The Proof

I was sitting around earlier, I started to think about how many people want proof that God exists, we are always searching for something to justify that God is there. The proof is already in our hearts and minds, we already know he exists. It's upto us to decide for ourselves whether he is real or not. Some people like to see physical proof, but that isn't how things work.

We can have all the physical proof we want, but if we do not believe then what good is it. Jesus showed us many miracles and wonders, but still they did not believe he was the son of God. So, even if we see all that is great in this world and do not believe, how much better are we?

In my life I have realized that there are far too many things that can't be explained, can't be proven and I still believe because I know that Jesus is real. I may not have heard his voice, or seen his face, but I do believe in him, because if not for him I wouldn't be here today.

Deep down in our hearts we already know the truth and that he is Lord and God alone, it is foolish and stupid to ask ourselves if he really exists because without a doubt he does. Search your hearts and you will know it to be true.

The proof is already there!

How Long?

If a bowling ball falls on your foot, how long will you be able to put up with the pain, you may try to be strong and walk on it, you even take medication to get rid of that pain, but deep down in your heart and mind you know it still hurts and you can't escape it no matter how hard you try. Time goes by, you find yourself living on ibuprofen, nothing seems to help. You know yourself that you will have to go into the doctor. You really don't want to do that, but you have no other choice, the pain is just getting too great and you may have broken it.

Upon going to the doctor you find yourself in a waiting room after having an X-Ray. You can't tell for sure what is wrong, you're having a hard time trying to decide whether it's broken or not. The doctor comes in and tells you that it's fractured and you're going to have to have a cast. You know that's the last thing you want, but you know that the pain will slowly go away with medication and having a cast will help.

It's the same way with putting your trust in Jesus. How long can you live without him? Probably not very long as anything and everything in your life is going to go down hill. The things you thought that made you happy only made you sad. You can deny him, but doing so will only bring more pain and sorrow. Until you take the first step and accept him into your life, you will never find true happiness.

As they say, wide is the road to destruction, but narrow is the road to salvation. Which road are you going to be taking? Just like a broken foot, the pain is always going to be there no matter how hard you try to hide it, the only way you'll get rid of it is to seek help. It's the same way with Jesus, your life will never be complete, you'll never be happy and you'll be doomed to repeat the same things over and over.

Jesus is always around, always knocking at your door, don't shut him out. Let him into your life, let him work miracles in your life, once you do that you will receive many blessings. You will see things in a whole new perspective, life will be more colorful than you ever imagined.

Jesus LOVES you and he's not going to give up on you, open the door to a better life and let him lead you home to the promised land.

In every corner of the world, in every home there is sadness. It's overwhelming, uncontrollable and seems to always find its way in. It takes us by surprise, catches us off guard and it's one of the single most dangerous things to keep us down. There, however is a remedy for our sadness, there is a way out, a road to recovery and to happiness. It is only one name, that name is Jesus.

He will and always will wipe away our tears, lift us up and bring a smile to our face. He will give us the strength to go on, to see new horizons and to be a stronger person. So often we are overwhelmed with sadness that we forget who Jesus really is. He died on the cross, suffered for our sins and bears the nail scars in his hands to show us everlasting life.

The is only one solution to our sadness and it is accepting Jesus into our lives, opening up our hearts and letting him fill that void that keeps us down. There are many reasons for what causes our sadness, but there is only one reason for the escape of it, it's simple. It's Jesus and he will never forsake us.

Just like the darkness overtakes the entire world for a moment, light will triumph over darkness and so will Jesus over sadness. If we put our trust and our faith in Jesus , he will bring us happiness and joy. He will open new doors that we never knew existed. Jesus is like the air that we breathe, if we don't have him, we will suffocate and die. Maybe not right away, but our lives will waste away until there is no more.

Stop hiding in the shadows of your sadness, open your heart to Jesus and let the healing begin.

Rays of Sunshine

On a cold winters day, surrounded by so much devastation and so much tragedy was a young brother and sister who were shivering out in the cold. They had no home anymore, the waters rushed up and the winds took it away. The feelings in their hearts were less then great, sadness took over them as tears dropped from their eyes.

Hunched over and feeling worthless and down, they now realised that their lives were not going to be the same. Their hearts ached as their knees became weak as they dropped down and prayed to the Lord. They asked why do things like this happen to good people like us, they looked up into the cloudy sky and their faces with many tears pleaded for help, they were alone and feeling left out.

Then out of no where the clouds started to depart, rays of sunshine started to appear all over such a devastaed area reaching down and warming them up. In such a sad time, in a world of so much sin and sorrow they saw it as a sign that God does care. They stood up and looked up into the sky, their eyes no longer with tears, their hearts feeling the warmth of the Lord and then to their surprise something else happened.

A few people with blankets, food and water appeared. They were a blessing in disquise, it was if God had listened to their hearts and sent them help. Yes, their lives would not be the same, but their hearts were touched and it was the beginning of a good thing. They were no longer cold, they were no longer alone. They felt the love in their hearts so strong, that they extended their arms towards Heaven and thanked the Lord for his love. They were no longer in suffering, but felt his presence so strongly.

I dedicate this story to all of those who have lost someone or their homes in the tragedy from hurricane sandy. In a world with so much evil, there is also so much good. We can and we will triumph over anything we ask the Lord to help us with.

The Backbone of Life

Everyday, i have gone through problem after problem. I can't seem to bring myself up for long before falling down again. It seems that life is wearing on me quickly, i am weak and i am sore. I can't seem to find happiness or joy. Anything and everything is like a heavy chain holding me down. So one day i was driving down the road, i started to think why is everything happening to me. Why am i having such troubles in life. Why me?

I was listening to christian radio as always and then the idea popped into my head, i could feel the Lord saying that i am the backbone that holds you up. I knew in my heart that because i was not reading the bible, not accepting Jesus as my personal savior and not even paying attention to him that everything could and was holding me down. I forgot who Jesus was, i was so wrapped up in everything that could make me happy in my life, but was i think about making Jesus happy. No, i wasn't.

I realised then that we can't do anything without Jesus. He is the backbone of our lives, he is the one that holds us up and gives us the strength to keep going. We are like slugs without the Lord in our lives, and of course we are going to have troubles when we try to go about it our own way.

It is not easy living in a sinful world, trying to be a christian with everything around, but i do know that the more we reject the devil, the more we find fellowship with other christians the easier it will get. Life isn't going to be easy, but it's what we make of it. We have the tools at hand, we can either pick up that bible and start to read it, gaining wisdom and strength in the Lord, or we can just put it off and then find out how miserable our lives are. Just like someone said, energy begets energy.

It's the same with the Lord, trusting in him and doing things his way will make us stronger and build our faith and our relationship in Christ.

The Path

The path that we walk everyday is going to be filled with trouble, each and everyone of us is going to be tempted to take the easy way out, the quickest way to our destination, but is it always the case in our favor? No, it always leads us to more disappointment and pain, more suffering and anguish.

In life we walk down that road which can wind up and around a hill seeming to never end, we are always tempted to take the easy road out, to get to where we want to go right away, but it never seems to work that way does it? It will always cause us more trouble and heartache.

There is only one path that we need to take and it's the path towards Jesus. You see my friends, when you try to walk alone and don't listen to the Lord you're lives are going to be confusing and you're going to go through more pain then you ever thought was possible. Things that you didn't expect to happen will and you're going to blame yourselves for everything. There is only one solution, one answer that will help you through this dark time.

It's simply Jesus, there is no other answer to your question. If you do not have Jesus in your life, then you don't have happiness and you will never be on that right path. Even i until recently have realised my whole problem. I have been trying to walk alone in my life and i have felt more pain and suffering as a result.

The things that i tried to accomplish have only failed and backfired in my face. I have become so depressed and let everything get to me, but how could i forget that the only person who mattered in my life was missing. It was Jesus, sure i thought i could do it all, but i was so wrong. Apart from Jesus, WE CAN DO NOTHING! Do not ever forget that, becuase without Jesus there is no path, there is just disappointment.

Don't be so proud to accept Jesus, after all he loves you more than you know and will forgive you no matter how bad your sin is. Find that right path today and your journey home will be much easier.

Sowing the Seeds

A family plants a garden, they get a bunch of seeds, make a big area in the back lawn to plant these seeds. They have it all planned out and everything seems to be going well, after a while the plants start to grow, they flourish and a new garden starts to emerge. Then the sunlight starts to diminish, the water isn't as abundant as it was. They give up and quit pulling the weeds, the garden becomes a disaster, it dies up as the weeds take over and block out the sun and take the nutrients that are already in the ground. This once great garden is now nothing more than a field of weeds.

In life it is the same way, we are the seeds that are growing, and we need the light of the Lord to survive, we need water and we need nutrients which help us, but the one thing that really cuts us off are the weeds of every shape and form that seems to grow around us in our lives. They take over, they take control of us and we become the weak ones giving into their every temptation.

We fail to do what we wanted to and we wonder why we have it so bad. Jesus is the weed picker in our lives, if we just accept him and believe in his resurrection then we are saved, but it's when we choose not to accept him and just try to live our lives according to our own will. That's when we get choked by the weeds of all kinds, making it hard to breathe as we give up on everything and anything.

We can grow and mature into anything we desire with the Lord, all we have to do is believe and accept him into our lives. I once was a seed who was headed in the wrong direction, ready to die but he lifted me up, saw how much i meant to him as he means so much to all of you.

His overwhelming love for you no matter what you do is what is amazing, he will never turn his back on you. No matter how many times you have turned away, he is still there with open arms waiting for you. Just know he will NEVER turn you away. That's why he died on that cross, rose again to forgive our sins. No one else has ever done that for you and me :)

The Heart

A family waits outside in a waiting room in a hospital, they're father has just had a terrible heart attack. They are so worried and they wait minute by minute as it seems to go so slow. They can't be anymore worried and upset, their feelings are undescribeable. They feel as if they will never see him again. Their worries are turned to sadness and they start to give up that it's the end. The give up on hope drifting off into total sadness, but then something strikes them and it strikes them hard.

One of them says "Wait!, how can we give up so easily" , the others start to take notice and they start to realise that there is hope, there is a chance and giving up is the last thing they want to do. They know that the odds are impossible, but still to give up and to let the devil take control is not what we want. So one of the family members says "We should pray, our father who always has loved us would want us to" and so they start to pray together asking the Lord to come into their lives, show their father a second chance to live and to enjoy the rest of his life.

Hours seem to pass, their hopes may be up and they are still sad becuase we can never get rid of all of the sadness we feel, but we can at least hope and believe. Even if things turn out to be bad as the end result God still has a plan and there's a reason why it had to happen. We may not understand it because we can't understand. Our minds are not meant to understand how powerful he truly is.

The family cries so hard after the doctor comes out and with a sad face says to them that it is too late and he died. They sob uncontrollably and it's not something that the doctor wanted to deal with telling a family like that.

The family knows that he is in a better place, it may not be the thing they wanted but shortly after they have greaved from the passing of their father, one of their daughters will bring new life into this world. The joy returns to their life, but still it is not easy to miss their father, but it's just a part of life. The trials and tests of God will always be there. In this world there is sin, more than we know and it's hard, but we must pray and do the best we can to make each day better. Things may not work out the way we expected, but we will see that there is a reason and we have to just be patient and see his plan. It's hard, but have faith and believe that there's a reason for everything.

Thank You :)

Just as i enjoy writing inspirational stories whether they are based on real life or fictional, it is always nice to see comments of those i have touched. Jesus is a huge part of my life, i wouldn't be me without him. He is my inspiration, who gives me the will to go on. I am not without sin, in fact over these last two years it has been what i would call hell. I have struggled to keep a job, stay faithful and just be me. Each and everytime i find that my faith in Jesus endures and without a doubt we all are going to face  many trials, it's just a part of life.

All i can say, no matter how bad the sin, no matter what you have done there is one thing that is so true. Jesus loves you still and he's not going to turn his eyes away from you. He knows the effect sin has on our lives and he knows we're in a constant battle between good and evil. Everywhere you look there is temptations of every kind, from food to anything you can think of. We of many religions are of one faith, that faith in Jesus is what will keep us going. I will continue to write inspirational and uplifting stories and i hope that it brings you closer to Christ.

So again, Thank You all for your kind comments. This is why i write, to reach out to all the nations, to show others how much Jesus loves you and he will never stop loving you. So don't let the devil confuse you with doubt. :)

The Word is the Way!

A man walks into a donut shop only thinking of one thing, filling his stomach and satisfying his hunger. He then drives to a local Wal-Mart excited about the latest video game release. He has not even the slightest thought about Jesus on his mind, but instead of playing this certain game. He like so many others only wants to think of his needs and not the needs of others or Jesus for that matter. So he gets home and he eats those donuts, he plays that game and he spends the rest of the day watching tv.

He is so wrapped up in everything else that he doesn't take the time to spend with the Lord. His life could be better but it is less than perfect and he seems to run into more problems than ever before. He struggles to find a job, to make ends meet and to just be himself. He is attracted to the things of the world.

Each and everyday so many of us forget about reading the word of the Lord. We just stumble through life not trying at all and not giving our time to Jesus. Even i have started to neglect the things that matter to me, and that is reading the word. I have promised God before that i would sit down and i would start to read the Bible. I went back on my word and never did so.

We as christians needs to be stronger in our walk with the Lord. We need to read that word each and everyday, otherwise we are going to be tempted and we will give in no matter how hard we try. Think of it as someone standing behind a tree, he's waiting to make his next move and attack you. He's ready and you have no protection, he knows there is a good chance he's going to steal your wallet and get off with nothing.

Then picture yourself with a bunch of people, there's no way this man is going to try anything or he himself will get beat up. We can walk through life and not read the word, but temptation will only be much stronger for us. Not only will reading the word better understand the Lord, but it will also make us feel great.

So unlike other times, i promise to the Lord that today i will pick up that Bible and start reading, even if it's the Psalms or Job, i will read because i want to learn more about Jesus. I want to have that deeper connection with Jesus and by reading the word i will.

The devil doesn't want us to to know more about Jesus, so that's why we always think oh yeah i can read it tomorrow, or i'll do it later. If you don't start today, you never will. You will be more vunerable to his attacks if you do not immerse yourself in the word everyday.

Highway to Heaven

I was at my nephews confirmation recently and the bishop had a very interesting story that he told. It really reminded me of a story that i wrote which was true in real life. My experience was that i was lost in the woods, i didn't know where i was. I was starting to get nervous and afraid becuase i knew nothing about survival. I asked God to lead me and to my surprise i saw a giant white cross that led me back to the Christian Church Camp.

This is in my words the story that he said.

Four guy were taking a hike in the woods, they started to become unfamiliar with the territory. They realised too late they were lost. Each of them started to ask the other, "Do you have a Compass?" and the other said no. Eventually they all realized they forgot to bring the most important thing with them which would lead them home.

They were starting to become frightened as neither of them were much of a suvivalist. They were trying to figure out what was the best way back. Everything looked the same, they were not high enough to see the hills so they couldn't tell.

Each one claimed that a certain way was North. They argued with each other and claimed their way was the true way. They all decided to go a seperate path and find the way home. In reality only one would find their way home, what will happen to the rest.

If you really think about it so many are going to take that road that leads to darkness and do you want to miss that oportunity. Jesus is the Compass in life, if you don't have Jesus then you will not find your way to the Highway to Heaven.

You can go without Jesus, but you will lose your way and then it will be a lonely and depressing life you live, never will you find happiness like you will with Jesus. Each day will be a struggle and you will continue to fall until you accept Christ.

It was a wake up call for me that night as i knew that even i was not living my life the way i should. I was hiding things from my family, i was not living a Godly life and once again i was falling. I had to seriouly think about it, do i want to turn away and not receive the blessings that the Lord has to offer, or do i want to accept Christ and let God work in my life.

Even if you don't know Jesus today, it's never too late. Accept Jesus today and talk to him everyday, don't wait until it's too late. I almost did!
