YOU are needed

Sometimes I wonder if anyone really needs me.   Other times I wonder why everyone around me needs so much.  No matter where I find myself, the truth is I am needed.  You are needed too.   God created you and I.  He is God.  He is all-wise and all-powerful and He made us!   If you are still breathing there is a purpose for you. We may never understand all that God does in and through us.   However, rest assured, if you are His child, you are needed and He longs to work in and through you.   Colossians 1: 27 says: Christ in you, the hope of glory.  

We all need hope.   Christ is our hope and He has chosen us to live at this time.  By the Holy Spirit, you can do all He's called you to do.  You can live out your calling.  You are needed.  Rise up and follow Christ where He is leading you.  Cast your cares on God because He cares for you and move forward!

In Christ,

What are we full of?

We hear reports of crazy stuff constantly via the internet.   There are memes, gifs, videos, blogs, songs, and on and on and on.  Information overload.  We can look on Facebook and know what our friends are doing at any given time.  We can read about every side of every argument.   Our brains can only contain so much.  We are constantly filling them full, full, full.  But wait.  What if this was your last day on earth.  Would you get on social media and read all you can?  Would you watch all the netflix you could?  Would you watch all of Fox News you could watch?  What would you fill your mind  with?

God's word is filled with truth.  Wisdom is found on the pages of the Bible.   How much do we fill up with scripture?   If you find yourself burnt out, cynical and depressed, check up on what you are filling up with.  Do you want freedom?  Do you want to find true love?  God has an answer in His Word.  Check it out!

Praying for you!
