Good morning, dearest reader. I pray you are safe and well. When thinking about this coming week, I thought it would be good to recall the life and work of our Savior Jesus Christ.
This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope. It is of the LORD’S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him (Lamentations 3:21-24).
Recalling scriptures on the life of Christ will help us get through this. The following verses are some of my favorites.
And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth (John 1:14).
The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord (Luke 4:18-19).
And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots (Matthew 27:35).
And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him (March 16:6).
Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God (Hebrews 12:2).
He Shall Return
For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be (Matthew 24:27).
Now the God of peace be with you all. Amen (Romans 15:33).

Thanks, Gail, for this uplifting post. It’s so needed these days. But with God in our lives, hope is always there. 🙂
I agree, Dot. Having the Lord in life brings peace amid the chaos. I don’t know what I’d do without Him. And I’m so thankful I don’t have to find out. He has promised to be with us until the end. Praying for you. Stay safe and well.
Indeed He has! And He’s already conquered the world! It’s always good to remind myself of this in tougher times, you know? Thank you for your prayers. Prayers for you and well wishes for your health and safety, too. God bless!
Hi there, Gail. I tried responding to your email, but it says it doesn’t exist? 🤔
Hi, Saania! I fixed it.
I sent you a reply, Saania.
Amen. Recalling all He has done for us. We are truly loved beyond measure.
Amen, Melissa. We are blessed. I’m thankful for friends who remind me of the important things. Blessings.
Great thoughts, Gail. Thanks for helping us keep our focus.
Thanks for reading, Annette! In times like these, it’s important to focus on the important things. Stay safe, dear friend. 💗
Years ago I was studying in a bible study and we had gotten off into some theological discussion and a dear looked at us and said: ” it’s about 6 hours one Friday”. She was right all those many years ago and she is right today.
I love that! She was, and is right. Thank you for sharing that. It made me smile. Sometimes we need a reminder of how simple the gospel is, and share it in a way everyone can understand it. Jesus did. Have a great week!
I was on the board of directors on my church for years and ultimatley walked away because people got too concerned about the business side of things and not the people in the pews. If you don’t care of the people in the pews you won’t have a business side to worry about. Take Care!
