Tired of Trying to Do It Yourself?



"And the LORD, He is it that doth go before thee; he will be with thee, he will not fail thee, neither forsake thee:  fear not, neither be dismayed."

Deuteronomy 31:8

That promise is just as near as accepting Jesus Christ as your savior. That promise is just as near as surrendering your life to Christ.  

He gets to be the leader, the boss, the Lord.  You get to be saved from Hell, saved from your sins, saved from yourself, and loved beyond anything you can imagine. 

So, what do you do?

Accept Jesus as the Son of God, you must also truly believe that He is who He said He is and can do what He said He would do.  I invite you to read the book of John in the Holy Bible.  You can get to know who Jesus is and what that means to you.

  7. What a great image: DXY!! Can't save ourselves, can we? As a friend of mine used to say, "Thank God for Jesus!"

    I was reading some of your other posts and just joined Swagbucks through your link. Not sure I know how to use it, though--what's the best way to learn about it?

    1. I have just stumbled through learning Swagbucks. I always do the daily crave and poll, daily search and click deal of the day. I let the videos play in a window I'm while I do other things on the computer. It bothered me at first, but frankly, some of the stuff isn't fit to be watched, and it only pays a few bucks. The best way I've found to get Swagbucks is to do the surveys.

      I don't make a lot doing this, but since Christmas time, I have made enough to buy a $25 gift card for my son's birthday. Thank you for signing up under me. My advice is to poke around on the website a bit and see what you find. There are some interesting videos under Watch, too.

      Hugs to you!

    1. Hi Carlie,
      I've finished Genesis, and I'm ready to begin Exodus next. I'm also listening to Isaiah.
