Show me the one, show me the way, help me to know just how to share the love You gave.

Look around you! There is probably someone who could use some love! All too often, we find ourselves surrounded by people who are going through some difficult times. Perhaps you are! Whether it's unemployment, family problems, health problems, depression, loneliness, or whatever, all of us would like some relief from what we are going through. We need to see that there is a light at the end of the tunnel!

And there is! The Light of Lights, Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, is willing and more than able to lift us from our darkness, into His pure and safe haven of light. He promises His love and presence to heal and deliver, to strengthen and help, all those who call on Him.

Like the beam from the mighty lighthouse, that directs ships safely back to harbor, His Light is there to show us the way to Him, for Jesus is truly the Way, the Truth and the Life.

It is my prayer that this site encourages you to reflect His light to those around you who need to know Him. Let Him use you to share His love. And as you embark on this remarkable journey, please share your experiences so that all of us can grow together in our quest to reach all the world, lest anyone should perish.

May God richly bless you!

"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." John 3:16

Where Did YOU Come From?

Lately when I've logged on to the internet, I've noticed a story that is in the headlines. It's about the new GOD Particle that has been found, in other words, the Higgs Boson. The article is alittle too technical for my understanding, but to sum it up, I believe it is saying that after years and years of long, very expensive scientific research, they have finally located the answer for how all of creation, including we, were made. Duh!!! As if the Bible isn't a reliable source?
This article goes on to say " 'The God Particle: If The Universe Is The Answer, What Is The Question?', where Leon Lederman explains humankind's 'final understanding of the structure of matter' ...'Why the God particle...there is a connection, of sorts to another book, a much older one.' ".....Wait a minute....are they talking about the Bible?
Why is it, that repeatedly, people are searching for their origin? Over and over again, scientists attempt to unveil the 'truth of the matter', while ignoring what the Bible has said all along. I can't help but notice that down deep inside, they do believe God is the Creator of all things. Because God put that inside of them. But they are trying to deny that and want more proof. The Enemy has done a good job with placing doubt in people, hasn't he?
Here is what the Bible says about our origin:

In the beginning God
created the heavens and the earth...
God created man in His own image,
in the image of God He created him,
male and female He created them...
God saw all that He had made, and it was very good.
                                                         -Genesis 1:1,27,31

If this is what the Bible has been telling us all along, that everything was made by God, with deliberation and purpose, and that nothing was made by accident, then why all the fuss to prove it? Is the Bible reliable?

All Scripture is inspired by God,
and is profitable for teaching, rebuking,
correcting and training in righteousness
                                        -2 Timothy 3:16

Lastly, there is a powerful verse in the Bible that sums this up, and is important for us to think about.

The wrath of God is being  
revealed from heaven against
all the godlessness and wickedness of men who
suppress the truth...
since what may be known about God
is plain to them,
because God has made it plain to them.
For since the creation of the world,
God's invisible qualities -
His eternal power and divine nature -
have been clearly seen,
being understood from what has been made,
so that men are without excuse.
                                                -Romans 1:18-20

When I read the beginning of this verse, I can't help but think about all the terrible things that have been affecting our country...the Colorado fires, the flooding in Florida because of the tropical storms, the droughts, and now the heat wave that is causing power outages and deaths. All acts of Mother Nature?  I doubt it. Never before have we seen such moral decay in our grand United States of America. But that is a whole other story!

The fact is: God created you and me in His image. He has placed deep inside of us the knowledge of who He is, and if we take the time to examine ourselves, we can find Him.

Faith is being sure of
what we hope for
and certain of what we do not see.
Without faith, it is
impossible to please God,
because anyone who comes to Him
must believe that He exists,
and that He rewards those who
earnestly seek Him.
                           - Hebrews 11:1,6

Just believe!!
