"repenting is what we all need"
You are absolutely right! And me too!! If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9
"How can a man be born when he is old?" Nicodemus asked. "Surely he cannot enter a second time into his mother's womb to be born!" Jesus answered, "I tell you the truth, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. You should not be surprised at my saying, 'You must be born again.' The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit." John 3:3-8Born Again New Creation Atonement Salvation

"struggling with stress and negative atmosphere"
Thank you for your words of encouragement. We are grateful to God that He has touched you through this website. While we do not have an email newsletter at this time, you can receive one from http://www.capturedbygrace.com . We hope that this is helpful.
Here are some pages that may be helpful. God asks us to trust Him as He is, with HisEverlasting Love . If we are somehow becoming or are already Broken Hearted, the Lord God Almighty tells us "Come to Me". God wants you and me to "Cast_your_cares" upon Him Who can truly carry them and do something about our life when we submit it to Him. It is important to fix our eyes on Jesus, the Author and Perfecter of our Faith (Hebrews 12:2), to look at Him and not the waves and wind of our environment. Then God says, "walk with Me" and we can walk with Jesus, holding His Hand and following Him in obedience to His Word and Holy Spirit.
25During the fourth watch of the night Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake. 26When the disciples saw Him walking on the lake, they were terrified. "It's a ghost," they said, and cried out in fear. 27But Jesus immediately said to them: "Take courage! It is I. Don't be afraid."
28"Lord, if it's you," Peter replied, "tell me to come to You on the water." 29"Come," He said. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus.
This is where we as Christians are to LIVE!! Walking by faith with the Living Risen Savior Jesus Christ.
30But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, "Lord, save me!"
This is where most of the Christians survive, not thrive. But at least they know Who to call on!! :)
31Immediately Jesus reached out His hand and caught him. "You of little faith," He said, "why did you doubt?"
Trusting the Lord Jesus Christ in every moment makes life in faith come alive. Doing what God says as if He means it and it is true enables you to live His Eternal Life here on earth. "It is impossible for God to lie" Hebrews 6:18, Numbers 23:19, Titus 1:2
32And when they climbed into the boat, the wind died down. 33Then those who were in the boat worshiped Him, saying, "Truly you are the Son of God." Matthew 14
"Truly you are the Son of God." What a Truth we can embrace in our soul, heart and mind!! Worshipping Jesus for Who He (Hebrews 1:3)is enables us to Trust Him more in the nitty-gritty details of our life. Jesus personally teaches us when we Come to Him. And this mighty and all-knowing God can then help remove from us the effects of the stressful and negative atmospheres surrounding us!! God changes us, and we change because of Him, and our world seems different because of the God-Man Jesus Christ!!
"I want to receive Christ as my lord and saviour."
Thank you for writing to us! We are happy to hear of your message to us.
God says simply to believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved. Submit your heart and will to His Lordship and you will enter His Presence and Kingdom forever. You can simply say this prayer based upon Psalm 51.
"Lord Jesus Christ, I know that You love me and I know that You are God. Lord God Almighty, I know that You are holy and perfect. I am a sinner. I know that I have done many wrong things. I have had bad attitudes, and said, thought, and done wrong things. I have sinned against You. Lord God almighty, I am sorry. Lord God, I know that You sent Your Son Jesus Christ to take the punishment that I deserved. I ask that You place all of my sins on the cross of the Lord Jesus Christ so that I do not carry them any more. Lord God, You say in Your Word that if I trust in Jesus Christ and His Atonement, then I am considered right with You and I am your child. Lord God, I thank You for coming close to me and making me Your child. Lord God Almighty, fill me with Your Holy Spirit that I would live for You forever and always. God Almighty, break family curses and all strongholds on my life that are not of Jesus Christ. Fill me with Your holey sprit that You will have me as Your vessel for the salvation of souls, something only You can do! In Your Word You declare that. “as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.” Psalm 103:12 And , Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool. says the LORD. Isaiah 1:18 and “to all who received Him, to those who believed in His Name, He gave the right to become children of God— children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband's will, but born of God. John 1:12-13
I believe that You died for my sins to make a way for me to go to heaven. Please forgive me of my sins. I am sorry for what I have done. Lord Jesus, come into my life and take control of my life. I trust You, Jesus. Thank you for loving me and thank you for forgiving me!! Please give me Your Holy Spirit to live in me and teach me. Please open my mind and heart to Your words in your Bible. I love you. Amen."

15He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation. 16Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. 17And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; 18they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well." 19After the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, he was taken up into heaven and he sat at the right hand of God. 20Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it. Mark 16
The Lord God Almighty is grateful that you want His Son Jesus Christ to be your personal Savior. God has given you Atonement! A place for you to put your sins and where they will never come back onto you. When Jesus Declared, “It is finished”, His sacrificial death, the punishment Jesus took for your sins, completed the needed transaction, or payment, for the offenses you personally have done against God.
Congratulations if you have said this oath to the Lord God Almighty!!! Jesus says, “I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents." Luke 15:10
