That is the reason I wanted to write What Every Girl Should Know
so that as you go through the course you may understand beyond a shadow of a
doubt what this life is really all about!
know each one of you personally, but I already know something about you
that, you ask? Well, I know that you have
been created by Gods own Hand and that He has a very
in mind for you. Isnt that
great?! The Creator of the universe has a
plan for you and for me. That has never
ceased to blow my mind. When I was younger, I remember people telling me how special
I was to God and how much He loved me. I used
to wonder why I was so special to Him
was I put here on earth to do? How could
someone like me be special in His eyes? For
the answers I needed, I had to turn to the Lord Jesus Christ who was simply waiting for me
"This is real love. It is not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins." ~1 John 4:10
"For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him, shall not perish, but have eternal life." ~John 3:16
"That if you confess with your mouth, Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved." ~Romans 10:9
"[God] has saved us and called us to a holy life not because of anything we have done but because of His own purpose and grace." ~2 Timothy 1:9a
Here were the answers that the Lord knew I needed! I could see what He wanted from me. He had chosen to love me even before the world began, but not because He thought that I was a wonderful person. He knew how wicked and sinful I could be and He chose to love me anyway! But you see, there was a problem My sin was going to separate me from spending eternity with God. The sins I had committed deserved death (Romans 6:23). I would have been eternally doomed had God not sent His Son Jesus to live a sinless life here on earth. He died in my place on the cross and rose again on the third day! All He asked of me was to confess Jesus as Lord, believe He is the Son of God, and then I would be saved!
So thats just what I did! I asked Jesus to come live inside of me and to forgive me of my sins. He did exactly what He said He would and I have never been the same! Now my reason for living is not to acquire all the things this world has to offer In the end, these earthly treasures will fade away. Thats why Im striving to live a holy life that pleases the holy God who loves me. When my life here on earth is over, I will just be starting my life in Heaven with Jesus! I long to hear Him say, Well done, good and faithful servant.
Now, what about you? Do you have a reason to live? Have you stopped to think about where you will be spending eternity? You know, God loves you, too Hes sitting with His arms wide open, waiting to accept you into His family if youll just believe and accept Him into your heart! Jesus Christ will make all the difference in the world to you!
If you ever have any questions you'd like to ask me, please feel free to drop me a line! I'm praying for you...even though I don't know your name.
You're special to Jesus...and that makes you special to me!!
