God Within Us Shows His Love and Passion To The World
At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father; and ye in me, and I in you. (John 14: 20) Words of Jesus Christ
The purpose of our mission is to fulfill the calling of God to show his Love and Passion to the wold, as the scriptures has made known these things: And we know that all things work together for the good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:28)
Where is Jesus Today? by Ellen Jean Barrier
We live in a modern-day time of advanced technology. In this generation of people we have divisiveness. Crime and wars, along with diseases and sicknesses exist. Homeless, starvation and the lack of an adequate income, and no financial aide still exist in many places.
The storms of life and physical storms, along with disasters plaque our world; leaving many people searching for answers: Why, do God allow these things to happen? and Where is Jesus?
History has taught us that these things have never left Earth. The purpose for which Jesus came to Earth was to give us hope and offer us a better life of peace with God. He gave us the understanding that the poor would always exist upon Earth. His work consisted of educating people about the power of God, healing those with diseases and sicknesses, feeding the hungry, spreading Joy and Peace and so many others things that made him God within the body of a man.
Today, Jesus lives in the Hearts and Souls of those who continues his work.
Where is Jesus Today?
Jesus is in shelters providing a place to live for those who are homeless.
Jesus is working in places to provide food for the hungry.
Jesus is in medical facilities providing health care for those who are sick.
Jesus is in the firemen battling the fires to save lives.
Jesus is in the police officers who have dedicated their lives to protect others.
Jesus in in the teachers who provide educational skills and teach self-confidence and respect to their students.
Jesus is in the streets, listening to those who tells him about their pain and suffering and all their troubles: He let them know that they are not alone. He offers to them his Love and Peace.
Jesus lives in the Soul of the Spiritual Leader that follows in his footsteps to serve all people. It is a calling, and not a choice.

The Lord’s Prayer
Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive our debts as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil:
For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.

Trusting God in the Midst of a Battle is a Challenge
The things that challenge our trust in God also, challenge our confidence within ourselves.
These are the challenges that comes to weaken our hope and test our faith.
When facing challenges that are so furious and you feel the intense of the force from their aggression against you, the battlefield becomes yours, and your enemies. You seek for Hope and it appears to be too far to reach. You call for Faith, and it does not answer. Instead, you see a stormy sky filled with a horrible darkness, and hears the loud sounds of thunder that shakes the ground upon which you stand. You look for Strength, and you see the fiery veins of lightning hitting the ground, and the destruction it causes come near you from each hit that shakes every nerve in your entire being. You desire Peace but instead, the challenges increase, and you hear a voice from within you cry out to God for help; the sky clears, and the sun appears.
There comes a time when we have to place the battle in God’s hands, and wait to see his glorious power prevail on our behalf.
My personal thoughts
Regardless of the challenges, the sun will always shine again, Hope will return, and Faith will conquer. We become stronger and wiser with each battle from the challenges that are placed upon us. Within ourselves a special kind of trust and peace dwells in our heart and soul, that gives us confidence.
“They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength”. The prophet Isaiah

My Personal Story: I have experienced such treatment (Leadership Abuse of Power)
“We are the children of one creator. We are different in some ways. Yet, we are equal.”

History will show that Jesus Christ, and the prophets, along with others in past generations, who accepted God as their creator and prayed to him for guidance, all experienced his blessings of peace and success. They left behind, legacies of great men and women.
Many young people of today have turned to God for guidance and have found through continuous prayers a peaceful and successful life. They are setting goals and making great achievements; while seeing a prosperous future ahead.
My Personal Relationship with God
In my own personal relationship with God, I have achieved many things and accomplished many goals. He has had a profound positive effect in my life from my preteen years to this present day. God has guided my decisions and intervened in my judgments to make the right decisions. Through prayers and patience, he has increased my wisdom.
The person who find their place in God, receive from him blessings in every aspect of their life as King David who wrote Psalm 1, and other writers along with many others have testified.
Psalm (chapter 1: 1-3)
Blessed is the man that walks not in the counsel of the
ungodly, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the
seat of the scornful.
But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law does
he meditate day and night.
And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water,
that brings forth his fruit in his season;
his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he does shall prosper.
