In this life, yes I have been blessed in My walk with God. But good times or hard nothing compares to being filled with the loving presence of God's Holy Spirit and being sealed with the redemption of Jesus Christ. From the day we were born its the one thing missing in our souls we were meant to discover. The purpose of this short life is to discover the central answer to life's most important question...Why was I born and what is my purpose?
"God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God's work from beginning to end. So, no eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him. Jesus said, "I tell you the truth, unless you are born again, you cannot see the Kingdom of God. That is why I said that you will die in your sins; for unless you believe that I Am who I claim to be, you will die in your sins. So this is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Whoever places their trust in Jesus Christ has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, because God's wrath remains on them. But you foolish unbeliever, you say you believe that there is one God and that's just fine!" Don't you realize that even the demons believe like you do, but they tremble with fear of their pending doom!
