Jesus Loves Me!

Jesus Loves Me

I Know That Jesus Loves Me! Do You?

When I was a kid, I used to sit around and doodle all the time. You know what I mean, right? I would draw on my school notebooks or papers… I would doodle!

I wrote, “Jesus Loves Me!” on everything. I wrote it in cursive. I wrote it fancy. I wrote it sloppily. I used magic markers and wrote Jesus Loves Me in all the colors of the rainbow on poster board.

One thing I knew then and I still know now with full assurance is that Jesus Loves ME!! I don’t know how I know. I just know. Those three words have carried me through some of the darkest times of my life.

If I were the only person in all of God’s creation to EVER receive Jesus, God would still have sent His Son just for me! And… Jesus would have still died that excruciating death, just for me! Why?

Jesus Loves Me, that’s why!

Do you realize that your perception of God affects everything that you do in life? It’s true. If you think that God is out to get you or catch you doing something wrong so that he can dis-own you, you have believed the ultimate lie of the enemy. That’s what Satan did to Eve in the Garden. He convinced her to believe him instead of believing God.

God wants us all to know that he SOoooooo Loved the world that –

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16

That old song that so many children have sang throughout their lives warms the hearts of many people still today!

It says,

Jesus Loves Me, This I know, For the Bible tells me so. Little ones to Him belong, They are weak but He is strong.

Yes, Jesus loves me. Yes, Jesus Loves me. Yes, Jesus loves me for the Bible tells me so!

Sing this song. Doodle the words, “Jesus loves me” on everything so that you will see it and believe it in YOUR heart!

What about you? Do you have a testimony of how much Jesus loves Y-O-U? Leave me a comment below and tell me that Jesus loves you, too! Do you believe it?

God Bless You,

Michelle

God IS Love

If You Don’t Know God, You Don’t Know Love! God IS Love 🙂

Big heart with the words God Is Love1 John 4:7-8

7 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.

8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.

Did you know that your opinion of God affects  your whole life!?

It seems to be the recurring theme in everything we do, say or think. If you know that God loves you more than you can even imagine, it will change the way you approach everything.

Just think about it for a moment! If you had been the ONLY human being on planet Earth, God would have still sent Jesus to be crucified…. just for YOU! Can that really be true? YES!

God is love.

Plain and Simple.

If you haven’t met our Daddy God in Heaven through Jesus yet, you have no idea what the fullness of love is! Please hang out with me and let me influence you. I love Jesus because He first loved me and I talk about him all the time! You will come to know more about how great He is & our Father in Heaven will be glorified!

I want to hear your story! If you have read this article, please comment and let me know! My heart’s desire is to impact YOU for the Kingdom of God!

Blessings,

Michelle

Dealing with the issues of life

Dealing with the Issues of Life

Crying with head in hands over issues of life

One of the issues that I have dealt with my entire life is that I feel other people’s emotional pain. Not in a spooky kind of way or anything but I have a deep-rooted compassion for others. You might say it’s the type of compassion that can only come from Jesus.  However, this compassion has caused me true heartache, also. I am just an everyday person that is in tune with my Spirituality. Some people fine-tune their sexuality. Others have a sharp business-mind. Some can make money while they sleep. Me?…I get to hurt when you hurt!

When I was younger, I would completely put up walls so as to not feel at all. I mistakenly thought that if I shut off my feelings that I wouldn’t be hurt. I didn’t know how to deal with the depth of my feelings. I didn’t know that I wouldn’t ever be able to get that time back. I still go through stages where I shut myself off from people but I now open up to Jesus and grow stronger during these times. Over the years, I have learned how to trust God and let Him use the issues of life and turn them into blessings.

Today is an example of one of those days. (I sometimes think my husband must be superhuman to put up with me.) On his pushing and prompting, I took the puppy for a walk and talked to the Lord.

Is it a coincidence that we have a graveyard close by…. always reminding me to make the most of life and to enjoy the people around me?

Anyway, I was walking and talking and I stopped at two small tombstones side by side. I saw their daddy out there as they were putting up the tombstones yesterday. They were twins, a girl and a boy, who were delivered prematurely and the baby girl lived a week and her brother lived two weeks. Yes, I am crying now. Yes, I was crying then. I could feel the pain because I myself have also felt the pain of losing a child.  But as I stood there, I felt that sweet peace begin to blow through my spirit. Do you know the Peace that passes understanding that is impossible to describe with mere words?

I can tell you that I am as mature Spiritually as I can possibly be right now. Don’t be afraid to care deeply for others. Pray as if it were you going through the tragedy or troubles of life. Let God use you to care and show compassion on others. Jesus brought compassion and mercy and grace to the world. Step out and show people the love that they so desperately need. God has taught me to do this with my big heart and crazy compassionate self, sometimes very gently and sometimes very BOLDLY.

We all have issues that we deal with in this world. If you have lived long enough, you have heard of gang rapes, murders, children who died before they had a chance to live, neglect, spousal abuse, drug addictions, disease, deformities, and all kinds of tragedies. Sadly, the list goes on and on and on.

My husband of 20 years is an Ordained Minister and has been since before I met him. He has preached in churches of different denominations, officiated weddings and he has preached several funerals. At first, the funerals were the worst because I cry so much when I see people suffering the loss of the people they love. I always want to help them understand what death really is and how to cope after they leave the funeral service and the graveyard.

This is the part where I wanted to get to today. I am sure that you can relate to something I have said. I would love to help you deal with some of the issues of life… you know the “biggies”. I want to help you equip yourself for the struggles of life. After having done all that you can do, just keep standing.

Ephesians 6:13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

You need to know that Christianity is not about getting a case of the “do-betters” and repeating after some preacher one time in your life. It’s not just a warm and fuzzy and pretending that everything is ok… and all the while suffering in pain or torment and listening to the lies of the enemy.

You need to be “equipped” to handle the storms of life when they come! I am not speaking death on you but the storms will come. That’s a part of living….learn to deal with the issues of life and get stronger day by day and know that you are not alone!

Jesus is with you. There are people who really care about others and don’t have an agenda. I am one of them so I know it’s true.
