He Loved me.

This morning a woke up and was unable to return to sleep. It seems I had enough rest. I have been winding down on the final days writing my first book. Break Out - A criminals Journey to Eternal Freedom.

Psalm 68:5-6 [NLT] Father to the fatherless, defender of widows — this is God, whose dwelling is holy. God places the lonely in families; he sets the prisoners free and gives them joy. But he makes the rebellious live in a sun-scorched land.
 

When the Holy Spirit touched me, and I came alive. That sounds like it could be a song. 
Maybe it is. I am unsure. I do know that it is my song. I will always testify, of Gods great love, through His Son Jesus. the power is still flowing through the blood of Jesus. Straight from the throne room of heaven.

I know this book is not just for me, it is for many others. I wrote this book for the hurting and the broken. For those sitting in jail and for those sitting in their mansions. People are broken all over. I see a vision of people, scattered all over the map and they are keeled over weeping in desperate need of a touch from Jesus. I see them reading this book quickly and the Holy Spirit breathing life into their bodies.

In a single heartbeat, the Holy Spirit comes and changes everything. For me, He delivered me from death's door. I was a drug addict, a thief and a liar, and Jesus touched me and totally changed me. I know that the reality of  this seems so broad, but it is aiming right at your heart today. Only Jesus Christ can save a life from hell and destruction. This message of the Kingdom is not just for the poor, its for the rich too.

I know Jesus laid His life down for me. The image you see on the left I found online recently. I remember I was a broken and hurting young man, in need of healing. Desperate for a touch from heaven. I carried the pain. My bones ached. But God intervened like a Father with great power. A Father I needed to cover me and help me. I was alone and dying.

He placed me into a new family, and set me feet on a firm foundation!

Ephesians 1:3-8 [NLT] All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ. Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure. So we praise God for the glorious grace he has poured out on us who belong to his dear Son. He is so rich in kindness and grace that he purchased our freedom with the blood of his Son and forgave our sins. He has showered his kindness on us, along with all wisdom and understanding.

In love with Jesus,
