Starts With Sadness Ends With Joy!

  Holy Week , in the Christian church, the week between  Palm Sunday  and  Easter , observed with special solemnity as a time of devotion to the  Passion  of  Jesus Christ . In the Greek and Roman liturgical books, it is called the Great Week because great deeds were  done  by God during this week. The name Holy Week was used in the 4th century by  St. Athanasius ,  bishop  of  Alexandria , and  St. Epiphanius of Constantia . ( Holy Week consist of Palm Sunday, Holy Monday, Holy Tuesday, Holy Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday and leads us to Easter Sunday! Billy Graham said, “When Jesus hung on the cross, a great unseen cosmic battle raged in the heavens—and in the end, Christ triumphed over all the forces of evil and death and hell.” This week is not only sad, but is joyful. We can praise God that Christ Is Risen! Blessings

The Lord Is Waiting ~ Come and Accept His Mercy

“Therefore the Lord waits to be gracious to you; therefore he will rise up to show mercy to you. For the Lord is a God of justice; blessed are all those who wait for him.”Isaiah 30:18 All this time, the Lord is waiting on us to come to Him so He can be gracious and show us mercy. Most of us were waiting on Him to come to us. That is the beauty of our Lord. He never pushes His gifts on to us. He waits for us to come to Him and ask for them. Today, let us immediately go to Him asking for His grace and mercy. He is patiently waiting for you and me. Blessings!

"And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me." 2Corinthians 12:9 There are times we feel overwhelmed in our day to day lives. We notice our strength is low both physically, mentally, and spiritually. During these times, we have two choices. We can sit down and feel sorry for ourselves or we can grab our Bibles and start reading God's words. Psalm 73:26 says, "My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever." Nehemiah 8:10 says, "Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength." You can find numerous scriptures on God giving us strength in our lives. By reading His word and reminding ourselves that we can do all things through Him that strengthens us, it will build us up and we won't continue feeling bad because His strength is sufficient. Ble

Even When We Are Sick!

  My health fails; my spirits droop, yet God remains! He is the strength of my heart; he is mine forever. Psalm 73:26 This past two weeks has been muddled with sickness for my husband and myself. We both were diagnosesd with COVID. His situation was such they carried him to the hospital; I was able to remain at home. Sometimes when you are sick, you just don't feel like doing anything, including reading your Bible. But thank God you can pray. Everything else was put on hold. But through it all, God's grace did sustain me. I knew God would be with my husband and take care of him. I also knew the Lord would take care of me. Fortunately. I realized it was imperative that I rest and take care of myself. Sometimes, we are so busy with our lives we forget to take care of ourselves and get the rest our bodies require to continue to operate.
