I cannot believe that some folks think this world came into existence with a big bang. I wonder sometimes why some think we are crazy for saying that there is a Creator, and that He is God.
Now, you can get wisdom from the One who said to ask Him. He will make your heart believe in Him. You know, we have a choice to believe whatever we want to believe. If you want to believe there is no God, go ahead, but don’t discuss anything else to me.
I have found out another thing in life: people have the nerve to get mad at you if you don’t do as they want. God said that people will lead you down the wrong pathway, but it won’t happen to me. I keep my eyes on the One that I know is the truth, and I’m free and it’s the Truth that did it.
No one knows my mind, and no one can tell me that I don’t know what I’m talking about. Just because I have not gone to college, don’t mean I don’t know about life. I was told growing up that I was a dummy and wouldn’t amount to anything. You know something, for a long time I believed it, and then God came into my life, and how wrong they were. That’s why God said if you want wisdom, ask Him, and sometimes people get mad at you because you know so much.
I have been messed over and stepped on and lied to, and I am stronger than ever. Jesus was treated worse than me, and He said that I would go through rough times. You can believe anything you want to, but as for me, I’m believing in the One that has the keys to heaven.
After you have seen so much in life that’s so wrong, you want more and more of God in your life. I have peace and understanding and I pay no attention to the negative and the nay-sayers in life. For someone who was always told that I wouldn’t amount to anything, I’m doing pretty good.
The Bible says that Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life, but have you read what will happen to you if you reject Him? I don’t have the spirit of fear in me, as the Bible says, but I fear the Lord. I’m not afraid of Him. I just fear what He is going to do with the ones that disbelieve. Without the Bible, the Word of God, I would be still lost, but being saved gives me peace and eternal life with God in heaven when I leave here.
The world is in a mess, it’s almost hard to believe some of the things that are happening. At my age, I don’t know when I’ll be leaving, so I make sure every day that I’m right with god. God said that the trouble with man is that he needs a new heart. God said man has a heart problem. Where is your heart leading you? do you need a heart transplant?
I hope I haven’t offended anyone by the way I write, but sometimes you have to really get to the point. So many people seem like they don’t know the truth. Let me say this, you don’t have to believe me, it’s in the Holy Bible. God said to get angry, but don’t sin. Just because I don’t want you to miss heaven doesn’t mean that I’m too harsh with what I say. Going out into eternity not knowing where you will forever is in the Bible, God explains it to the point.
I heard a preacher say in a church service one time, if you don’t know Jesus, you better fall on your face and ask Him to come into your heart. He said you might not make it through the day and that would be total hell. Wow, the alter was full of people, repenting of their sins. When you say things in a harsh-sounding way, that doesn’t mean that you are being mean. Death has no age on it, and the Bible says today is the day of salvation. Every four seconds someone dies, young and old. Are you ready, do you know the way? He is Jesus.
