The March church steeple is speaking. It says we do not need luck to get through this life. We do need the Lord. We need His strength, His guidance and especially His mercy. His love is overwhelming in my life and I’m sure it is in yours as well.
I’d like to post Joni Eareckson Tada singing the title song from the movie, “Alone, Yet Not Alone.” Due to copyright laws, I can’t do that – but please go over to You Tube and listen to this wonderful song. She does a fantastic job on it.
If we are, as I suspect, in the last days, then there might be a good reason for me to be looking up and hearing God’s still small voice when I see a beautiful steeple.
At no time in history have Christians needed to support each other. There is a definite attack on Christian values and morals. Bonding with like-minded friends is imperative today. That is one of the reasons I began writing a Christian blog. I realized that there is some “heart-hunger” in the Christian community. We all need some “iron-sharpening” and encouragement from time to time. We gain that through Bible study and prayer, of course; but also through Christian friendship. Lately I’ve read about a form of discrimination toward a Christian artist that disturbed me greatly.
When a Christian singer is nominated to receive an Oscar but then the nomination is revoked, that’s a message. I would not consider it persecution, but it’s close. It is that type of situation that tests our motives. Why do we do what we do? Is it for the glory of God or is it to get a man-made prize? If we’re able to say it is for God’s glory, then God is pleased and the devil gets a black eye.
It is my hope and prayer that we will lean on God more for proper attitudes and actions in our lives. May we not depend on luck or superstition, astrology or charms to determine the outcome of our lives. Only God knows our future and only He can help us live the very best life possible. Any life lived separate from God is less than the life we could have.
Be committed to your daily devotional time. It’s not a game, but prayer and Bible study are powerful tools in this day and age. ❤
