Real Joy and Real Peace.....


Good Evening my dears.. 
I just wanted to do a little post tonight ... 

Sometimes... not often... I will do a post when I write from my heart.. 
Something that I like to share with you who are so sweet as to read the words here and not just look at the pictures ..smile 
You are the ones who have come to know me ... 
Just as I am... smile.. 

As you know I am a Christian... 
I follow the Lord Jesus Christ and love him from the depths of my heart.. 
Do you remember in the Bible when Thomas doubted that Jesus was alive and when he actually figured it out that it was actually Him,  he cried out.. 
My Lord and my God.. 

Well, that is how it is with me.. 
Jesus Christ is my Lord and my God.. 
So with that being said I just wanted to share with you how thankful I am to be able to celebrate this most dearest of days... 
Resurrection Sunday.. 

We had such a wonderful blessed day ... 
This morning we gathered together with our church family and worshipped the King of Kings..
His presence was so real and touched our hearts in such a sweet way..  
And then again tonight we remembered His body and His blood with Communion... 

What a privilege it is to be washed by the blood of the Lamb. 
To know and understand that because of Calvary I can be in daily communion with the God of the Universe... 
I don't need to go through a priest and make a sacrifice but I can go to Him any where and at any time... 
He is always available and all I need to do is speak His Name and He hears me.. 
And because He gave His life as a supreme sacrifice we have a confidence of spending eternity with Him.. 

Because He made a way.. 

A way of salvation for you and for me.. 
All I had to do was to surrender my heart to Him in repentance.. 
Confess my sins to Him and ask Him for forgiveness and He forgave me and gave me peace in my heart.. 
Then I was baptized in His Name and  I received His precious gift of His Holy Spirit...
When I did that then He gave me a new life..
He covered me with His precious blood and forgave me my sins.. 

Oh happy day !!
To walk each day in freedom from sin and the bondage of Satan.. 
To have the joy of salvation.. 
No words can express the joy that Jesus brings to a heart and life that has surrendered their life to Him.. 
He makes a difference in every facet of your life..  
He blessed our home and our family.. 
He makes life worth living and then to know that He is preparing a place for me.. 
When I die I go to be with Him.. 
I don't need to fear what the future holds or if I am going to die because I have given Him my heart.. 
My life is His... 

Because He lives I can face tomorrow.. 
When He arose from the grave He arose victorious.. 
He paid the debt that I owed for my sins.. 
Now I don't have to fear because He did it all.. 

Can you imagine that the King of Kings.. 
The Lord of the Universe .. the Creator of everything loved us enough to die for us...
Aren't we a blessed people who know Him and love Him.. 

Life still happens.. 
Yes.. 
But when it does then we have a refuge.. 
He comforts us and gives us strength.. 
We have His Word to gain strength and guidance ... 
He holds our lives in His hands and we only need to put our trust in Him knowing that all will be well... 
And He is coming back again... 


If you don't know Him as your Lord and your God please turn to Him and give Him your heart.. 
You will be so glad you did.. 
The old rugged cross will make a difference in your life here on earth but most importantly it will prepare you for eternity... 
To know that you will spend it with Him... 
The one who is our Redeemer and Saviour ... 
He will give you real peace... 

The world is full of unrest and strife but when you know Him then your heart has peace... 
The only real peace in this world today comes from Him.. 


I hope this will bless you tonight .. 

This blog is a blessing to me and you bless my life but if I didn't share with you the good news of Christ then it would be a waste of my time.. 
I pray that you see Him in me with my daily life that I share with you all on here but sometimes I need to get real and share Him with my words, too.. 
OK?  

Here are a few scriptures for you to help you find your way.. 
    John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
    John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
    John 14:6 Jesus said to him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes to the Father, but by me.
    Romans 3:23   for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
    Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
    Romans 10:9 That if you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you shall be saved.
    Acts 2:37-38 When the people heard this, they were cut to the heart and said to Peter and the other apostles, "Brothers, what shall we do?"38.. Peter replied, "Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins.  And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.. 
    2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
    Ephesians 2:8 For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
    Ephesians 2:9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.

May God bless you and keep you.. 
Thank you so much for visiting here tonight..

  19. Without Him, life wouldn't be worth living. You have a beautiful testimony Faye and thank you for sharing your heart with us. If you ever come across any books by E.W. Kenyon I know you would be blessed by his writings. He goes into depth about being a new creation in Christ. His books are wonderful and I know you would enjoy them. Blessings to you and yours.

  29. Hello dear Faye
    A beautiful post Faye celebrating Easter Sunday the day Our Lord arose from the dead, victorious over death. It is the greatest feast in our Christian calendar. We recognise that God our Father has given us new life, through His son, Our Lord Jesus Christ.
    I love all the scripture readings you have mentioned, my favourite is John 14:6 I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes to the Father, but by me.

    The gift of faith is the greatest gift any of us can receive - I know I'm always wishing I had this and that (currently on my wish list is an ipad) but in my heart I know I am richly blessed because I have the love of God.

    Blessings to you Faye my dear bloggy friend in Christ.
    Hugs
    Shane
