Turning Point

Hey there. It’s me.. Terra. The stranger on the other side of this message that you are reading. I know we don’t know one another but I just wanted to share some words of truth and encouragement with you because I care about you and your soul.

Why you may ask? Because Jesus loves you so so very much and you need to hear it, feel it and believe it to come to that turning point in your life of surrender to Him. You need Him, I need Him, the whole world needs Him. We can have a life of eternity in heaven and all that comes with being loved, forgiven of all our sins no matter what we’ve done and become sons and daughters. We can have the true meaning of life while we are still here if we turn our lives around for good. Giving up our “old man” to live as a new person in Christ Jesus is worth it. It won’t always be easy but it’s well worth the change.

For too long we’ve grown accustomed to doing what we want to do, say what we want to say and live how we want to live for the most part. But at the end of the day it’s all meaningless if we don’t have Jesus in our lives. Will will that turning point come? There will never be a right time, right day or hour because the next second of breath isn’t promised to any of us.

I encourage you to reflect on your life and ask yourself how’s it all going for you. Now don’t be deceived by the lies of the devil or even your own thinking. How easily we are fooled. No matter how rich you may be, how well life is going for you because you “got this” down pact and life is looking pretty good from your angle you got it all!!! Right?? (Buzzer sound) I’m sorry but you are wrong. Now let’s flip it because you’ll still be wrong if you think you don’t need Him because you’ve struggled all your life, nothing good seems to come your way, you can’t catch a break and it’s as if you are living in hell mentally and physically. You may even believe that the most Holy God is not worth your time. You don’t believe in Him. You are your own god. Then again you may be giving your life to any false god and religion that you’ve known for years so that has to be right. It just had to be. Wrong again and again and again.

It is only Christ Jesus the Son of God who can turn your life around. He became flesh and died on the cross for all of our sins so that we could have eternal life and be reconciled back to the Father through His ultimate sacrifice. He didn’t have to come down from heaven where it was comfortable and life was all good but He did. No other god has done that. God the Father saw past our sins and saw our greatest need. We needed a Savior, we needed to be totally cleansed of our sins. In order for a relationship to be restored and our lives to be transformed and we are renewed in our thinking which in turn changes when we see with our spiritual eyes and love one another while showing mercy and grace because we’ve all made mistakes we must surrender a life of old for a life of new.

That turning point comes in and through Jesus Christ. Give it some thought. And if you believe anything I say in the least bit, I encourage you to pray and ask Jesus to come into your life, make Himself known to you even in your doubt because you want to believe. Step out in faith and try Him for yourself. We’ve all taken chances in various areas of our lives from what we believe on television, to what others tell us, what we’ve seen and heard to even following the crowd. We take chances on relationships without really knowing if someone is lying to us, foods and medications without truly knowing if they will harm us. Right? We believe in what we cannot see or know right away. I say all of this to give examples because it’s true. But at what point will change take place?

Turning Point. Choose life in Christ. I’ve tried Him for myself. You don’t have to believe me. You can try Him for yourself and I pray that you do because care about you and your life. Here on earth and for eternity.

God bless you, God keep you and may you come and accept His gift of Love.

“But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up. Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.”

‭‭II Peter‬ ‭3:10-13‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Love is Calling You

Thank you Jesus for being obedient to the Father. You paid the ultimate price for my sin and that of the world in order that we may be reconciled back to Him, set free from the bondage of sin and to one day be with You in heaven for eternity. wp-image-2118270112

Without repentance and receiving salvation we are hell-bound. If you have been feeling the tug in your heart to do away with living life in sin, (which doesn’t have to be so great as killing someone. We are born of sin nature and that alone separates us from God.) then I encourage you today to ask Jesus Christ to come into your life, clean you up on the inside and to live a life unto Him.

Repent of your sins, believe that He died and rose from the grave 3 days later and now sits at the right hand of the Father. He wants to welcome you into the Kingdom. All the angels in heaven rejoice even over 1 person getting saved. Just imagine your name being cheered in the heavens! We as the Body of Christ welcome you and rejoice over you when you decide to give your life to Jesus.

Many are here to support you here on the blog, in your community, workplace and even the church. I pray you take comfort in knowing that you are loved by many especially by the Lord Jesus Christ.

God woke you up with purpose. A great one you have yet to experience in Him. Allow His love to bring you into a relationship with Him by surrendering to His precious One and only Son, Jesus, who died for you. He calls you friend whom He loves dearly.

 

Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends. 

John 15:13 NKJV

 

Choose today what life you want to live. Satan is good at masking sin and feeding us lies. We have been given the Holy Spirit to lead and guide us day to day. Come to Jesus while you still have life in you. God bless you…

Without Jesus my life is meaningless. No treasures in this world can outweigh the priceless gift of salvation and a eternity of joy in heaven with Him. Day to day He will be never to leave nor forsake you. I’ve tried Him for myself. Try Jesus for yourself and see that He can and will make you whole.

Invitation to the thirsty: Take me to the King

Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty. (John 6:35 NIV)

There is a constant struggle of the mind and flesh to live right. Pressure arises from east to west, north to the south. There’s no escaping when we sit in the hope and trust of man. We will constantly be thirsty wanting more and more of this worlds offerings. We will never be content in relationships, content within ourselves, content with our thoughts, content with where we are financially. We are chasing what we do not have…..

The enemy will lie and distract you from going to the Lord to declare what you are in need of, to repent to Him of the transgressions you have committed; the sins that keep you separated from communing and having a meaningful relationship with the Holy One.

So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. (Luke 11:9, 10 NKJV)

Even those in Christ endure hardships and can fall away or even merely distance themselves when they fall short of God’s mercy and grace. The enemy stays busy. He will not relent. Do not allow lies to deceive you into thinking that you cannot turn back to the Lord after doing wrong, to feel that you will never be good enough, that you will not be on the same level as other believers and followers of the Lord. These are lies.

Jesus Himself was tempted by the evil one but He sinned not. ( Hebrews 2:18, 4:15, Matthew 4:1-11)

Stand guard and be prayerful at all times.

Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. (Hebrews 4:16 NIV)

Someone will always have better, greater or less than. Whatever it may be that we long for, we are chasing after it. It’s a busyness that leads to nowhere. We are too busy trying to keep up with “The Joneses”, too busy trying to outdo others, too busy scheming and hustling to make way for our light to shine.

We become so caught up in ourselves while failing to realize that we will never be content or happy right where we are.

Now I’m not saying that we cannot have great material wealth and gain but there should be balance. Are we sharing with those who have less or are we harboring the blessings God gave us? Nothing we have came by chance or luck. God blessed you and I. No amount of worldly wisdom and gain will bring much fortune if Jesus Christ is not the center of your life.

This fortune I speak of is spiritual. Worldly fortune will pass and be remembered no more. Spiritual wealth is for eternity.

Emotional turmoil will have you closing off your thoughts. Like a bottle of shaken up soda, it eventually will burst. You try to twist the cap off but with no avail, not much takes place. Frustration and anger, depression and hopelessness begin to face you. This is because you are working in your own strength.

Someone greater, Someone stronger and wiser is needed. His name is King Jesus.

Take all that you are and all that you are not to the throne. Only Jesus can fix you. Only He is able to heal you, repair you, mend your brokenness, provide stability in your life in how you think and act.

It’s time to stop chasing the wind. It’s time to stop chasing after meaningless things of this world. They are not conducive. Jesus is.

If you know you thirst for righteousness and are looking for peace, Jesus is the answer. He is the Great Physician. Allow Him to come into your life and heal you beginning right now.

Do not put off this very moment. Stop fighting and debating within yourself. Stop reasoning within your mind. Stop reasoning with society. Satan wants nothing more than to destroy you. He will continue to rob you of peace if you allow him to.

If He (Jesus) has come into my life and saved me from myself many times over, I know and I believe with all of my heart that He can do it for you too!

Salvation awaits you today. Will you accept the Invitation?
