Morning Star

I, Jesus, have sent my angel to testify to you 
about these things for the churches. 
I am the root and the descendant of David, 
the bright morning star.

A Prayer Request

Please keep my niece in your prayers. She had a neck injury a few weeks ago. She still has a lot of pain, is wearing a brace, and has been seeing doctors. I'm praying for complete healing. Thank you!

from Revelation 5:9-10 were slain, and by your blood you ransomed people for God
from every tribe and language and people and nation 
and you have made them a kingdom...

Jesus is the Answer

So many problems in our world are caused by selfishness. How many wars have been fought for reasons other than what we have been told? How many problems did we create ourselves? 

The snow falls. The sun shines. 
It doesn't fight. It doesn't steal. 

What the world needs is unconditional love, healing, and awareness of why all this has happened. As Alexander Solzhenitsyn said of his times, "Men have forgotten God; that’s why all this has happened."

The world needs God. 

You do. 
I do. 

We are not just all by ourselves. We are a force together, meant to be together, intended to be in connection with our Creator. It is so simple. How many times do we see kindness and it touches us deeply? Each person, anywhere, kindness, love, empathy, selflessness, these things move us all. 

Why are we so similar if we are supposed to be Us and Them? 

Something divides us. 
Something foolish. 

But Jesus makes all men brothers.

Isaiah 64:3-4

When you did awesome things that we did not look for,
you came down, the mountains quaked at your presence.
From of old no one has heard or perceived by the ear,
no eye has seen a God besides you,
who acts for those who wait for him.
