One of my greatest passions is teaching people that God loves them and has an amazing plan for their lives. There are so many who are hurting and hopeless because they don’t know God, and haven’t experienced His love for them.
I know what it’s like to live without real peace or joy…to feel insecure and afraid of rejection all the time. Because I was abused by my father throughout my childhood, I became an angry adult who believed it was up to me to take care of myself, and I had a hard time trusting that anyone loved and accepted me.
When I finally got a revelation that God loves me unconditionally, and He cares about every part of my life, I started to change. There was a lot of healing that needed to happen in my soul; the journey wasn’t easy, and it took longer than I thought it would.
But I can honestly say it was worth it, because God has brought me to a place where I enjoy my everyday life with Him, and now He can use me to help others experience His love and have His hope and joy in their lives.
John 10:10 says Jesus came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows). Jesus died so we can have a full life—not just a barely-getting-by, “hanging on till Jesus comes back” existence.
God wants to have an intimate, personal relationship with you, and spending time with Him, acknowledging Him in all of your ways, is the key to an abundant life filled with His righteousness, peace, and joy (see Proverbs 3:6; Romans 14:17).
I love spending time with God, praying, and studying His Word! It’s the first thing I do every day because I can tell you from experience that having God’s help and presence in our lives is vital. He is the author of all true success and everything good. Without Him, we can do nothing of true value.
