Well, I thought I’d give this blog thing a go and try to share my thoughts, hopes, dreams, loves etc with everyone – might not last too long but we’ll give it a go.
I believe I live a very simple life – married, dad, home owner, brother etc etc. It has been a life full of love, a life that has been tough at times, a life full of wonderful memories, a life that has been challenging at times, a life with unbelievable sadness, a life of amazing joy.
At the age of 15 I made the best decision ever in deciding to follow Jesus and my life has never been the same again.
That decision was simple for me to take in the end – I believed that Jesus loved me, died for me and that if I accepted Him into my life then He would never leave me and that one day when my earthly life was over I would be with Him for all eternity.
Sounds so simple, it is. Now I didn’t understand it or believe it at first but I did finally come to a realisation that God sent His son to this earth to die for me and now 28 years later I still love my Jesus, I serve Him with all the talents and abilities He has given me and I want people to know that He did the same for them.
I may have, in my opinion, a simple life but it hasn’t been easy but I have had my Jesus with me every step of the way and that has been, and always will be amazing.
I can’t imagine what my life would have been like if, at 15, I’d continued to ignore what Jesus had done for me on the cross – my simple life is an amazing life, a life worth living, a life worth sharing.
How would you judge your life, who is walking with you? Consider Jesus – to put it simply, He loves you, never ever forget that.
John 3:16 (ESV English Standard Version)
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
