“Jesus” Your very name brings joy to my heart Giving my very existence purpose You bless me with everything that is good and wonderful with daily strength, and everlasting joys." T. Garafola
Isaiah 60:1 “Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord Rises upon you.”
If you don’t believe in the Lord, you may question how we can know for sure that God is real. There are far too many age-old arguments about the bible to go into but I will say this… we can feel it. Sounds crazy, right?
When you finally give your heart over to God you can feel it. The day I accepted Christ in my life I had this overwhelming peace and joy come over me. It is something hard to explain, but excitement does overcome you.
That excitement makes you hungry for more. It makes you hungry for knowledge. You become compelled to learn more, to understand more. And baptism, wow! When you come out of the water, most of the time, people just can’t stop smiling.
You feel strength in your spirit. It’s the security in knowing that Christ is behind you, He is in front of you, He is beside you, and He walks with you everyday. Remember, God promised we would never walk alone once we’ve chosen to follow him.
His blessings are everywhere around us, even in the little things. The glory of the Lord is everywhere, even in the worse times in life. No matter what the world will take from us, even when it’s our very lives, we will still have the truth. And many challenges will cross our paths, its inevitable. Those challenges will make us question our faith, they may even make us doubt the existence in God, but it is those times when Christ is the closest to us.
God is real, He loves us and He can heal our broken hearts if we fully surrender to Him. If you haven’t chosen yet, there’s no time like now. All you have to is ask Christ to come into your life. He’s waiting for you.
Matthew 11:28-30ESV Come to me, all 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.”
