Staying obedient certainly does simplify things. Thank you Father, that you care for us with such intensity that you ask us to go to you about EVERY SINGLE THING. We were created to depend totally on you, to do nothing apart from you. Help us to come to that realization so that our lives may reflect you, free from strife and full of peace. Yes it is possible, it's His promise!
I was asked what made me find religion. I went too long but the short of it is, Jesus pulled me out of abuse & suicide. He restored me, my mind & my family. God is real, & as undeserving as I was He cared enough to get personally involved with me. I’m not chasing an apparition, some "idea" or religious system but a real God in the person of Jesus Christ that performs miracles in our everyday lives. Check out John 3:16

Do things look not so good for you? I imagine things didn't look too good to the disciples when Jesus was hanging on that cross but Gods most profound miracle was actually in the works. In those devastating moments our eternity was being secured and our power & authority over evil was being regained. God is Awesome when things don't look so good!
As we study Gods word, new revelation is learned. Everyday there is something new God wants to show us, share with us, and teach us. I am always in awe to see the magnitude of change and healing that takes place when you simply spend time in His word and in His presence. I see it and am still amazed at the simplicity of it all. Jesus is the Answer to a hurting and dieing world. No doubts here!
I was going through a journal I kept the first year i devoted my life to Jesus. This one has proven more true each day. "40 years of my life were defined by what ONE man did TO me~Now my next 40 years are being defined by what One Man did FOR me!"
I created a new blog to practice my story writing at http://www.itsonlyastory.blogspot.com/. Your critique is encouraged, good or bad but please be specific.
