Jesus Did It!
HOPELESS AND FILLED WITH GRIEF - NO MORE!
By: Lori MacGregor
One night in September of 1998, as I laid in bed trying to fall asleep, I experienced hopelessness and grief to a degree I couldn't bare! Years of circumstances had caught up with me and all of my failures weighed heavy on my mind and wracked my body with stress!
First and most hurtful was my rocky childhood of not getting along with my family and how it continued to be strained throughout all of my adult life. And secondly there was my failed Hollywood acting dream and with that gone, and me back in my hometown again, I had no plans for an exciting or meaningful future. There was the downward spiraling experience of becoming a New Ager while out in Los Angeles, and how it messed up my mind and brought a darkness to my life that I couldn't shake, even after leaving its false teachings. There was my divorce 10 years back that had broken my heart and turned me sour against love; followed by a string of live-in boyfriends that were not much better to me than my husband. There was the abortion I had in my early 20's that now caused me guilt and sorrow over what I had done to my baby. There was the fact that I didn't want anything in life that hadn't already rejected me, and in some cases, rejected me many times over.
With every area of my life feeling ruined, I prayed an extra prayer that night because I didn't know what else to do. I prayed a prayer of desperation: "God please help me. You just have to help me. I can't take this stress anymore. Everything always turns out so horrible and I have no hope left."
The very second I finished my pleading prayer, theses words came into my mind: "I will take the spirit of trouble from you, but you must put me first in your life." I wasn't sure who said these words to me until a wave of peace swept over my body and completely delivered me from the stress that had been consuming me! Then immediately after that, I felt love, pure love, come pouring into my soul! In that second, I knew it was Jesus! He had heard my desperate prayer and He was answering it!
You see I had grown up on Bible stories and had been taught about the love and miracles of Jesus! There was one more thing Jesus conveyed to me as I lay basking in his amazing love and that was that the Bible is 100% true! As soon as Jesus revealed this to me, I felt convicted and knew that my life had gone repeatedly wrong because I had never read or obeyed the Bible.
The next morning I awoke with a joy and hope that I had never had before and I immediately told God that He would be #1 in my life because I wanted to keep what I had been given - a new lease on life!

A Special Message: http://www.precious-testimonies.com/Exhortations/f-j/HelpingShareTheMessageOfTheCross.htm
Dear Reader - are you at peace with God? If not, you can be. Do you know what awaits you when you die? You can have the assurance from God that heaven will be your home, if you would like to be certain. Either Jesus Christ died for your sins, or He didn't (He did!). Are you prepared to stand before God on the Judgment Day and tell Him that you didn't need the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the Cross to have your sins forgiven and get in right-standing with God? We plead with you...please don't make such a tragic mistake.
To get to know God, to be at peace with God, to have your sins forgiven, to make certain heaven will be your home for eternity, to make certain that you are in right-standing with God right now ... please click here to help you understand the importance of being reconciled to God. What you do about being reconciled to God will determine where you will spend eternity, precious one. Your decision to be reconciled to God is the most important decision you'll ever make in this life, because in Christ, it is impossible to put a value on the worth of your soul in light of eternity.
