Lord, there is so much turmoil in this world!
Terrorism, wars in the Middle East; election related violence – it’s hard to even watch the news!
“These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).
Lord, most of my family have forsaken me. They think that I am crazy for believing in You and loving You!
“Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division: For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three. The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law” (Luke 12:51-53).
Lord, there is so much hatred for You and for those who love You.
“If the world hates you, you know that it has hated Me before it hated you. “If you were of the world, the world would love its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, because of this the world hates you” (John 15:18-19).
Lord, we wait for Your coming. Are You coming soon, Lord?
“But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only” (Matthew 24:36).
Lord, I met a woman who helped me during a terrible tragedy, but I cannot find her now.
“Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares” (Hebrews 13:2).
Lord, please help me in my witness to others; help me be bold in sharing Your Salvation.
“And now, Lord, take note of their threats, and grant that Your bond-servants may speak Your word with all confidence” (Acts 4: 29).
Father, I know that you will make all things right one day. Thank You for Your Son Jesus. He brought “Good will toward men” from You! Because of Jesus, I can boldly approach Your throne. I can call You Abba Father!
“And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men. And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us. And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger. And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child. And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds. But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart” (Luke 2: 8-19)
I love you Lord. Thank You that through Your Son Jesus – ALL IS WELL!
Thank you, Rick from the Christian Bookstore, for pointing me to this amazing Christian singing group!
