I started this blog, Voice of Truth Ministry in February 2012 with the first post The reason this ministry got started because I couldn't contain how I felt any more. I had to express at that time the following points, and it holds true today namely:
- No matter where we are in life, God cares about us and we are part of His plan,
- Even though we may be in an uncomfortable situation, perhaps even hopeless, God can be our strength and our salvation if we only reach out to Him in prayer and through His Word,
- Don't be afraid. The #1 most stated commandment in the Bible is "Fear Not", mentioned 27 times. Even when we have to face our demons, God will forgive and be with us if we only ask, and finally,
- Do the next right thing. Make good, wholesome choices that support love, peace, forgiveness, understanding, healthy living, brotherhood and family.
My question is, am I writing this for others or for me? I can see now that's it's for both reasons, because my points aren't intuitive to the average Joe or Jill, and they sure haven't been to me. Most of us aren't raised knowing God loves us and actually cares about our situations. Sometimes we're told, but that's not enough. This is something we must hear from others who've been there, and learn on our own, in our own time.
