“It’s Just A Thought”
No matter where you may find yourself these days it is obvious that; “Times’ they are a changing”. It is, as if, our world is sliding into the sea of insanity. No peace, no joy, no lasting solutions. Fear is the order of the day and hateful speech has replaced kind words.
I have always been so grateful for my Christian Values. The Word is a guide and light to my soul. However, I am more grateful than ever for the love of church family and my relationship with Christ. Each week, our sanctuary is full of loving hugs, warm smiles, and knowing who ever may be at the pulpit, we will all hear a steady dialogue of faith filled words declaring Jesus Christ is the answer to our problems. We all serve a God who is completely devoted to helping us climb higher than we ever thought possible. He provides us with His divine counsel to achieve our seeming impossibilities in life. His love demonstrated through His people helps us to focus on what so ever is good, lovely and a good report. The negativity we continue to hear and see is replaced by the inspiring uplifting presence of Godliness. As darkness covers the systems of power in the world, it is refreshing to feel the church rising to her occasion. Men, women, young adults, reaching for the Lord to help others find Him too. After all our faith must reach beyond ourselves, our needs, our dreams, to extend and give away what so freely has been given to us.
How difficult must it be to live day after day with no real hope of anything getting better? The fragility of life can change a person forever. Without a hope in the forever with God, how can you expect people to keep pressing on? As we continue our Pilgrims Progress through 2018 may we continue to pray. Pray for the gospel to reach new in-roads. Pray for our spiritual family as never before to be inspired to live a life worthy of our call. “Forgetting those things that are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead. I press, (we press) toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:14.
Keep loving God, let God keep leading you and let’s keep loving, encouraging, helping one another. The world is waiting for us to show them how life can be so rewarding.
Beloved, let us love one another.
Until The Next Time,
