So many people love talking about God but won’t talk about Jesus Christ (in Greek) aka Yehoshua- shortened to Yeshua- Hamashiach (in Hebrew). Jesus the Messiah is who saves us. The Bible says Jesus Christ is the Way, the Truth and the Life and no one comes to the Father God but through Him. Why? Because Jesus Christ came down to die and on the third day be resurrected for our sins. It is He who covers us and all our sins with Himself so Father God sees us as holy to be redeemed to Heaven with Him. We need to believe and have a relationship wiyh Jesus Christ to be saved. People are reluctant because you first have to humbly admit you need a Savior and the enemy we all have does not want you to drop our pride so puffs it up and distracts us and tempts us to temporary pleasing things. But the way to Jesus is the right way and comes with eternal rewards as well as peace and joy and grace and mercy now. 😃❤️
Hard Beginnings and Good Endings
I think this is so many people’s story. This is all Christian’s story because life on this planet is riddled with people against God and troubles like mine has been but when we humbly accept salvation from Jesus Christ and begin a relationship, eternal life with Him begins then. While on this earth, we will still have trouble but we have hope and eternal life will continue when God one day pretty soon remakes everything without the sin and evil.
So even if things have been pretty yucky in life, that never has to be anyone’s eternal fate. There is hope in Jesus Christ and it is all laid put in the Bible for us. Praise God!😃❤️
When a Pianist Cannot Play a Piano
I am appreciative of the keyboards I have been given and provided in the bands, at home, at church. I play them all and it satisfies…
When a pianist cannot play a piano, however, there is a yearning left unattended. A keyboard does not have the same flavor, the same passion, the same presence. That being said all pianos are not alike and some are not better than a full sized keyboard.
I have a piano that sits awaiting renewal. It needs love to play to its potential. That love costs a great deal of money we keep having to put into house repairs and maintenance. I suppose all those things are more important…
A pianist longs to pour into a piano. A pianist without a piano is a visitor, is not home yet. There is no home without a piano there. It cannot be home because the passion remains bottled up. Waiting…
I see us Christians as pianists awaiting their piano in heaven. (I hope there are pianos in heaven… I would love to play for God and for you all.) But I think our home with God in heaven is like our great piano to make it home and pour our passion into. I long for it, look forward to it. ❤
My Daughter’s Rapture Dream
My 8 1/2 year old daughter had a dream two nights ago. She told me she dreamed the best dream, a rapture dream. I asked what it was like. She simply said, “It was so happy, because there was bombs and chaos and bad stuff going on and all of a sudden Jesus took us to heaven. It was beautiful.” The beauty of heaven must have overshadowed the chaos that happened just before because she did not mention how dark or scary it was before, just that Jesus took us to heaven. The saving part and heaven was all she saw of it and it gave her happy thoughts the rest of the day. And she has been on great behavior looking forward to that day.
Maybe we need to focus on our salvation and promise of heaven more and stop paying so much attention to the negativity. Maybe we will draw closer to Jesus and not be overwhelmed by the bad stuff that will happen. Expect it but rest in Jesus, who is way bigger.❤❤❤
