LovingDoves Ministries Sept 2005 Newsletter

Dear friend, Greetings in Jesus name. I have been getting calls and emails from people asking the question "WHY AM I HERE," Today I will answer that question, so if you ever encounter the same situation, you too will be prepared.

Have you ever looked up into the night sky and asked, WHY AM I HERE? If you have, you are certainly not alone. Most people, not everyone has had these thoughts, one time or another.
If you had to answer that question now, what would you say?

"To be a good parent"

"To find a cure for a disease"

"To make others happy"

or "possibly I don`t know."

Whatever your answer is, the fact that we asked "Why am I here?" reveals something very important about us. It shows that we have a sense,that we ave a purpose, that there is more to life than simply what we see, touch, taste or hear.
Think about this, have you ever seen a animal, a dog, a cat or even a chimpanzee, wondering about the meaning of life?
Granted, you can not tell what an animal is thinking nor have you ever seen a animal

pray?

or construct a temple?

or make an idol? or kneel down and worship?
Of course not.

On the other hand, every human culture involves the worship of something.
Why is this? The reason is simply that animals do not have what all people possess.

-A SPIRIT-

Our God given spirit is what gives us the ability to know and worship the One who has created us and loves us. Our spirit is no less a part of us than are our bodies and minds. Sadly though, we become so good at drowning out our spirit that we seldom notice it at all.

We flood our senses with music and movies and food and drink. We flood our minds with work and school. Then, when our spirit reminds us. "There is something you need" We often try in vain to meet the emptiness with the philosophy, "Eat, Drink and be Merry".
Sometimes we think, if we only had more money than, I would be more happier. But many wealthy and famous people have tried to find happiness and fulfillment through every luxury and every pleasure that money can afford, only to end up more unhappy and miserable than they had been before. This is because until we address our spiritual needs, we can not possibly be fulfilled.

So what do we need to do? Well, if your car was not running right, you would look in the owner`s manual or take it to a repair garage. You certainly would not take it to the grocery salon for a tune-up. The same goes for us, we need to go straight to the source and see what God`s owner manual, the Bible says about His purpose in creating us.
There God clearly states "I have created man for my glory-Isaiah 43:7

Naturally we all live for our own glory in order to live for the glory of God, we need a new spiritual life, purpose, and nature from God. The manual says the problem is that "All have sinned and come short of the glory of God"-Romans 3:23.
It also says , "The spirit of man is the candle of the Lord searching all the inward parts"-Proverbs 20:27

God uses the spirit He has put inside us to reveal the darkness of our sin and produce a sense of need of salvation and a relationship with the One who has created us. For this to happen, our sins must be washed away. God loves us so much that He sent jesus into this world to take our place,to bear the punishment for our sins, so we do not have to.

The bible says "If we confess with thy mouth, The Lord Jesus Christ and shalt believe in thine heart that God has raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved"-Romans 10:9

Trust Jesus as your Savior and all your sins will be washed away and you can begin a relationship with God that will result in living for His Glory. Once you are saved, you can ask as the apostle Paul as asked "Lord what wilt thy have me to do?" Then by following God`s guidance through His Spirit and His Word, you will no longer wonder "Why am I here?" but rather live a life of meaning and purpose, with the joy and satisfaction that comes from knowing and fulfilling His plan for you.

For God so loved the world..." John 3:16
When Jesus tells us that God loved the world, Jesus did not mean that God loved only the trees, birds, mountains, and seas. What Jesus is saying is that God loves you. God does see all of your goodness, your flaws, your potential, and every blemish. Even when you rebel, stop caring, or forget about God, God still loves you.
When you make mistakes and falter, God's love falls down from heaven upon you no matter who you are or no matter what you've done.

When you openly reject God and all He is, God still loves you beyond measure. In God's eyes, although you might make mistakes and reject Him, in His eyes you are worth more than all the gold, silver, and things precious in the universe.
Today, ask yourself this question. Should the love God has for me be returned to Him by my loving Him back?

The Lord has answered my prayers and has fixed my finances, so I would like to bring "GODS WHEEL OF FORTUNE" back.

On a separate piece of paper, please put your birthday
whether or not you can receive money orders, how and where to send them
and whether or not you can receive stamps or embossed envelopes.thanks for your prayers.
God bless
