A Web walk each day with Peggie through a home called Peggie’s Place! . . . .
Opposites attract….and sometimes, that’s delightful – but not THIS opposite! The opposite of HOPE is DESPAIR….and people worldwide have had their share of near-despair-drama these past days…We can Web-zoom to the latest hot-spotted news around the world: earthquakes, tornadoes, the economy, not to mention drugs, murder, rape and more….you name it, it’s somewhere on Google – and someplace on the Google Earth, where we all live!
But let’s zoom in further…..what about you and me as believers in the Lord Jesus Christ? We look to the Lord – and to His Word, especially the Psalms where David’s words seem so real you’d think he lived just down the street from us and had read the latest bad news on his laptop!
And the Good News? God is still on the Throne; He guides the affairs of men and He is in control. Visit “The Blessed Hope of the Church” and be encouraged by this sermon preached many years ago by my dear dad, now with the Lord.
The tape (remember those??) is very old – but the words are true and up-to-date! Enjoy – and be enouraged…..Our Heavenly Father watches over us this day. Now Twitter that less-than-140-character message around the world today! He’s watching and He’s on His way…it’s the “Blessed Hope of the Church!”
Scripture: “Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;” (Titus 2:13).
Today’s hymn: “The King Is Coming!” – Gaither Vocal Band/YouTube video
Today’s prayer: “Lord, I’m weary of this old world – its sin and wickedness, its despair and hopelessness. I look forward to that blessed day when You come to take Your people home. Help me to live now in the light of Your coming; help me to trust You, In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”</p
