We like to, and should, focus on the positive. We like happy endings…uplifting stories…sunshine days and feel good moments. If only life could be like that for each of us. There are contrasting times when nothing seems to go right; when the sun doesn’t shine; when the ending is less than happy…when death comes to one we love. These dark times, though we wish they weren’t, are part of life. The good; the bad…the happy; the sad are the contrasts of our lives. Even so, let’s focus on the positive.
For God so loved the world...
He gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Jesus said unto her,
"I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead , yet shall he live"
~ to inspire someone to rise above defeat and be all they can be...
~ not to convince, but rather to encourage the thoughts of the heart...
~ to remember the journey and those along the way...
~ of a man named Jesus, a wooden cross and eternal life.
1 Corinthians 13:12
We don't yet see things clearly. We're squinting in a fog, peering through a mist. But it won't be long before the weather clears and the sun shines bright!
We'll see it all then, see it all as clearly as God sees us, knowing Him directly just as He knows us!
2 Corinthians 5:21
For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ.
