God in three relationships: Introduction

The Holy Trinity, one God in three separate yet equal forms, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. The Trinity is clear yet also mysterious in nature. Many have read about the Trinity, written about the Trinity and of course prayed about and to the Trinity.

But today I want to start a series about God not in three forms but in three separate, yet equal relationships.

Next week’s blog entry will be about God as a best friend, He is with you through everything, He is there for you when you need him, in big situations and in small. He is with you always. There is no better best friend then God.

The second blog entry will focus on the family of God, how we all are a part of His family and the relationship we are to have with our fellow Christians.

The final entry will discuss our relationship with God as God. How He is not just our God but the true living God of the World. We must trust in Him and realize all of His power and the beauty of His love and compassion. Knowing this will help us bring others to Him so they can be saved.

I am hoping that this series helps others get a better understanding of the importance of a relationship with God.

I hope you all have a blessed week and if there is anyone out there that needs praying please comment.

New Year, New Life with God

Happy New Year everyone!

It is a New Year that means for many it’s a new opportunity to change their lives. We hype this time of the year up as if it is magical but in reality many fail in their resolutions. I stopped doing New Year’s resolutions as I always failed them and it made the New Year very stressful. They’re just not for me, if they are for you then great, I wish you luck and I’ll be praying for you.

Many may mock you but it is because they’re stuck in their ways and wish they could change.

The truth is though, you all out there can be successful in change, even the ones that scoff and mock. Just because you failed in the past doesn’t mean you will fail today.

The best first step is to go to God.

With God He can make all things new. I’ve seen memes where they say, “You don’t need a new year just a Monday.”

Well with God you don’t need a new year or a Monday; you just need a new moment.

Right now everything can change for you.

My entire life has been different since I started having a relationship with God.

I have seen change in myself and others around me, I have seen miracles both small and big. When you give your life to Christ, you will see how God will take care of you.

God has taken care of my wife and I in so many ways, I wish I could list them all here today. I should be writing more about the ways God has effected my life in order to show the love of God and His wondrous works.

Well, would look at that, maybe I do have a New Year’s resolution.

But I digress.

Please pledge your life to Christ today.

If you have fallen away, recommit your life to Christ today.

Don’t just start a new year, don’t just start a new week, start your new life today.

Have a blessed week,
Chris

Here are three great Bible verses for you………….today.

Philippians 4:13 New King James Version (NKJV)
13 I can do all things through [a]Christ who strengthens me.

2 Peter 3:9
9 The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.

Deuteronomy 31:6
6 Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”

Thanksgiving

It’s Thanksgiving time, a perfect time to reflect and be thankful for what God has given us, family, love, finances, forgiveness, salvation, so many things.

Take the time and think about it and pretty much everything you have can be credited to the Lord.

The blessings from God I have received are endless, from my family, the good times and bad, He is always there to provide for my wife and I.

Thank you God.

Have a blessed week,
Chris

Two Year Wedding Anniversary

Two years ago today I married my wife Jane.

Meeting Jane changed my life, we were connected to each other from the beginning and shared so much in common, we fell in love almost right away.

However one big thing we did not have in common was our belief in God. I was always a believer while Jane was agnostic.

I had many discussions with her about it that led nowhere. I was frustrated, I felt like I needed to save her.

But the truth was God needed to save us both. While my belief was strong, my actions and the way I lived my life was not the way God would want.

I decided to get closer to Christ, however I didn’t realize God was working his way into Jane’s heart as well.

She came to me one day and asked to go to church, I was shocked. After many services, discussions, bible readings, book readings and many many videos on YouTube. I asked her why she still wasn’t calling herself a Christian.

She looked down and said “Because I don’t feel I am worthy”

I told her, “None of us are.” She smiled and looked up, I  looked down at her and gave her a hug.

She accepted Christ that day.

When she did her smile lit up the room. It was one of the happiest moments of my life. When she offered her heart to Jesus, He took it, like He always will to anyone who asks.

God was there for us, holding us together through all of our ups, downs, the losses, the pain and He was there to celebrate all the joyous moments in our life.

When it came time for the wedding we really stressed out about it. I will say my wife did an amazing job finding high quality items for really good prices. She did tremendous.

Our church was there for us too, we were going back and forth on locations, every venue seemed to be to expensive or just wouldn’t fit.

After Church one Sunday our Pastor looked at us and said, “Why don’t you just have the wedding here?”

Man did that turn out to be a huge relief.

It was the Church’s first wedding and the first time our Pastor officiated one (I think the Pastor’s Mother was just as excited as we were).

A lot of people helped us along the way and I thank all of you.

Most importantly thank you God, Who helped us and continues to do so each and every day.

The wedding was beautiful and we loved every moment of it.

But of course we look forward to another wedding, as do many believers. The marriage of Christ and His Believers.

That will truly be the greatest day in all of our lives.

Have a Blessed Week,
Chris
