Behold Your Mother

Of all the things that was on Jesus’ mind as He was suffering on the cross, He wanted to make sure His mother was taken care of.  This was the woman who raised Jesus as a child.  This was the woman who was obedient to God and made great sacrifice.  She followed Him to the end.

Watching for the Day

Are you watching?  Do you know what to watch for? What are we looking for?  Why should we watch?  There will be a day when God will judge the earth.  Sounds scary, doesn’t it?  There will be seven years of tribulation that will be really bad here on earth.  Not the most encouraging news we could hear.  But, there will also be a day when God makes all things new.  When Jesus returns and takes us home.  When there will be no more tears, or sorrow or pain, no more disease or death.  No more evil.  For those of us who trust in Jesus and are children of God, it will be a glorious, wonderful occasion when we will be in His presence.  That is why we watch.  With anticipation.  Not with fear, but excitement!

Peace Through Troubled Times

Anyone besides me having a hard time having peace in these troubled times?  I have been reading scriptures and other articles that we will have peace through Christ and I know it’s true.  But, I still struggle with the anxiety of it all.  Yes, I still do find peace inside, because I know God is there and he has a plan, as frustrating as it is not knowing what that plan is.  I know God loves me and He is by my side even when I don’t feel it.  I know that He is always there for me even through this chaos.  Even though it seems the world has turned upside down with the virus, the empty shelves at the grocery store, the economy crashing, social distancing and all the bad news on TV, we need to continue reading God’s word and remember His promises and to continue in prayer and to trust in Him.

Do Not Fear

With God’s love there is no need to fear.  No matter what we are going through, God is always there to guide us through it.  Those of us who have faith in Christ know that we have eternal life with Him.  So why do we fear? Continue reading “Do Not Fear”

Confidence in Eternal Life

I was having a conversation the other day about someone we knew who had cancer.  I mentioned that this person said that they were ready and knew where they were going.  The reply was that we never know until the time comes.  I was taken aback by that knowing what both of us were taught.  I wish I had spoken up at the time to say what the gospel says about it, so i thought I would write about it here.  I will have to pick it up with him again.  After all, that is one of the most important questions to ask yourself.  Do you know where you are going after this life?  The Bible says, “yes!” Continue reading “Confidence in Eternal Life”
