    God’s will for All believers. Read, John 7:17. I can’t figure it out. Proverbs 3:5&6. If you think It’s impossible, Luke 18:27. Nobody loves me, John 3:16&17. I can’t forgive myself, Romans 8:1. Anything you are feeling God have an answer, genuine answer for you. A time for everything, Ecclesiastes 3:1-8, but you can read on. May your questions be answered and your journey with God be Spiritfilled, Safe, Healthy, GodBless, and Happy. Hope these scriptures aide you into God’s Kingdom. Isaiah 40:3, Galatians 6:9. Pray and ask God to guide you in His Footsteps. Have doubts? Read Hebrews 11:6 God never asks us to believe without giving us sufficient evidence on which to base our Faith. However, all possibility of doubt will never be removed. Our Faith must rest on evidence, not demonstrated fact, for then it would no longer be Faith. Those who want to doubt will always find a reason or reasons to do so. Those who want to believe will always have ample evidence for their faith. Information of God is never enough, keep searching His words in the Bible. Please read and share with others. God speak to those who take time to listen, and He listens to those who take time to Pray. A Prayer can change the impossible. Pray not because you need something but because YOU have a lot to thank God for. Dear Lord you know your daughter Jackie, she loves you, into your hands I place all her worries, cares,and troubles. Into your wisdom I place her path, her direction, and her goals. Into your love I place her soul, and her life in Jesus Name, Amen! Walk with the King and be a Blessing Sister Jackie (*√*)
