The Future Is As Bright As The Promises Of God

Archive for April 14, 2015

2 Peter 3:8-9

Do not forget this one thing, dear friends: To the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years is as one day. The Lord is not slow in doing what He promised–the way some people understand slowness. But God is being patient with you. He does not want anyone to be lost, but He wants all people to change their hearts and lives.
2 Peter 3:8-9 (NCV)

The Open Door

You, my son,
Have shown me God.
Your kiss upon my cheek
Has made me feel the gentle touch
Of Him who leads us on.
The memory of your smile, when young,
Reveals His face,
As mellowing years come on apace.
And when you went before,
You left the gates of Heaven ajar
That I might glimpse,
Approaching from afar,
The glories of His grace.
Hold, son, my hand,
Guide me along the path,
That, coming,
I may stumble not,
Nor roam,
Nor fail to show the way
Which leads us–Home.

A life lived for God leaves a lasting legacy.

Tongue Service

“Who among you is wise and understanding? Let him show by his good behavior his deeds in the gentleness of wisdom.” James 3:13 (NASB)
“Blessed and honorable is that person whose tongue is obedient to the law of Christ, and whose words are as a spring of wholesome water; who never uses scorn, except to scourge sin, or satire except to prune folly; who never puts the simple to confusion, nor flatters the great; who says no ill of any man except under the compulsion of truth and justice; who delights to speak well of every man and bids the cast down be of good cheer. This man dispels calumnies, lifts shadows, comforts sorrow, establishes righteousness, lays strife to rest, and brings in the Kingdom of God.” – Unknown
