It all depends on where one casts their gaze – I get distracted with politics, the world, the media…….then I remember to cast my eyes and gaze upon the One who matters – the One who is in control – the One who works mightily….and who Saves. Lord Jesus Christ. And He calls you too :)
and He will never cast you away.
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
We love Him, because he first loved us. 1 john 4:18-19
Here is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 1 john 4:10
smile and rejoice in that :) do you know Him?
Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. acts 4:12
For whosoever will call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved
I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving,
and will call upon the name of the LORD. psalm 16:17
Call on His Name, and be saved
The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. Romans 10:8-9
yes – I preach! -people are dead in their sins, and there is good news and life In Christ! He gave me a voice, and only the living can praise His name and speak – the dead cannot :)

Hopes 5×5 Abandoned by Julie Shiel, Xenya.etsy.com
Come ye weary, heavy laden, Lost and ruined by the fall;
If you tarry till you’re better, You will never come at all!
Not the righteous, not the righteous, Sinners Jesus came to call;
Not the righteous, not the righteous, Sinners Jesus came to call.
“Come Ye, Sinners” lyrics by Joseph Hart
