You talkin’ ta Me?? ~ August 27

You talkin’ ta Me??

Bring it! I’m Not Afraid!

Who is going to harm you if you are eager to do good? But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed, “Do not fear their threats; do not be afraid.” 1Peter 3:14

Unfortunately, we are often harmed for doing good. The world we live in is full of evil people who do not know God and wish to do harm to those who know Him. To those who mock my faith in God and want to do me harm, I say, “Bring it! I’m not afraid!”

Jesus walked this earth as a man, and he died a horrible death on the cross for us. For us! He didn’t do it for Himself—He had nothing to prove—He did it so you and I could have the opportunity to know God’s love and have the hope of eternity with Him. And His only hope is that we love Him.

As God’s children, we also have nothing to prove. We will probably not die on a cross, and hopefully, we will not die a horrible death. But no matter the cause of the death of our physical bodies, we will go on to spend eternity with our Father. We have nothing to fear.

I Can See Clearly Now ~ August 22

I Can See Clearly Now

As long as I’m looking at Him

This is how we know that we love the children of God: by loving God and carrying out His commands. 1John 5:2

I’m learning to simply concentrate on loving God, allowing Him to mold me into the person He wants me to be, knowing He will love others through me. I no longer wonder if I love others; I believe I do because I love God.

God has changed me over the last few years—He’s been working on me for a lot longer than that—and the amazing thing to me is I haven’t had to change myself. I simply focus on God, and He does the work. I liken it to standing in a beautiful valley, looking across it, and watching the sun come up over a distant hill. As the sun slowly rises, the day becomes brighter and warmer, and I watch as all things around me become clearer, and I am increasingly amazed at what I see and how the sun seems to envelop me in its warmth. I see it all unfold around me and am wrapped in the feeling of it, I think, “I need to let others know about this place.”

That place is the valley of God’s love, and to my joy, as I turn to go and find others to share it with, I find that they—you—are already there.
