Life is complicated. But it really doesn’t have to be.

Whatever your questions about life, and wherever you go these days for answers, especially on the Internet, do you find that all you seem to get are ‘Do It Yourself’ answers?

just imagine, You have built a very complicated machine the design and purpose of which is for it to be a "make it or break it" difference in people’s lives.

Would you then put it out there for their use without instructions as to how to use it? Of course you wouldn't.

Neither did God.

And while the operations manual He provided appears daunting. It really isn’t. Why?

Because He condensed it down to two steps. Yes, that’s right. There are only two.

And they are both easy to implement. Not only that, but He will HELP YOU implement them.

They are relationships. One is vertical and the other is horizontal.

The vertical relationship is with Him. The horizontal relationships are with your neighbors, your fellow man.

If you seek to develop the first one, HE will help you develop the second one. In fact, He will help you with both.

There are any number of people who know this to be the truth. They believed it to be possible for them, they have experienced it, and will be more than happy to help you experience it as well.

Or, you can DO IT YOUR OWN WAY. But “Spoiler Alert!” A ‘Do It Yourself’ life, is all you will ever get.

Let me leave you with three passages from the Technical Support Manual:

“But seek first the kingdom of God

and His righteousness, and all

these things shall be added to you.”

(Matthew 6:33)

“And we know that all things work together

for good to those who love God, to those

who are called according to His purpose”.

(Romans 8:28)

I will never leave you nor forsake you.”

(Hebrews 13:5)

OH! REALLY? Hmm…..
