    🔹 The Holy Ghost from A to Z is a religious nonfiction book written by Liz Kazandzhy and published in June 2022

    🔹 Quote from J - Testifies of *Jesus Christ*

    Knowing that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world is a vital first step. But knowing that He is your Savior will make all the difference in your life. As you seek a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, the Spirit will help you feel His love, experience the healing power of His Atonement, and find comfort from the One who “[took] upon him [your] infirmities … that he may know … how to succor [you].”

    I share my testimony of the Savior in response to the Come Follow Me questions: "Consider writing your witness of Jesus Christ—what would you want to share? What experiences have helped you come to know and follow the Savior?"

    🔹 Takeaway

    Write down your testimony of Jesus Christ, then share it with someone if you feel prompted to

    🔹 God Will Help You is an inspirational Christian book by pastor Max Lucado published in 2020

    🔹 About Max Lucado

    "Max Lucado is a pastor, speaker, and best-selling author. His message is for the hurting, the guilty, the lonely, and the discouraged: God loves you; let him."

    🔹 Count on Christ

    Before the Savior miraculously fed the five thousand, the disciples "counted the hungry people, the money in their bag, and the amount of bread and fish. They did not, however, count on Christ."

    "The next time you feel overwhelmed, remind yourself of the One who is standing next to you. You aren’t alone. You aren’t without help. What bewilders you does not bewilder him. Your uphill is downhill for him. ... Give him what you have, offer thanks, and watch him go to work."

    🔹 Keep your gaze on Jesus

    The author compares the story of Peter walking on water to him focusing on his doctor's diplomas after receiving a difficult diagnosis

    "God has hung his diplomas in the universe. Rainbows, sunsets, horizons, and star-sequined skies. He has recorded his accomplishments in Scripture. ... His résumé includes Red Sea openings. Lions’ mouths closings. Goliath topplings. Lazarus raisings. Storm stillings and strollings. His lesson is clear. He’s the commander of every storm."

    🔹 Acknowledge the Savior's humanity

    When we "keep the humanity out of the incarnation," Jesus Christ is "easier to handle that way. ... But don’t do it. Let him be as human as he intended to be. Let him into the mire and muck of our world, for only if we let him in can he pull us out."

    The series "The Chosen" is a great example of portraying Christ as a real person, which helps us feel more connected to Him

    🔹 Be grateful for God's grace

    "Jesus has seen every backstreet, back-seat, backhanded moment of our lives. And he has resolved, 'My grace is enough. I can cleanse these people. I will wash away their betrayals.' For that reason we must make the Upper Room of Mercy our home address."

    The lyrics to "I Stand All Amazed" beautifully express gratitude for the Savior's sacrifice and grace

    🔹 Takeaway

    Think about the "storms" in your life right now. Then think about this: What has God accomplished—both in the scriptures and in your own life—that shows His power and love and ability to help you?
