It is very hard to stay on the road of righteousness with all of the temptations lurking about the face of the earth when you WANT to stay on the right track. But our JESUS was tempted too for the times when He fasted and the evil one bothered Him too. Ask any Christian that loves the Lord , and they will tell you the very same thing. For we take up our crosses to follow JESUS, and sometimes it gets too heavy and JESUS is right there to take the load from you.
Luke 9:23 KJV
23 And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.
For me , having the LORD in my life, to love GOD and His son JESUS is a comfort to my very soul. For this kind of comfort only comes from GOD the creator of all living things here on this planet. All of us who do well and want to see the #Rapture and wait for JESUS, find comfort in this to know we will see the face of GOD and to live with HIM in HIS house..
“Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.”
No more pain, suffering or torments. No one to lie to you and cause harm. Joy fills my heart to know that I will see all of my loved ones who have gone before me I will see again in GODS house. And for those new people I meet, I want them to know the good news as well too, I tell them about the LORD so they can have the same wonderful feelings I do right now because I do care about every soul I met. I wonder if they know the LORD too?
Mark 12:30-31Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
30 and thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. 31 And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.
Many people who love the sin that they are in, will not want to listen to you, but they listen to the evil one instead. For he will lie to people as hard as he can. He was kicked OUT of heaven and he surely does not want ANYONE to go the heaven and be with GOD. This is why many will laugh and call every loving Christian a false rude name because they are lied to and have taken the sinful habit and cling to it. Meanwhile those of us who hate sin press on to be right with GOD , both side are by choice. But who in their true love in their heart for all mankind wants to see anyone suffer for all of eternity, or even while they live here on earth? #Google what it says about #persecution in the Bible. Secular people think that Christians don’t have problems at times, but we do through persecution.
Use your computer , and #GOOGLE all of the scripture you need for comfort and print out and copy what you need to refer to your Bible. Keep your Bible by your bed. I have used the site:
to get these verses to share with you. This way you can click on this site and read about the word no matter where you are on tab, laptop or your phone. Even your TV if you have an # Gamebox to hook it up to.

Still we hold on to the cross for we know that we can trust in the LORD to take what we can not bear any longer. Many times I have called on JESUS for help and he answered me, many, many times! My faith keeps me going. For I do not bare this cross alone, ever! May everyone who reads this post get a blessing and be saved in the name of JESUS! Thank you JESUS!
