Welcome to December! Let’s hope the madness ends with the coming of the new year! I’m not going to hold my breath, though. It may seem trying to traverse all the ills of this day and age, but let me remind you that you were allowed to live during this time in history for a reason, even if it’s only to trust Jesus and hold fast to him. We have much to look forward to, not only the promise of heaven but living our daily lives with the power of the truth on our side. We don’t know what tomorrow will bring, though we have prophecy as our guide, we can rest assured that whether we live in the flesh or move on to eternity, joy awaits because we are the beloveds of our King and Savior, and he wants only the best for us. Hold tight to Jesus while he refines us with fire and purifies us with his blood.
Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him. James 1:12
