“Even if you are able to have all the health, wealth, fame and pleasure in this life that you could ever want, there would still be no future for you without Jesus. This life is not the end, and thanks to the cross we can have eternal life through Jesus Christ.”
This is an excerpt from an article written by Michael Snyder from prophecynewswatch.Com. “The name of the article is Upside Down: Pope Francis Discourages Evangelism, Kanye West Preaching Gospel”. I want to say I have not done any research for myself about what the Pope did or did not say, but this excerpt really hit home with me. Because for me it is the truth, we live in perilous times and I haven’t seen one wealthy, famous person who was truly happy. We see it everyday in the news about famous people losing money, going to jail, going to rehab for drug addiction, etc. and you hear people that don’t have money saying “If I had money I wouldn’t do that”. Yes you would because true happiness only comes from God. I use to be that person who thought “if only”. It wasn’t until I committed my life to God that I found true happiness. I’m not perfect, I still don’t have money, my health isn’t were I want it to be due to an automobile accident , my husband, who is the sole provider, has to have surgery for a torn rotator cuff and will be off work for at least six weeks, and I take care of my 86 year old father n law who is in a wheelchair and yet I am thankful because through all of this I know God will never leave us. We want for nothing we have food, clothing, and a roof over our head, and our bills still get paid. No we aren’t monetarily rich, but God said in Matthew 6:19 “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal.” Do I get angry, sad, and fustrated of course I do, I’m not perfect but I am forgiven and God’s Grace is renewed daily. I found true peace, the peace that surpasses all understanding, when I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. You can have that peace too, all you have to do is seek God, and ask His Son Jesus Christ into your heart and believe that you are saved by grace through faith. when you have done this tell someone and find a Bible believing, grace believing, Spirit Filled church that can guide you and teach you about our Lord and Savior. I’m not saying your life will get easier but you will have the peace that surpasses all understanding to help you through it.
Peace and Blessing
