LOST AND FOUND
This could be your Monday morning motivation but I have a different message today.
I kinda have a book review today.
So I read the book "Lost and found: Finding hope In detours of life" by Sara Jakes in the month of June.
Read about my "12 books a year"
Like every girl, Sarah Jakes dreamed of a life full of love, laughter, and happy endings. But her dreams changed dramatically when she became pregnant at age thirteen, a reality only compounded by the fact that her father, Bishop T.D. Jakes, was one of the most influential megachurch pastors in the nation. As a teen mom and a high-profile preacher's kid, her road was lonely. She was shunned at school, gossiped about at church. And a few years later, when a fairy-tale marriage ended in a spiral of hurt and rejection, she could have let her pain dictate her future.
Instead, she found herself surrounded by a God she'd given up on, crashing headlong with Him into a destiny she'd never dreamed of. Sarah's captivating story, unflinchingly honest and deeply vulnerable, is a vivid reminder that God can turn even the deepest pain into His perfection.
Like Sarah's story, my life's journey has been a total sum up of God's love and redemption for mankind.
My life has journeyed on the same road that many never came back from.
I have been battered, bruised, and broken.
I have been defeated.
I have been depressed.
I have given up on life.
Yet God's unending love keeps calling and keeps reaching out.
If this is you too, there is good news.
The good news is only found in Christ and His never-ending love for us.
There is a way God sees you but there has to be an alignment with who you are.
There has to be a personal relationship between you and Him. Not the one where you only reach out once in a while but the kind of relationship where He becomes your only option.
In case you had a smooth relationship with Him before and something or certain situations make it hard for you to keep up here is a chance to renew that friendship.
If you didn't know Him before or everything you've read seems bizarre to you or you are even in a deep mess and don't know how to get out.
Here is even a better chance to give God that special place in your life and watch Him make everything brand-new for you.
I do not know how but I do know for a fact that there is a God in heaven whose love is so real that He will never give up on you even when you've given up on yourself.
God's love is real.
If you would like to accept Jesus into your life or rededicate your life to Him, simply make these confessions; " Lord Jesus, I accept you into my life. Come into my life and make me new, wash me with your blood, and cleanse me from sin. Thank you, Jesus, I am born again. In Jesus name. Amen.
Thank you for making these confessions and welcome to the family of Christ. Please continue to build up your faith.
If you would like a follow up kindly reach me on the mail in my profile. God bless you.
July is almost half gone and I haven't read any book yet. Please I need a book recommendation for this month.
