I drew I love Jesus in the sand at the beach not realizing that minutes later I would be sharing Jesus' grace to a man that seemed to be griped with fear. 

When there soul is in anguish remind them Jesus is right there with him. 

Why does fear grip us?
Because we choose to hold onto it.

2 Timothy 1:7
For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self control. 
We don't recognize that Jesus took our fear and it was nailed to the cross. A redemptive story of God's love for you and me. 

1 John 4:18
There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.

Are you willing to share his redemptive love?

Are you ashamed of Him?

Jesus' blood washed all of our sins
When a person asks you why do you wear the cross, you remind them that you don't take wearing the cross lightly but rather in deep remembrance of what Our Savior had to endured on the cross for you and me. 

Jesus' blood washed all of our sins. There is power in the blood of Jesus. Don't be ashamed, bring them to Him and introduce them to the Savior. The one who loves them and who has forgiven them.

This gentle man on the beach shared with me that he counsels people that have been sexual abused, addictive to drugs or alcohol which I totally relate to both.

I was able to share how I was able to forgive the man that kidnapped and raped me. But only God can heal a broken heart that's why I need a Savior and this is why everyday I have to run to Him with all things. What Satan meant for bad God meant for GOOD!!! God WILL use your testimony for His glory. I know God saved me from death literally that why I choose to forgive this man.

Isaiah 41:10
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strength you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

What is forgiveness?

Psalm 34:4
I sought the Lord, and he answered me and delivered me from ALL my fears.


Jesus forgave him, I need to extend my hand out to forgive. Here is the thing my offender could have asked for forgiveness and guess what " He is forgiven". But I live a life of fear, anxiety, and bondage which I lived for years. Who is hurting now, this is why I choose to forgive.

1) He is Forgiven
2) I forgave and freed myself to love beyond measures.

Its a free gift!!
Receive It and Be Free

Romans 16:20
The God of peace will soon crush satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.

Are you willing to lay it all down at Jesus' feet?
Are you willing love like Jesus loved?
Are you willing to live a free life?
Are you willing to serve like Jesus did?

Do you have a heart for others?
Are you willing to forgive?

Are you willing to surrender your heart to Him?

Our Loving Father is waiting for you to come.

Lay it all down, receive him as your Lord!!!

Trust in Him, no one is more trustworthy.

He Loves YOU!!!

He has so many promises for you

He wants you FREE!!!!

He wants to embrace YOU!!!




Pray this prayer to receive Jesus:

Dear Jesus,

I need you, I can't do this on my own.
Jesus come into my heart and transform me from the inside out.
I surrender my life to you.
I want what you want and I want to desire what you want.
Holy Spirit rain in my life, an ever present flame.
Forgive me of my sins.
Cleanse me from everything.
I receive you into my life and turn from my ways and into your arms Jesus!!!!
Thank You Jesus for saving me.
In Jesus Name:

Beloved if you prayed that prayer please let me know, because I want to keep you accountable and pray for you too.

Blessings to all that have read and received this message, This message wasn't from me but inspired by The Holy Spirit.

Isn't it amazing what we can overcome with belief in a higher power!?! We all have obstacles, but knowing that there's something bigger than us really helps make those obstacles easier.

Forgiving others, and ourselves, is a great way to live happy lives...if we hold onto a grudge, it will only darken us.
