Anxiety and Worry

After the last series, I was not sure what to write about next.  I am still not sure where to go from here.  I need to be patient and listen to the Holy Spirit to guide me.  In the meantime, I have been struggling looking for work.  I was laid off the end of July and it has been frustrating, getting few calls.  There also has been a couple family issues to deal with.  So, this one is kind of reminding me that God is good and He provides.  He will take care of me and I don’t have to worry, because I can trust in Him for things to work out.  It is a time to remember that many in this world are struggling, a lot worse than I.  I have been very blessed, as most people are in this country and many of us take it for granted.  I have been to Haiti several times and each time I am reminded of this.  Though people are in poverty, sometimes in danger, they still can find joy.  I see it in their smiles, I see it in the love they have shown me.  This lady in the featured picture was always smiling and singing praises to God, though she lived in an impoverished, struggling country.  We can learn from people like her.  God doesn’t always give us everything we want or get us out of the storm, but He is always there to help us through it.  And I know there is more blessing ahead.  So, don’t worry.

Jesus fulfills Old Testament Prophecy

Today I would like to take another detour, though Jesus is a promise of God.  With Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday coming up, I wanted to share a little of who Jesus is, why He did what He did, and that God had prophesied these things hundreds of years earlier.  This is just one of many in the scriptures, but there is a lot  in this scripture from Isaiah of the coming Messiah, Jesus Christ, Son of God, God Incarnate, our Lord, our Savior.  I broke this scripture from Isaiah up with New testament scriptures that pertain to the prophesy and its fulfillment.
