God can change your life if you let Him

Dear Editor:

This world is crazy and can certainly be tough. But, in the same breath, this world is beautiful!

It is one thing to believe in God; it is an entirely new world the moment you realize God can and will change your life. The creator of the universe loves you! What an amazing comfort. Every moment of every day God patiently waits for you to turn to Him.

Sounds way too good to be true, an endless supply of love, grace, beauty, joy and peace. But it’s ours for the taking. We have done nothing to deserve it and we are the only ones who can accept or deny this gift. No words do justice in describing His peace and joy – but I have tasted them both and in those moments I am completely alive! I am willing to bet I could beat my brother Dan in the 100m dash in those moments. I am weightless and I am free! Free of judgments, fears, and the worries of this world. God is with me.

Any other moments in my life pale in comparison to the moments I spend with God in my heart and as my guide. My greatest desire now is to share this unbelievable, amazing feeling with all the people I know and love.

Please, give it a try. Say hello to God today. He will answer you back – just keep your eyes open to Him. The show is spectacular and you won’t want to miss it.

Let Him guide your actions and words. He’s not seeking perfection; He’s seeking your attention.

“...Blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.” – Jeremiah 17:7-8

Parents, teachers, coach-es, students, friends, family – be slow to anger, slow to judge and quick to show compassion.
