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

Got Any Issues?

Everyone I know has issues. You have issues. I have issues. We all have issues! It comes with our life package. Some have more serious issues than others. Concerns over health, family, work, financial, and other things.
There was a woman who had an issue of blood for twelve years, and everything she tried didn't stop it. (Matthew 9:20-21) Then she found out that a man named Jesus was coming to town. She had heard of the miracles and healings He had done, so she decided to go and meet Him. Something inside her knew that He was the answer to her issue.
She found people gathered around him, and walk up behind him. Without saying a word, she reached out, and touched the tassel of his garment. Immediately, she was healed. Jesus turned, and said to her, "Take heart, my daughter, your faith has healed you." 
By placing her trust in Jesus, her issues were resolved!

At another time, Peter, being in a boat at night, saw Jesus standing on the water at a  distance. (Matthew 15:22-31) He asked Jesus if he could walk on the water to Him. Jesus said, "Come." Peter crawled out of the boat, and began walking on the water. He was staring at Jesus, as this experience was exhilerating! But then, his attention went from Jesus to the wind, and he began to be afraid. Looking down at the dark waves underneath him, he started to sink.
He cried out, "LORD, save me!" He reached up his arms, and Jesus pulled him up. "You of little faith, why did you doubt?"

Peter took back his issue of the ability to walk on the water, and started to sink!

Issues. Jesus knows all about our issues. And he tells us in Matthew 11:28 - "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." When we are dealing with our issues, we need to take them to Jesus, and believe that he is able to take care of them. When we take our spiritual eyes off of Him, then we are taking our issues back.
Believe that He can resolve your issues. Have faith that He will. He loves you so very much and wants to bless you. His way is better than our way, and when we surrender our will to His, we will have peace.
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him,
so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. - Romans 15:13
