Welcome Dear Friends!

I am honored that you stopped by! I pray you will be encouraged and blessed. I believe when we share our heartaches and victories, our faith is strengthened. Knowing God is with us, and our steps are ordered by Him, gives us hope for the future!

Standing Firm!

2 Thessalonians 2:15-17 (The Message)

15-17 So, friends, take a firm stand, feet on the ground and head high. Keep a tight grip on what you were taught, whether in personal conversation or by our letter. May Jesus himself and God our Father, who reached out in love and surprised you with gifts of unending help and confidence, put a fresh heart in you, invigorate your work, enliven your speech.

What would you have to do to stand firm for the Lord? Would it mean professing your faith maybe at work or with friends that didn't believe like you did? Could it be someone even in your family? Persecution is all around us and we will have to stand up for what we believe! Laws are being passed that will make it difficult to preach the truth, people will be persecuted. But now this really shouldn't be a surprise to us, we are told in the Word this would happen. I for one really didn't think I would see it in my lifetime. I love the way "the Message" states that God will give us unending help and confidence, give us a fresh heart, and we will have renewed strength and He will put the words in our mouth to tell everyone about Jesus. We must believe this will happen! We must have confidence and not be afraid in these difficult times. Remember what the Word says and stand firm. We do have victory and I know who wins, I read the last part of the Book. God Bless You, Dear Friend!
