As summer rapidly approaches, let me be reminded that you are the
sunshine of my life. Let me always be aware of your love and caring. Amen.
That day when evening came, He said to his disciples, “Let us go
over to the other side” …leaving the crowd behind. Mark 4:35
There will be times in your life when you must decide to leave your friends behind,
who may not be taking the same path as you. Leave the crowd; be an individual;
chart your own oath path. Go to the other side. You may have to stand alone, but
God will be with you. He says that He will show you something you haven’t seen before.
What is man that you are mindful of him;
the Son of Man that you care for him? Psalm 8:4
Lord, why do you even care for us? We are as a passing shadow; disobedient, ungrateful, lowly creatures. And yet you put everything in man’s hand.
You put everything under our feet. Praise God you do care and love us,
because you look beyond our faults. What a mighty God!
The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise,
as some understand slowness. 2 Peter 3:9
We must trust God to do what He promises.
Be patient. God never breaks a promise.
Love your enemies; do good to those who hate you;
bless those who curse you; pray for those who mistreat you.
Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful. Luke 6:27-28, 36
The scripture says to first love, then bless, then pray, and to show
mercy to our enemies. What a tall task! Strengthen us, Lord.
But the day of the Lord will come like a thief… 2 Peter 3:10
He will come suddenly and unexpectedly. No one knows the
day or the hour. We must be ready. Get your house in order!
This is how God showed his love among us. He sent his one and only
son into the world that we might live through him. This is love.
Not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent his son. 1 John 4:9
God has shown us his love. How do we show him our love?
But do not forget this one thing, Dear Friend. With the Lord a day
is like a thousand years and a thousand years like a day. 2 Peter 3:8
God does not see time as we do. Time was
created for man, not God. Be watchful and be ready.
