Happy Midweek to all!
Praying everyone is safe and Healthy!
It has been almost 2 weeks since Easter (Resurrection Sunday). As Christians, we might be tempted to move on but we must remember Jesus's Resurrection is not just for a single Sunday it is for every day of our lives. The resurrection may have passed but the Hope of the Resurrection is new every morning because Jesus is physically risen from the dead. Jesus died for our sins, physically rose from the dead, and appeared to many as it is told in the Gospels and throughout the New Testament. It is understood how hard it is to keep the Resurrection at the forefront when death threatens us, our communities, those we love, and others all over the world, but we must remember the WORD of GOD. John 3:16 "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life". He really loves us.
Yes, our lives are not what they use to be due to this COVID19 Pandemic, BUT GOD will see us through. How are we doing these days? Are you focusing on what we are missing, the COVID 19, or who is our Keeper, Jesus Christ? We must keep the faith and keep hoping for better times
. Please keep praying. Pray to Christ, for everyone across the world to Trust in the LORD and Learn to always turn to the LORD for the peace we all seek and need. Also for all Christians to faithfully point others to Jesus in these uncertain times. Philippians 4: 6 NIV "Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God".
Blessings to all, miss everyone, and do not forget to KEEP PRAISING THE LORD!
