Words Of Encouragement
We are experiencing many challenges and many more are heading our way. But all of these challenges will pass. As a matter of fact “all things will pass,” and only God remains. As Jesus’ coming is nearer than it has ever been, there is nothing that we are trouble with, will remain. And yet these “trials” are the most valuable and powerful means to bring about Jesus more so in our own souls and in the lives of others, especially in those who are drifting from the Faith.
I encourage us to use the tools of Jesus, such as walking through the challenges with faith and responding with a love that gives others an eternal value. And that we never lose a moment in which to show grace and to build the Kingdom of God that will surely come. In the end, only what we have done for God and for our brothers and sisters will remain.
I pray “That our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ increase our faith and confidence that every trial and difficulty, no matter how big or small, is an opportunity to love. That He will increase as we decrease. That He will keep us focus on the opportunities and demands of the present moment. Amen.”
With love and peace,
