Hello Friends,

A funny thing happened yesterday. I couldn’t find my little Yorkie, Tuppins. I kept hearing this little bark. I followed the sound and there was Tuppins, at the bottom of the stairs. It looked like he was just sitting there. I went down to check to see why he wasn’t bounding up the stairs as usual and what I discovered was so pitiful. He had gotten one of his little toe nails caught in his fur and he couldn’t move. He was all ”scrunched up”! I was so glad that I was there to rescue him which took some doing as I had to literally take the scissors and cut him free. Ha! I don’t know who was shaking more, him or me! But one good snip and he was free again.

When I think of my precious little Tuppins sitting there unable to move, I can’t help but think of thousands of people that are in that situation. They are immobilized with fear, by insecurity, by low self esteem, by drugs and alcohol or other habits they cannot free themselves of. Anger, jealously and hate have them all tangled up and they are unable to move forward in their lives. If only they would let God set them free.

Can you imagine the relief my little dog must have felt as I picked him up in my arms, hugged his trembling little body and told him everything was going to be all right, I was going to take care of him. I was going to “set him free”. And, it wouldn’t even hurt!

That is the message that God has for each and every one of us today. The Bible says, “Come unto me all yea that labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest”. He wants to gather us up in his loving arms and tell us, “it’s all right, I love you and I will set you free.” He will set you free of all the things that have you all tangled up. He is saying today, “my child, just put your trust in me, I will never fail you.” “I love you just the way you are.”

The Bible says to cast all your cares upon Him for He careth for you. How wonderful it is to know that you are loved and cared for.

You might say, well that sounds good but how do I do that? You do it in your own way. You can start out with, “dear God, I recognize the fact that I am a sinner. I know you died on the cross for my sins, I ask you right now to forgive me of those sins, I give you me God. I give you all my faults and failures, I give you the mess I’ve made of my life and ask you to forgive me and set me free.”

Or you can say. “ Hey God, it’s me. I’ve messed up AGAIN! But man, if you’ll help me out of this mess I’m in and forgive me AGAIN, this time with your help I’m gonna make it God. Now God I’m telling ya, I’m sorry man. Take away the desire for all this stuff I’ve been getting into.”

God wants you to “say it YOUR way”! Just say it! And mean it!

He will forgive you the instant you ask Him to. No, you won’t be perfect, yes, you’ll stumble and fall once in while, but the difference this time is that God is with you rooting for YOU. He’s saying, “pick yourself up, dust yourself off and keep going. I’m on YOUR side!” You will feel Him in your heart! YOU CAN MAKE IT!

(continued)

Start talking to God just like you would talk to your best friend. He hears you wherever you are. You don’t have to kneel down and have your eyes closed for God to hear you. So you can even talk to him in the car, or on the job, He will hear you wherever you are.

Allow God to become a part of YOUR life. Become best friends with the most famous person that ever walked on this earth! JESUS!

Oh, and He has given you an instruction book on living……… The Bible! If you’ve never read it start with the NEW TESTAMENT first.

May God Bless you, each and every one………..
 

 

Lots of love,
