✞ Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, ... who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.✞~ 2 Corinthians 1:3-4
Part one of my testimony in my walk with Jesus...this video remains one very endearing to me for it strongly represents my own personal growth as a Christ follower and believer. Though I have come a long way since I first cried out to Jesus from atop a mountain in Virginia in 1987, yet I will 'always' be a work in progress for Jesus... beginning with facing and dealing with all my past hurts, pain, struggles, and regrets.
Living my life in and for Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior, has never been an easy road for me to follow for it is one filled with many ruts and potholes. But a life of real peace and hope it truly has been and I thank and praise Jesus for never giving up on me.
The biggest difference Jesus has made in my life is that I know He is always with me now and I have complete faith that He will yet make all things new from my life. For as I could never accomplish much on my own to feel fulfilled and complete, now I am 'always' aware of His goodness all around me even in the hardest of times and my worst of days.
I believe and have total confidence that He has a perfect plan in His mind for me you see and I believe His will is being done everywhere and in all things around me.
Jesus shows me the best way to go when I keep my full attention and senses focused on Him and in Him I can remain assured and will not be afraid or fear anything yet to come. He gives me His strength to carry on every single day.
When you put all your trust and faith in a living God and Savior who loves you and cares about all aspects of your life, you are in good hands 'always' and Jesus is a true and faithful friend.
Being a work in progress and 'always' seeking His direction for my life. I know He wants me to give Him my very best and to be obedient, His teachings must be my priority and focus, while at the same time I am too also reaching out to my brothers and sisters who are still and do not know Jesus Christ or have a personal relationship with Him.
We are all God's children, all different and unique. We all have talents and gifts and we were meant to share with each other and most of all give something back to our Father in Heaven who loves us more than anyone can or will ever love us.
I believe that when we make our Christian experience appear to unbelievers, or to one another, as one that is joyless, ﬁlled with trial, doubt, and perplexity, we dishonor God; for we do not correctly represent Jesus or the Christian faith.
We truly have a friend in Jesus, who has given us the most marked evidence of His love, and who is able and willing to give all of Himself to us.
It is not necessary for us to be ever stumbling and repenting and mourning and writing bitter things against ourselves. It is our privilege to believe the promises of the Word of God, and accept the blessings that Jesus loves to bestow, that our life be enriched and joyful. When we talk of Jesus, we can reﬂect the true joy of being a Christian believer.
Now I want to be at least a 'light' that shines of Christ's love in any future videos that I may make, and though sometimes I myself may feel very 'dim' ... in my own surroundings...I 'always' know inside my heart there is a brilliant and bright glow ~ and in that I can 'always' find my spiritual peace and comfort.
I hope you were blessed in some small way by this video and my message I share. I would like to hear about your own testimony and relationship with Jesus.
with love in all things Jesus, a brother in Christ, Hiker Dan
I am a writer for the Christ Spirit in me and I make videos put on my heart that are inspired by the indwelling Holy Spirit. All I share is dedicated to my Awesome Lord and Savior. May my motivation always be to share the love God has for all His children with the world as I am being guided on my personal journey hiking with Jesus.
