Well it seems as though things are not going vey well with me. The bank wants to take my house and my financial concerns keep piling up. Notice I said,"seems" in my first sentence. I have a very good reason for choosing that word.
You see, I KNOW that I am a true, adopted, child of the one, true, Living God! His word says this,"But as many as recieved Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name" (John 1:12). And I know that God, our great Father, ALWAYS takes very good care of His own children. Jesus Himself said,"Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on." (Mat. 6:25). And He went on to say,"But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therfore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about it's own things. Sufficient for the day is tit's own trouble." (Mat. 6:33-34). God dosen't even want us to worry about things in our lives, He is our Father and He is ALWAYS true to His word!
I could go on and on about this but I really don't have the time to do it. I have been just pouring over these lines a lot to set them up in my heart. I know what kind of danger I face in my life (like possably being homeless) but I am refusing to worry about it. I know that as long as I am a child of God (which will be forever) I really do NOT have to worry about ANYTHING. This world can do absolutely nothing to harm me, even if I become homeless. Why? Because I am a child of God. That's why!
And I have been gathering a LOT of strength and hope from all of you people here at the CBF. I feel so much like I belong here, like I have found the right place to be, at last. I do feel a little guilty because I have not been able to send my pledge money in. I am going on 2 months now of not sending it in. I feel really bad about this because I love the CBF so much, it has helped me so much in my life. I'm going to try to send in some money this week.
This is how I am keeping my faith in God alive, by reading His word and through prayer. I know that my faith in Him WILL overcome anything this world can throw at me. Check this out:
(Jesus said,) "These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but I have overcome the world." (John 16:33)
Need I say more?
Your's in Christ's Love,
