I believe Jesus of Nazareth is the son of God. I believe He came to earth to offer Himself as a sacrifice for sin. Through His death my debt of sin has been paid. Because of the sacrifice of Christ on the cross I can have a relationship with God. I am born again, baptized into the Holy Spirit. My life is one of profound joy, hope, peace, and freedom.

There was a time when I chose to be a slave to things other than Jesus. All of that came to nothing as it brought an emptiness, loneliness and hopelessness that led to depression and suicide plans. Through repentance, the healing power of the Lord Jesus, and a full surrender of my life to Him, I have joy and healing. I have not suffered from depression or suicide thoughts for years; more than that, I have profound joy and hope beyond my wildest dream. My Lord Jesus looks after every detail of my life. That doesn’t mean there aren’t difficult things, but it does mean I never have to endure them alone and without hope.

How wonderful it is to have a Love that is not only worth dying for, but worth living for. Without God, I just occupy space. All I have and all I am belong to Him. I love Him with all my heart and am His to do with as He pleases.

May you run to Him and find the fullness of life you have longed for. No earthly food or pleasure satisfies the longing of the heart as does the Food and Water of the Lord Jesus Christ. Praise, honor and glory be to God, the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End, the Source and the Fulfillment of all that has been and is to come.

So be it.
