Come Lord Come!

James 5:7-8 "Be patient, then, brothers, until the Lord's coming. See how the farmer waits for the land to yield its valuable crop and how patient he is for the autumn and spring rains. You too, be patient and stand firm, because the Lord's coming is near."

As many of us have heard or witnessed, we are faced with difficult times in the United States. Many of us are saying or at least thinking, "What in the world is going on with the decisions that are being made for the American people?" That is just it. "What in the world?" You see.. the decisions that are being made, are OF the world.

We as Christians are to look for those things that are OF God. I don't want to see our nation pulling away from God more and more, and I will do all I can to help America get back to what it once was (e.g. praying, voting..etc.), but I was reminded of these verses today with my "Daily Verse" post, James 5: 7-8. I will need to be patient until the Lord's coming. Yes, I will need to be patient and stand firm because the Lord is coming soon! Oh to be with the Lord...there will be no more pain, suffering, sin, darkness, evil....the list goes on and on....by the way, God is our ultimate health care....He knows what is best for us and the things to come! Come Lord Come!
Have you given your heart to Jesus Christ? Accept Him as Lord and Savior.

This Little Light of Mine!

"Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven." Matthew 5:16

I noticed this verse in my daily verse online. It immediately made me think of the worship song that we sang in our worship service yesterday, "Mighty to Save". This is so true. Our Lord is Mighty to save, and as the song that we sing says....SHINE your light! It is directly referring to this verse that we are to shine our light before men. Let them see Him in us, and that we would also glorify our Father in heaven.

Let's also remember to remind our children that we are to be good witnesses for our Lord Jesus Christ, shining our light. I am also reminded of the song that I was taught many years ago in Sunday School called "This Little Light of Mine":

Verse 1) "This little light of mine...I'm gonna let it shine..."

Verse 2) "Hide it under a bush..oh NO!...I'm gonna let it shine..."

Verse 3) "Don't let Satan blow it out!...I'm gonna let it shine..."

God bless you, and let your light shine!
