the verdict is in about our faith

As you read the following verses I will realize that we will not agree on everything, but I pray we will agree that Jesus is the only answer.  Read on…

John 14:6  NLT
Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.

For you are God, O Sovereign Lord. Your words are truth, and you have promised these good things to your servant.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.

You have been taught the holy Scriptures from childhood, and they have given you the wisdom to receive the salvation that comes by trusting in Christ Jesus.

Wisdom is a tree of life to those who embrace her; happy are those who hold her tightly.

Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep his promise.

“Look at the proud! They trust in themselves, and their lives are crooked. But the righteous will live by their faithfulness to God.

What we believe paves the roads of our lives.  What is it we hold tightly to?  Who will be holding on it us when we struggle?

Through my four and a half decades I have been on many roads.  Some of those roads were dirt and beautiful.  Some roads were paved with concrete or asphalt.  Some of all kinds had potholes.  Some are wide while some are narrow.  Each road is vital to getting somewhere.

The truth we believe from God gets us to the place God has planned for us.  God uses our pain to mold and direct us.  There is more to come. 

Hold tight.  The verdict is in.  God can always and forever be trusted.

People I am praying for:

Pray for Joan Norman as she has eye surgery today.  Pray for Larry Wood’s dad as he continues to have heard problems.  Pray for Cindy DeOms’ brother Ronnie who is recently out of the hospital and struggling.  Pray for Janie Brittian’s sister Christina as she battles sickness.  Rocky Cobler is still at UVA and waiting for a transplant; pray for him and his family and for his healing.  Pray for Randi Chandler and her sons.  Continue to pray for those touched by the flooding in Louisiana, and pray for their restoration.
