All About GOD
We received a long, broken translation email from a woman in China who just received Christ. She needed encouragement as she spoke of her departed husband and thoughts of suicide. Her final line in the email was: “I will wait for about 24 hours. After that, I will think God accept my idea. Then I can go to the heaven to meet him...”
Shea wrote a beautiful email response, taking the time to encourage her and strengthen her with scripture. Here’s her last response:
“Dear sir. Thank you write back to me....If you are representing God, I will say thank you, God. And thank you for all the advices and helps from you -- you didn't make fun of me, which makes me moved....... [As to the suicide] I will not do that now, OK.”
My name is Scott and I live in Nevada. I’m a new born-again Christian 3 months. Thanks for your awesome devotion.
Thank you for such an encouraging website. I am the administrator of a Pre-12 Christian school and you share the cry of my heart for my students. KB (Indiana)
I don't know what to say. I was so bad, but I just realize now that God knows me since I came to this world. I’m so amazed by his love, I feel something extraordinary now. I want to know him more, and live for him. I want to know Jesus, how great and Wonderful He is. I already love him. God bless you, Teshale.
I just wanted to let you know that through your site I have accepted Jesus Christ as the lord of my life. I feel better, far from hell as it were. I just wanted to thank you for your site and let you know that I am now saved. --S.
I just wanted to say first of all thank you for having this site up because I know God was directing me here.
I've always grown up in the church, always been a believer, until I went to college last year and had a bad year, I thought I had recommitted my life after that year, but I realized I didn't. On top of that, I broke a promise I had with God, to stay a virgin till marriage and I broke that just recently. I know God was hurt and so was I. But I also know God used this to teach me a lesson. I wish the price had not been so big, but because of this price and by the blood of Christ, I AM forgiven! I believe that with ALL my heart.
I know that through my experience, I will become a better person and a better servant of God. Also through this experience, I realize that I can impact others because I have now been there, done that, and I pray I can prevent anyone else I know from making the same mistake I made. Again, I want to thank you for having a place for me to turn to so I may be reminded of the grace and mercy of God.
“Father, I know that I have broken your laws and my sins have separated me from you. I am truly sorry, and now I want to turn away from my past sinful life toward you. Please forgive me, and help me avoid sinning again. I believe that your son, Jesus Christ died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead, is alive, and hears my prayer. I invite Jesus to become the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward. Please send your Holy Spirit to help me obey You, and to do Your will for the rest of my life. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.”
I am now a born again Christian. Thank you so much.
Blessings to you! I just love God!!! Nicholas (Australia)
I just wanted to say thank you!!! I used this website as a tool to help lead a co-worker to Christ. She is a big "researcher" and it was much easier for her to surf this site than to "surf" the Bible. As she grows in Christ, she will become more familiar with the Bible, but this site is a wonderful way to help her get acquainted with the scriptures. You have a wonderful ministry........keep up the good work! --in Him, Jennifer
I've done the same sin more than once and I thought God wouldn't want me anymore and I was so ashamed of myself for giving up a chance to spend the rest of my life in heaven with the Lord because I couldn't stop doing what I knew was wrong.
I would like to thank you because tonight I got on my knees and asked God to forgive me and I cried for awhile, but I felt a calm come over me like someone was holding me and saying that's allright, we all make mistakes...Thank you...I've been living with this bad feeling inside so long. It feel's so wonderful to have the burden lifted and be back on the right tract in Jesus name...Thank you for the wonderful site...
I am writing from Baghdad, Iraq. Your website Bible extract regarding Fruit of the Spirit was a powerful healer for me tonight. I just wanted you to know that God used your website to go from my brother's Google search in Greensboro, NC, to the Country of Iraq and hit me in east Baghdad with what HE wanted me to know about my situation. The specifics are unimportant, but you people should know that you are soldily in the Path of Righteousness, and you now have fervent prayer support, particularly every Tuesday, particularly from a guy with my last name in East Greenwich, Rhode Island, another guy in Greensboro, and a third guy, me, temporarily in Baghdad, Iraq. --CPT serving in Iraq.
I am a paranoid schizophenic and have just come out of a prison for the mentally ill. I was depressed and was looking at suicide help sites when i stumbled upon one about physical death and spiritual afterlife. I read about how god loves me no matter how i had sinned in the past and felt elated and renewed. I realized i was about to make a huge mistake. I searched the web for information on becoming a christian and found your site. I made the decision to turn to jesus, renewed my faith, found my childhood bible and have started my new life. --G. (Australia)
Yes, I have become a Christian today...now I just need to follow the additional steps. Thank you for this website...I know that I am not alone in all this confusion and that the answers are there for the seeking... --Denise
Yes, I became a Christian today. Thanks be to God. Thank you.
Your site is powerful. This site can do nothing but touch *EVERY* person who reads this.
Hello! I stumbled upon your website this morning looking for information about Messianic Jews after a class discussion. I was amazed at how much easy to follow information is on your pages! Thanks for restoring my faith in my Lord and Savior - Christ Jesus. --Margaret
Thank you for this uplifting article on Christianity. I truly believe that tonight after reading the prayer 3 times and really trying to let it sink deep into my heart, I am truly convinced that Jesus is my Lord and Savior. Thank you again for being an instrument in my salvation. "Praise Jesus for he is our Lord and Savior." --P.
Jesus has become my Savior and I will walk with him the rest of my days and throughout Eternity. He will teach me the ways of God and I will always be safe with him as my guide. Many Blessings to all of you. --J.M.
I have decide to rededicate my life to the lord. I need your guidance and support to help walk the righteous path in the lord. Thanks for the help and motivation.
I just want to thank you for the work that you've done on your site. God has definitely blessed it. I showed one of your articles to my friend who is a pro-darwinist and he was speechless. I know that God is planting a seed in him and that he used your site to do it. Again, Thank you. --Taylor
Thanks for all your words of support. I'm 18 yrs old. I grew up in a christian surrounding. Lately I kind of got off the right track. Your words of encouragement and sinner's prayer just made me come back to my senses. I miss giving the LORD my entire life to lead me and guide me.
It helps me to come closer to God. Thank you. And I thanks for my friend that she give this web sight to me. God bless you guys.
Hello, I just want to say that I REALLY enjoy this website. I found it to be extremely informative, and it has honestly helped me renew my faith as a Christian. To be completely honest with you I think that I learned more about faith, the Holy Bible, and Christianity than I ever learned while attending Catholic church and CCD as a kid. Maybe thats because I didn't take church, and CCD too seriously as a kid, and basically just went to make my mother and the rest of my family happy. I really feel informed about things now. I found information about various things that I have been thinking about for a long time, but could never find the right people or sources to help with the solution(s).
Anyway, let me tell you how I happened to stumble upon the website. I am currently attending college night courses, and my English teacher asked the class to start keeping a journal, and to write about various topics that she picks. Well, the first topic she happened to pick was "Why Am I Here?". I tried several attempts on giving an honest explanation of why I believe I am here but the problem I had was that I really wasn't sure. So, out of comic frustration I went online, opened up yahoo or google.com and typed "Why Am I Here?" in the search engine, and I happened to come across www.why-am-i-here.com. After reading through a few pages of the site, I felt like I struck oil. No kidding, it really helped me think about things in a new way, under a different light.
Anyway, I just want to say that I think this site, and all of the links are incredible sources of information. I especially like how it's all delivered. There is no force feeding opinions here. Just straight up facts of info, to take or leave. Very good stuff. --Joe
This site was such an answer to my prayers! It's exactly what I needed, having recently accepted Christ. Thanks and I'm already feeling so much support after having read some of the articles! --Mona
I gave my life to Jesus today and I want to become a christian and follow in the LORD'S footsteps. Thank you for such a beautiful website.
I just wanted to say thanks for your work on this great site. I'm already a believer, accepting Christ in early 2000, but I'm getting ready to go on vacation and visit several other members of my family who have not. I'll be using the Roman Road section to help them along this path over the weekend. --Rich
I have enjoyed your web site. It has been a blessing, has opened my eyes to the truth about the bible and its origins. I'm going to tell others about your site. May God bless you all greatly, and keep you in perfect peace, and fill your joy too over flowing.
Hi, I accepted Jesus as my savior today. I realize that I cannot live this life alone without him. He is far more worthy of praise than I have been giving. He blesses me continually and I have taken his love for granted. Never again.
I would just like to thank you for your web site. It has helped me very much to rededicate my life to Christ and again I just want to say thanks!
I'm already a Christian and also a seeker whose let himself be overcome by his doubts and weakened and despaired under atheist arguments. I want to thank you for helping me with such clear, objective, and logical explanations in all matters. Thank you very much!!!
I like your website. It was very helpful in my search for salvation.
I accepted Jesus Christ into my life and I have committed countless sins, but I am here today to start my new life with Jesus Christ and God… and for me to be free at last and to be a good person.
I have prayed for forgiveness and given my life to GOD today. I know I am a sinner and not worthy.
I don't know why something just told me to repent. I have tears in my eyes. Please pray for me -- my parents raised me in church, but it was so strict that I never really liked church. Now I have a family. My 6 year old daughter loves church and it reminds me of a time when I loved church. I plan to take my entire family to church now and praise God. Thank you.
I started attending church with my family recently but can't seem to make the leap to Christianity - I have been what I call agnostic for most of my life. Any suggestions?...
I received the book yesterday - thank you. I started it last night. I am feeling much more peaceful these days about taking a leap - I still have a few emotional hurdles to jump over but I'm getting there. Definitely closer...
I am great. I took the leap - Christmas Eve it all seemed to come together - thank you for your support. --S.
Thank you very much for replying and offering your help to me. I have had such a struggle. Some may call it a rebellion - but even as I read everything you wrote - I get tears in my eyes, because I really want to believe.
I read the prayer you suggested and I will keep trying. I hope he hears me and can somehow help me find my way. Thank you so much for listening to me and helping me. People like you who understand that sometimes it's hard for people to believe makes me want to believe even more. Thank you for your patience and your kind words.
THANK YOU for helping HIM, come back into my life. In my own research delving into a someone close to me that has joined the cult of Jehovah Witnesses, MY own faith has not only been restored, but I FEEL like a changed person.
I am well on my way to finally having Jesus back in my life. I didn't know how much I missed HIM, until He was almost gone.
God Bless you for this wonderful website. I would of never been able to come this far....yet I am still only beginning...
I came to your site to research a project i had on the Islam. Your site was extremely informative and helpful. After reviewing and finding the information i needed, i also looked into your testimony section on basic Christian beliefs. I was very pleased to see i had stumbled upon on of the few sites that actually proclaims the Word of God. I just wanted to say how happy i was to find your site. --Meghan
