GUEST POST – HOW CAN A RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS ADDRESS NEGATIVE EVENTS IN OUR LIVES!

I love GOD and I believe in this generation. I wake up everyday with a mission: disciple a generation. With every story that I get to share, I get the coolest seat in the front row watching God be radically awesome at what He does – love, redeem, heal, restore, forgive and change. I hope it will ring out LOUD AND CLEAR. God sees you and He loves you too.

How can a relationship with Jesus address negative events in our lives and positively impact our mental health?

I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full” (John 10:10). Through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, you can experience overflowing love, forgiveness, peace, and joy in your life. That is a promise from God found in the Bible.” One of the most remarkable things about a relationship with Jesus is that he can fulfill this promise even through the inevitable trials of life. It is common for individuals to be stuck on bad events that happened in the past. In the present, it can be easy to take everyday blessings for granted. And for the future, there are times where we are fearful. But through a relationship with Jesus, he can help us to be at peace with our past, be grateful for our everyday blessings in the present, and to have hope for an even better future. Just as he turn can turn water into wine, he can miraculously turn the negative aspects of our lives into something positive.

The power of this line of positive thinking is supported even by scientific fields such as positive psychology and health psychology today. Those who think positively are less likely to have health problems such as hypertension and diabetes, and are also more likely to live longer! This is because the thoughts that we have can impact the processes that take place in our bodies everyday. So having a strong relationship with Jesus can help anybody to be more healthy and to live a more meaningful and fulfilling life!

I’m telling you, God is GOOD! This is what it means to have a LIVING relationship with God. You depend on him through every season and situation in life. That’s the life of a radical, obedient, bold disciple – that everything is done for the glory of our Savior. EVERYTHING! Thank you Tristan, Your willingness to share your heart and soul is deeply appreciated. God bless you.πŸ’•

Friends, No matter where you are right now! Could you take a moment to comment/testify and show Gods goodness to you. It could be your testimony that encourages someone. And feel free to ask Tristan any questions! The more the merrier!πŸ˜ŠπŸ™β€

Blessings and Love.😊 πŸ™ ❀

  1. Yes…. having a good relationship with Jesus can help us realize and understand that just because you do what is right and a good person for the most part that doesn’t exclude us from facing adversity and disappointment in life. Also, we can’t have the testimony without the test first as well.

  2. It is so very refreshing, and a boost, to see another Christian give praise and thanks to our Lord for gifts of happiness and spiritual enlightenment. Amen, and thank you, June, for instilling this precious message to us, and thank you for being who you are and how much you care for others–Chris H. Stevenson (Pen name–Christy J. Breedlove)

  3. I’m not perfect ans sometimes I do question and doubt but I have a great reminder after a car accident. It was difficult because I had a wrist fracture that included surgery and lifelong lifestyle change. I was given a 20 % chance of mobility in my hand and wrist.

    Sometimes, I find it hard to be resiliant during stressful situations in my personal life. Work in progress everyday

  4. I can totally vouch for what you have written. I am able to experience an overflow of love, forgiveness and joy by submitting myself to God. One would think living a godly life would be dreary and dull but it is just the opposite. Once we let God take control of our lives, He fills our hearts with joy and peace and we are able to enjoy life as He wants us to, it is amazing! πŸ’•
