From darkness into the Kingdom of the Beloved Son.
When I go through trials, I am brought to mind where I came from. Out of darkness.
After yesterday seeming to overwhelm me, I find without any merit to myself, today, is in the presence of God's Light.
He is there, His light shining on me, lifting me on my feet to be back on the Rock again, to continue on.
I am put in remembrance of what the Lord brought me out of, and that I have been by Him, translated from a life that was darkness, now, into the Kingdom of His beloved Son.
Once again, aware of what it is that my life has come out from.
What a precious gift I have been given in God's Son, Jesus. A precious gift that we have been given in Him.
It has been going from a life of darkness into one of living in the Light of God's Son. It is being translated from one place, into the other. His Kingdom.
His precious promises are true. His love endures forever. He is there with us always.
My life and the clouds I experience at times, don't change that. They do not change His love. The do not change His Kingdom. They do not altar what is forever. What is Eternal.
I feel burdens and hardships at times. But, I have something now in my life that is greater than what I feel. Greater than my trials or what I go through. It is Jesus Christ my Lord. His life. Truly what is real in my life. His life is truly my life.
If you have lived a life without knowing Him, and find yourself in a place you don't know how to get out of, aware that you are sinking and in darkness, weighted down by burdens. If you have become overwhelmed by hopelessness of what has been in your life. ..there is a hope that is a breath and moment away.
You can ask Jesus Christ into your life, and know that you are at that moment, translated. Out of darkness, into the Kingdom of God's beloved Son.
Though you may not realize in your feelings at the moment, as you begin to seek Him with all of your heart, and hold on to Him, you will find that you have come out of one place and are now planted in another.
And in this place, under the Light of God's dear Son, you can grow, and feel the warmth of His Kingdom, and Eternal Kingdom, on you. Translated out of darkness into the Kingdom of God's beloved Son. His warmth of love on you will, like the Sun on a plant, cause you to begin to grow.
We have seasons,undergo things in life, but we have a far greater hope in Jesus. We are not carrying our burdens alone.
The Lord Who loves and saved us, carries them with us.
And when the load seems to heavy to bear, I can feel Him lift them.
There is healing for your wounds and sorrows, tears are washed away. Troubles can be laid down, He says His yoke is not heavy, and His burden is light.
We carry nothing alone.
We have truly been translated into a new Kingdom. One of life and not death.
Just ask Him into your life today. Repent of your sins, the best you can, turn from our old ways of following death, and come and follow Jesus.
I assure you, Jesus loves you.
No matter what things look like, no matter what you go through. No matter what you think of yourself or what others think of you, no matter what goes through your mind, or what you think you hear, or where you have been, or what you have done, or what you have heard, Jesus cares about you and loves you, dearly.
Always, to the best of your ability, hold on to the Lord Jesus, and follow Him. And when you think your fingers will slip, call on His Name and you will find, He is true, He will never leave you or forsake you. He is there with you.
You can know, and be assured, that He very much loves you.
