    The Journey North From Marseilles

    It's actually very difficult to have a bad day

    when you have eternal life to look forward to on the other end. There's a lot of people who are puzzled as to why genuine believers in Christ seem to always be optimistic about most situations and even embrace the difficult times. It's because we know God is holding us in His...

    because the Jews exist and the world cares about what they say what things they do. We dont care about Persians, Egyptians and Mexicans as a world. The world cares about the Holocaust. And the creation of the state of Israel the third time

    I am on a journey. I came from a dark place,

    my life was full of **** and lust. It took a shattering event for me to accept my weakness and change. I am only 100 days into my new life. I know God is in control. I am not perfect but understanding more everyday on how I should act in Gods eyes.

    God had let me fail when i worked

    so hard. God had let people to judge me and criticize me. God let the hurt continued for years. God took the people i love most. If God is testing me, and was able to go all through that, where the hell is my Reward? What is it for? It felt so unfair not to know.
