Faith Works

Greetings My Friends
Have you ever really noticed how many people you meet are depressed, discouraged, and just plain miserable?
A large part of the population leads a life that can be described as mediocre, boring, and generally unhappy.
There are a number of reasons for both of these conditions, and for these two groups to feel the way they do. One of the reasons, is the words they use routinely. They are negative, destructive words. I don't know why, but a very high percentage of these people deny that they are negative. I guess they are so used to it, they can't tell the difference.
Maybe some of these people prayed for something, and didn't receive their answer. Could be lack of faith, praying for the wrong thing, such as something someone else has, a lack of patience, or even not recognizing the answer, because it wasn't what they expected.
Then of course you have the people who lead what I will call lukewarm lives. Neither good nor bad. Many like it that way. They are comfortable that way, because they don't have to worry about being disappointed in ambitions that don't turn out, or for answers to prayer. They are in a sort of prison, of their own making, but at least they get by, so everything is okay.
What do you suppose all of these people have in common? They gave up. They put limits on themselves. They have generally been led by satan, and don't know it. You can be led by satan, even though you commit no crimes or illegal acts of any kind.
satan does not want you to have God in your life. He plants despair, depression, hopelessness, in someone's life so that they will blame God for everything, and fall into his ( satan) hands. He wants you to doubt God, and he gets great enjoyment from your misery.
The answer to freedom is God. Call out to Him and tell Him everything. Ask Him to help you and forgive you. He will. You will have true peace, and be led in a happy life. It is written "cast all your cares, for He cares for you". Take charge of your life and live by faith, and that will make a big difference in the quality of your life. It will amaze you.
Remember Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation

Lord Jesus, I thank you for what you did on the cross for me. Your blood has washed away my sins, by your stripes I was healed, your death and resurrection brought salvation. Please forgive my sins, and come into my heart as my personal Savior. Thank you Lord. Amen.
