1 John 2:24-25... Let what you heard from the beginning abide in you. If what you heard from the beginning abides in you, then you too will abide in the Son and in the Father. And this is the promise that he made to us--eternal life

There are few things in life that you can or even should, count on. One of the things the Bible is absolutely crystal on is the fact that God is consistent. Simply put He never changes...ever. We can't say that about us or about anything else we can see around us...but God simply is. His promises, what ever they may be are absolutely trustworthy. Always...forever. Just like He is...and was and always will be.

Meditate on that today. I know I will.

Blessings All!

Hubble Telescope and God's hand

The Hubble Telescope is 20 years old this year. I love the pictures it has produced and the science it has done in those 20 years. Really. I can't imagine anything so awe-inspiring as to see just part of the universe our great God has made. Thank you Lord!

Another thing the pictures have reminded me of is that we are pretty tiny when compared to the might even say we are like microbes that only can be seen by an electron microscope in the vast scheme of things. Think about that! And yet God knows not only our place in the universe, our beginning and end, but he knows the hairs on our heads. In my case, a lot less hairs than I had 20 years ago. Yet, HE still watches over us and cares for us. What a great God we serve! What a special place he has made for us. May we never, ever take it for granted.

It boggles my mind when people look at the same thing I am looking at...the very pictures and information that inspires me to praise the Lord, and for them, it all appears as just a bunch of data points in space. They deny the existence of God...unbelievable! Yet some not only deny His existence, but mock those of us who believe in the all-mighty Creator and sustainer of all life everywhere. I pray that I can in some small way represent the life that God has granted me in a way that would point people to Him. A life that lifts Him up where ever I am and whenever I am there. May people find Jesus through me. I know He knows where they are...I just need to find them.

Blessings all!

John 14:1-3... Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me. In my Father's house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.

It's hard for us to trust. We have been let done and hurt so many, many times in our life and we realize that we will experience that same hurt and feeling again.

When it comes to Jesus. He has never failed. Look back and search your heart. You know this to be true. You know you can trust Him. He has never lied to us; he has never let us down. Place your trust in Him today and be assured. Not only of your salvation, but of your future here on earth. Do
