WHY ARE YOU HERE

People who give thanks

even through sorrows

and hardship

know the Lord.

Jesus is their constant,

their close Friend.

These self-directed ones

chose to turn to Jesus.

They abide in His love daily,

depend on Him for strength,

for joy, for purpose.

They pray,

knowing their vibrant, glowing

connection with Christ

is special to their Savior.

They’re part of a sphere

of believers

who don’t take God

for granted.

They know their purpose

in this life —

To embrace others

as Jesus embraces them.

To bring their friends,

their loved ones

into the light of loving Jesus,

embracing His love that

cannot die,

and living to please only Him.

Then our reward

if we accept it

is eternal life with Christ

our Savior and best Friend.

 

In my Christian novel, THE CASTING OF CROWNS, the heroine, Carissa embodies this same purpose of bringing others into a loving relationship with Jesus.  Follow Carissa and her friends as they wade deeper into the dark, threatening New World Order, seeking to save souls and learning to trust God.

Purchase THE CASTING OF CROWNS on Amazon, Barnes & Noble online, or any online bookseller.      Betsy O. Borchardt

      Hi Barbie,
      I’m glad you still like my posts. About my book, I’ve got a copy here, saved just for you. It’s $14.95. We can meet someplace, maybe the Wautoma library or one of our houses. I will be in touch. Betsy
