Because He loves you.
When you start reading different stories in the Word of God, you begin to realize that perfect people were not in the Bible. So why do we think we have to be perfect first before we come to the Lord. We don't, that's the beauty of it. He turns our lives around, he accepts us just for who we are. Some have done so much in their short life that they wonder if they can ever be accepted or forgiven. I am here to tell you, Jesus saves. He loves us regardless how we view ourselves or feel about ourselves. He brings us out of the pit of despair, the pit of hell, the grip of the enemy. He does and he finds us valuable in His Kingdom, even if the world doesn't.
He finds us and lifts us up to be something great. We all have calls on our lives, but it's what you do with that knowledge and call that determines your outcome. But I have to say sometimes we put ourselves into such a pit that we can not see how we can get out of it. When we can't seem to see a way out, we stress about it, that stress leads to panic because we just can't fathom how we can simply make it. That stress also can lead to depression because why would God find us valuable when we can't even see the good in ourselves?
God loves us because He knew us even before we were in our mama's wombs. He knows every hair on our head. He formed us, cell by cell, from seed and egg. He first loved us before our parents did. If your parents chose you through adoption, think about it, God knew they would be your parents. If you struggle with why you were even born, it's because God had chosen you for this life. If you have lost a baby, a brother, sister, son, daughter, mother, father, you are still a chosen child. It isn't that God didn't chose them, He did. He just needed them in heaven or maybe they went another place, that's not my judgment to make. But what I am saying, you are chosen to serve a mighty BIG God!
Sometimes we feel like life is so unfair, it's not what I thought it would be, it's not where I want to be, I am not content, I want this but can't have it.
But, dear, you have a choice here, you have the choice to be content, to be where you want to be in your life, what your life is and if it is unfair or fair. Choices are your choice.
What choice can you make today that will change your life?
Are you in debt? Debt is a choice and can be rid of. It's easy to walk out of it without going bankrupt. We have done it twice!
We pay down the credit cards. We then save in our checkbook by rounding up on change. We also set aside and pay all our bills first thing of the first of the month. We have reduced our bills to a few that living on the road we have to have. We have been buried in debt, but we have gotten out. I don't shop like most people. I find clothes on clearance and at thrift shops. I think our biggest expense is food. We will need to learn to reduce this.

I am going to go dig through her sites and get some ideas of how to save on our household expenses to be better at being able to serve the Lord with Gladness.
Until next time!
Jesus loves you and wants you to know HE LOVES YOU with an undying love.
