The story of Apache, a dog that was adopted from the animal rescue. He loved his new family, especially Scott, his new best friend.
It doesn’t matter where we came from or how messed up our life has been, God will use us to do great things if we will put our hope and trust in Him. Never believe that your life has no purpose. Put your faith in God, He has loved you before you were born. He knows you and loves you. Turn to God and let Him show you how important you are to Him. You do have a God given purpose in this life.
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Perhaps you were born for such a time as this.
And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.
Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.
I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you.
The man possessed with demons (Legion)
‘Then they sailed to the country of the Gerasenes, which is opposite Galilee. And when He stepped out onto the land, a man from the city met Him who was possessed with demons; and he had not put on clothing for a long time and was not living in a house, but among the tombs. And seeing Jesus, he cried out and fell down before Him, and said with a loud voice, “ What business do You have with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I beg You, do not torment me!” For He had already commanded the unclean spirit to come out of the man. For it had seized him many times; and he was bound with chains and shackles and kept under guard, and yet he would break the restraints and be driven by the demon into the desert. And Jesus asked him, “What is your name?” And he said, “Legion”; because many demons had entered him. And they were begging Him not to command them to go away into the abyss. Now there was a herd of many pigs feeding there on the mountain; and the demons begged Him to permit them to enter the pigs. And He gave them permission. And the demons came out of the man and entered the pigs; and the herd rushed down the steep bank into the lake and was drowned. Now when the herdsmen saw what had happened, they ran away and reported everything in the city, and in the country. And the people came out to see what had happened; and they came to Jesus and found the man from whom the demons had gone out, sitting down at the feet of Jesus, clothed and in his right mind; and they became frightened. Those who had seen everything reported to them how the man who had been demon-possessed had been made well. And all the people of the territory of the Gerasenes and the surrounding region asked Him to leave them, because they were overwhelmed by great fear; and He got into a boat and returned. But the man from whom the demons had gone out was begging Him that he might accompany Him; but Jesus sent him away, saying, “Return to your home and describe what great things God has done for you.” So he went away, proclaiming throughout the city what great things Jesus had done for him. ‘
