This is an open letter to anyone who visits my page. 

I want you to know that God loves you very much. Whoever you are, whatever your past is, and whatever it is that you are planning to do in your life, believe that God truly cares for you. Because of His love for you, He sent His only Son, Jesus Christ to die on the cross for all your sins so you will be saved. You will not experience eternal death but eternal life if you believe in Him (John 3:16). But be amazed that Jesus didn't remain dead. On the third day, He rose again and ascended in heaven. Now, He gave His Holy Spirit to guide us and lead us as we take every waking moment of our life for us to live a life that is holy and pleasing to Him.

If you believe in that and you want Jesus Christ to be your Lord and Savior, pray this prayer and take this as your own:

"Father, I know that I have broken your laws and my sins have separated me from you. I am truly sorry, and now I want to turn away from my past sinful life toward you. Please forgive me, and help me avoid sinning again. I believe that your son, Jesus Christ died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead, is alive, and hears my prayer. I invite Jesus to become the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward. Please send your Holy Spirit to help me obey You, and to do Your will for the rest of my life.
In Jesus' name I pray, Amen."

If you have sincerely prayed that prayer, the Bible promises that the old has gone, the new has come! If you want to know more about this and how you can continue in your new walk with Christ, please talk to a pastor or a minister near your location or feel free to drop me a note thru connect@minaedralin.com.

Before I leave you, I want to share with you one of my favorite Bible verses. I always go back to this verse whenever I'm stressed or feeling worried. It's a reminder that God loves me and He cares for me and that He wants me to always be at peace. For me, this is an invitation to trust God and rest upon His mighty hand and power. Through these years, I have learned to put my confidence in Him. I now understand that my worth is not based on how other people view me or what and how much I can do. My friends and loved ones can disappoint me and fail me [and vise versa] but God will never do.

I pray that this verse can also minister to you as it does to me. I also hope and pray that my posts and sharing will always encourage you and in turn compel you to appreciate how beautiful life is and how lovely and wonderful the life-giver Himself.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.
(Philippians 4:6-9)
