Jesus is The Answer

The world sure is in a sad state. If you are not careful you will find yourself caught up in a whirlwind of drama and chaos.Violence, division, hype about politics, glorification of celebrity, and consumerism have taken the spot light. It is rare to find a voice or leader speaking about or focusing on anything but themselves. It's a challenge, if not an impossibility, to identify someone providing a focus on the simple message of love and goodwill. 

You can be that someone. In fact, if we each were that someone we could influence the message and impact our corner of the world. Share the truth of Jesus Christ. While the enemy continues to lie and deceive, you will be letting those you interact with know the truth.  He is the Living God in whom all good things come.Jesus Christ is the answer.

Beginning and end
Way, truth and life
Strong tower
Living water

"If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead,For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.As Scripture says, “Anyone who believes in him will never be put to shame"
Romans 10:9-11

Begin With God

There He is, right where you are. Yes, it's God. Do you see Him? Oh, right, you are in the middle of something you will stop to acknowledge Him in a bit. I know how that is with life being so busy. What's that you say? Oh, another issue and an interruption so you can't talk with God until later when things settle down. OK, I understand.

Your day of must do's, need nows, can you please, and oh by the ways, can soon become an unending cascade of time spent without acknowledging and being with God. Begin your day with Him. Start with words of praise and prayers. Ask that He guide you and that the Holy Spirit would accompany you in peace and safety through the day. Request the light of Christ around you and your loved ones and that God protect you like the pupil of His eye. Then praise him again and let him know that you love so much the way he cares for you. Thank him for sending his Son to rescue and share your heart with Him. Now walk all day in the grace of Jesus with full confidence that you are in his perfect care. End the day with God. Thank Him and sleep well lifting your heart and cares to Him.

God is the perfect beginning and end to each and every day.

"I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end." Revelation 22:13
