Life is a struggle not a joy, nothing ever goes the way I want it to, why
      am i still here? what is my reason for living? what is the use of trying day after day?

      Dear friend's,
      Have these questions gone through your mind.? Yes, yes, yes!!  there is a reason for you being here, don't ever give up, God will never leave you and believe it or not, there will come a day of pure rejoicing . Search within your heart, are you a christian  and do you know where you will spend eternity? There are many good people who think they will go to heaven because of their good works but  no matter how good you are  nor how much you do for others, it is only through the Lord Jesus and a grace that is free ..thereby one can be called a true born again believer.

      Go Here To See How Much God Loves YOU!

      In this lesson i  am going to try and define a christian (Christ like)  and or try to with the Lords help. A christian is one who has forsaken his/her own life for that of Christ.

      Acts 11:26: "And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch." You will know them by the fruit they bear. A true christian will bear the attributes of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ.

      We have a commission to fulfill while here on this earth. Each one of us

      has a  role to play in building up and strengthening  the church body. As you
      know  it takes many parts to build a house and or building and that is the
      same way it is,  in  building the church. We're all a part of building  the body of 
      Christ. No one human  being can look at another and say. "I don't believe your really a christian." because each of us is responsible for our own hearts,
       minds and bodies but we can  know by the fruit of the spirit they bear. When I asked  the Lord to come into my heart and live his life through me, I couldn't wait to hop out of bed  each day and tell someone about him. My heart and soul was so full of joy that he took a sinner like me and made me joint heir with him. Do you feel like that and cannot wait to tell someone about the Love and mercy of God?

       "Fruit of the spirit"

      In Ecclesiastics 3:2 " A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant,
      and a time to pluck up that which is planted; A time for birth and a time
      for death. {There is a time for everything on this earth, I have heard people saying, I don't have time to do this, there is just not enough time in the day. Well my friend, are you sure your in the will of the Lord? God does not call us if there isn't time to do what he wants us to..}

      Are you a true born again believer, washed in the blood of the lamb? then
      you have a reason to be here, a reason to hope in the Lord.  God didn't say
      our life  would be all roses and no thorns but he did say in, Hebrews 13:5
       “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”  again, 
      1 Samuel 12:22 For the sake of his great name the LORD will not reject his
      people, because the LORD was pleased to make you his own. and once again,
      John 6:37 All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes
      to me I will never drive away.  (39) And this is the will of him who sent
      me, that I shall lose none of all that he has given me, but raise them up
      at the last day." Jude 1:24 To him who is able to keep you from falling and
      to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great
      joy – To our Lord and savior, glory, honor, power and majesty and praise
      forevermore!! If you are still here and belong to him, then he still has work for you to do.

      "Praise God from whom all blessings flow, used in many

      churches today  as a  Doxology   is a much longer song called "Awake
      my soul, and with the sun." Read all the words of the song below and think about the words, pray God will reveal to your spirit what these words mean to your own spirit and how they can help you ,live a more victorious life in Christ.

      Awake, my soul, and with the sun
      Thy daily stage of duty run;
      Shake off dull sloth, and joyful rise,
      To pay thy morning sacrifice.

      Thy precious time misspent, redeem,
      Each present day thy last esteem,
      Improve thy talent with due care;
      For the great day thyself prepare.

      By influence of the Light divine
      Let thy own light to others shine.
      Reflect all Heaven’s propitious ways
      In ardent love, and cheerful praise.

      In conversation be sincere;
      Keep conscience as the noontide clear;
      Think how all seeing God thy ways
      And all thy secret thoughts surveys.

      Wake, and lift up thyself, my heart,
      And with the angels bear thy part,
      Who all night long unwearied sing
      High praise to the eternal King.

      All praise to Thee, Who safe has kept
      And hast refreshed me while I slept
      Grant, Lord, when I from death shall wake
      I may of endless light partake.

      Heav’n is, dear Lord, where’er Thou art,
      O never then from me depart;
      For to my soul ’tis hell to be
      But for one moment void of Thee.

      Lord, I my vows to Thee renew;
      Disperse my sins as morning dew.
      Guard my first springs of thought and will,
      And with Thyself my spirit fill.

      Direct, control, suggest, this day,
      All I design, or do, or say,
      That all my powers, with all their might,
      In Thy sole glory may unite.

      Praise God, from Whom all blessings flow;
      Praise Him, all creatures here below;
      Praise Him above, ye heavenly host;
      Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

      Written by Ken in 1674 I believe.

       Do we just praise him when things are going our way and hang our heads  in
      times of troubles "Saying  woe is me, the Lord has hidden his face from me,
      i am being eaten up by my sufferings? No my friends, we praise God in all
      things even when we feel as if the world is crumpling all around us.
      Satan has so many awful ways to distract us from our warship of God, he brings sickness, financial burdens, problems with families and also uncertain feelings, depression and the feelings that no one cares where we live or die, there are even times, we're not sure of our daily walk with Christ. ((Stand in those times, like the tree planted by the waters, don't be moved.))
      God allows Satan free access to his children (Read the story of poor Job) but he will not allow him to take our life  nor will he put more on us then we can bear. " Corinthians 10:13

           There has no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not permit you to be tempted above that you are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that you may be able to bear it."

      We can rest assured that God is with us through all our sufferings and will bring joy and peace. Remember when you think your at the lowest level in your life and you cannot take another step, Jesus is just a prayer away. 

      The Lord gave me this poem a few weeks ago.

      "My child, many may leave you because your not what they want and think you should be, but listen to my voice and behold me. I come not with empty hands to  receive what i might, I come with love and give you peace in the midst of life  storm's, I come with joy when there is none to be found, when your head is sunk low  from sickness and pain, it is my hand that holds and lifts up your aching brow. When people say I will do this and or that for you and fail to come through, my  promises i keep, see they are all held out to you. I ask nothing but honor from you and a heart so full of love  for my son, it shines throughout your space and into a  timeless journey, a journey all must take.

      I hold out my hands not with riches that soon fade but treasure not seen by the eyes of man. Close your eyes and look into your soul, wrap your arms around you 
      and know that it is I that holds."

      What a wonderful Lord we serve, he is so gentle and kind and loves all the creation of God the Father, our Father, yours and mine through the shed blood  of Jesus Christ.

        I wrote a while back. Wednesday, June 30, 2004 6:17 PM

      The Lamb.

       He bought our soul from the pits of hell, hung on
      the cross from heaven to the ground, 
      laying his life before all man, bloody hands from nails driven
      His love spread far and wide, his truth ring out,
      Gods only son, redeemed your soul when he died
      that day.

      They killed not thinking twice of evil that day,

      but his only thought was " Forgive them Father,
      they know not what they do."

      The Lamb was slain for me and you. So take heed

      my brothers and sisters, while the door of heaven
      still stands open, look not at the world and what it

      When we stand before the throne Dressed in clothes

       of pure white.

       When we see him as he is, loving him truly  with 

      unsinning heart's 

      Only then can we fully know,how much we owe 
      To a gentle lamb who bought our  souls.

      Again, if you have truly been adopted into God's family and the Holy Spirit is living inside of you, there should be some evidence of that in your life.  I know that sometimes it looks like everyone around us is more blessed then we ourselves and or  more spiritual  but  God doesn't love one person more then the next. Gods love is the same for all his children. Troubles, family matters, finance, sickness, he is right there to help each one who cries out to him. So dear friends, clean out the rose bushes and get rid of the thorns by prayer thanksgiving  and praise to A God that is able to meet all your needs and more.

      Go Here To See How Much God Loves YOU!

      Dear Lord Jesus, Please help us to put all  our  trust in You for  things to come.  Lord Jesus guard our hearts and minds  from the fiery darts of Satan,  Lord help us to know that whatever we do or  whatever we say or  whatever we have or don't have, and whatever may come our way , only comes to us through  your power and might.  May we rise each  day praising you  precious Lord with a new joy  in our hearts, knowing that this day and each new sunrise  belongs to you . Lord we give thanks unto you  for grace that is free for the asking. We Praise your Holy Name, honor and glory belong to you, Amen.
