Tuesday May 1st


"Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you.  Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith.  Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever."  Hebrews 13:7-8

Jesus, with so many changes in the world, in my nation's political climate, and in my church and family it is so easy for me to feel insecure and lost.  You have brought to yourself so many people who were significant to me.  You have moved so many strong Christian friends away from me, too.  In trying to fix my insecure heart, I easily want to "check out" by daydreaming about how things used to be.  And yet, you want me to live today secure in your love and truth.  You never change.  You were my rock in those "good ole days" and you will be my rock now.  Help me boldly step out into the future by remembering you are with me and that the leaders you have given and taken away have left a piece of themselves in my heart to guide me.  AMEN

Since Jesus and his promise to re-unite us one day never changes; I can live today in hopeful anticipation.
