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

Do You Hear Me Now?

There's a popular commercial for cell phone receptions, where a guy is walking around with his phone, asking, "Do you hear me now?" Kind of cute, but it has a greater meaning to us who are seeking God's guidance as we walk in this world.
The world beckons us with all its might...popularity, beauty, riches, the fast life, self-centered values. And if we don't or aren't able to measure up to these "values", we can feel dejected and rejected. So unfortunate, since this doesn't have to be if we listen to the right voice.
After Jesus ascended into heaven, the Holy Spirit was sent and to this day, indwells in people who have given their hearts to Jesus. His purpose is to communicate what God is wanting us to hear, and to help us to live the way God intended us to live. His way leads to countless blessings.
To hear God's voice in you, you have to really seek Him. Get in His Word, and spend time in prayer. There's a wonderful Bible study from Priscilla Shirer called Discerning the Voice of God, and she offers wonderful words of wisdom to enable a believer to really hear God!
Here is a prayer that I love and I want to share it with you:
Lord, heighten my spiritual senses to
see that which is not visible
hear that which is not audible
sense that which is not tangible
believe that which is unbelievable
Teach me to sort through
the noises of this world to
hear and discern Your powerful,
wonderful, pure, precious voice.
Speak, my Lord, I am listening!
