answers to all your questions!
Before God spoke the universe into existence He knew my name.
Before He created the atmosphere He
held me in His heart. Before He created the oceans, the land, the plants and
creeping things, He chose the color of my hair. Before He created the
animals and before He created the first man, He loved me. He placed within
Adam's body all of the DNA of every human being who would ever walk the
earth, and within him he placed the color of my eyes.
Before He knit me together within my
mother's womb, he cherished the sound of my laugh. Before I shed my first
tear he felt my pain. Before my sin, my sorrow, and my stubborn
disobedience, he chose to carry them to the Cross. He hung there His blood
pouring out for me. Why he chose to do this I cannot comprehend.
God wanted me to be his own child. How
can that be? With all of my flaws and character defects He wanted me to
believe in Him, and He gave me the grace to believe in myself. God loves me
with a fire that can never be quenched. I am special to him, even if I am
not special to anyone else, including myself.
I have tried to perfect myself, and I
have failed. I have tried to believe the world's message, but I have found
no answers. I have followed the paths forged by others only to find disaster
at every bend in the road.
Only God has given me the answers that
I have sought. Peace. Love. Fulfillment. The change in my life is not a
complicated one. It's not about how good I am or how I pray or how often I
go to church. It's not about money or fame or popularity. I cannot speak for
others. They must decide for themselves. I only know that the world has
given me no happiness.
After searching my entire life, I have
only been able to find the answers to my questions on my knees at the foot
of the Cross.
Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth
out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the
But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed
thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by
thy name; thou art mine.
Thus saith the LORD that made thee, and formed thee from the womb, which
will help thee;
Matthew 10:29-32 (KJV)
two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the
ground without your Father. 30 But the very hairs of your head are all
numbered. 31 Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.
32 Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also
before my Father which is in heaven.
God bless you and yours.
