For God has not destined us for wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us so that whether we are awake or asleep we might live with him. Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing. 1 Thessalonians 5:9-11.
Because the death of Christ has made it possible for us to enjoy Him as our greatest treasure in life and in death, we must encourage one another and build one another up. This morning, instead of my thoughts, I am passing along something sent from one of our church family to encourage me. As it blessed me, I pray that will bless you:
A Word of Encouragement
by Bonnie Becker
In times of trial and testing
It’s often hard to see
Our loving heavenly Father’s hand
Reaching for you and me.
But, let us share a thought with you
In this most confusing time.
We still can rest upon His word
And know that He is kind.
He promises to comfort us,
To cling and never leave,
He’s a shelter in the time of storm
All our cares He can relieve.
So trust Him now, know He is God,
He’s a dear and faithful friend,
He wants to help in trouble
And give peace without an end.
Be encouraged and encourage one another, “just as you are doing.”
May God bless your day,
