Past the pain comes reward through faith in Jesus Christ

Blooming In Grace

In Proverbs 16:31, the Bible says, “Gray hair is a crown of glory; it is gained in a righteous life.”

The Bible also says with age comes wisdom. While understanding is a crown of beauty in a world riddled with apprehension.

Today I encourage you to love the aged and elderly and teach the youth to treat all people with respect.

A Heart-wise with love lives life through Christ’s charity, and today’s world benefits from tranquility.

Frequently we bear witness to crime, hatred, and injustice, the intolerance that makes the heart sick, but through Christ, there is a brighter way.

Our youth has been conditioned to browbeating and oppression, and other causes the innocent to feel crushed and unworthy.

We can do better!

Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.—1 Corinthians 15:58

Although the odds are stacked against us, the wisdom of God takes the presidency.

Today’s media reflects crime and hostility, while indifference and intolerance have become the gauge by which to live.

The saints say, no!

I find my heart burdened over the disregard of the elderly and the unborn while the youth fear the classroom due to school shootings.

The perverse realization that the tides are turning, yet Christ is unchanging.

We, as Christians, have the power of God in us to live a separate way—to reflect responsibility and a higher form of living.

Remember Isaiah said, “a highway will be there; it will be called the Way of Holiness; it will be for those who walk on that Way. The unclean will not journey on it, and wicked fools will not go about it.

Do not submit to the world’s way, but we rebel against it, and not by the show of fists of fury but with sound resolve as an example of Christ.

At the same time, the youth is being brainwashed into living angrily. We teach them to live in love—never to accept this poor behavior, but instead, pour out God’s Grace, the goodness that shifts spaces.

In a world war-torn and becoming increasingly dangerous, we place our trust in Christ.

Let our conviction be evident so our homes are changed and our hearts purified.

Rather than hatred, let there be light; instead of intolerance, let patience guild you.

May the peace of Christ flow through you and all wrath be washed away in the name of Jesus.

May all bitterness be destroyed, and to forgive and forget be our motto.

“Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead.

I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.”-Philippians 4:13-14

Love is unattractive to those burdened with hate, but a heart filled with Christ is the way.

A soul saved by Grace longs to share in the goodness of God and not by force but through the result of the born-again.

Let the practice of love be the daily, and smiling before a grunt promote change.

May we hug before hurting and forgive before revenge—a time out to reflect on grace before an attitude. May we give before getting and show love without applause.

Concert appreciation to the aging and when getting old, never try to be young.

There is beauty in growing wiser, and as the wrinkles unfold, there are stories to be told.

I encourage you to break out of the old molds to pour into the new wineskins. Modesty is beautiful, and the appreciation of age is a gem of grace and peace.

Our children learn primarily from their parents, and home is where the heart is, so let wisdom become the crown for our children

It’s ok to grow old, but it’s a travesty to show bitterness, be well and serve the Lord in love.

Matthew 10:8
Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those with leprosy, and drive out demons. Freely you have received; freely give.

To raise the dead is to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ; to heal the sick is to mend a broken heart; to give freely is without charge.

God will bless it in the end.
