God's love

      God's love for us is greater than we can ever imagine. He gave up his son to die on a cross for all our sins. Even His love showed through Jesus.

      In Luke 23:34 Jesus said, " Father forgive them, for they know not what they do. "

      Later in Luke one of the criminals hanging beside him asks, " Lord remember me when you come into your kingdom. " Even nearing death Jesus said to him, " Assuredly, I say to you, today you will be with me in Paradise. "

      God loved the world so much He made a new covenant with man through Jesus where if we confess with our mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in our heart that God raised Him from the dead, we will be saved. It's that easy for God to love everyone, and now it's our turn to show his love through us.

     Does God have control of your life, or do you try to drive life in the direction you want it to go? Some of us like to say He is in control, but we still like having our hands on the wheel. To have God in control, we have to stay in the back seat. Here is a great way to picture Him in control of your life: Think of a two-person bike. The one in front steers and both of you pedal. With God in control, He steers where you need to go and you help by doing the work.

     When God has control of our lives, there is no need to worry about todays problems when we are looking forward to life ever lasting. He knows what we can do and will never give us too much to handle. W must have faith and He will provide for us. He is always watching over us with a kind and loving heart. All we need to do is say," ok Lord you have full control," and live life the way he would want us to.

    The Bible talks about Jesus preforming miracles. In Matt. 11:5 it tells us about how he made the blind see and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up. Also in Matt. 14: 25-29, it tells us of Jesus walking on the sea, and telling Peter to come to him. Peter has the faith to step out of the boat and walk to Jesus, walking on the sea below him.

    The Bible tells us of all the miracles Jesus preformed in his time, but the ones he has done in our time we can only find out by others sharing. This is going to be my own testimony in the miracles Jesus has done for me. This is going to shock and hurt some of my followers.

    I'm going to start with saying I hung out with bad people from a young age. All of my teenage life I smoked weed and drank a lot. The first time God tried to get my attention, I was 18. Headed to school one morning, sitting at a stop sign, I was hit in the driver's side door of my Honda Civic by someone in a Dodge Dakota. I went through hell getting better.

    He tried again when I was 23 with a wreck at 150 mph in a dragster. To my surprise I survived both encounters, but I began to mess up again: for about three or four months I was really heavy into cocaine.

    It was one Sunday in church that God touched me. Nothing else mattered at that moment, I was standing there and all I could do was cry. I felt that God was with me, letting me know it was ok and nothing I had done in the past would be held against me. It's a feeling like none other, knowing you're in the presents of God.

    I finally opened my eyes to everything around me and started doing better. I have a great wife and wonderful son that mean everything to me. I'm around better people now and have a great job. I try to do my best and we go to church every Sunday. All I have to say is when things go wrong in your life keep your head up and watch God's bigger picture unfold. I never thought one day Christ would be using me to spread His word to others.
