Anonymous: Are you all stupid? I'm talking ACTUAL FACTS! Evidence that Jesus walked on this Earth. Show me facts. Evidence he did exist. Nobody mentioned God.

Jesus IS God. Jesus IS Lord. One in the same. I promise you can find evidence if you looked and truly wanted to find it.

And I do not appreciate gray faces calling people stupid. Not necessary.

ericballard: Dearest Anon: You want another? I was on the brink of suicide at age 13, when God spoke to me, telling me that He died so that I could live.

^^^^^^ praise!!!!!!!!!

Anonymous: That's not really evidence though is it. Just you getting over your problems, which is great! But there is no evidence that god exists because of it

Anonymous. I am going to be real, I have never struggled with needing evidence that you are asking for in order to believe the Lord is real. I have talked with fellow believers who have found this evidence (of Jesus being a real person, THIS ONE IS NOT IN QUESTION BECAUSE HE WAS, but also proving He was the son of God, which could be done through his resurrection, and there is also evidence for this.) 

I had a chat with a friend about the basis of our faith, and when it all comes down to it why to we believe what we believe. For her professor it was through proof of the resurrection. For me my basis is through the miracles I have seen in my life and other’s lives. And it is confirmed through my faith that all Biblical scripture is God breathed and infallible. 

I would love to talk to you more about this is you come off of Anonymous. You are loved fiercely by a perfect God who wants to have a personal relationship with you. I will leave it at that.

hhesitance: I love your blog and also your responses to that anon. You go girl.

Thank you!! It’s such a hard thing to articulate and each person is taken by the Spirit in different ways! Some see evidence through a miracle happening in and through others, some need historical evidence. It’s good to remember that it is never up to us and always up to The Holy Spirit to take the scales off of people eyes and open them to the Truth! We just get to be the vessels He speaks through, and dangggg I am alright with that!!!!!!  

But seriously thank you for the encouragement!

Anonymous: Show me the evidence.

So there was this girl, right? She would have done anything to feel any ounce of acceptance this world had to offer. For one person to be jealous of her, for one boy to look in her direction, for the world to just think she was worth it. Plagued with insecurities, mental illness, and an eating disorder this girl screamed for love. Years passed as girl fell deeper into the desire for attention and love, giving herself up to lustful passions and giving away her innocence to anyone willing to take it, if only for a few moments. Confused and terribly alone, she would turn to alcohol and drugs to help maintain appearances and seem cool enough to have a friend.

I, Alyssa, at the age of 21 was COMPLETELY healed, redeemed, and given worth at the foot of the cross. How I ended up there is another whole story, but the end result remains. The evidence of Jesus is written on my heart, my face, and my LIFE. Who I am now is glaring evidence of the work of our God, LORD Jesus, and The Holy Spirit. 

Anonymous: Prove to me Jesus existed. And you can't use the bible. Your belief is flawed. It simply doesn't exist.

There is a plethora of evidence that Jesus is an actual person from historical records. That has never been a doubted fact…. There is also evidence aside from the Bible proving his resurrection but obviously that is less accepted. Either way the Bible is God breathed and true. That is all the evidence I will ever need.

And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.
― Matthew 28:20 (via he-knows-my—name)

Disturb us, Lord, when we are too well pleased with ourselves, 

when our dreams have come true because we have dreamed too little, when we arrive safely because we sailed too close to the shore. 

Disturb us, Lord, when with the abundance of things we possess,
we have lost our thirst for the waters of life, 
having fallen in love with life, we have ceased to dream of eternity, 
and in our efforts to build a new earth, 
we have allowed our vision of the new heaven to dim. 

Disturb us, Lord, to dare more boldly, to venture on wider seas, 
where storms will show your mastery, 
where losing sight of land, we shall find the stars. 
We ask you to push back the horizon of our hopes, 
and to push us into the future in strength, courage, hope, and love. 
This we ask in the name of our Captain, who is Jesus Christ.

― Francis Drake (via definedbyyou)
