`I am a Christian! I am set apart from non-believers. I am NOT better than, I just have different beliefs!
Psalm 118:8 It is better to trust the Lord than to trust people. ICV)
Life and some people I have met, have taught me it is better to trust in God, than any mortal being.
I do not abuse, nor use or appreciate profane language!
I do not kill, maim or torture, nor do I steal!
I do my best to not worship man-made idols, although in this technological world I do admit to being dependent on certain items!
I respect people, and attempt to live for truth, in truth and for truth!
I love those who choose to not like or love me in return. I acknowledge they are doing the best that they can, with what they know, or perhaps – they just do not find anything about me they are comfortable with.
I believe in the one true God! In Jesus Christ as His Son, who died and rose from death to prove His love for me and He lives eternally.
John 3:16 For God loved the world so much that He gave His only Son. God gave His Son so that whoever believes in Him may not be lost (caught up in worldly pursuits to alleviate their inner needs), but have eternal life. God did not send His Son to judge the world guilty, but to save the world through Him. (ICV)
Choosing God was life-changing for me. Years ago, I had desperate need of something but did not know what it was. I had a huge emptiness inside that nothing satisfied. My life was not good! I had trusted people who were unworthy of my trust, and I was led astray. God stepped in and put me on a better path. He saved me. He will do the same for you, but you need to let Him know that you want Him to!
Matthew 7:7a Continue to ask, and God will give to you. Continue to search, and you will find. (ICV)
Prayer: God – are you really there? I need help and I think you are the only one who can do it. I am struggling: alone and caught up in a lifestyle that I have no control over. Please help me! Show me what the right next step should be. Come in to my life and save me and show me a better way to live. In Jesus Name, Amen.
