If you are struggling with difficult circumstances right now – chronic pain, a difficult marriage, a prodigal child, illness – you may find yourself asking God, “Why are you allowing so much hardship in my life?” Friend, take heart that your trials are producing great spiritual benefits in your life. These momentary trials are preparing for you an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison!
A teddy bear from Phillip's Love Bears is not merely a stuffed animal. It represents a legacy of care and compassion for children with disabilities. Born out of the heart of a disabled child, each bear sends the message that a person with a disability can play a significant role in touching a hurting world.
Every person, regardless of ability, is created in the image of God. And thus every life is valuable! But you can be created in the image of God and still be lost. The most important pro-life message you can share is the saving message of Jesus Christ. He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life!
Good things and bad things are always happening simultaneously in your life. Joy and sorrow are always mingled together, especially for the person whose hope is in Christ. Friend, the world needs to see your joy in the middle of your sorrows. What convincing proof of the power of Christ!
On an ordinary night in Bethlehem, the extraordinary happened – Jesus invaded the realm of darkness and stormed Satan's kingdom. As you celebrate the birth of Jesus this Christmas, allow him to invade your heart and storm your life. Only through Jesus will all be calm and bright!
The heart of becoming more like Christ is not trying hard to do the right thing and saying no to sinful ways. Holiness comes as you fix your eyes on Jesus, behold his glory, and treasure him above all else. When he captivates your heart, you cannot help but be transformed!
Jesus' first coming was a quiet one – born in a stable in the small town of Bethlehem. But when Jesus returns, it will be with a trumpet blast and the flash of lightning. Every eye will see him. As you celebrate the first arrival of Jesus this Christmas season, rejoice that he is coming back!
While God is sovereign over all that happens in your life – including pain and hardship – he takes no pleasure in your grief. Your hardships do not make him glad. Though his ways are mysterious, you can trust that when you're hurting, God's heart is with you.
