1 Peter 1:3
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
I was brought to know God through a neighbor. She had no idea what I had already been through or what my future would hold for me. But she did know that I didn’t know where to find hope. She knew that my life would find pain, as it does for everyone. She knew that there would be trials and temptations, as everyone has. She knew that I didn’t know Christ, as we all need to. She took me and choose to be intentional with me. She knew that I would need Him, as everyone does. So she was brave and shared with me . That bravery saved me! Without Him, I would be nothing, with Him I am enough.
Christ did that for me. Even before I was a thought, Christ died so that I could be free and he was resurrected so I would have hope.
