I am a Christian too! Once I learned that Jesus Christ died on a cross to do for me what I could NEVER ("strive enough") do for myself, I found peace. He did it! For you and for me,He did it! It is out of Jesus's death (HIS power), Istrive to live within His plan. I could NEVER (on my own) earn it... never! For God so loved Eleanor and me (the world), He sent His Son. THANKS BE TO oUR DAD Who LIVES in Heaven! Amen.
