Good News

Jesus answered, “I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand.  My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand.  I and the Father are one.”  ~John 10:28-30

How can it be?  Jesus holds me tightly, will not and cannot let me go.  I am safe, secure, and loved beyond measure.  Good news; great news!  Read some of John’s book in the Bible today….you’ll be glad.  🙂  Slainte, Lisa

Dreams and Snowflakes

DSCN2986

We are having snow this morning….thick, wet, huge snowflakes that are melting as soon as they hit the warmer pavement.  Which is great with me, as I am a pretty uncourageous snow driver.  The snow is fading away quickly, like a good dream that disappears into thin air as you awaken.

But some things, the really good things, never fade away.  The love of a special person, the faithfulness of God to us,  the promises that God has made in His word that always come to pass, the hope of eternity spent in peace and joy and beauty with Jesus.  These things will never pass away, never melt, never fade.  I am thankful for these things this morning.  Slainte, Lisa

 

Time and Eternity

Time is precious; time is fleeting.  Some days go quickly, while others drag on.  Yet the sum of life is short.  But before you get too morose in reading this, there is an answer to this, there is more to our story.  “He has made everything beautiful in its time.  God has also set eternity in the hearts of men.”  (Ecclesiastes 3:11a)  and better yet….

Jesus said to her(Martha):  “I am the resurrection and the life.  He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die.  Do you believe this?”  (John 11:25-26)

What about you?  What do you think?  Do Jesus’ words make you happy and want to dance, or does this freak you out because you don’t want to hear it or believe it?  If its the second choice, just sit on it awhile, don’t make a quick decision.  Because He loves you so much, even if you don’t always feel it.  He wants to give you a hope for your future…an endless future with no ending and eternal joy and peace.  A future where you don’t have to be afraid ever again.  Slainte, Lisa
