JUST A THOUGHT-

Sometimes i really wonder how people without Jesus live. Its been a question in my mind for quite a while, and God’s constant answer is- “They Dont”
They dont live, the bible is clear, Jesus is life and whomever believes in Him will not perish but have everlasting life. (John 3:16) according to that verse, those who believe in Jesus have life, cuz that’s what Jesus himself is.. But what about those who DONT? they will perish, according to the Word of God. What does perish mean? well, in other versions this portion of john 3:16 is translated as… “….believes in him will not DIE….” so perish means death, spiritual death, separated from GOD.
i picture my lord, reaching out to them longing for them to have life, wispering to their ears, and i see them rejecting the blood of Jesus, i see them hurting between smiles.. they are happy people we often think. but we know they look for happiness in all the wrong places, there’s only one thing that can fill them up, and they would see it if they would just look at the cross. I see my Jesus, saying their names, I see my savior diying for them, and i see them waisting the best years of their lifes.
i see them hurt the same way i used to, i see them lost the same way i was, i see their empty hearts the same way mine was, i see tears everynight, i see broken hearts, and i see no hope.. you see, they are just as blind as i was.

God does not need us, we need him. -weather you want it or not- You need Him, and He WANTS you-

Today my heart bleeds,
it bleeds for those who pretend to know it all
it bleeds for those who think they are happy
it bleeds for those who hide their emptiness
it bleeds for those like you
for those without Jesus-

WORSHIP-

There is a lot going on with me right now. Theres a lot of decisions to be made, and that stresses me out. Things like what to do after college and choosing a mate, are running around my head, day through night. Sometimes, i cant even sleep.. And i know i need to lay my thoughts to the cross, but i just find it really hard.


God keeps doing weird things, things that, acording to me, are bizard. I just dont seem to get what in the world He is thinking, isnt He supposed to take care of my heart? isnt He supposed to help me keep my thoughts organized? after all that has been my prayer for a while.. But no, aparently He keeps allowing my thoughts to run around my head, and they just dont stop. ive been getting head aches and all.


I seriously dont understand what God is doing with me right now, but theres something inside of me, that shouts ¡Its all good!. There is something within me, that draws me to my bible everynight.. Theres this hunger for His word, a hunger ive never felt before, and even thought im just a child who doesnt understand what her dad is doing, for some reason i feel closer to Him. He is teaching me how to kneel and how to walk in His presence.


This is inidiscribable


Last night i had a dream, it was a good dream.. probably too good. But i sorta woke up thinking that had actually happened, and then realized it was just a dream, and it was the worst thing… And i dont know why i had that dream anyways, after all i didnt need to be all disapointed this morning.


i hated it, i was so mad.
I didnt understand, but i chose to worship.

and i felt peace.
never ending peace.

Not understanding, can be really hard for me, because i want to know whats going to happen.. and i want to know NOW.

but seriously, when i think about the cross, and when i think about how much He really loves me, my crazy annoying thoughts just go away.. And worship is all i can do.

crying has never felt so good
as it did this morning.

He is faithful, kids
and i cant stop speaking of His goodness.

so, worship Him
no matter what you are going through
come to Him
just come to Him

I remember this day. clearly And that dream surly didn’t come true. BUT I can tell you something today. almost 3 years after i wrote that.

It will be ok.

whatever you’re going through. Just choose to worship Him.

and.

It will be ok.

Im ok now.

🙂

Ok, I have decided to post some old things that ive written.

DISCIPLESHIP-

here is a thought about what God has been teaching me these days.

what if we are being selfish?
what if by going to these mission trips we are just sharing a small part of the Love of God.?
What if we are keeping
THE BEST PART to ourselves?
yes, the best part of salvation, is not knowing what Jesus did, and how much He loves us, the best part is actually LIVING His love.
the best part of Christianity is JESUS HIMSELF. is the RELATIONSHIP.-
are we sharing that, or are we keeping that to ourselves?

people, we need more.
God demands more from us.

When we read about Jesus in the bible, we see a Jesus that not only spoke of the Love of the father, we see a Jesus showing it, we see a Jesus living it. we see a Jesus that loves relationship. we see a Jesus that went to weddings, he had dinner with people, he was trying to speak with a lot more than words, he was speaking throughRELATIONSHIP.

I understand one-week long mission trips. where theres no time for follow up. But what if we change our minds, and stop thinking about how many people get saved, and start thinking about how many people are following Him. What if, instead of going to several places, we split up and try to spend one week doing discipleship and sharing The love of God with one family.
i garantee, we will see more fruits. and maybe not a lot will get saved, but a few will continue to follow Jesus. and then, and only then, we will be fullfilling the Great commision. Jesus, says to go and make DISCIPLES of all nations, not just believers.

we want disciples
we want all nations to follow Jesus, not just to know him
knowing him is not enough, it may be enough for salvation
the bible says that whosoever believes in him, will be saved, but salvation is not the point here. A bunch of people can get saved, and they will go to heaven. but they will not know their father, because they didnt enjoy a personal relationship with Him while here on earth.

is that what we want?
i dont think so.

We have been talking about love
yet, we have not shown it the way we are supposed to.
we must care about these people, and start sharing the best part of
christianity. Jesus himself.

Think about it.
and ask God to show you His heart.
we need to start a revolution
God demands more from his children

I dont clame to be right here.

what are your thoughts?
