Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. -Joshua 1:9 (NASB)

Are you just done with life? Are you sick of how the very ground beneath your feet crumbles? Are you tired of this bleak existence? Or do you know someone who feels this way?

As readers of this blog well know, I walked the earth for 40 years before Jesus made a friend His instrument to bring me to Him. I was no longer a sleepwalker. I was finally unplugged from the Matrix!

Before that, I slogged through four decades of wandering, reminding me now of the forty years in the wilderness that the Israelites spent before they could enter the Promised Land. No matter who I met, no matter what I pursued, I never found real, true meaning.

Till I was brought to Jesus. My heart is now never empty or alone, but instead filled with holy fire! Jesus told me to pursue Him, no matter what life looks like, and it’s been an incredible and blessed journey, gloriously unfolding ever since. Life’s road isn’t magically smooth, but I now am spiritually equipped and focused to walk it–and run it–no matter what lies ahead.

If you’ve been wandering and tired of the way your life has been groundless and meaningless, I welcome you to walk this way to Jesus. What do you have to lose? If you’re already saved, please forward this if you know someone who’s ready…at rock bottom…ready to live better and fuller.

Jesus will forever change and empower you to face anything, with an inerrant spiritual and moral compass to point you to Him. I pray that you, dear reader, or someone you know, will make the jump. You won’t regret it, but instead wonder why you didn’t earlier!
