Today, the gardener stopped by my home. He tends to our roses which bloom beautiful, last for a while, then die away. They need to be cut off to make room for the fresh flowers to open…
Sometimes, our faith can act in the same way. At times, it blooms fresh and beautifully. At other times, it withers a bit, and sort of dies down. But one thing is true, as it is with the roses…the main rose bush always remains to give continual nourishment.
In the same way, God stands with us, and never stops feeding us. Our faith-feelings may wax and wane, our blooms may be bright, and then diminish somewhat. But the Lord will always nourish our spirits and bring about the blooms of faith again and again. We must never lose that thought and hope as we walk day by day with Him!
Sit back and let the music surround you, set all your cares free and relax…God has ‘your back!’
When we are burdened down with financial woes, or temptations of every kind, we can find encouragement and wisdom in scripture and prayer…
Always remember this: Nothing is impossible with God! No, not everything you try to do with Him nor for Him will always succeed. It must line up with His will and serve His purposes, and we can’t always know His every plan. But we can reach new heights in life if we trust in His will and work with Him!
This world offers a number of “spiritual leaders.” They say we must accept all of them in the name of “respect” to other cultures. But God says He is the One True God, and His Son is the Christ, and the only way to eternal life…
In (John 14:6) Jesus says He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life, and no one comes to the Father by through Him. In whom do you trust? Man’s “PC” ideas, or the word of the Lord?
There will be a day, and it will be so glorious! A day when everyone who has ever lived, great and small, will stand before the Lord and confess His name. Will you make the decision to praise Him now, or will it be then?
” ‘For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.“
