Salvation is a gift
Salvation is a gift that is made available to those who repent, believe and confess that Jesus is Lord and that He died and rose from the dead to save mankind (Acts 16:31; Romans 10:9-10). This gift cannot be earned through good deeds or by simply being "good" (Ephesians 2:8; 1 Timothy 1:9). It is a matter of faith (acting out on what you believe according to God's Word concerning salvation).
If you have come here looking for a change in your life, if you have come seeking a peace that is found only through a personal relationship with a loving God, then you are at the right place. God is ready and willing to help you—right now, and right where you are.
Pray this prayer:
Heavenly Father, I come to You in the Name of Jesus. Your Word says, "Whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved" (Acts 2:21). I am calling on You. I pray and ask Jesus to come into my heart and be Lord over my life according to Romans 10:9-10. "If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." I do that now. I confess that Jesus is Lord, and I believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead.

Two powerful forces often not used in the spiritual battle we all face daily. Praise and thanksgiving. Praise is a powerful force in battle. It not only gives God the glory He deserves, but it strengthens your faith and gives you a closer relationship with God. It also lets your enemy know, you are trusting in the One Who is worthy.
A thankful heart is something we should learn to practice all the time. In all things give thanks. Not thankful for bad things when they happen, but give thanks because it could have been worse, so be thankful that even when bad things happen, He is with you to help, protect, comfort and guide you. Be thankful for the home you live in, your family, food, your car, the sunshine and the rain, be thankful for the little things. Look at other people and realize how thankful you should be.
Thank God for the things you have and praise Him for all He has done and is doing for you, and He will give you more. Grumble and complain and you will get nothing more and maybe lose what you have.
Gossip is as evil and murder. Complaining is as a cancer in your bones.
Praise and giving of thanks will build you up spiritually and in every area of your life. Walk in love toward others, and honor God. He has good things in store for you and He wants to bless you more than you want Him to bless you. But you must obey His commandments, which is to love God and love others, and you will be amazed at the good things that start coming your way.
There is none like our God; great and mighty is He. Full of goodness and mercy. God is Love, therefore Love is God.
God is able and willing to help those who call upon Him in faith
They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint. God can and is willing to make a way when there seems to be no way. He is Almighty and can open doors that no man can shut, He can shut doors that no man can open.
I was told I have fibromyalgia, I am in constant pain, with stiffness, and sleep disorder. I also have PTSD. I have been married to a wonderful man for 3 years now. We are best friends, our marriage is heaven on earth. He loves me unconditionally. I love him with all my heart.
