The message below is near and dear to my heart for three reasons. First, because I love the Lord more than anything or anyone in the universe. Second, because I love people and am privileged to be used by God through my ministry to love, help, pray for, and encourage people worldwide in my life’s calling to help people to find and follow the Lord. Third, I was beyond human hope and repair for decades and struggled unfathomably. I still have my struggles, but today I have a love, peace, hope, and joy beyond measure contingent on the Lord. And I am thrilled to have countless opportunities to share with people like yourself the unfathomably awesome love and hope of Christ! Please find below the message called, ARE YOU STRUGGLING?
love & blessings,

Friend, run to Jesus! Run to Jesus! Run to Jesus! Cry out to Him! Cry out to Him! Turn from your sins. Believe He is Lord. Believe He died on the cross for you and was raised from the dead. Seek and receive His forgiveness. Commit yourself to Him once and for all and forever. Not just in words. In your heart. In your actions. In your very way of life.
Be His. Totally His. Don’t just believe in Him. Live for Him. He is the only way to be forgiven. He is the only way to heaven. He is the only way to everlasting life. Ask for and receive the gift of His Holy Spirit. Live your life led by His Spirit who will always and only speak to your heart and guide you in line with the Bible.
The Lord Jesus Christ, Savior of the world, is the only 100% guaranteed way to find answers and help and freedom and deliverance and healing and wisdom and direction from anything you are bound in, can’t break free from, don’t know how to handle, can’t stop hurting about, feel overwhelmed by, are struggling with, etc.
Whether you have believed in the Lord for a long time and faithfully follow Him day by day, whether you are a long-time believer but turned your back on Him and need to repent and return, or whether you have never placed your faith in Jesus as Lord and realize you need to do so right here, right now, for the promise of God’s forgiveness and everlasting life with Him, IF YOU ARE STRUGGLING WITH ANYTHING AT ALL, RUN TO JESUS! RUN TO HIM RIGHT NOW!
Cry out, cry out, cry out to the Lord! Pour out your whole heart to Him! Cry out to Him to forgive you, lead you, guide you, help you, comfort you, tell you what to do, heal you, strengthen you, whatever it is you need, run to the Lord and cry out to Him!
Open the Bible and read, read, and read, daily, each and every day, yes, and now, now when you are struggling, dive deep and deeper into it, crying out to the Lord in prayer, listening, hearing, doing, obeying, receiving His wisdom and strength, oh yes!
Run to Jesus, friend! Run to the Lord!
SPECIAL NOTE: JESUS IS TO BE OUR LORD, SAVIOR, FATHER, MASTER, REDEEMER, COMFORTER, TEACHER, ETC. HE IS TO BE OUR NUMBER ONE LOVE AND PRIORITY. HE IS PERFECT AND OFFERS US PERFECT LOVE AND PROVIDES ALL WE NEED. PART OF HIS PROVISION IS GIVING US LOVE, HELP, ENCOURAGEMENT, SUPPORT, AND PRAYER THROUGH HIS CHILDREN. JESUS SHOULD BE NUMBER ONE IN OUR LIVES INCLUDING WHEN WE ARE STRUGGLING, BUT WE SHOULD ALSO REACH OUT FOR AND RECEIVE HELP FROM HIS FOLLOWERS AS HE SO LEADS US AS WELL AS FROM PROFESSIONALS AND PUBLIC RESOURCES AT HIS LEADING SUCH AS MEDICAL DOCTORS, FOOD PANTRIES, HOMELESS SHELTERS, POLICE, JOB SEARCH HELP, ETC.
