“Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me. There is more than enough room in my Father’s home. If this were not so, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am.” John 14:1-3
What a beautiful truth. I am being held up today by the arms of a King. I’m missing Nepal more than I thought would ever be possible.. I was able to share the love of Christ with so many people and they all touched my life in their own unique ways. To say I will see those people again some day is a faithful promise from our Creator. Until the day that I am in the Presence of my Father, I shall cling to the hope of what is to come.
Kathmandu, Nepal is a place forever etched into my mind. Apart from its beauty, it is broken, fallen, yearning for the truth. Join me in praying for the salvation of the incredible people of Nepal.
I wanted to start this blog to encourage others and share through writing what is on the heart of a young girl wandering through a vicious whirlpool called life. It’s amazing how much my relationship with the Lord has flourished since this time last year. However, I feel this time of writing for me could become much more than that. I pray that as you read my post, that your heart is stretched, broken, and flipped upside down. I pray that you find hope, peace, and contentment in yourself through the power of the Holy Spirit. He is the One True God and is all sufficient. He doesn’t need us. We sin against Him. Disappoint Him. Yet, He wants us. He desires more than anything to have a relationship with us. We should feel special. Actually, we should feel so overwhelmed that we fall to our knees in appreciation. Just think about it! The King of Kings, the Messiah, The Lord of the UNIVERSE wants to have a personal relationship with you…. WHAT? That doesn’t even make sense! Why would he want me? Why does he want you? Because. He adores you. He adores you so much that he put His love into action by sending His ONE and ONLY son to the Earth to pay the ultimate sacrifice. His son took on the death penalty that we all deserve so that we could live spiritually forever in His presence. Incredible. As the King of Kings died on the cross, He thought of you. YOU were on His mind. And He was praying. Praying that one day you would realize what He did for you. Praying that you would turn away from a life of darkness and bitterness to step into a life of light and forgiveness! He offers the ultimate gift and loves us so much that He leaves it up to us whether we want to accept or reject that gift. He doesn’t force us, doesn’t push us to Him, but simply offers us the gift of forgiveness. What great Love! It is up to us to decide what we want to do. When we accept Him, we are professing that we are sinners and that we make mistakes everyday. We are choosing to turn away from a life of sin and step into a life of repentance! When we turn to Him, He forgives us for those mistakes that we make every day. He promises us that when we do this, life will be hard. It will consist of pain, struggles, and tears. But He also promises that the pain here on Earth is not even comparable to the amount of joy and life that waits for us in Heaven. When we die physically, we will live spiritually with Him in paradise. That promise is one that will never be broken. However, we can also reject Him. We don’t have to follow Him. He won’t make us… but oh how He desires us!! When we turn away from Him, it’s like stabbing Him in the gut. Because He knows. He knows that we will spend eternity in Hell, separated from Him. He doesn’t want to see us turn away from Him. That is what hurts him the most. Think about it. Think about what He has done for you. Accept it, or turn away from it forever.
