A couple of years ago I started to think that there’s got to be more than just this life. I’ve always believed in God, but I just wasn’t settled. You’ve heard that we’re all basically good deep inside, but I discovered I’m just not. I may look good on the outside, I may do things others consider good and right, but my inner-most thoughts just weren’t. I needed to be right with God, to have peace in my soul.
I desperately wanted God to call me His friend. You know what ~ God saw my needs and gave me my deepest desires. I turned to the Bible and discovered that God loves me just the way I am, and He proved it at the cross. The God who created the universe actually loves me. It’s an overwhelming thought. The day I understood the cross and accepted what Jesus did for me was the day that I knew God loved me more that I could ever imagine.
With Jesus in my life, I now have purpose. He’s given me peace and contentment. My life is more amazing than I could have ever imagined. That day was the most important day of my life.
