Life is like a game of baseball, we do very well for a period of time. Our batting average rises, but then we get struck out. Everytime we come to the plate it seems that life throws us a curveball. Sometimes we get hit and other times we strike out. It's not a fun series of events, but we have to get up and dust ourselves off and try try again.

We all want to be the one who gets the home run, the only way we can truly be successful is to keep practicing. The more we follow Jesus, the more we read his word and begin to live according to his will, the better we will become.

Before long, we will be hitting home runs. We will be doing better than we can ever imagine. That is the truly amazing part about God, no matter how bad we think we have it, he surprizes us and shows us that everything is going to be ok.

We need Jesus in our lives. No matter how good we think we are, the moment we go without Jesus is the beginning of the end. We'll get struck out over and over again, we have to live by his word daily, otherwise we will become weak in the spirit and will be vulnerable to every attack the devil can send our way.

We can do nothing apart from Jesus, he is like the blood in our bodies. Without it, we will surely die.

So if you want to be a pro, get those home runs in life you need Jesus. It's as simple as that.

Two Roads

Two people are walking down the road, they are both going to go in two different directions. One will choose the easy path, the path that leads to destruction, sadness, suffering that they can't seem to get out of. The other will choose to go the hard way, it is not an easy way. He pushes on and finds that the struggle is worth the effort.

In life we have two choices, we can either decide to follow Jesus and let him be a part of our lives, or we can choose to walk the easy road which will lead us to damnation. So many are going to go the easy way, just because they don't want to put the time and effort into doing the right thing. It is easy yes, but there are no rewards and life will only get worse from there on.

For those who follow Jesus and who take the hard way they will be blessed with his many rewards. Their lives will be changed in ways they can't even begin to imagine. For me, lately it has been the wrong way, I have started to ignore Jesus. I have started to fall again, not even caring about the consequences that will come from it.

I can only try again, getting back up, dusting myself off and giving it all that I have got to stay true to Jesus. I know that life will be better, I know that I will not have to worry about hardships anymore. It is true that it's been too easy just to do all the wrong things, but believe me it's not worth it. It comes with a great price and I don't want to suffer anymore.

For one of those people, they will end up never seeing their loved ones again, the time will come when Jesus returns and those who are dead in christ will be raised. The ones who are believers shall be lifted up into the clouds, the ones who did wrong shall find damnation. Do you really want that to be you? Do you really want to never see your family again. Most people don't think about it, it will happen and I don't want anyone to find that road.

"For the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation." -JESUS in John 5:28-29

So choose the right path and live eternally with Jesus
