I walk in the midst of you. I know when you are lonely and when the burdens grow too heavy. Turn to Me, for I AM ever near to aid and comfort you, for I love you.
Can you not feel My Presence when the evening shadows gather and you are quite after the day's labor?
In illness and in health, I AM ever near. Do you not fee My Presence? How gladly I would take your burdens upon Me, to lighten the load you carry.
At daybreak, think of Me, when the pink ribbons of love-light stream across the skies, for I AM there.
Look at the flowers, for deep within you will see my face. Look to the song of the birds, the roar of the winds, for I AM there. Look at the stars, for they are My eyes, that see in the depths of you. Look at your brothers and sisters --for I AM there also.
Know you are spirit, eternal in the heavens. No harm can befall you, for I give my angels charge over thee, for you are My beloved.
Turn within, deep within your heart, for I AM there also, for I AM THEE. I AM with you always. Be ever conscious of My Presence.
The journey of earth seems hard, and often fear overtakes you. There is nothing to fear, for I know your every though and seek to fill you with strength and courage, no matter how hard the way.
Speak to Me, in the quite of your heart, and I will answer and guide you. Know you not you are eternal spirit? No harm shall come nigh thy dwelling. Spirit animates you, as you go about your daily tasks, fulfilling My plans for you.
I need you as you need Me, to fulfill My plans, to express My love to all. Let the light within you shine forth, to lighten and bless all you meet, and touch the hearts of those who know Me not.
If you are not sure you have personally accepted Jesus Christ into your heart as your Lord and Master, NOW get alone with God and pray (praying is talking, just talking) this simple prayer or chat:
"God, I come to you in the Name of Jesus Christ, Your Son, Who died to bring forgiveness to all men, women, and children. Be merciful to me, a sinner. I am sorry for all my sins and shortcomings. Forgive me and wash my sins away. Give me the assurance that I am born again. I will love You and serve You all the days of my life. amen."
Now I have some suggestions for you. Starting today, talk to God every day. That is prayer. Just talk to God like you would to anyone else. He is your best friend.
Second, let God talk to you by reading regularly the Bible, Hos Holy Word. Start with the New Testament..in the gospels. You will be thrilled as the words just come alive and mean more than you ever thought possible.
Third, talk to someone else about God each day. This is called witnessing, and will make you a stronger Christian.
And last, think of this: candles stand in candlesticks; light bulbs go into light sockets; trees grow in soil. Without candlesticks, candles would fall over; without being plugged in, light bulbs would never shine; without soil, trees would die. And...for Christians, a church is a candlestick, a power source, and somewhere to be rooted, so you can stand, shine and grow.
But avoid at all cost legalistic churches like the Baptists; avoid traditional churches like the Episcopalians, Presbyterians, Lutherans and Methodists --all those are full of bones of the dead that you will not want to be part of or else you end up a dead bone like them; the Holy Spirit has left those churches long time ago. AVOID well-know regular religious churches or denominations because those will put the yokes of spiritual slavery around your neck and bury you alive. Also you should avoid cults like the J.Witness and Mormons as those are deceptive organization that use the name of Jesus to lead you astray in perilous paths, they are wolves in sheep's clothing. Look for charismatic contemporary churches and groups like the Vineyard and Willowbrook churches and Pentecostal ones.
