Dear Hearts, Gentle People
Are there any out there who get to feeling their life has no purpose? A feeling of loss and emptiness, even in the midst of friends and family? I have been there myself and I know what a lonesome feeling that is. We all have times in which we need a helping hand, like light to guide us out of dark places. I discovered such a place in my search for the Lord Jesus Christ. I want to share that it's a light that will guide us with great love. In the heart of our God there is a plan and a life purpose for every man. He is so good and so kind to all, and especially to those who seek to know him. He gentles us and comforts us and guides us into truth that redeems our lives from destruction. Life in him, living under his favor, is so wonderful. All men are invited to seek him, to know him and experience the reality of life renewals and eternal blessings. If we call out to him with a sincere heart he will show us the way.
The people of God are taught to respect and seek the good of all they encounter in life. It means that we are to respect and honor, as much as it is possible with us, whoever we're doing life with. And in the brotherhood of believers we're especially blessed with more abundant life. The wonders of the love of God's family. Now I'm not talking about pew warmers who just sit in a church and do not know God. You should know for sure that there is "religion" and then there are true Jesus people. He uses messengers of grace to reach out to us. He is Creator of all good and perfect things and his goodness lives in varying measures in his children of faith
God gave his son so that we could trade our sorrows and griefs for his joy and deliverance. No man, including the godly, loves us like he does or is able to care for us like he does. His fatherly heart is always jealous to do good and lay the strong foundation for our lives that will keep us secure and safe in all of the storms of life that all men walk through. We learn how to become overcomers of all that would come to harm us and to labor with the Father to care for his people. As he leads, we follow. It's a life that is peaceful, powerful and eternally secure. We are privileged to live it out before men. Not to lord it over men, but all for the good of men and for the glory of God.
Real Christianity is about everyday life lived in the vine of Jesus, the life giver. It's for the common man yet the common man has been recreated into a vessel of light to guide others to Jesus. The deep strength of his joy keeps us and the power of his love changes us as we submit to his Lordship. By being faithful in little things as the Lord directs we progress through his processes into new faiths and new glories. Training in righteousness and loving and tender purgings as needed keep spiritual fruit healthy and prospering. Truth and mercy kiss one another and peace reigns.
