Living for Something More

Being on who notices negative comments more than most I have noticed that some seem to get to a point in life where they seem to have nothing to live for. Most often, family is gone, their health may be dwindling, and they find joy in very little. This is quite depressing because it does not have to be this way. When someone decides to accept Jesus Christ as their Savior from sin they are deciding to live for a relationship with God. People who begin this relationship, at any point in their life, are promised a rich life. John writes in John 10:10 (NIV) that “the thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” They are also promised deliverance and purpose in Psalms 50:15 (NIV) which says, that if they “call upon Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me.”

With that said, spiritual growth truly starts with a relationship with God. It starts with asking God for His forgiveness and is then fueled by love on both ends. After all relationships are two way streets. This relationship, though, truly gives hope to those who feel as if they have nothing left to live for.

  1. The reason I love reading your blog so much is because I always walk away with something new to apply to my life and relationship with God. Ultimately it should be one in the same. Thanks for letting God use you in this way.
