God’s design is to bring us love and joy. However, we are fallen people and sin leads us away from Him. Our lives take different courses. Some find temporary pleasures in drugs and alcohol. Others find their pleasures in pornography. Nothing this world can offer fulfills them. All this leads to is brokenness and shame. As people try to find substitutes for these worldly appetites it just bungees them back into this broken world. God knew about our fallen nature and therefore sent His Only Begotten Son to the earth. He was born in a manger to one day die for our sins on the cross. Those that believe in Him are saved. Jesus forgives everyone that turns from their sins and follows Him. They are restored into the fullness of God’s love. Because Jesus was resurrected all those that believe in Him will be resurrected into eternal life in heaven. All those that continue in their broken state until death are confined to hell. My question for you is what kind of life are you living? Are you living in God’s love, having accepted Jesus Christ as Lord? Or are you still living in your sins, trying to find fulfillment in things of the world?

I pray that if you are living a broken life that you turn to Christ through prayer. Even in your addictions come to Him and let Him loose the chains that have you bound. Turn away from your past and let the Lord restore you into His love. “Confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead” and “you will be saved.” Call upon His Name in repentance. Ask for His forgiveness and partake of His mercy and grace. You will be called His people. His love will overflow in your life. There will be nothing more fulfilling than the happiness He will give You. For when we need Him He will be there. Jesus is the king of my heart. He has given me new life. I can feel His great joy in my soul. Thank You Lord for taking me back, though I was wicked. I continue to make mistakes and You continue to forgive me. Your compassion has given me hope. I know I am not perfect but Your holiness helps me live a better life. Thank You for Your mercy. You deliver peace to my life. You fulfill my every need. I am blessed to follow You, my King. I sing of my great love for You. I praise You.

Romans 10:9-13 (NKJV)
9 that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
10 For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
11 For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.”
12 For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him.
13 For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

My life is dedicated to sharing the love of Jesus to the world. I love the Lord and want everyone to feel the same love. I would feel awful if I kept His joy to myself. For this I write daily devotionals to lead people to Christ. Jesus is the anchor of my soul.
