Good Morning to All! Last night, in deep need of reassurance, I decided to spend some time with Jesus. I sought his goodness, wisdom and gentleness. God gave us Jesus for a reason, friends. He KNEW we would be frightened. He knew also that without a kind, intelligent face, God’s Word could terrify.
So He sent his Son as a humble carpenter. Someone we could touch. Someone who literal voice could be heard. Someone willing to touch the untouchable. Someone who you could hear breathing as he slept- who cried out to God like we do and who could feel the pain of the whip- like we do. Jesus is so approachable in our time of need while God can be so fearful in his judgement at times. Out of pure love for you and me, he sent what he knew we needed- Jesus. In Jesus, we see the heart of kindness and love that IS God. It comforts us in our time of need.
Friends, I can’t really laugh or smile when I see what is happening in our nation and in our world. But I CAN celebrate and rejoice because all signs point to the imminent return of our Lord, Jesus- whose face generations have longed to see. It may very well be that you and I and will be so blessed to see it while we still live on this earth. It could well be that we get to experience the thousand years of righteous rule! Can you just IMAGINE what that would feel like? To be ourselves, yet live in a world that is JUST???!!! Oh, that would be such balm to the soul, wouldn’t it? God said he would wipe every tear. Cure all sickness. Settle all disputes between the nations. Every sword and weapon will be turned into peaceful tools as their ability to destroy will no longer be needed. How wonderful will that be, Friends!
We THIRST for justice, don’t we? We HUNGER for righteousness in our fellow man, don’t we? We CRY for the children who are either hurt or led astray by evil, don’t we?
Oh, Friends, God hears us. He hears every silent groan. Every unsaid prayer. Every heart sore agony we experience as we watch our beloved nation be over run. Be of good cheer and of sound heart, sisters and brothers of Christ. We ARE in good hands. And we will NOT be depressed and we will NOT be destroyed- neither mentally nor spiritually. Because we have FAITH in our God. And with God on our side, we will laugh at the impotence of mere man. Can I hear an AMEN?? How about another? I LOVE you all- we are ALL OF US, the body of Christ. Now, shall we begin a new day? 🙂 ♥
