| Can we talk about Jesus?|
I know anytime is a good time to talk about Jesus, but I thought this is a great season to just talk about Jesus.
You know, I really am not sure what is going on in my walk with Jesus, but I seem to just cry a lot lately. It's really a cry, because I just think more about all the things he has Blessed me with in my life,that I never deserved. Maybe it's because I am older "60" I am not sure, or maybe it's because he just see's something in me I don't, and it effects my Spirit. I really did not know were I was going with this thread, but I guess that's a good thing, I feel most of the time we don't know the what or why's it's truly something that's spirit lead. Lets just talk about Jesus.

Good subject to discuss. :)
How wonderful it is that we have such a unbeatable God who is willing to fight our battles. Certainly we know if God is doing the fighting - He will attain the goal He wants.
This last month we called AT&T and asked about upgrading our DSL speed. They changed our whole service package and 'said' the monthly rate would only increase by a few dollars. Of course that was not true. This months bill was frightful and totally out of the realm of our budget. Before calling to 'discuss' the issue I prayed and asked God to fight the battle for us, since I am aware I could not handle it. Let me report that he resolved it all in our favor and we still have the new faster service. In the past when dealing with them things did not go anywhere as well. That was because we forgot Him and tried to manage things on our own. Thank God for teaching us to allow Him to fight the battles.

Thank you for the post brother.
Jesus is good. In all that He does, He is good.
When I falter and begin to move away, He allows for me to go through trials in order to bring me back to Him. When I become prideful, He allows me to be humbled, in order to move back to Him. When I begin to worry about life, He steps in to remind me that He is in control and that I am not. When I am broken hearted, He comes to comfort me through His love. When I walk through trials, the Lord allows me to be tested and tried, in order to grow in strength in Him. When I cry, the Lord hears my cry and prayer, and accepts my prayer.
He is good. The Lord is good. All that the Lord does is good. I am humbled and amazed that He would call me His own. Psalm 6:8-9, "...For the LORD has heard the voice of my weeping. The LORD has heard my supplication; The LORD will receive my prayer."
James Smith says it better then I....
I would have destroyed God if I could and have blotted His name out of creation! The language of my heart and life was, "No God for me!" My heart was filled and fired with enmity against Him, and at times I could have cursed Him to His face!
I hated His law.
I despised His gospel.
I abhorred His people.
If I could I would have crushed His cause!
How astonishing that such a wretch was allowed to live!
How astonishing that God had not crushed me by His power, and sentenced me to Hell!
But, O the longsuffering, the patience, and the sovereign grace of God! He bore with me. He loaded me with his benefits. He determined to win me with His love. Nevertheless I sinned yet the more, and provoked Him with my ungodly conduct. O how surprising that I am not in Hell! Surely there are many already in Hell who were never such great sinners as I have been!
But, the Lord is good, ready to forgive, and plenteous in mercy unto all those who call upon Him. He put a cry into my heart, He listened to that cry, and made me a new creature in Christ Jesus. He unveiled my enormous wickedness before the eyes of my mind, which filled me with confusion, despondency, and shame. He laid me in the dust, and seemed to doom me to despair. He . . .
crushed my proud spirit,
destroyed my infernal enmity against Him,
and melted me into contrition with His love.

He is big enough to share the love I now know.
He is the love I share.
I am never rejected. Always forgiven.
He is my couselor,comforter and guide
He is the most precious and favored topic of all conversations.

Amen, a subject about Life .........bro Frank
JESUS YOU ARE
You are higher than the highest heavens
You love is deeper than the deepest sea
Your mercy is beyond all comprehension
And your grace goes on eternally
You are the bread of life, the one true vine
You are the glorious gate for the sheep
You are the way, the truth and the life
And deep cries out to deep
You are master and lord and king of kings
You are worthy to be praised
Your the anointed one, the prince of peace
I will worship you all of my days
You are the ressurection and the life, oh lamb of God
You are the creator and ancient of days
Your the alpha and omega, beginning and end
You are perfect in all of your ways
You are the conquerer, creator, exalted one
You are victorious over death and sin
Your a father to the fatherless, faithful and true
You are this fire that burns deep within
You are my rock and my fortress, the foundation of life
You are the God that healeth thee
Your the lion of Judah, my lamb of God
You are the Christ that set me free
You are incorruptable, infallible the hope of mankind
You are the light that shines in the dark
Your majestic, omnipotent, eternal king
You are the lord over all of my heart

Thank you all for you responses, just the few responses here have just Blessed my soul so much. He is my only hope by choice, I will never take my eyes off the Creator again. He is the reason I want to get out of bed in the mornings, just to see with excitement what he has for me today. Lord Jesus, yes I have been Blessed, not with material things, but with your Love, and hope when I had no reason to have any. Lord, I stand steadfast, waiting on the biggest Blessing I will ever personally receive, the day you come back to get me. O yes! lets do talk about Jesus. I Love you Lord!

Amen! O' Amen!
Turn your eyes upon Jesus and look full to His wonderful Face and the things of the world will grow strangely dim in the light and glory of His grace.
Turn our eyes upon Jesus.
In my life I can praise Him because I found out it is so very true that the more I spend time with Him, the more I long and seek to know Him the more the desires and things of the world grow strangely dim. And He has become my magnificent obsession.
The sin I once found myself in - I am there no longer.
The wants I once had - are no longer there.
The more I am in the Word and alone with Him the more I want of Him and our time together.
I worship God for He is all together lovely. We were created to have fellowship with Him. If we will seek Him with our whole heart He says we will find Him. Seek Him while He may be found. Sit at His feet and learn of Him. Mary has chosen the better.
In His Presence is where I long to be.
If Jesus be lifted up He will bring all men unto Himself.
Praise God Brothers and Sisters, lets lift up the King of Kings and Lord of Lord's all throughout this forum the Lord has blessed us with.
Hallelujah to the Lamb of God. It is finished. Now it is time to seek His face.
All glory to God!
