Truth is Everything!

Think about it. If truth is what is truly real and falsehood is a lie, then truth is everything! Truth is not something that can be created by sincere belief. It also cannot be destroyed by lack of believe. Truth does not find it's origin in the heart or intellect of man. Nor does it change from one person to another. You can't decide that 2+2+=5, or that red is black, or that evil is good. That would make US God and that's crazy.

Truth simply exists because God created it that way. And the good news is that God's truth rocks! Here's a sample:
- You are a precious hand-painted original. You are more valuable than you can ever imagine.
- Your heavenly Father loves you with a love that words will never be able to describe.
- God has reached out to you by sending His son to bring you into a friendship with God.
- No matter who you are, or what you have done, God's grace is sufficient to give you a new start!
- Jesus Christ IS God in the flesh, truly someone you can trust with your soul.
- God gave us His Word of Truth (The Bible) to give us His clear directions for life and spirituality.

Want a good dose of truth. Pick up a Bible today and start reading! And be sure to ask God to help you understand and apply it to your life. He will help you. Want to know why? Because He is REAL. That's the truth!

The God Who Is There

No matter how dark the night, the morning always comes. There is a God. He is real and He loves you. He has counted every single hair of your head. He has watched every single tear that you've shed. And He is waiting to comfort and restore you.

Not only that...He wants you to to learn to walk again. Then to run. Then to run into battle for the advancement of His Kingdom. He has a purpose for your life that is good and filled with meaning and joy.

He may seem far away at times. He may seem silent at times. But He is there. He has always been there. And He has always, always, always loved you. How do we know? The cross. Extraordinary, unbelievable, amazing love was shown to you when Jesus died for your sins so that you could be forgiven and go to be with your Father in heaven some day.

Until then remember, if you are in the dark, the light is coming. If you are in a valley the mountain top will be come. Because God is there, and that means there is always hope.
