Welcome to my blog site and thank you for stopping by. Let me tell you a little about myself.
I’m a teacher/entrepreneur, wife to a wonderful husband and mother to two adult daughters. I also have an American Eskimo dog named Skye. My home is in beautiful Quebec City, Canada.
I love to travel and meet new people and cultures. I am definitely a people person. Reading (both fiction and non-fiction) is also a favorite pastime for me. Another interest I have is learning all about healthy living (food, sports, natural medicine).
I started this blog is to share what I have learned (through reading, traveling, business, life experience, and other people) and to connect with others along the way.
Life is truly for living and living abundantly. The inspiration for my life is Jesus Christ. I give all the credit to Him for this blog and all that I do and accomplish through it. All praise and honor to Him.
Here is what I believe and follow:
God, who is the creator of everything, does not want anyone to perish because he wants to spend all eternity with each one of them. He is a God of emotions and a God of Love. It hurts him deeply to know that so many don’t want to know him. Like a parent who desires a lifelong relationship with his children, God desires a relationship with everyone.
Why Did Jesus Go to the Cross?
Heaven is a place where sin can not exist. Sin has been in the world since the first rebellion. It is part of our nature and by ourselves; we can not pull ourselves out of it. Jesus, who is God in bodily form, chose to come to show us who God is, to personally live a human experience and, most importantly, to stand in the gap for us and pay the price, once and for all, for everyone. in doing this, he was taking our place. So Jesus went to the cross, took the death penalty that we should all rightfully have and did this freely.
The Bible Says:
“if you confess with your lips the Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved” (Romans 10:9)
“For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved”. (Romans 10:33)
“Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” (Mathew 4:17)
Jesus died for my sins, and your sins. So, we must repent of our sins (turn away from them) and choose to follow Jesus, trusting in Him through the blood of his sacrifice to save us.
The Gospel tells us how to live eternally with God in Heaven, but no sin can exist in heaven. Everything is about choice. We are free to choose our eternal destiny; Heaven or Hell – It’s really up to us. And no decision is, in fact, a decision. Indifference is a decision. So, for those who chose not to believe in and follow Jesus as the only path to heaven: We must repent and turn to him
“I am the Way, the Truth and the Life” – Jesus
The only other option available is Hell. Yes, Hell is a real physical place, just as Heaven is. Both are destinations and places of habitation. Hell, which was reserved for Satan and his demons, is the only place we can go if we reject Jesus.
Here is a prayer that you can say in private to your heavenly Father to set yourself on the path to Eternal Life with God.
Lord Jesus, for so long I’ve kept you out of my life. I know that I am a sinner and that I cannot save myself. I repent of my sins and leave them behind. No longer will I close the door when I hear you knocking. By faith, I thankfully receive your gift of salvation and repent of my sins. I am ready to trust you as my Lord and Savior. Thank you, Lord Jesus, for coming to earth. I believe you are the Son of God who died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead on the third day. Thank you for bearing my sins and giving me the gift of eternal life. I believe your words are true. Come into my heart, Lord Jesus, and be my Savior. Amen.
Then, repent of your sins and follow him.
