My Dearest Brothers & Sisters,
I come to you today from a place of great humility. I have led a far from perfect life but by the Grace of God I am an amazing place today living a life I didn’t exactly plan for. The purpose of my writing will be to reach out to my fellow sisters and brothers who may be going through a difficult time right now and may not know where to turn. My purpose is to give you understanding that you are not alone, you are not the only one who is going through this and that there is still hope for everything to work out better than you can imagine at this point in time. I want you to know that any advice I give comes from a sincere place in my heart and is based on the experiences I have had that will hopefully help you in some way or another. This will be a place of my testimony to give you real life examples of God’s goodness. Why he chose me to have these blessing I only understand is because he knew I would find a way to do his will which is to reach out to others and share the Good News of his love for each and every one of us.
From as early on as I can remember my grandparents always told me and the rest of the family and friends, “Remember… Jeaus loves you and so do we!” Although I saw that phrase written on hundreds of letters, Christmas cards , emails and greetings, I never really thought about it or acknowledged it. It really wasn’t until I went through the hardest times of my life that I was able to realize that God is not scary. He is is not there just to punish me but that he truly loves me and only wants the best for me. If you are going through a difficult time right now, maybe financially, or in a relationship, in your health or just having a tough time at work, I want you to know that God is singing “Lean On Me.”
Now we all know that song. I dare you to sing it out loud or just play it on your headphones! When you do imagine that is God …he inspired that song to speak to you and for me and for all the children of the world. He wants you to bring him your troubles and “Lean on Him” because we all need a friend and we always have that in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
So sister to sister, sister to brother, … I hope I can help you in some way. I would love to get yoru comments, questions and feedback as we go on this journey together. I am not sure where we will go exactly at this point but I have no fear only excitement and eagerness to see the blessings God’s goodness will unfold. Thank you for reading, thank you for your support, and thank you for being a great friend and child of God who people can “Lean On” in their time of need. Until we meet again…”Remember Jesus Loves You… and so do I!
