Living an Abundant Life
Jesus said, "I came that they might have life and that they might have it more abundantly" (John 10:10).
What does this mean for you and for me?
If we look at the first part of the verse, it says, "The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy." Jesus was contrasting what He has to offer with what the world offers. He was warning his followers to be alert to the ways of the world and be aware of the eternal treasure He offers.
Some may think that God is stingy with His blessings. But nothing could be further from the truth. God wants you and me to be blessed more than we want it ourselves.
The thief comes for selfish reasons. Jesus came to give. He came that we may have life in Him that is meaningful, purposeful, joyful and eternal. He is concerned with what is in our hearts. He wants our hearts to be filled with love, joy and peace.
What gives you love, joy and peace? Is it more toys or more cars or more things. External things usually fall short in the long term. Seek peace from within. It is everlasting. It is the Kingdom of Heaven.
Ask God for help... We all could use a little help. God wants to help each of us. He wants us to come to Him, to seek Him and put our dependence on Him. Asking God demonstrates dependence on God.
He is always available and is always ready to hear our concerns. And the best part. . . He loves each of us.
Many of us are reluctant to ASK. We say, "God is busy," or "My question is not that important," or "I'll do it tomorrow." Also, there is the tendency to want to do everything ourselves.
My hope and desire for this website is to provide a place to share our concerns, our victories and to discuss how God has answered our prayers. "Ask God For Help," is to be a place to ask questions, answer questions and share what has helped you to grow close to Christ.
As Christians, we are instructed in the Word to grow and become mature in Christ. Spiritual maturity is growing in the wisdom of God.

Healing begins when we recognize we have a problem. Step two of healing is asking for help. Asking God for help opens our lives and our minds to His mighty power. Jesus said, "I came that you might have life, and that you may have it more abundantly" (John 10: 10).
"But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God,
who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given
to him." God invites us to ask.
Ask God to guide you. Ask God if you should share. What would God want you to share? Your victories, your trials or words of encouragement?
Many just don't have the missing pieces of the puzzle of life. To many life is a void, hollow and without meaning. The missing piece is Jesus Christ and only He can fill the void. Who does God use to spread His good works. . . you?
