God Loves Me

I’m so blessed!!

God has been so good to me!!

God takes care of me!!

All these statements are true! I have seen each one of the these statements play out in my life over the last year. But through it all, my favorite thing is to know that God loves me.

God loves me.

No matter who you are. No matter where you are. No matter what you have done, you too can say “God loves me!”

Growing up in a Christian home, church and even a Christian school, I learned at a young age that God loves me. Throughout the years, it almost became an afterthought just knowing that God loves me.

I’ve been able to put on a show throughout the years of acting and talking in such a way to say that I love God but there were many times that my heart and spirit weren’t really in doing the Christian life. It was so habitual for me that I didn’t know how to live any other way.

I knew God loved me so much that He sent His Son to die on the cross, shed His blood, be buried and rise again so that I could be saved.

I know that God has shown His love to me over and over again throughout the years by taking care of me in ways that I could have never imagined. But many times I just brushed it aside with the thoughts of coincidence or even confidence in myself instead of the compassion and love of God.

Over the last year, I have seen God work in my life and my family’s life in a way that only proves He loves us.

It’s been a long time since I have shared anything here on the blog or even my podcast but I have a spark, a small fire that once again is burning in my soul to be a witness and a voice for God. I may not be a preacher or work on staff for a church, but I know that I can still tell others about the love of God and what He has done in my life!

So I’m going to get back to writing and sharing how God has blessed me, how God has spoken to me so that I can be a blessing to even just one person!

“And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath enabled me, for that he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry;”
‭‭1 Timothy‬ ‭1:12‬ ‭KJV‬‬

Only Believe

“Be not afraid, only believe.”

If you stop and think about this phrase, you will realize how simple it is to understand but how hard it is to put into action.

We see this phrase in Mark 5:36. In this passage, we find the story of the woman healed from the issue of blood and the story of Jairus’s daughter being raised back to life.

At the time that this statement was spoken by Christ, He was telling Jairus that his daughter wasn’t dead but only sleeping. Jairus was told “Be not afraid, only believe.”

I saw this phrase in the morning service this past Sunday and I have thought about extensively and how it applies to my life.

Faith is so hard to act on. Faith is tough to comprehend sometimes. Faith seems impossible to have but without it, it’s impossible to please Christ.

The past few weeks have been some tough weeks for me spiritually, especially when it comes to my faith in Christ. I’ve been afraid. I’ve worried. I’ve stressed. I’ve been unsure.

But I saw those words and I felt like Christ was talking to me saying, “Caleb, Be not afraid, only believe.”

Any problems I’m facing, I know I can’t be afraid, I just need to believe.

Whatever you are facing in your life, just remember “Be not afraid, only believe.”

Remember God is in control of everything. He already knows what is going to happen tomorrow, next week, next month, or next year. Nothing takes God by surprise!

Have faith! Exercise faith!

BE NOT AFRAID, ONLY BELIEVE!!
