Lesson Two:
What Good Am I?

You may think God doesn’t love you. You may think He can never
use you. I thought God would never love me; I just knew He
would pay me back one day. I got married to my husband,
Tim, at the young age of nineteen. I got pregnant: it should be a
joyous time for my husband and me. Well, I thought that if I
loved this child, just when I did, God would take it from me. I had
such a warped belief system of God. I didn’t know who God was.
I was an emotional wreck after that. I thought God could never
use me. My suffering lasted for over eleven years.   

I remember in my lowest time thinking, “Is there really a God?”   So
one day, I said to God, “If you are real, here is my life take it.”

I found out how real He really is. Then I found out that Jesus
suffered for me on the cross so I didn’t have to suffer any
more. I found a relationship with Jesus: He did love me
and forgave me as far as the east is from the west. Tell me,
how far is that? Maybe you have another area in which you
need to hear that God does forgive you as far is the east is
from the west. After hearing that, my whole life turned around.
In the Word, it says when the Son has set you free, you are free
indeed.  Well I am FREE……

I never knew what God’s Name meant and how awesome He
was! He actually knows the number of hairs on each of our heads.  
Matthew 10:30  For someone to know the number of hairs on
your head, He must think you are really special. I found out that
God from the beginning of time knew me and gave me gifts
and talents to be used by Him. Today, I am a Christian counselor;
I am married to a pastor. Who would have thought way back
then, that God would love me and use
me like this.

know Him like you do.  If I died tonight I don’t know where
I would go.  I want to go to Heaven.   

You can do this right now, right here.  

~John 3:16-18

"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son.  
That whosoever believeth on Him should not perish, but have
everlasting life.  For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn
the world; but that the world through Him might be saved. He that
believeth on Him is not condemned, but he that believeth not is
condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the
only begotten Son of God."

Pray this prayer:

Dear Heavenly Father,

I thank you for sending your only Son
to die on the cross for my sins.
Cleanse me and remove all my shame.
I repent and ask you into my heart
to be my Lord and Savior.
In Jesus’ Name,
Amen.
