GOD WANTS YOU!!!  He wants you even when you can’t love, or want yourself.  COME!!!  Rest in Jesus.  Matthew 11:28-30 28Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 30For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.  Does this passage seem to fit you??  It certainly fit me.  I felt like I was being crushed by the world.  If it could go wrong—IT DID!!!  I was sin sick, but praise the Lord—I’m being held by Jesus.  He doesn’t care what you’ve done, but who you can be.  With God all things are possible.

God didn’t come for the well—He came for the sick.  Luke 5:31-32 31And Jesus answering said unto them, They that are whole need not a physician; but they that are sick. 32I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.  I tell you, I can see my picture there.  God can rescue anyone—If you’ll let Him.  Please!!  Let Him!!  BE HEALED!!  COME TO JESUS AND BE SAVED!!

Don’t let PRIDE get in your way.  Proverbs 11:2 2When pride cometh, then cometh shame: but with the lowly is wisdom.  Proverbs 16:18 18Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.  Proverbs 18:12 12Before destruction the heart of man is haughty, and before honour is humility.  Proverbs 29:23 23A man's pride shall bring him low: but honour shall uphold the humble in spirit.  Be as a lamb.  Seek to be meek and mild.  Jesus can show you the way.  Psalm 37:10-11 10For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be. 11But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.  Matthew 5:5 5Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.  LIFT YOUR EYES TO THE LORD AND BE SAVED!!!

Follow Jesus.  Keep your eyes on Him.  No matter IF the world tells you there’s many ways to God—KNOW THERE’S ONLY ONE WAY, and His name is Jesus!!  John 10:1-7 1Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that ,entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber. 2But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. 3To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out. 4And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice. 5And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers. 6This parable spake Jesus unto them: but they understood not what things they were which he spake unto them. 7Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.  ENTER THE DOOR!!  HIS NAME IS:  JESUS!!

Whatever comes your way—be satisfied.  Philippians 4:10-14 10But I rejoiced in the LORD greatly, that now at the last your care of me hath flourished again; wherein ye were also careful, but ye lacked opportunity. 11Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. 12I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. 13I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. 14Notwithstanding ye have well done, that ye did communicate with my affliction.

Know that God wants a tested and tried people.  Malachi 3:2-4 2But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiner's fire, and like fullers' soap: 3And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an offering in righteousness. 4Then shall the offering of Judah and Jerusalem be pleasant unto the LORD, as in the days of old, and as in former years.  PLEASE LET JESUS HOLD YOU UP!!

Just COME AS YOU ARE.  KNOW THAT YOU ARE LOVED! God Bless! Sincerely, Reggie Kelley.
