“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

  1. Oh how I envy all of you who have that sense of peace. I Am trying to get there! Just not sure how exactly.

     
    • Christy, the first essential thing is to say a prayer,

      “Lord Jesus, if you are there and the things written about you in the Bible are true, then I surrender my life and all I care about into your loving care. I step off the throne of my own life, and ask you to be Lord of my life, my choices, my relationships, Lord of my peace.”

      Then seek the company of those who believe in Jesus, and find a church that supports your faith and exhibits love and gentleness.
      If you don’t have a Bible, get one and spend quiet times reading it on a regular basis. You want to substitute the bad news with the Good News. The Gospel of John is a great place to start.

      • We are a fellowship of Catholics, Evangelicals and others who have differing opinions on some particulars of faith, but who are bound together by the love of Jesus Christ. There are many good churches to choose from. Just ask the Lord to guide you.

         
      • Thank you!

         
      • Thank you, I think about it a lot, but just never get around to it. There always seems to be a reason to put it off, but I know that is a poor excuse. I guess I am mostly afraid of being judged due to my spiritual ignorance for lack of a better term.

         
        • Christy, I would not judge you, and I know Jesus said there is more joy in Heaven for one person who was lost but now is found than for all the people who have already made it in. A kind gentle supportive church is like a hospital for the soul. I go to one like that, but there are many.
          PS: Lately I have been reading a little bit of the Bible before I let myself hear or see the first news story on TV or the internet. It does wonders for ones outlook on the day. If I were a doctor I would prescribe the following:
          “Read John 3:16 and Psalm 23 and call me in the morning,” to that song with the lyrics, “put dee lime in dee coconut and drink dem both up.” 😀

           
    • Praise God, God is good…. ALL the time. for me it was simply that I was sick and tired of being sick and tired of what I thought was life. It was nothing more than taking the time and telling/confessing all the trespasses I had committed and all those I had omitted to Jesus. It is not some chant or rehearsal it is just open straight from the heart confession of my need for Him in my life. Christ will in no way reject honest conversation toward Him. He already knows us better than we think we know ourselves. If you really want your life to rock, seek out His perfect will for life; that is what you were designed and built for before the foundations of the world; ask/seek/desire to be baptized in His Holy Spirit. This baptism is truly full and abundant life, whether abounding or abasing. Welcome to the family of the Living God.

       
    • For everything Jesus has done and does for us, all he asks of us is to surrender our trust, complete trust to Him. “Trust in me.” is what I’ve heard Jesus say to me during the Lord’s Prayer one evening. From the prayer, I saw and felt His presence and felt complete peace during that prayer. A peace I had never felt before. Once that trust is surrendered, faith and love flow abundantly.
      The Lord’s Prayer:
      Our Father who art in heaven,
      hallowed be thy name.
      Thy kingdom come.
      Thy will be done
      on earth as it is in heaven.
      Give us this day our daily bread,
      and forgive us our trespasses,
      as we forgive those who trespass against us,
      and lead us not into temptation,
      but deliver us from evil.
      For thine is the kingdom,
      and the power, and the glory,
      for ever and ever.
      Amen
      I agree that reading the bible is a wonderful way to become closer to Jesus and to give you a strong foundation and guidance when in the face of evil. But, if it seems intimidating to you, may I recommend a book titled “Jesus Unmasked” by Todd Friel. It’s a wonderful book that reveals Jesus throughout the bible from the Old Testament to the New Testament. Friel’s book is very informative and his wit is infectious. From reading the book, you begin to see Jesus’ presence throughout our biblical history, and not just the New Testament in red print, but a “scarlet thread” throughout, and it is amazing. While reading the book, I recommend a bible (my preference is King James Version, but the New King James Version is more up to date and a little easier to comprehend) to help reference Friel’s quoted biblical chapters and verses in his book. I also recommend a notebook for writing down notes and questions that will arise while you are reading and while you are pondering about Jesus. A highlighter for those special parts that stand out and touch you in a special way.
      Godspeed to you in your journey of discovery about our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
