All We Need

Updated on September 13, 2015

With ME

I chose my children
I chose my children
Because it is my hope
Because it is my hope
And prayer for them
And prayer for them
That they always put God first in their lives
That they always put God first in their lives
But always love
But always love
each other.
each other.
Update - Praise God that they still love each other. More importantly they both love Jesus and are living for HIM. Praise God!!!

God is all we need.

I am learning so much in my new life as a Christian. (Update - I have been a Christian now for longer, over 6 years and God is doing amazing things in my life and my children's lives...) I used to think I was fine because I lived my life and I did love and fear God, I never knew Him, I never reached for Him and called to Him to hear His reply to me.

I looked for answers, direction, hope, faith, in places and in people, the answers were there for me but not where I was searching. I was so afraid of being "alone."

It took a message on the back of my daughter's "Youth Planet." On the back of the schedule were words of wisdom for our young people, our teenagers, which I wonder if I had heard when I was a teen if my life had turned out differently. Alas, my life is where it should be but the messages are finally coming through loud and clear.

Here it said something about relationships and love and the message that spoke to me the most said something like, "Do not seek in another to fill a hole in your heart only God can fill." This spoke volumes to me, because all my life it is exactly what I had done and now I know. I can be relieved that my daughter has already heard this message at fourteen years old, and I pray that she will always remember it as she grows and the devil tries to pull at her heart and tear her away from God.

I want this for my son also but since he is now only seven - (Update, now he is twelve! This hub was first posted in 2010, my son and I were able to go on the adventure of our first mission trip to Puerto Rico this year! 2015, Praise GOD! I do still just marvel at his innocence and how easily he talks about how he loves God, for him I continue to pray that never changes.)

Any relationships should be in addition to your love for God, but God always comes first as He will never let you go. Joshua 1:9 "Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest." KJV

Some days it is difficult, maybe it is because I feel weak or maybe unworthy of such an amazing love, I try to remember and pray for reminders like the one that I received today. God sent me a message through a friend in Christ to keep writing, it is my passion, though never greater than my love for God! This is a desire that God put in my heart so now I will write, tell my stories of how God is touching my life and hopefully somebody else will read my words and realize or even remember that in this life filled with doubt and uncertainty God is all we need. He can move mountains and He will move them for us because He loves us.

      This is a great saying: No God, know unhappiness. Know God, no unhappiness. You're a gifted writer because you write from your heart, and that's something the whole world needs more than ever now. I'm so glad that you have decided not to deprive us of you, and your thoughts and your feelings. Welcome.
