alive in the shadows

Are you alive in Christ but still living in a shadow of the past?

Maybe Jesus has been your Savior for years but you’re still holding onto secret hurts, secret circumstances, secret regrets. Are you protecting a person or situation that should be brought into the light? Has the enemy convinced you that everybody will look at you differently if they knew your secret? Are you overwhelmed thinking about what will happen if you were to tell someone?

I can relate to you and it was timely that our Pastor began a mini-series on “Restoration” yesterday. I have experienced incredible worship and the power of Jesus in my life in spite of living in a shadow.

Why settle? Why not keep running forward and be as sold out as possible and experience an even deeper level of worship and relationship with Christ by fully letting go…putting audible words to that last chain so it can be broken…being willing to to not be afraid and trust God for the outcome?

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and DO NOT BE AFRAID.” (John 14:27- with emphasis added)

signs all around

I see the news…the world events…the signs all around us and I say, “Come, Lord Jesus!” The evil that is being perpetrated around the globe has no boundaries, defies description & crushes my heart. This is not the future I want for our family or anyone else and yet we will walk through whatever circumstances come upon us, knowing that God goes with us & Jesus has gone before us. We can have faith and peace in all situations because “We are not of those that shrink back and are destroyed, but are those that Believe and are saved” (Hebrews 10:39).

Friends: Jesus is our only hope and Heaven is our home. There is no other way! “I am The Way, The Truth, and The Life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6) If you don’t know Jesus as your savior, ask me, ask another Believer, ask your Pastor, but ASK!
