Hi precious people that God has created. I hope you all are doing well. Even if you are not doing well right now because of a circumstance in this life, we can still be of good cheer. I know first hand how hard that can be and actually I am learning from God how what He guides me to write about is also to help me. The Lord works in mysterious ways to answer our prayers and I can honestly tell you that He has done that this very morning with me. I am a very emotional person and God is teaching me and training me in my heart with His Word to give Him everything of myself to Him. So, this morning I did just that and I prayed for God to show me and help me to deal with the bad circumstances of this life and be focused on Him instead. His answered prayer came to my heart and mind this morning with Biblical scripture regarding a cheerful heart. The Lord has also guided me to share this with all people, for those who are in Christ Jesus and sealed for the day of redemption; this is encouragment for you my brothers and sisters to stay strong in the Lord because of the words of Jesus in Luke 6:20-23 “Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of God. Blessed are you who hunger now, for you will be satisfied. Blessed are you who weep now, for you will laugh. Blessed are you when men hate you, when they exclude you and insult you and reject your name as evil, because of the Son of Man. “Rejoice in that day and leap for joy, because great is your reward in heaven. For that is how their fathers treated the prophets.
Those of you who don’t know Jesus or have a relationship with him, please know that God does love you so much and wants to give you the only true joy in the midst of problems. Also you will have a relationship with God the Father through Jesus who is God’s Son. As humans we have ways that are against God naturally and since God never forces anyone to choose the right way, we have all went away from God. Jesus is God the Son who came to earth, born of the virgin Mary and he was fully human and fully God. He is the Living Word of God and taught people about God. He never sinned but he was tempted just as we are. He died on the cross for our sins and God did raise him from the dead on the 3rd day and that is why we celebrate Easter. There were many witnesses to his resurrection and he stayed with his followers for 40 days. Also there were witnesses to Jesus ascending to heaven and now he is with his Father. Once he ascended to heaven, he sent the Holy Spirit to live in the hearts of the believers. The Holy Spirit is God, but we are not a god, we only have the Holy Spirit of God who reminds us of God’s Word and transforms our hearts into the likeness of Jesus. If you believe that Jesus is the Son of God, died on the cross for your sins, and rose again on the 3rd day, then you will be saved and be risen again one day when Jesus returns to gather those who are saved. Do you want to know God and have a relationship with him? If yes, then admit to God you need a Savior and believe that Jesus is your Lord and Savior who came to earth, died on the cross for your sins, and rose again on the 3rd day. Pray for Jesus to come into your heart and life and he will give you the Holy Spirit of God and you will instantly be born again in the Kingdom of God. Then confess to others that Jesus is your Lord and Savior. John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
I am so glad I read this and I feel encouraged.Love from Mom.
Thanks, mom. I am glad that God comforted you in His Word.
There’s always someone worse off than we are and we always have much to be thankful for. I just happened to be writing on this topic before I came to your site. Sometimes putting on our best face even if it’s not the way we feel inside can help lift up another so that we can draw more inspiration from seeing them get uplifted. Positiveness and negativity are each contagious in their own way–which one do I want to pass on to another?
You’re doing good work here. Keep it going.
