    We may feel as if God has Forgoten us and left us but this is not true because he takes care of all his creatures. Read psalm 139 on God's complete knowledge and care
  • Written before the crucifiction of Jesus, the beginning of a poem, about someone suffering but at the same time testifying his faith to God, beleiving that the suffering will not be forever and that sometime soon after there will be peace and that God will be the true leader of nations.

    We must seek the kingdom of God first and love him with all your heart and soul. We must delight ourselves and put God first in our life and everything we need will be added unto you. Without Christ to dwell in our hearts we will never understand his words for his words gives us peace, life in abundance, joy and he will wipe our tears. You must accept God 's words and obey them for He who loves Jesus will keep his commandments until rapture. Fix your eyes to Jesus and walk with faith and not by sight. Jesus loves you so much and we must thank Jesus for his precious blood that shed for your sake and my sake. From his precious blood we are covered to forgive our sins and saved and we are now live with full of blessings and life in abundance. Thanks to Jesus for what he have done into our lives. He is faithful to his promises that goodness and mercy will follow us in everyday of our lives. Just believe Jesus that He is the Son of the Living God and invite the Holy Spirit to dwell in your heart. You will see the Glory of God Amen
