Follow God’s Road Map!

I often get asked questions such as why many think gay marriage is wrong? Or why we are required to cherish all life? Or why we should defend Israel? For me, the answer is in my faith in Our Father, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. For I believe that real faith means that we will spend our lives submitting our will-to God’s Will. And we know what God’s Will is, for God left us directions in the Holy Bible. We will never be able to do God’s Will perfectly, that’s why Our Father sent His Son Jesus Christ. But it is important we try, and that we keep the goals clear by reading the Bible every day. For faith is not based on how we feel on any given day, but on who we choose to follow every single day 🙂

Thank You Jesus!

“If you choose gratitude, will your world be different? Oh, the hissing we hear. Don’t you want more? More horsepower. More gigabytes. More legroom. More testosterone. The white whale of want swims in our waters. But God has given Ahab a harpoon: gratitude.”-Max Lucado calendar

Thank You Jesus!


Thank you Jesus!

Thought you might enjoy this :). 

A friend of mine, Robyn put up a Thank You Jesus sign going to the bridge a while ago.  Her neighbor across the street put one up too which means that everyone (think thousands) who drives over the bridge to sees it :).  There is power in the name of Jesus! What an inspiration 🙂

There are also Thank You Jesus signs in many other places.  The Thank You Jesus sign movement  was started by  https://www.thankyoujesussigns.com/about-the-movement/.  And can be purchased on this website for $8 🙂

As Max Lucado says, “More than a hundred times, either by imperative or example, the Bible commands us to be thankful.  If quantity implies gravity, God takes thanksgiving seriously.” Thank Him Today 😊

You Are Forgiven & Free

There is truly nothing we can do that Jesus can not forgive. Just ask Him. As for God, He doesn’t even see our wrongs, because Jesus already paid the price for them.  And as for the Holy Spirit, He is here to be our Comforter and Friend, there is nothing He will not forgive either.

So if there is a wrong-doing of some type or something holding you back from our Lord, don’t let it.  Jesus loves us just as we are.  We don’t have to wait until we are “good enough” or until we “figure it all out”.  Just call on His Name-Jesus.  And He will come, because He loves you.  He’s got you.  Let Him.  And if you have to start over every single day, then do so.  For each day is new.  And it’s yours.

Jesus is worthy of your Trust.  I promise.

You Are Forgiven and Free Forever!

How to get to Heaven?

Just ask Jesus to take you there.

Our Father loves you.  Jesus gave His life for you and rose again so you could spend forever in Heaven, and so those you love could too.  You don’t have to “figure it all out”.  You don’t have to reconcile your whole life.  Just ask Jesus to be your Savior and He will.  And He will take you to Heaven because He loves you so much.

As for faith.  I think way too many people confuse faith with how they feel on any given day.  But Faith is really about who we choose to follow every single day.   And it is that choice that makes all the difference 😊

Meet you at the Gate 🙂

Heaven

Heaven is such an amazing place, but difficult to describe 😊

But there is one thing I can promised you, Heaven is as Real as the earth on which we stand.  It’s not some cloud, or some misty place.  It’s the Garden of Eden.  There is life.  There is laughter, lots of it.  And there is pure joy, pure peace and pure love.   There are deep friendships that last forever.  There are rivers and hills.  There are flowers and fruit.  There are dogs!  There are things to do, adventures that will never tire you but only brings you happiness. You will never feel sick, or tired or lonely.  It is the Grand Adventure with all the fun that implies, but none of the fear, worry or hardship.

The closest I can come to describing it in this world’s terms is that it is like the joy of all of your firsts combined, with all of the joy but none of the fear.  The first time you rolled down a grassy hill, the first time you spun around in the falling snow, the first time you jumped in the pool.  The first time you rode a bike downhill with the wind in your face.  The first time someone you love smiled.  The first time you were hugged.  All of the joy, none of the fear.

How any one or any place can give perfect joy, perfect love and perfect peace at the same time is beyond me, but that is what Heaven is like. That’s what Jesus offers, forever!

I wish I had better words to describe Heaven for you.  City of Lights as been used.  And although it seems trite, it is true.  Filled with Rainbows, the “streets of gold” are created by God’s Light.  A golden sun light so beautiful we simply can’t imagine how beautiful it really is.  Rainbows, God’s Promises, fill the land.  Each more beautiful than the last.  Rivers with sun shining on them, so crystal clear that you can drink straight from the river.  Trees and meadows, mountains, flowers and fruit everywhere, just waiting for you.  Picnics and walks.  Running like the wind and never growing weary.   It’s simply amazing, just like God’s Grace.

Imagine a world where every wish is taken care of before you even wish for it.  A world where there is no pain, no hurt, no worry and no fatigue.  No medicine.  No rushing.  No struggle to just get up.  A body that works perfectly.

Only joy.  And peace.  Only beauty and love.  A  beauty so amazing that you could just spin around and around, and spin around some more, drinking it in forever.  And if you did only that, it would be enough!  But there is so much more!  Grand adventures, spending time with the people you love.   Meeting new friends.  Being fearless, not courageous in the face of fear as we are here on earth, but truly not having any fear.  Can you imagine?  This is Heaven.

And there is work in Heaven.   If you can call it that 😊.  For it is work that never tires you, never rushes you, and always contributes to something you really care about and enjoy.  Work that you want to do.  Work that you love.

And there are friendships in Heaven.  Real Ones.  The kind that fills you up until you are overflowing.  Friendships that never cause you pain or heartache.  Friendships that never end and give you only joy and strength.

Many people think that Heaven is just some mystical place, but is as real as the earth you are standing on right now. 

You will walk, you will run and you will see that people you love and those who love you!

You will never be cold or tired again.  You will fly like the wind, with the sun warming you all the way through.

You will spend your days with Jesus and the Holy Spirit, in the Presence of God.

So get ready for absolute joy!  Because that is what Heaven is 😊

Welcome Home.

The Miracles of God are all around :)

The funny thing is one has only to look out the window on the way to work to see God’s Miracles.  The sun, the trees, the mountain tops and sun rises,  the wind and the waves…

Last night we were driving home in the strangest storm.  It was all white!  I have never seen anything like it.  The rain was a driving force, heavier than I had ever seen.  But it was as if we were driving into a white tunnel because at the same exact moment, the sun shown so much!  It was so beautiful.

As was the Rainbow that followed it, a sign of God’s Promises kept!

So if you are wondering where God is-look out the window 🙂
