When you care about someone and their faith so much, you feel inspired to take action if they don’t know God. As much as you want to lay Christianity out in front of them and let them go from there, it isn’t that simple. Being a Christian isn’t going to church and doing all the right things. Being a Christian is having a close relationship with God and meaning it from your heart. Even though you feel like you should take action and get involved with that missing piece in their life, the only person that can fully develop that relationship with Christ is them. You can’t do it for them. However, you can be the spark that sets the fire going. You have to be careful not to shove Christianity in their face because it could scare them away from Christianity altogether. The main thing to keep in mind is that there is hope. God is the God of the universe, and even if there are rough spots right now, greater things are yet to come. Hope is a big part. Knowing that God has a plan for them is a special thing to keep in mind. With God, ALL things are possible!

We learn to love so many things in our lives. I can't ever fully grasp the love of Jesus in my thoughts. No matter how hard I try, it is so difficult to understand the perfect life Jesus lived along with the perfect decisions he knew to make. So powerful, majestic, loving, caring, forgiving, comforting, and just plain amazing! That is what God is to me! God is everything I live and so much more! I love Him so much and nothing could ever replace that love. No matter how much I come to love in my lifetime...nothing will ever replace the love from Jesus that I have so recently discovered.

A cure. A cure to cancer. A cure to sadness. A cure to helplessness. A cure. Heaven is the place for this. Imagine. Imagine heaven. Imagine love. Imagine peace. Heaven is the place for this. God does amazing things! I can only imagine what heaven will be like! All the pain and sorrow washed away forever...and only the love of Jesus in everyone's hearts!

Happiness is a quality that is given by God. It doesn't come from expensive things or physical objects. The joy you get from praising the Lord is true happiness in itself. Do you know that feeling when you could just bow down on your knees and imagine God on his thrown right before your eyes? That is the happiness that is true to your heart. It really fulfills your sadness and pain unlike expensive things and physical objects. If you are seeking happiness, I encourage you to read the bible and/or do a bible study every morning to see what God's daily message is for you. If you do this, it will help you find the happiness that you have been searching for. It has surely helped me!
