HOPE for TOMORROW
Updated: Apr 14, 2020
2000 years ago, the world was plunged into darkness when Jesus was crucified. Today the world has once again been plunged into darkness, a darkness fed by fear of the unknown.The Covid-19 virus has spread through out the world. It doesn't know the difference between followers or leaders, rich or poor, young or old.It strikes all and has killed many. We have been told to stay in our homes, bussinesses have closed and only necessary places remain open. Parents have been turned into teachers, entertainers and just plain eshausted caregivers. We are told the worst is yet to come and then it will be downhill, but... They keep moving the date farther and farther away. Will it ever end?
Yesterday, April 12, 2020 we celebrated the Easter Holiday, our churches were empty and families were not allowed to gather except by zoom or scype. Yet we celebrated because even death could not hold our Savior, Jesus Christ. Just as the scriptures fortold of His coming, death and resurection, the scrtiptures also hold HOPE for our futures.
I will be posting daily scriptures from the Bible for you to read or write. This scripture collection is from "Think on These Things" by The Architect and The Artist published January 2017. There are 31 readings. Here is the first, as you read, ask these questions:What does it mean to wait on God? What do hope and waiting have in common? Where should we put our hope? What do we put our hope in that eventually disappoint us?:
Psalm 17:13-14 New Living Translation (NLT)
13 Arise, O Lord! Stand against them, and bring them to their knees! Rescue me from the wicked with your sword! 14 By the power of your hand, O Lord, destroy those who look to this world for their reward. But satisfy the hunger of your treasured ones. May their children have plenty, leaving an inheritance for their descendants.
