Hope

I’ve written a bit about suffering lately, because of all the death and grieving that currently surrounds us.

But what about HOPE. Where is there HOPE in grief?

Jesus came to earth to offer HOPE. He knew that your life would be difficult. That there would be challenges along the way.

Sometimes I think what’s the point of writing about it? Why bother? Does anybody read what I’m writing?

But in Scripture, there’s a verse about the Angels. It goes something like this.

The Angels are joyful and elated over 1 repentant sinner. (Luke 15:10)  Isn’t that neat?

Angels are watching over us. Wherever they are, they are helping us fulfil our God-given purpose.

The Apostle Paul had a thorn in his flesh. The Bible isn’t clear as to what this thorn was. I imagine it would have been some sort of physical ailment that he carried around with him wherever he went. He was stoned after all because He was a Jewish Christian.

I often wonder, why do people die?

I had a fear of death many years ago. It was more than anxiety. It was a morbid fear of dying. I knew that FEAR didn’t come from God, but it came from the ENEMY. I couldn’t shake it though.

These days, I’m not so fearful of dying. I know I serve a King that will look after me. King Jesus.

Sometimes God doesn’t answer prayers. Why? I don’t know. He just doesn’t.

If I had all the answers to life’s questions I would be rich, but I’m far from rich.

We need to remember there are Seasons. We are now in a season of grief.

I’ve devoted my life to serving Jesus so others can hear the good news of the Gospel. It is Good News. It will get better from here. You just have to believe.

(Matthew 6:26) Look at the birds of the air; they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them.
