The Future Is As Bright As The Promises Of God

God Loves Every One Of Us

“Though we are incomplete, God loves us completely. Though we may feel lost and without compass, God’s love encompasses us completely…
He loves everyone of us, even those who are flawed, rejected, awkward, sorrowful or broken.”
Dieter F. Uchtdorf

“This Too Shall Pass” – Helen Steiner Rice

If I can endure for this minute
Whatever is happening to me,
No matter how heavy my heart is
Or how dark the moment may be–
If I can remain calm and quiet
With all the world crashing about me,
Secure in the knowledge God loves me
When everyone else seems to doubt me–
If I can but keep on believing
What I know in my heart to be true,
That darkness will fade with the morning
And that this will pass away, too–

Then nothing in life can defeat me
For as long as this knowledge remains
I can suffer whatever is happening
For I know God will break all of the chains
That are binding me tight in the darkness
And trying to fill me with fear–
For there is no night without the dawning
And I know that my morning is near.
Helen Steiner Rice

Evangelize Or Compromise?

“Our duty is to evangelize not compromise.” – shortfellow
True believers must not “let anyone capture you with empty philosophies and high sounding nonsense that comes from human thinking and from the spiritual powers of this world, rather than Christ” (Col.2:8). 1 Peter 3:15 also commands that “if someone asks you about your hope as a believer, always be ready to explain it.” In other words, we are to “gently instruct those who oppose the truth” (2 Tim. 2:24).
God is very serious about His children not compromising His Word with the values of the world. We must boldly present the truth of God’s Word. When the Word of God is given in all its power and purity there is a chance that the Word will soften hard hearts and cause those in error to “come to their senses and escape from the devil’s trap. For they have been held captive by him to do whatever he wants” (2 Tim. 2:26).
