Real Happiness Matthew 11:28-30 “Random Thoughts and Ramblings for My LORD Jesus Christ – by Jerry May 12, 2014

In Matthew 11:20-24 Jesus talks and denounces the cities which most of His miracles had been performed in and they didn’t repent. What are we as a nation in for?? We as a nation say it’s okay to abort or kill babies because the would be parent/parents want to pursue their career or they just aren’t ready for children. We as a nation are supposed to say that it is okay for gay couple to be married? We have strayed o far from the path of our beginning that judgment is going to be poured out on us, too.

We want to be entertained. We don’t want to be bothered with Jesus. Why?

Because we think that we aren’t going to get to do all of the fun stuff.

But the God that I serve means so much more to me than all of the supposedly fun stuff that I’m “missing out on.”

The cares of this world and the pleasures of this world are not worth turning my back on God, anymore. It took me some years to come to the realization that God is enough for me but now that I’m there I wouldn’t trade the journey for anything.

Also, in Matthew 11:28-30 Jesus tells us that He will give us rest if we will take His yoke upon us and learn from Him for He is gentle and humble in heart. Jesus is the example for us so I think that is the way Jesus wants for us to be. His yoke is easy and His burden is light. I have learned that Jesus’ yoke is easy and His burden is light and that we, as followers of Christ, enjoy.

The world seeks all of the things that Jesus promises His followers through worldly ways but I know that when I was lost and I thought, “If I just had this or that then I would be happy.” But once I got whatever “it” happened to be then I learned that the dream of having what I wanted was always better than the reality and that worldly things are never enough.

Jesus is more than enough. Jesus is the only One that can give us peace and lasting happiness.

This blog is for anyone who wants to know more about Jesus and His love and how faith in Him plays out in real life application. Hello, we are Jerry and Angela and we are two fools for Christ. We have decided to make our lives totally surrendered to Jesus in response to His love and His gift of salvation. We are in our early 40′s and we have two children together and [Angela has] an older daughter that is now an adult. We have been married to each other for going on ten years. We surrendered our lives to the Lord together in 2010 and have been growing in that relationship with Him and each other since that time. We both accepted salvation and made professions of faith earlier in our lives, but did not make Him Lord and Savior until 2010. At that time we realized that trying to walk in our own strength and our own ways was useless and empty and had led us to another rock bottom experience. We humbly turned our lives over to Jesus and have been seeking Him with all that we are ever since. That does not mean that we have become perfect. That does not mean that we have not sinned again. That does not mean that we have not had trouble or trials or storms since that time. What this means is that we are growing, we are learning, we are becoming more loving and compassionate and forgiving. We want to share our faith with our readers. We want to share our growth process and transformation with you. We wish to encourage you and lift you.
