I found my answer in Jesus Christ after 42 years of searching!   Having tried smoking, drinking, drugs, night clubs, pubs, money, church, relationships, sex, work, friends and many other things, I found nothing had a lasting effect, nothing filled that empty space, nothing satisfied.   Each pleasure came and went, often with unpleasant side effects.

Then I was challenged on the street, outside the Co-Op Supermarket, in Lower Addiscombe, Croydon, Surrey, UK.   I was asked about my beliefs in life by a young married couple.   I was walking along using crutches, while recovering from a spinal operation, so I couldn't run away!   I heard and felt God calling me to Him as this young couple told me about Jesus Christ.   How embarrassing, on the street, in the middle of the pavement, with lots of people all around!

They asked me if I would like to accept Jesus Christ as my Saviour?   I was more than ready, I was overcooked and burnt with the troubles of life.   I said yes and they prayed with me, so gentle, so loving, so kind, so calm and Jesus touched me!   Jesus filled that empty space right away.   How could He do that?   How unbelievable.   How true.   I was different from then on.   I felt clean, forgiven, strengthened and with a purpose for living at last!   And you too can experience the love and compassion of Jesus direct from Him.   He is always available for you.




These are some of my personal notes of what Jesus means to me.   I carry a notebook with me most of the time and I write things that speak to me and that are important to me.   These are moments of my life giving some of my experiences of my Saviour, Lord & King, Jesus Christ (Yeshua).   I pray that my notes will help you understand who Jesus is and challenge you to deepen your relationship with Him:

"I found that if you believe in nothing, nothing can help you and if you believe in God, God can help you."

"God is definitely in control but it depends whether we let Him into our life to experience His fullness and fulfilment."

"Seek Jesus as He gives wisdom for life and The Holy Spirit He sends is the oil that smoothes the wheels of life for a great future."

"Yes, I admit I am a sinner, but have accepted Jesus as my Saviour and The Holy Spirit has brought God's glory into me."

"Jesus is all the answers for my needs, yesterday, today and forever."


"When you are at the end of your energy, rest in God, walk and work with Him and leave exhaustion and naff tiredness behind."

"Do you know God or do you just know about God?   He sent His Son Jesus, The Way, The Truth and The Life to lead you to Him."

"We are supposed to work but not 'for a living' as the blessing of The Lord God makes you rich, not your job."

"I've found that prayer is not a special occasion; it's a way of life.   God loves to chat at any time when things are good or bad."

"Prayer is a chat with God, no special format; it's just that, a chat, stat!   He's ready 'at the drop of a hat' to chitchat with you."

"A good prodding question; have you prayed today?   A prod to pray; a prod to pray today!   I must do more."

"The tenderness of Jesus touches and tickles deep inside your heart and pumps power, passion and purpose into your life."

"Try one, get two free! The Holy Trinity; Almighty God the Father, Jesus Christ the Son and the Holy Spirit, your life supercharged."

"Over the last year or so I have found Jesus to be such a close friend more than I have ever known before, thank you so very much."

"Draw night to God.   I have found that when I sigh God is always nigh.   We're like children, sometimes I draw and sometimes He draws."

"Be bold, go behind the curtains of unbelief and examine God's claims and promises and you will be absolutely astounded."

"God is not a 'barely get by' God!   Accessing Him through His Son Jesus allows you to experience a wonderful 'over the top' God."

"I was astonished when I realise Jesus was our sin bearer, our representative and died for the whole world and rose again in victory."

"Do you know how much Jesus loves you?   I found Jesus drew me to Him and I ignored Him.   He didn't drag me.   He waited until I came!"

"When I asked Jesus to forgive me and come into my heart, He did!   Who would have thought He was real, unbelievable but true."

"In this world of daily turmoil, Jesus is always piecing me together with His peace and I highly recommend Him."

"When you live your daily life with Jesus, you get the story and He gets the glory."

"Life alone is like a bitch of a witch in a ditch; while life in Jesus is rich without a hitch right onto the pitch in your nitch."

"While some people worry about will 2012 be like in the film, the peace of God floods those who have complete trust in Jesus."

"When you can't see what God could possibly do to help you, He has thousands of answers if only you would ask Him."

"I have found Jesus to be funny, friendly, fair and fully-focused; I can talk with Him at any time, all lines are always open."

"I know and love Jesus, my Saviour.   His love lifted me up and now I live on the level, thank you Jesus."

"I've found that 'quantum physics' and 'the universe' are like the magical mystery tour and I prefer the solid foundation of Jesus."

"God answers prayer, so I dare you to pray!   A dream is a good start but who knows where God will take you if you ask Him?"

"When you honour God, He crosses over ahead of you and makes your crooked paths straight."

"When you walk down the street, people recognise your shape/clothes and say 'there you go' but you are not your body you only live there."

"If you go up the street in your car, people recognise your car and say 'there you go' but you are not your car!"

"Man is a spirit who lives in a body.   Death is an enemy, especially spiritual death, so avoid it if you can! and you can in Jesus."

"God is not mad at you, He is just madly in love with you and sent His Son Jesus to show you the way to Him."

"You don't have to work up a lather to wash your sin and guilt away, just ask Jesus and He'll do it for you, He's already paid for it."

"There are two exit doors to life so make sure you know where the right one is, as you never know when you'll be on your way out."

"You can't guarantee your next breath but you can guarantee your future life through Jesus, your choice, ask Him."

"Though you are 'dead in sin' you can easily have everlasting life through Jesus, if you ask Him, He is always available."

"However sad, however bad you've been - that can be the end of the matter through Jesus, call on His Name."



"I feel tired and rough right now, yet my Jesus is alive and well.   He makes me refreshed and rested, changing my state to swell."

"I will praise and thank you Jesus all my days, for you are my retainer and my sustainer, my everyday God."

"If you're trapped in religion, break out into a living relationship with The Living God, life is so much more enjoyable."

"Confess with your mouth and believe in your heart that God raised Jesus Christ from the dead and you will be saved, how easy is that?"

"After feeling unworthy and unhappy for years, I discovered God calls you, as you are, to grow in Him so you don't stay as you are!"

"I have found that Jesus is more relevant today than ever before."

"Jesus paid the price; He paid the full price so there is nothing more to pay, nothing outstanding as He knew we couldn't afford it."

"I was looking up, now things are looking up and I'm going up; functioning in the place, power, presence and purpose of God!"

"I'm on my way up, I'm getting there and I'm scared of heights but I'm all strapped in with Jesus, my comfort and my protection."

"I was lost and Jesus found me.   My life was dead and Jesus made me alive.   I was down and Jesus got me up.   I was empty and Jesus filled me."

"Jesus lived, died and rose again for you, no matter what you have done in the past.   He forgives, cleanses and can lift you up."

"Remember The Indestructible Word of God cannot be destroyed, nobody can reverse or stop its impact, it will achieve its purpose."

"When people and politics crucify and bury The Word of God, resurrect it and keep it alive in your life."

"When you live in your own strength you will only get so far; when you live in God's strength He will help you get all the way."

"The Lord is always here, ready and waiting; it's us who may be absent mentally, emotionally or spiritually so stir yourself up."

"God is omnipresent, present everywhere so just notice Him, be sensitive to Him and worship Him, He's easy to find."

"I used to hide my sin, but I found that when I confess my sin to Jesus, He forgives and forgets and grants me a new start!"

"A shower cleans the outside and The Word of God cleans the inside - make sure you spring clean everything."

"Before you leave home check and adjust your physical appearance in the mirror and check and adjust your heart in The Word of God."

"When you're thinking or feeling below average call on Jesus for assistance as He will lift you and help you become above average."


"I found out that satan hates me and that God loves me so the choice was easy.   I was drawn to God through His Son Jesus."

"Just a reminder when you're down that God is not put off by your mistakes, His love is so strong and He is ready when you are."

"However religious you are, however many things you do right, you cannot earn your salvation, God only considers your heart."

There's a war going on between the kingdom of darkness and The Kingdom of Light and the latter wins - which Kingdom are you in?"

"In religion people are trying to please man as well as God; in relationship with God people are trying to please God alone."

"When you've got that sinking feeling in the swamp of life take hold of The Word of God to raise you back up again!"

"Hope is a mixture of desire and expectation for the future.   Faith in The Word of God brings hope from the future back into your now."

"Faith is having confidence in what The Word of God says.   The supernatural force of The Word of God can do the impossible."

"I've just been using net whitener to brighten my curtains which reminds me of the shed Blood of Jesus making me white as snow."

"I was LOST and Jesus found me.   He was always looking and made a way for me to be forgiven and restored my life, beyond belief but real."

"I tried to end my life when I was desperate and had no hope but Jesus saved me and I didn't even know Him! - how great is that?"

"I found I cannot earn my way to Heaven by any means at all because Eternal Life is a free gift from God through Jesus His Son."

"Even when I did not believe in Jesus or myself, I realised that Jesus believed in me and offered me a future through Him."

"When I was weak and hungry I found Jesus to be The Bread of Life, who sustains me through all situations and circumstances."

"Life is worth exactly the value you put on it; I find it priceless.   It is so good to be alive and experience the love of Jesus."

"Learn to be satisfied from not knowing it all, use your faith in yourself, in others, in your God and press on to be the person you long to be."

"Dear Jesus, I am sorry for all my wrongs, thank you for dying and living for me, please come into my heart today and live in me now."

"Religion can seriously hold you back.   I have found Jesus to always meet me where I'm at, as He knows me so well, better than I do myself."

"Worship is just loving, knowing, feeling, touching, intimate; no special formula, just being you connecting with Jesus just being Him."

Resign from ourselves, assign / confine / align ourselves to Jesus and it will be fine to shine as a lifeline for others to recline / refine in Him."
