I use to think I was all alone in this big confusing world I did not understand. My life filled with dark secrets, living lies under the control of sin. I was born with a broken heart. I thought I was the only one who felt like a misfit, some kind of outcast, a social freak, for the world around me seem to have it all together, after all I was born into poverty, at the age of 5 sexually molested by a female cousin, as a teenager addiction was my only friend, searching for a substance I could not find, demons haunting my darkened mind...Then I came to know Christ Jesus and His Spirit of truth entered me, I was born again. The revelation of this truth set me free. I was not alone, I was not the only one who felt the way I did, I saw that everyone in the world was just like me, lost in sin, our minds blinded by the devil through unbelief as we all sit in darkness and the shadow of death. When I understood the revelation of this truth; I could forgive all the wrong that was done to me, seek forgiveness of all the wrong I did to others, and forget the things that were behind me. I could lift up my eyes to Jesus. He and He only is the Author and Finisher of my faith. Not this world, not my parents, nor poverty, additction, or others around me. Jesus revealed Himself to me, and I found my story written within the pages of His story, and when I believed on Him, suddenly everything made sense. I found answers to the question that linger deep in the depths of my soul. Questions about life, suffering and death. I understood that I was created by Him, and for Him, and for His pleasure. His Spirit empowered my life, His Word transformed my thinking, and the meaning of life became more than just me existing, The meaning of life was and is about me being ALIVE! In this life many will live then die, and never be alive! Jesus said, “you must be Born Again” - We must awake and Christ will give us light! 1 Corinthians 15:22 ...For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. John 1:12-13...But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. Truth: You and I are born of blood, born of the flesh, and born of the will of man, (Born of the natural). Question: Are you born of the will of God? (Born of the Spirit) 1 Timothy 2:4…Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. God’s will is for you and I to be Saved (Born Again) and come to the knowledge of His truth…You and I are created by Him, and for Him, and for His pleasure…There is a mystery hidden from the beginning of the world, this mystery of God and mankind. A mystery that is now revealed, “Christ in us the Hope of Glory” Ephesians 3:9 And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ: Colossians 1:27 To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. “If you stop looking with your eyes, you will feel Him in your heart” - Julie Miller Close your eyes, open your heart and see the One who Sees you. Let Jesus come and give life to you, let Him empower you with His eternal Spirit, and fill your life with His truth that will set you FREE!!! Everyone of us are born with a broken heart...and if Jesus is near those of a broken heart, and He came to bind up the broken hearted and set the captives free, that is you and I my friend. Jesus is near us and we are not alone! Jesus stands at your door knocking it's time to let Him in and let Him heal your broken heart... Jesus came to seek and save the lost, that's you and I. Jesus came to heal the broken hearted, that's you and I. Jesus came to set the captives free, that's you and I. Jesus came to give life, for you and I. Hear the good news of the gospel today. Jesus loves me this I know for the Bible tells me so.. Little ones to Him belong they are weak but He is strong... Yes, Jesus Loves me! Yes, Jesus Loves me! Yes, Jesus Loves me! The Bible tells me so!!!
Question: To whom then will YOU liken God or what likeness will YOU compare to Him? To whom then will you liken Me, or to whom shall I be equal? Says the Holy One. Lift up YOUR eyes on high, [ lift up our eyes up over the hills, over this world, over our troubles, our sorrows, our addictions, our sickness, our whatever‘s] and SEE who has created these things, who brings out their host by number; He calls them ALL by name, by the greatness of His might and the strength of His power; NOT ONE IS MISSING…. You might feel like you are missing from the ways of the world, like everyone else seems to have it together and you feel like an outcast…you may feel like your family or friends, and those around you have forgotten you, but you are NEVER missing from the eyes of the LORD… Psalm 139:11 If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me. Hebrews 4:13 And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account. Psalm 34:15 The eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, and His ears are open unto their cry Psalm 11:4 The Lord is in his holy temple, the Lord's throne is in heaven: His eyes behold, His eyelids try, the children of men Proverbs 5:21 For the ways of man are before the eyes of the Lord, and He ponders all his goings Proverbs 15:3 The eyes of the Lord are in every place, beholding the evil and the good Psalm 139:12 Yea, the darkness hides not from thee; but the night shines as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to Thee. Psalm 121:4 Behold, He that keeps Israel shall neither slumber nor sleeps. The Everlasting God, Creator of the ends of the earth, He never faints nor is weary. He gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might He increases strength…King Jesus who sits above the circle of the earth never sleeps nor slumbers, and He sees you right where you are, and He loves you more than you could ever understand. Trust in Him, wait upon Him and He will renew your strength and you will run and not be weary, you will walk and not faint, For He is El Roi, The God who sees us, and He is Immanuel God with us!!! In the Words of Hagar the Egyptian slave, “I Have Now Seen The One Who Sees Me.” Psalm 33:13-15, 18-19 NRSV The LORD looks down from heaven; He sees all humankind. From where He sits enthroned He watches all the inhabitants of the earth...He who fashions the hearts of them all, and observes all their deeds...Truly the eye of the LORD is on those who fear Him, on those who hope in His steadfast love, to deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine. Thank you Lord Jesus, for You hear me, You see me, and You deliver me, GLORY!!!

When I was a sinner I did not need anyone to tell me I was sinning...everything within me screamed I was living wrong. What I desperately needed and did not know is that God loved me. While I was yet a sinner, Christ died for the ungodly, He died for me. If there was such a thing as "Sinner of the Month Award" I would of had my picture and name on a plaque...lol The summer of 1986 I was 21 years old working at “Mister Donuts” on East Empire. I worked third shift and for most of the night I worked alone, so I would light a candle in the back room, sit at a table with a little new testament Bible reading the book of Revelation, while smoking a joint. Looking for answers to all the questions that lingered within my mind. Early one morning just at the break of dawn a women comes in the shop and orders a chocolate donut and a coffee to go. As I rang in her order and handed her the change, she looked deep within my eyes and said, “God Loves You”…those three words would haunt me for the next few months as I continued to seek for truth. I knew the evil that was present within me, I knew what I was capable of doing and what I had already done. Yet, there was a God who loved me? I did not understand the word “Love” Could it be the way this woman said those words or the way I heard it? Either way, these three words; God. Loves. You; Pierced my heart and stirred my soul. I began to search with all my heart this unknown God who loved me. And When I searched for Him, He sought me and He found me. Why I sat in darkness, and the fear of death gripped my soul, Jesus gave light to me. Can three simple words "God Loves You” change the course of ones life? Absolutely! Live to be a witness of Christ through the power of His love that is poured into our hearts by His Holy Spirit! (Romans 5:5)…If you have never heard, or have not yet believed, I tell you the truth; God Loves You!!!

I have seen this post on facebook by many people, and although it sounds spiritual, and appeals to our emotions, it is not biblical truth. The phrase, ""I would rather walk with God in the dark than go alone in the light."...If you feel like you are walking in darkness, I pray you will be encouraged by these scriptures written within the pages of God's Word. Always remember Jesus will never leave you nor forsake you, He is with you unto the ends of the earth, and not only is He with you, He is for you! Isaiah 9:2 The people who walked in darkness Have seen a great light; Those who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death, Upon them a light has shined. Luke 1:79 To give light to those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace. 2 Corinthians 4:6 For it is the God who commanded light to shine our of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. John 8:12 Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.” 1 Peter 2:9 But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; John 12:35 Then Jesus said to them, “A little while longer the light is with you. Walk while you have the light, lest darkness overtake you; he who walks in darkness does not know where he is going. 1 John 1:5-7 This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin. Ephesians 5: 8-14 For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light(for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), finding out what is acceptable to the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret. But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light. Therefore He says: “Awake, you who sleep, Arise from the dead, And Christ will give you light.” Proverbs 4:18 But the path of the just is like the shining sun, That shines ever brighter unto the perfect day. Matthew 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven. The Resurrection of Christ calls you and I out of darkness...may the light of the Lord Jesus Christ shine in your hearts, they you may know that He walks with you in the light. For God is light and in Him there is no darkness at all...Let your light shine!!! When we walk in the light as He is in the Light we have fellowship with one another and we are never alone...
