Underneath Are the Everlasting Arms

Tuesday, May 24, 2011

Deuteronomy 33:27
"The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms..."

As many of you know, my father and ALLGRACEY's, went home to Glory a week ago Sunday. And God is indeed the Everlasting Arms that we need right now! He is so good to have given my siblings and me such a godly dad...and mom, too! I am also blessed in that all 4 of my siblings know Jesus Christ as their Savior, too. And then to have the support of my extended family--the Body of Christ, including my local church and many on SparkPeople--I am blessed beyond measure!

God blesses and sustains me--and you, if you are one of His--in times of sorrow and other troubles. He is loving, kind and compassionate! He understands what we are going through. After all, the Father gave His Son for our sins. Talk about separation! They had been together for all eternity past, and yet He had to turn away from Jesus when the sins of the whole world were upon Him on the cross. And the Son's temptations touched on all areas of life that we endure, so He understands us, too.

And beyond all of that, we have the blessed hope that we will be with Him--and those loved ones who are believers, who have gone before us--in Heaven one day.

Titus 2:13
"Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ"

Do you know Jesus Christ as YOUR Savior? He died for YOU!

If you don't--please choose Christ before it is too late!

2 Corinthians 6:2
"For He says: "In an acceptable time I have heard you, And in the day of salvation I have helped you." Behold, NOW is the accepted time; behold, NOW is the day of salvation."

If you have questions, please email me, and I will do my best to answer them.

If you DO know Him as your Savior, you are ALREADY one of my sisters (or brothers) in Christ! We are part of the Family of God!

    God is so good ... all of the time. His mercies are new every morning. We serve an awesome God - in the true sense of the word awesome, (as opposed to the modern sense).

    Thanks for being a light!
