I wish I could tell you that the walk with God is an easy one, but the truth is, it’s not. It’s tough and many who walk God’s path end up leaving God’s path because of it… Yeah, it can be lonely at times, but you must remember that your best friend is Jesus, He’s aways with you and He’ll never leave you.
I know, I know. You’re thinking “but that is not the same.” And you’re right, it’s not the same, in fact, it’s soooooo much better! Honestly it is! I promise the grass is greener on the other side!! :D
You just have to learn to go through that narrow door.
“Make every effort to enter through the narrow door, because many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able to.” - Luke 13:24
I highly encourage you to read about Paul’s life and learn from it. Could you imagine how hard it was for Paul after he came to know God?!? Wow! Did you know he persecutedchristians? and that He was a leader of this movement?! How crazy is that?! In fact he was present when Stephen, the 1st martyr was killed. Paul was really disliked by everyone. No one liked that guy and when He convertedto Christianity, the Christians didn’t trust him and his old followers (those who liked him persecuting christians) didn’t get him anymore and thought he was nuts. Paul really didn’t have anyone on his side.
Could you imagine how he felt? This is God working. The Potter at work. Ouch! This pruning really hurts. But give glory to God that He has set his eyes on you. Do not be dismayed with these small things. Cast your eyes on the prize Eternal life with Him.
Paul had studied to be a Rabbi early on, which made him think he should preach to the Jews, but the Jews even kicked him out of a city! He did not understand and he felt alone, but God had different plans.
Paul was in prison and what a great blessing! Nero, the Emperor, had commanded that every six hours that the finest young men in the whole Roman Empire, would be chained to Paul so he could teach them order about Christ!
So, I recommend that you do a study on Paul’s life. It will give you the strength to persevere. I know you can get through this!!
The walk with God may be hard at times but I promise it will be more then worth it in the end! I believe in you but most importantly God believes in you.

Anonymous asked: I know that God always took care of me. and despite knowing that His love is real, I do not feel loved. :( Please pray for me. thank you
God loves you even when you can’t feel His love. He loves you unconditionally; twenty four hours a day and seven days a week.
There is no limit to God’s love c:
A very popular verse in the bible that shows us just how much God truly loves us would be John 3:16
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
Now what I want you to do is dedicate this verse to yourself like so:
“For God so loved me that he gave his one and only Son, that if I believe in him I shall not perish but have eternal life.”
Write this down on piece of paper & post it somewhere where you’ll see it everyday.
God loves you so much <3
I encourage you to create a more stronger relationship with Him. This is going to take some time and effort, but I guarantee you it’ll be worth it.
Spend time praying and reading your bible even if it’s just 5min. c:
Remember God says “Draw near to me and I will draw near to you” James 4:8
God bless you! & I’ll keep you in prayer. <3
Anonymous asked: When will God stop letting me feel like I'm alone? :/ I know He's always there and stuff, but it never feels like it. Especially when I'm going through tough things.
One of the main problems that makes a barrier is having a resentment in our hearts.
God wants every single one of us to have a pure heart.
We can’t truly worship God if we have bitterness clinging on to us.
If you have resentment towards someone because they have hurt you, I urge you to let it go and forgive that person.
If you offended someone ask God for forgiveness and if possible go and apologize to whoever you’ve hurt.
In the bible God says “But if you do not forgive people their offenses, your Father will not forgive your offenses.” - Matthew 6:15
God wants us to let all of our resentment go, that’s why forgiving one another is so important.
Also if you want God to draw near to you, you have to draw near to Him. (James 4:8)
So remember to pray, read your bible, worship, and do good.
God tells us that we have to do good things for others.
If you have used clothing, used shoes, or something that you just don’t need anymore give it to someone that needs it.
If you know of someone that doesn’t have food. Give them something to eat.
“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in.” - Matthew 25:35
“Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.” - Matthew 25:40
God will liberate your soul and spirit if you do this.
God Bless <3
