Rescued

Rescued!

Jesus Did It!

By: Nancy Davis

I am an Artist and Writer.  As a survivor of  many storms in life,  I have learned to appreciate every day.  How precious it is to have a true friend.  I lived the first part of my life without GOD and can tell you from my heart that  with  HIM, is the only way to reach your true, full potential as a human being.  There are spiritual secrets that you can not obtain without a friendship with the ONE True GOD.


I have the privilege of being married to my very best friend and true soul mate.  We have six wonderful children to love.  Being a mom is the most rewarding role in my life.  The children are my friends, my challenge, my priority, my joy.  Every day is like a gift to me.  

I think that I appreciate life soooo much because it hasn't always been great.  It's been a bumpy road for me along the way.

I am a survivor. Many circumstances throughout my life have left me experiencing the sting of abuse.  At times, still being able to breathe.... was success.  Here is something about the path that has led me to this place.

I was completely lonely by the time I reached adolescence.  I felt a deep sense of some supernatural force that could be grasped. I wanted to figure out life and be in control.  Most of all... I wanted to feel loved.

I fell into the wrong kind of lifestyle.  The "wild kind" that parents fear most of all. I was also involved with astrology, tarot cards, séances, etc.  All this, in search of filling a void in my life.  I found power in these things and yet I still felt emptiness.

When I was 18, a remarkable experience happened in my life. Through it, I came to the realization that GOD is Real.  Up until that time, I had sincerely believed that GOD, satan, and all religious ideas were fictitious. Made up. Man made.  

I discovered that there IS a supernatural power . . . GOD.  HE is not to be grasped... rather, HE needs for us to humble ourselves enough for HIM to grasp us.   I learned that GOD truly loves me...beyond my understanding.

Out of simple faith, I sincerely prayed for the very first time.

"JESUS... I was told that YOU love me. That you Love me so much that you died to make a way that I could go to Heaven. If that is true... I want to follow YOU.  I know that I need your forgiveness in my life.  I want YOU to be my LORD.  Please show me the Way to go."

From that day on, HE has proven Himself to me over and over again. HE completely changed my heart and attitude.  

It is as though we have this emptiness in our Spirit at birth. We all search in our own directions...needing to fill it in order to feel complete.

There is only ONE thing that will fill that void.. that emptiness in us. It is GOD Himself.  When we are willing to follow HIM... to give Him respect in our lives, HE will give us true fulfillment.  He actually comes in and dwells with our Spirit, to guide, comfort, direct and protect us.

I have experienced many hardships, physically, spiritually and  emotionally.... yet in my darkest hours, I have NEVER been left alone.  GOD has made HIS presence known to me.  HE has also provided the love and support of family and some very close friends.  

Through all of these things, never did I feel that GOD had left me.  Rather... HE carried me in those times.

I know that even when death comes my way, in HIS Loving Arms, I will remain for Eternity. What comfort is found in the Truth of GOD.  It requires simple FAITH

How many people exercise even MORE faith to believe that we exist as the result of an accidental BOOM?

I would never want to experience life without GOD.  I would be missing out on so much. Many people are just "winging it" through life... hoping that it all comes out okay. 

We don't need to just "hope."  We can KNOW. 

Christianity is not a "crutch."  It's a freedom and peace that goes beyond our human understanding.  It's an investment in our future because Life is not just about what is here on earth.  

We spend so much time preparing for our future.  We think about and plan our education, our career, our finances, our children's education, our retirement.  We need to invest time in our eternity.  Our lives don't end with death.  Shouldn't we at least be thinking about that part of our future?

Choosing to follow GOD, doesn't guarantee that your life will then be trouble free.  We are now living in a sin stricken world.  HE does promise us that HE will NEVER leave us once we have given our heart to HIM.

GOD doesn't make His Love tricky or confusing. You don't need to know a certain language, be a certain age, walk a certain way or go to a certain church.  In fact, what I am speaking of has nothing to do with "church."  ("Church" is just a group of people choosing to get together).

All that GOD requires of us is to come to Him in honesty and respect.  HE wants us to realize that we do not measure up to Holiness on our own.   We need His Grace and  Forgiveness. 

He wants us to give HIM consideration, priority and honor with our hearts.  Just as any parent would want of their children. This decision leads to personal fulfillment and freedom that we cannot experience any other way.

GOD reaches into our deepest needs.  There is nothing too complicated for HIM to break through.  He already knows where we are and what we have done.  We come to Him, as we are.

This is one of God's messages to us from the Bible:

“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.  If we claim we have not sinned, we make Him out to be a liar and His Word has no place in us.”   1 John 1:9-10 

One of the most important ways to grow spiritually is through Bible Study.  Reading God's Word is strengthening and studying scripture is powerful.  Talk to Him.  He wants to hear from us.  Good and Bad.  HE will listen and HE cares.

I have so much to Thank GOD for.

~~ THANK YOU ~~ THANK YOU ~~ THANK YOU ~~

There is a scripture that I consider to be most descriptive of my life now.  It is this:

“Praise be to GOD and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the GOD of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from GOD.”  II Corinthians 1:12

Dear Reader - are you at peace with God?  If not, you can be.  Do you know what awaits you when you die?  You can have the assurance from God that heaven will be your home, if you would like to be certain.  Either Jesus Christ died for your sins, or He didn't (He did!).  Are you prepared to stand before God on the Judgment Day and tell Him that you didn't need the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the Cross to have your sins forgiven and get in right-standing with God?  We plead with you ... please don't make such a tragic mistake.

To get to know God; to be at peace with God; to have your sins forgiven; to make certain heaven will be your home for eternity; to make certain that you are in right-standing with God right now ... please click here to help understand the importance of being reconciled to God.  What you do about being reconciled to God will determine where you will spend eternity, precious one.  Your decision to be reconciled to God is the most important decision you'll ever make in this life.
