Father except the Son, and the one to whom the Son wills to reveal him. Come to me all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

His desire is for no one to perish.

2 Peter 3:9

The Lord is not slack concerning his promise to us, as some count slackness, but is long-suffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.

You must turn to him for your salvation.

The Father has given him his own special people. All that the Father has given him will come. Titus 2:11-15

All true Christians pray for all sinners to come to the Lord Jesus. That is always our prayer for all. Amen! In celebration of our Savior’s birth.

For what can we share with each other?

We can share the Word with others. Just a few words of the Lord’s Word could lead them to someone else and God reaps their soul or not. We can’t know who will hear or not. We by His Holy Spirit are guided in what to do and say. We are to spread the Word to all nations and people. I know whatever I do is His Purpose for me.

We can love unconditionally as he loves us. Forgive others as he forgave us. If we don’t forgive others he will not forgive us.

We can serve others. (They do wonder why are we doing that). Sometimes it is so obvious that we are not wanted around. So if my Lord’s inner light is shining I still know he is working through me. I do have hard moments with persecution but, I am now with his help withstanding it better. My Pastor said that I have no excuse to not preach the Word. No excuse, mental illness or not.

I am so saddened by all these children being murdered past and present taken by someone not mentally stable or just plain evil. Not just in schools but, all around  the world. I pray for all who lost children, and loved ones, families torn apart. Find your way to what is true and perfect, God and lay your burdens at his feet. The president said we are not going to let this happen again. It continues because this world is evil. We cannot control these people. If they are going to kill they find a way.

Just remember after the church is raptured, total evil will rein in this earth. People will see so many evils. Some will die of shock at seeing it. Yes he warned us in advance what will come. I thank him every day that he has mercy on whom he will have mercy. I am in his kingdom eternally only by his Grace through faith. Don’t just hope you are. You can know for sure. It is nothing we do that gets us there. It is because Jesus died for all sinners that repent and take up his cross and obey him. We are disobedient children from the start because of Adam and Eve’s fall. No not one of us sought God until Jesus drew us to him. He came to set us free and that truth does. He was born, did not sin, was persecuted, wounded for our iniquities, suffered a horrible death to gain his sheep, his flock. If you don’t have His Holy Spirit within you, what is in you? The evil in this world that will pass away when he comes again in Glory. Oh, but you will try to hide. You will make excuses, to no avail. Now is the time to hear. You cannot believe there is not a Creator, a One and only Almighty God, sovereign over all. That’s what the ruler of this world (satan) wants you to believe. You can choose not to believe in God. So then what are you believing in then. Souls live on in one place (heaven), or another, (hell), believe or not. You will be responsible for your choice either way. Someday soon when you are going your usual way, not watching and waiting, he will come like a thief in the night, unexpected. True Christians are ready all the time, are you?  When he left his apostles he told them, ” I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. And the where I go you know, and the way you know.”  John 14:1-3
