This is what my Father said to me when I was a young girl and that was at least 50 years ago.  He knew that from studying the Bible.  He himself a Sunday school teacher for young married couples knew one day Christians would be persecuted one day like they are now, all the way back in the 1960’s.

Tells us of the signs of the times and the end of age.  Please take a moment to read this powerful word direct from Jesus himself.

Our prayers this Christmas should include those being persecuted in the Middle East and all over the world  as Christians try to reach millions who still do not know that unless they come to the Father through His son Jesus Christ they will not enter the Kingdom of Heaven. (Romans 6:23). “For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” NKJV

This year, make Christmas less about giving gifts under the tree, and more about loving one another and salvation.

Bullies

I have a dear friend who is a single parent.  At age 8 her son is bullied at school.  He is a most tender heart, who is born again and baptized.   This week he really took  it to heart and ended up in the ER.

As a christian we know the thing to do is trust in God for the answers.  As a mother this makes us fighting mad!  When I went to see this little one in the hospital I assured him God was going to use this in a good way, maybe he will be a christian counselor one day, or a missionary in a third world country.  He smiled and shook his head as if they were both good ideas.

That very day he was offered a very low tuition fee at a  Christian school.  I was not there when I gave his mother the news, but she was overjoyed and I pictured him jumping for joy.  (that I cannot verify)  There he will hopefully flourish among the other children and for Jesus.

Let us pray for the parents who have children that bully and the children themselves that they will one day know the Lord as their personal Savior and know love not hate.

Thank you for your prayers.

In Christ’s love, heartfulandhopeful

A Child Baptised

baptism grapesOn September 8th, 2014 my Grandaughter Olivia at the age of 8 was baptised. This is done by immersion of a believer in water, in the name of Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost. Baptism represents the crucifixion, burial and resurrection in Christ.  (Matthew 28:19-20)

I think those of us who are grandparents can agree that the birth of a grandchild is a very precious and emotional experience to us.  Because Olivia had accepted Jesus as her Savior, this day of my granddaughter’ s baptism was far more meaningful as in that we would now spend eternity together.  Because we have both professed our faith and confessed our sins, receiving into our hearts as our Savior Jesus Christ who died on the cross and rose again to join His Father in heaven we will be together in this place He has prepared for us.

(John 14:1-3) In the Bible says-“Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me.  In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so I would have told you.  I go to prepare a place for you.  And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that were I am, there you may be also.”

If you would like to join your family and friends  in heaven, remember this: “For GOD so loved the world that He gave His only Begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)  You cannot enter Heaven but by Him.  Jesus says in (John 14:6)  “I am the way, the truth, and the life.”

Do not let yourself and your loved ones get left behind when He returns in the clouds for those of us who have given ourselves unto Him, by confessing all of our sins, asking Jesus to come into our hearts as our Savior with baptism and following in His footsteps to spread His plan of salvation.

Yours in Christ, heartfulandhelpful

God’s Love For Me.

  I accepted the Lord as my Savior and was baptized at the age of eight.  I knew that Jesus wanted me to spread the Gospel to as many people that I could find to listen.  Through the age of thirteen I was on fire for the Lord.  The at the age of fourteen my Father died a very sudden and violent death.  He was robbed, shot and killed in his jewelry store.  He was just thirty seven years old.  My Father was my mentor, friend and parent.  I was devastated.

 

 I feel like I lost almost a year of my life in memories.   I was angry with God. This was june and I was starting in the ninth grade in September.  We had stopped going to church, when we did go it was filled with unbearable memories for myself my Mother and Sister.  This was our first mistake.  We did not take our cares to the Lord.  Little by little Satan took over.

 

 Without the guidance of my Father, and my Mother herself mourning I relied on friends to show me how life works.  Mistake number two. My younger Sister needed me and I’m sure I was there, but not there for her.  Not like I should have been.  I started dating and that was my third mistake.  I was too young and didn’t bother with if the boys were christians.  My life as a teen was a disaster.

 

 Adulthood wasn’t much better, I drifted from church to church.  Then no church at all. Fourth mistake.  I prayed for a better life, yet no answer.  I was living in sin, why would God help me?  Then my dear Mother came to live with me, she herself a strong christian again had been praying for all of her family to get back to God.  To become disciples for Christ.  When started going back to church.  Becoming close to the Lord again.  Oh how great it felt to confess all of my sins again and receiving God’s love.  My husband was also back in church. The struggle we went through our first 19 years of marriage was unbelieveable.

 

 I am sharing this with you because I want you to know that God can mend your life as well.  He promises you eternal life through His son Jesus.  (John 3:16)  “For God so loved the world that he gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.”  Now every morning I asked God to forgive my sins and pray that He will send someone to me  everyday so that I might show them the plan of salvation.

 

 Confess all of your sins, accept Jesus Christ as your Savior.  Live a life that is pleasing to Him, by prayer, reading your Bible, going to a Bible based church, become baptized and telling others that they too can become a child of God.

 

 In God’s love,    heartfulandhopeful

Journey with God

In this life there are many trials, tribulations, and hardships. Without God at the helm, we find ourselves at a loss for hope and peace that fills us and gives us something to live for. This blog is a place for me to share the hope God gives me despite the circumstances I face and to extend that hope and love to others. May it be an inspiration and blessing to your heart!
