Jesus told his disciples, “I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).

True peace comes not from the absence of trouble, but from the presence of God.

Alexander MacLare


Happy Father’s Day

He Has Risen!

Matthew 28:6

Palm Sunday marks the beginning of the Holy Week, leading up to Easter. During this time, write down some things that you will totally abstain from during Holy Week:
This is a ritual whereby many people give up something for a period of time in anticipation of a celebration of new beginnings.
Here are some things you can choose from, that you might consider giving up:
Intangible:
Winning an argument
Talking negatively about others
Lamenting missed opportunities
Resentment toward someone
Anxiety about the future
Focusing on your perceived weaknesses
Repeating gossip
Anger and resentment
Un-forgiveness
Hatred
Jealousy
Grudge
Greed
Fear
Doubt
etc.
Tangible:
– Favorite foods
– Drinks
– Meat
– Poultry
– Fast Food
– Favorite TV Shows
– Facebook
– Twitter
– Instagram
– Video Games
– Over-excessive Use of Cell Phones
– etc.
Holy Week is not about giving up something that you enjoy in an effort to somehow please God. You’re to also give up something that’s holding you back. The benefit of such a practice is that you give yourself time to create new habits which will enhance your soul’s expression and bring about great blessings, peace and joy.
 Holy Week
 
Happy Holy Week!

 

Why Worry When You Can Pray?

The thought of worry may be the first thing that comes to mind when you are facing difficult times in your life. As human, it is natural to experience different emotions when you are faced with difficulties in your life. However, if you allow God to take control; he will guide you in the right directions. Therefore, cast your burden on the Lord, and he will sustain you; he will never permit the righteous to be moved (Psalm 55:22).

There may be anxious thoughts that flood your mind as you navigate the difficult situations in your life; but anxiety will only allow you to be stressful and lose focus in moving forward. You should instead cast all your anxieties on the Lord because he cares for you (1 Peter 5:7). Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:6-7).

“The world can create trouble in peace, but God can create peace in trouble” (Thomas Watson).

Our Christmas Wishes To You

Dear Family and Friends,

We wish you a season filled with God’s peace and joy. May the true meaning of Christmas dwell in your heart. Jesus assures you that, “I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So, don’t be troubled or afraid” (John 14:27, NLT).

Merry Christmas And A Happy New Year!!!

God with Us

Matthew 1:23

In this era of uncertainty, as the world continues to grapple with the effect of COVID-19, you sometime wonder if you are alone, as you go through life’s struggles. Christmas 2020 may not be the same for you, as it was during other times. Your life may have changed as a result of a tragedy, such as, the loss of a loved one, a life-threatening medical diagnosis, a divorce, or a financial uncertainty. Regardless of such life-changing tragedies, there is one certainty that you can be assured of, and that is, “God with us” (Matthew 1:23). This scripture highlights the joy that came into the world, “Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall call his name Immanuel” (which means, God with us).

It is comforting to know that with all the evil and uncertainty happening in the world today, that your hope is not embedded in this world. You have an eternal home, of which you are a citizen, as you are just a visitor on this earth. But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ (Philippians 3:20, ESV). Find joy, peace, and hope, knowing that, “God with us,” as you go through your journey here on this earth.

A Prayer for Joy, Peace, and Hope

Lord, Jesus, it is sometimes difficult to find joy, peace, and hope in the midst of life’s struggles and uncertainty. However, thank you for the reminder of Immanuel, “God with us.” Therefore, I look to you for that courage and strength to experience joy, peace, and hope, despite my circumstances. You are worthy of my praise, no matter what I am facing in my life. Help me to continue to pray and trust you to work through every situation that I am facing today.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Are you facing a chronic or terminal illness, a financial hardship, a marriage break-down, the death of a loved one, an addiction, or other personal or family turmoil? As you go through the storm right now, God promises you that He will be with you always to the end (Matthew 28:20). He will give you peace in the midst of the storm (Mark 4:39). Hold on to Jesus, and you can ride out your storm.

Ask God to grant you the courage, faith and strength to make it through the storm. You may not understand everything right now, as the Lord’s thoughts are not like your thoughts, and His ways are not like your ways (Isaiah 55:8). However, you are reminded that all things work together for good for those who love God and are called according to His purpose (Romans 8:28).
