WHY I WANT TO
JOHN 3:16 For God so loved the world, that He
gave His only begotten son to die for us that
we might have eternal life.
What horrible things have you
had happen to you?
A loved one died, you didnt get the
promotion you were in line to get, you lost
your job, you feel lonely, depressed,
rejected, misunderstood, nothing works out
right, your children are messing
up, and you did everything for them, or
you failed a test, you found out that guy/gal
was just using you, when you really cared for
them, maybe you cant stop drinking or
using drugs or eating too much, you have
If you are in one of the situations above or
just feeling "down", may I suggest
to you what maybe wrong, and how to change
First of all, You may be feeling hopeless.
Hopelessness is a state of mind, it is not a
reality. It is not something concrete, which
you can touch and feel with your hand. It is
part of the unconscious and different things
cause hopelessness for different people due
to their early childhood experiences,
including, developed thinking patterns.
Therefore, the sensation of hopelessness can
be changed, if you want to!
When we become a new person in Christ, we can
chose whether or not to place our hope in
God. It is called "Free Will". When
my hope is in God, I get through the rough
times, and my good times are so joyous, that
they are indescribable.
How does this work? It comes from FAITH in
JESUS CHRIST, as MY SAVIOR. You see I have
faith that the things above and other
depressing situations were wiped out when
Christ died on the cross, as an innocent man,
taking on mankinds sins. I trust His
Word and believe He is the source of all
hope, all good and a contented future.
I would like to share with you an example
from my life. I was feeling a need to learn
more about the Bible, but I didnt hear
God tell me to go to any of the programs,
which I looked into that were within an hour
of my home. Space does not permit me to go
into all the details; however, it became very
clear to me that He wanted me to attend a
program in Tulsa. So, I quit my job, left my
house behind with its mortgage continuing,
took the little money I had, and traveled
1300miles. Now, I trusted God enough to do
all of this during the time span of three
weeks because I kept receiving confirmation
from God that this was what He wanted me to
do. This certainly sounds like a faithful,
obedient servant; which I was. And yet, I had
to cope with all types of negative thoughts
coming against me, feeding messages to my
unconsciousness telling me I had no future--
I would leave school, only to find that I
would not be able to get a job, and lose
everything I had.
I had a music tape I played often in the car
which sings different Bible passages, one
song on it was Jer29:11... One of the Tulsa
Bible classes had a work sheet where I had to
fill in the blanks to several missing words
in this very Bible passage. I was certain I
could easily answer this, and began. "
For I know the _______(plans) I have for you,
declares the Lord, ______(plans) to prosper
you and not harm you, plans to give you______
and a ________." Suddenly, I
couldnt recall the last two omitted
words. This was upsetting. Do you know what
those two words are?( Hope and Future). HE
HAS PLANS TO GIVE ME HOPE AND A FUTURE. I
knew then that satan had blocked me from
hearing those words. I havent forgotten
those words since and will not, for they are
etched in my heart---they are what I believe
and provide me with courage each day.
I am thankful God did not ask of me the same
that he did of Abraham and Sarah or Noah.
How would you handle being either Abraham or
Sarah? You were into your 90s and still
waiting to have a child of your own? God told
you, you would. Would you still believe? Read
..Abram believed the
..Look at Romans 4:18.. Against all
hope, Abraham in hope believed. Read Hebrews
11:11. " By FAITH Abraham, even though
he was past age-and Sarah herself was barren-
was enabled to become a father because he
considered Him ( God )faithful, who had made
the promise." The impossible happened
because Abraham believed Gods Word to
Him; his hope became faith.
Lets look at Noah. How would you or I handle
being told to build a huge boat in our yard,
while all the neighbors laughed ? How many
years would you or I continue on this
project, without wearing down and deciding
God must be mistaken? But Noah continued,
because he had hope and faith in God, when no
one else did. We know what happened in the
end. ( Begin your reading with Genesis 5:6 )
Will You take the time to understand
Gods Word and His Will? How much
happiness do you think Abraham and Sarah had
after the birth of their long awaited son?
Much more joy than You have ever experienced,
unless You too, believe and have faith in
Your Heavenly Father.
Join me in prayer!
Father God , the source of all wisdom and
knowledge, of which I know only a little,
give me a love for the life You have given
me, through the death and resurrection of
Jesus. Once again, let me feel Your love, so
I will seek after knowledge of Your Word and
Your Will in my life. Recall to me all the
blessings I take for granted each day and now
(your name..).I pray in thanksgiving of
Christs Resurrection, and in His Name.
If you are currently, experiencing suicidal
feelings, you must get help, now! Call a
psychiatrist, a mental health worker at a
crisis center or your insurance company for
an immediate referral.
Once you no longer have these feelings, seek
a counselor, who understands Gods love,
and accepts Christ as their Savior. Begin
attending a Church, which preaches the Bible
and Christs redemption.
Begin reading the Bible and begin praying for
understanding of what you are reading.
Remember Abraham, Sarah and Noah, and then,
You must begin to accept and believe that God
has plans for YOU!-- to prosper and have a
blessed future. Don't give up; keep
praying and seeking.
