Concerned About the Future?

December 28, 2017

Looking forward to the New Year is exciting for some and discouraging for others. Many people of all ages have real concerns about the future. Young adults who are single are wondering if they will find the right person to marry. Jobs are uncertain and they do not know what the future will bring. The young married couples face problems of child rearing to be overwhelming at times or maybe making decisions on having a family at all. Middle age brings different kind of trials. Many have children still at home, grandchildren coming along and possibly elderly parents that need care. Then the elderly may have health problems, financial concerns and fears about death. All of these people have genuine concerns, and without proper guidance the future may look grim. BUT, the answer to all of these uncertainties is in One person, the Lord Jesus. He is the answer. He told us to cast our care upon Him. Total trust in Jesus will bring peace and encouragement no matter what our age or circumstance. He will answer prayer and bring into our life what is best or us.

1 Peter 5:7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

Peace and Joy

December 26, 2017

Christmas is over, the presents are opened, leftovers are in the fridge and the cleanup and putting away of decorations has begun. Many people feel a letdown after the long awaited day is over. However for the Christian, the joy of knowing Jesus, not as a baby in a manger, but as our  Lord and Savior brings an inner peace and joy that only we can know.

May the sprit of “peace on earth, goodwill toward men” be with you today and throughout the year everyday.

Romans 15:13 Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.

Fear

2 Timothy 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

Fear

September 16, 2017

Maybe you fear what people think of you… Not having enough money… Public speaking, flying, being far from home, or spiders… Failure or rejection… Losing a loved one… Disease or pain… Death…. Fear is mentioned in the KJV version of the Bible over 500 times. Over 100 of those verses say, Fear Not. Trusting in the Lord is the only way to overcome fear. 

2 Timothy 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

God Cares

September 7, 2017

Sometimes in life when we think there is only sorrow or trials, we think God has forsaken us. Then He gives us a blessing to show us that He cares and loves us. When going through the darkest trial look for the blessing. It may be something very small, like a phone call or text message from family or friend. It may be something big like a rainbow after the storm, but God is there and we need to lean on Him for peace and comfort.

1 Peter 5:7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

Jesus Loves the Little Children 

August 19, 2017

Jesus loves the little children

All the children of the world Red, brown, yellow,Black and whiteThey are precious in His sight.

Jesus loves the little children Of the world.

Jesus died for all the children
All the children of the world Red, brown, yellow, Black and white.                                                                                                             They are precious in His sight.

Jesus died for all the children Of the world.

Jesus rose for all the children 

All the children of the world Red, brown, yellow, Black and white.                                                                                                             They are precious in His sight.
Jesus rose for all the children Of the world.

This children’s song is so true Jesus loves everyone no matter what color of skin they have and so should we. As Christians there should be no room in our hearts for hatred, especially because of a persons ethnicity or nationality. The Bible says to love one another.

1 John 3:23 And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment.
 

Confused?

August 15, 2017

GOD is the author of peace. GOD is not the author of confusion. The answer is to draw close to God through Bible reading and prayer. Also, seek godly counsel from a trusted Christian, pastor or friend.

1 Corinthians 14:33 For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.

It Is Well With My Soul

December 27, 2016

When peace like a river attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll,
Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say,
It is well, it is well with my soul.
Chorus:
It is well with my soul,
It is well, it is well with my soul

Many are still celebrating Christmas and looking for ward to New Years Activities, but some people are hurting. Today there is a funeral for a father of 3 who was killed in an accident 2 days befor Christmas. Another friend’s brother died from cancer last week. As Christians we can say even in the midst of tragedy, it is well with my soul. If you are hurting our prayer for you is to lean on Jesus who can give you the peace and comfort you need through this difficult time.

This song was written by Horatio G. Spafford in 1873 when he was over the spot where his 4 daughters were drowned when the ship they were traveling on sank. He was on his way to comfort his grieving wife when the “peace that passes understanding” prompted him to write this beautiful hymn. 

Philippians 4:7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
