This is my Father's world!

I have been reminded today that all we see and hear around us was created by the Lord God Almighty! Col 11:16-17 says all things were created by Him and for Him and by Him all things consist. So let us praise Him with His creation as Psalm 96:11 tells us Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad, let the sea roar 12 says let the field be joyful and all the trees of the wood rejoice. So rest in the fact He created it and He knows best how to sustain it (which includes all of us) and He promises He will. God bless!

Be sure!

You can be sure of the Lord's promise. Just as He prophesied that Jesus would be born and suffer for our sins on the cross. He has also told us that he will return, John 14:3 tells us "and if I go to prepare a place for you, I will come again". This is a hope to those who are watching and ready and a warning to those who are not. It is a promise either way and "it is impossible for God to lie" Heb 6:18. So trust in the Lord Jesus today for your salvation and your hope. God bless you today!

We miss you!

Not long ago Bethlehem lost another long time friend and faithful member Miss Opal, our pianist for over forty five years. Opal, along with Julian, was a fixture in the church. She was always right there beside Julian. I will always remember her saying "I think I'll keep him". We miss her at Bethlehem, some people's seats are filled but never their place. 

Today

There is an old quote that says "Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift of God, which is why we call it the present." I know it sounds a little cliche but it is true. The only thing we can do about yesterday is ask forgiveness. We trust God for tomorrow if it comes. But all we truly have is today. So what ever needs to be done or said you should do it today! "For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appeareth for a little time and then vanisheth away." James 4:14 KJV God bless you TODAY!
