All you must do is receive, in faith, the salvation God offers (Ephesians 2:8-9). Fully trust in Jesus alone as the payment for your sins. Believe in Him, and you will not perish (John 3:16).

Breanne - From sin to surrender

Breanne - From sin to surrender
Breanne’s testimony is powerful! Surrender  To Surrender means to give oneself up, as into the power of another;  submit or yield.  And often this can’t be done,  until our Will and flesh has been defeated When we are on our knees, realizing maybe for the first time that our WILL power isn’t enough to save us  When life becomes unmanageable, surrender is the last thing on our minds.  We are fighting to stand up again, but our own plans, our own will power its not enough.  This is where God comes in...When we reach the age when we can make moral choices, we must choose whether to follow our own sinful desires or to seek God.   Joshua 24:15 - Says "And if it is evil in your eyes to serve the Lord, jchoose this day whom you will serve, whether hthe gods your fathers served in the region beyond the River, or kthe gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”   In Breanne’s case she didn’t initially believe in Jesus Christ, but thankfully Jesus Christ believed in her.   Surrender is a battle term. It implies giving up all rights to the conqueror. When an opposing army surrenders, they lay down their arms, and the winners take control from then on.   Surrendering to God works the same way. Breanne made a choice to trust Jesus and thank God she did! God had a plan for her life, and God has a plan for our lives as well, and surrendering to Him means we set aside our own plans and eagerly seek His.   The good news is that God’s plan for us is always in our best interest    Jeremiah 29:11 says "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare2 and not for evil, xto give you a future and a hope."   Unlike our own plans that often lead to destruction.   Proverbs 14:12 says "There is a way that seems right to a man, but uits end is the way to death."   Our Lord is a Wise and Generous victor;   He conquers us to bless us.   Thank you Lord Jesus!  God Bless you all!

Rob&Tracey - Homeless together. A story of a homeless couple.

Rob&Tracey - Homeless together. A story of a homeless couple.
Breaking up a homeless couple is unthinkable, but it is what the system requires, because the help isn’t there for those that found a partner and are walking together in the struggle. Rob and Tracey have suffered individually and together in life and now are trying to survive a new deeper level of trauma together, homelessness. You can bet, they feel the world is against them and love and trust are hard to provide and find. Thier trials remind me of Psalm 25 - here are the first 5 verses. 1  To you, O Lord, I lift up my soul. 2  O my God, in you I trust; let me not be put to shame; let not my enemies exult over me. 3  Indeed, none who wait for you shall be put to shame; they shall be ashamed who are wantonly treacherous. 4  Make me to know your ways, O Lord; teach me your paths. 5  Lead me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; for you I wait all the day long. God is faithful, and each day we can choose to surrender to God’s love, battle the trials in our lives as best we can, and ultimately rest in God’s grace and compassion. This is what Rob and Tracey are attempting to do! Give a listen and God bless you.
