Hi, thanks so much for stopping by!
I’m Lisa Hadden…
I have known Jesus for 26 years.
Been married for 30 years, have two adult married children, and 3 sweet little grandchildren…
I was 26 when I met Jesus, and in the world’s eyes it looked like I had it all. A wonderful husband, 2 beautiful kids, a nice home, car, family…etc… but on the inside I was broken, and I didn’t like who I had become…Filled with sadness, and lots of regrets, my heart felt ugly…tired and always alone. These feelings of hopelessness were tucked deep down, and I would never have admitted the truth to anyone…not even myself. What scared me the most, was that I had these sweet little babies, and I didn’t know if I could be the mom they deserved!
That’s When I met Liz, a beautiful teenage girl, who, by chance, came over to babysit our kids.…. She loved Jesus, and she was truly happy, you know what I mean? From the inside out she glowed.
She laughed… and loved big…
As I watched her live her life, babysit my kids, love her family and friends…I would think, I want to be like that! She told me about Jesus. That He set her heart free, and that He loved me…Me??
She told me how I could know God if I really wanted to.
He is just a prayer away!
“Really?” I thought… “Pretty sure God scares me… and is big… super big, and definitely has way more important things going on….”
I smiled and thought… “hmmm.
What does that even mean???”
But something kept tugging at me..
It was scary… and strange, but I wanted to believe God was good…
So that afternoon, kneeling by the side of my bed, using words she had explained to me, I
For the first time ever in my life. I prayed:
“Dear God, if you are real, and you know me, and you could forgive all of my sins…all of the things that have left me broken hearted, I would be so grateful.
I want to know you, to live a life of love…for real, not just pretend! I don’t like who I have become, please forgive me. I want to know you if that’s okay…
Will you come into my heart, and help me to change my life…I need you. I need to know what love is. “
After praying those words from a place deep within my soul, I cried and cried and cried…
God’s love touched me…
His love entered my heart…
His love changed me.
God’s love will change you too…
For 26 years God has never left my side…
Oh, I might have wandered,
but His unfailing, unconditional love has covered and guided my every step, and He will
God Is so fighting for you… He wants you to know Him, Trust Him, and most importantly
He wants to have a relationship with you.
If you have never asked Jesus to come into Your heart,
Today is the perfect day!
You can simply repeat the exact words I said above…
Or add your own…
He is waiting for an invitation to come into your heart…
“Come to me all who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I a gentle and humble in heart, and you
will find rest for your souls.”
“For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall
not perish but have eternal life.
For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him..”
He love you…
He has great plans to give you a hope and a future…
Live in Love,
Beautiful web site!! God is truly a God of Love! Your words express this beautifully! Why is fear so close to the surface? I guess we are prone or used to being condemned, and God’s amazing love needs to penetrate this level of thinking so we can truly live in His love? Have a wonderful day!
Hi Trudy. I love the way you worded that! So so true… our human nature is always the opposite of Who God is. We are full of all the “fear” feelings only God can calm our souls with peace and true goodness. Thank you for your shout out of love! You made my day :) love to you, Lisa
