Wait on the Lord

Sometimes we feel that God has let us download because He doesn't provide an immediate answer to our prayer.

But waiting for the Lord can transform us into a people of growing faith.

King David spent years waiting to be crowded king and fleeing from Saul's wrath.

He grew into "a man after God's own heart" (Acts 13:22).

When we become frustrated with God's apparent delay in answering our prayer, let us remember that God is interested in developing faith and perseverance in our character.—James 1:2-4

There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens.

Wait on the Lord! 

Death is not the End!

Everything in this world eventually comes to an end.
All things, good and bad, do come to the end;
And life ultimately comes to the end, sometimes sooner than we expect!

It can be quiet disheartening when things come to an end.
We all know the painful emptiness of our heart when we lost our loved one(s)!
How we wish it was not over yet!

Through His death and resurrection, Jesus interjects hope for us.
Death is no longer the end!
Death is the door to eternity with God!

So let our heart not be troubled!
God has given us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 15:57).
“O Death, where is your sting? O Hades, where is your victory?” (1 Corinthians 15:55)

This life may be full of joys or disappointments.
But we keep our eyes and hearts fixed on the victory of the Cross!
Thank, Lord Jesus, for Your death and resurrection that guarantee our eternal future!

Shifting Shadows

Life changes like shifting shadows.
Nothing stays the same forever.

Some things change fast; 
Others take their sweet time.

To everything there is a season. (Ecclesiastes 3)
There is a time for every purpose under heaven. 
A time for birth and a time for death; 
A time for planting and a time for uprooting;
A time for gain and a time for loss;
A time for tears and a time for laughter;
A time for mourning and a time for dancing.

Sometimes we welcome changes; 
Often not.

But God does not change. (Malachi 3:6)
We can always rely on Him through the shifting seasons of life.
