In the previous posts on this subject we talk about how “you’re not alone” because everyone struggles and no matter what you are going through someone else has gone through it and been able to conquer it. This is what Also-Me stands for: You can look at anyone around you and say “Also-Me”: I hurt, I have doubts, I want to be loved, I feel alone and I don’t know what to do.
The other reason we discussed is there is someone in your life that will listen to you, help you, who cares about you and loves you. It might be a parent, teacher, co worker, pastor, friend or counselor. However, it’s up to you to turn to them for help.
The final reason I believe to be true and I know that it can help anyone as long as you are willing to open your heart and mind. You may not agree, but hear me out on this.
There is a Lord and Savior available to all of us. It doesn’t matter how alone your think you are or where you find yourself; He is always there and will never leave you. Jesus will give you strength beyond what you think is possible. He will give you a peace and love greater than anything we are able to do on our own.
While I know in certain circles He isn’t popular to talk about, I encourage you to open your mind to Him and make a personal, well informed decision. Don’t judge Him by what you see in the world. Seek Him and make a decision based on what you find. In order to address a lot of the criticism I hear from people I’d like to share a quote from Ghandi “I like your Christ, but I don’t like your Christians, they’re not much like your Christ”
I don’t share this to condemn all christians, but to emphasize a point. Judging Jesus based on what you see from flawed and imperfect people (which is every single one of us!) is to close your life to a Savior that came for ALL of us. It doesn’t matter what you have done, what you are going through or where you come from. He loves you! He is there for you!
If you are interested in building a relationship with Him or just finding out more; please go to the “Find Help” section at www.also-me.org and click on the “Faith – Questions / Seeking a Relationship with God”. There you will find resources for you to begin your journey. Under the books section there is a link to the Bible where you can find the entire Bible on one page. Throughout the web site you will find videos, books, music and more to help you on this journey.
Personally, Jesus has helped me through things I never thought I could endure. He has given me a strength and peace when I had none of my own left. The same thing is available for you. He will not force himself into your life, it is up to you to turn to Him. No matter what, He is always there and He will always Love you!
“It’s in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for. Long before we first heard of Christ and got our hopes up, He had His eye on us, had designs on us for glorious living, part of the overall purpose He is working out in everything and everyone” Ephesians 1:11-12 MSG
You’re Not Alone!
