Reflections: Peace

As I prayed along with the narrator, there was an indescribable sense of warmth and peace filling my heart. The emptiness that had been unfilled with all the distractions I sought in efforts to mask the pain in my life was gone! God suddenly had become very real to me! I could feel His presence as if He had His arms wrapped around me in a loving embrace. I opened my eyes and through the tears, everything seemed brand new. Joy had taken the place of sadness and I wanted to run all over the neighborhood telling people that Jesus is the answer! Not a good idea considering that it was already after 11pm!But I had to tell someone, so I called my friend who had invited me to the dinner. He was so pleased to hear that I had found what he had prayed I would find. Peace with God through Jesus Christ and a hope that will last forever!

Friend, this is available for you, too. Enduring peace. Joy that never ends! Worries that had plagued me about the future had vanished. Confidence took their place. I was sure that God loves me, and He wants me to be safe with Him in a place where the storms and turmoil of a world that is falling apart can't harm me. He wants to give you that same strong place where you can take refuge.

Jesus is willing to meet you where you are and give you a secure future with Him!

As Jesus has changed many lives during the past 2000 years, He can change yours, too. There are many people who have experienced His power to change lives, He's changed mine! There are many lives that have been changed through Jesus!

Here you have heard my story and the whole point of this place on the web. I didn't know in November 1997 that it would be the time for Him to make a difference in my life. I was looking for friendship and in the process, Jesus found me. It is not to say that this makes me better than you or that I am sadly misguided. Rather, it is to say what's been said for centuries:

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whosoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. (John 3:16-17)
