Fear and grief rise from our own troublesome thoughts, but the peace of Christ is able to lay them to rest.
In this life there is still hope, still time to repent, time to pray and to find faith in Christ who died for us. Our hope is in Him and to the next life.
Do not indulge in or be concerned with the cares of this life, they are a distraction to your daily walk and care of your soul. Be on your constant guard.
Do not be angry or afraid. When the world around you appears to be falling apart, look expectantly to heaven with faith and hope for renewal.
We trust in the gospel message and look beyond visible trials for which fear has no power to affect. Live in a way that you are always ready.
We have a hope in a kingdom that overcomes the fears of this world, and a good Shepherd that protects us.
Believers are called to be dedicated in the advancement of His kingdom. Trust the Father who knows what we need and stop worrying, He will provide.
