Peace on Earth

There's a lot of things I could say,but there's only one truth. Is your life right with the LORD? Do you have peace of mind? When you lay your head on your pillow at night do you feel like if you were to die and go to the next phase, would you be in the right place? I decided to quote directly from the Bible so I wouldn't get anything wrong. So, here we go to save your soul or at least I am going to do my best to encourage you to do so. I am not a preacher or prophetess. I'm a Christian trying to help others that feel that their lives are out of control and need a helping hand to find the Lord and I am here to do just that, for that is what He said we are here to do is to seek and to save. I'll start today by saying something that hit me from Romans...
Romans12: God has shown you his mercy,so I am asking you to offer up your bodies to him while your are still alive.Your bodies are a holy sacrifice that is pleasing to God.Don't live any longer the way this world lives.Let your way of thinking be completely changed. Then you will be able to test what God wants for you.And you will agree that what he wants is right.His plan is good and pleasing and perfect.God's grace has been given to me.So here is what I say to every one of you.Don't think of yourself more highly than you should.Be reasonable when you think about yourself.Keep in mind the amount of faith God has given you.
Now,to me that states that we must give all to the Lord and to surrender all.We are to be like clay that He can mold into what He wants us to be. We are not to try to do things on our taking on too much on our shoulders.Believe me,I have had to give my worries over to The Lord.There is no way I would have survived this life with what I have had to deal with and am going through.
I prayed hard tonight @ my life and being right with Him and felt so at ease like my cares had been lifted.It is a wonderful feeling when you're so close to Him. I talk to Him all day and feel His presence with me.It is a wonderful feeling of relief,happiness and contintment.I even sing to The Lord and feel so alive and blessed.I am writing this post to encourage someone else to feel that same way. It is so very possible if you just let Him take it from you...all your worries and what is weighing on your shoulders.Don't let the world fool you into believing that you have all the time in the don't.When He arrives on that cloud in the sky to receive all those who lived for Him, I know you want to be happy @ it and not fearing of what you've done or said.
When He says to offer up your bodies to Him while your are still alive, I feel He means to relinquish, give up yourselves to Him while you are still here and not dead and buried...and too late to do it. He doesn't mean to kill yourself, for how can you ask forgiveness if you gone? So, please don't do that! You don't know what life can give it a chance.It can get better if you just give it a chance. And, by the way, you know that it is a permanent solution to a temporary problem! I know life can be hard, but we have to withstand what it brings. Be strong in our faith and that will be sufficient. Trust me on this, you can.
He does also say in Romans that we all have different gifts,they differ in keeping with the grace that God has given each of us. If the gift of prophecy..then us it in keeping with the faith you have. If to serve,then serve.If teaching..then teach.Is it telling others how they should live? Then tell them. Is it giving to those who are in need? Then give freely.Is it being a leader? Then work hard at it. Is it showing mercy? Then do it cheerfully.
This all comes from Romans Chapter 12 and to me this last paragraph is all about what The Lord gives us to use and not to store away. He wants us to use what HE gave us and I will talk next time on come back to hear what I have to say @ that!
Read your Bibles daily. Pick some time in the day to just sit down and be with The Lord...He will bless you and keep you.
Until next time, Take care and always...GOD BLESS!!
