    Everyone therefore who hears these words of mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man, who built his house on a rock. The rain came down, the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat on that house; and it didn't fall, for it was founded on the rock. Matthew 7:24'25 WEB.When I was little a...

Memories

  • The world is passing away with its lusts, but he who does God's will remains forever. 1 John 2:17 WEB.

    It was my first day of school at Kingston Elementary. Early that morning, my stepmother pulled up to the school, pushed me out of her car, and drove off. Standing there alone in the parking lot, I felt like a fish out of water. Panic, fear, abandonment, and a few other strong emotions rolled over me as I watched her car drive away. I remember it vividly today.

    I was six years old and starting in the first grade, totally lost and knowing no one. I had spent my whole life up to that point barefoot on a farm exploring the woods and fishing holes a bit like Tom Sawyer. This particular stepmother had kept me out of kindergarten the year before because it was too much trouble. They would probably have kept me out of school altogether if not for truant officers.

    Eventually, a teacher found me wandering around lost and lovingly helped me get to the right class. I thank God for teachers. A good teacher can make such an impact on the mind of a child. Each day became easier, and soon I began to enjoy school. Now that horrible first day is only a distant memory. And something that I thought was bad turned out to be something good.

    Many things in my life seemed like the end of the world while they were happening, yet now they are only a distant memory. All of the troubles and trials we go through in this life are temporary, and they too will pass. Even the end of our life is merely the beginning of something new. So be encouraged today, for even if the world passes away, it will just be a memory to those with eternal life. We will probably name it as a holiday and remember it as "The day the world passed away."

    The trouble of today will pass, and it will not be the end of us. We will live for eternity and spend time with the Lord Jesus Christ making more memories. So keep a positive attitude and trust God to work things out for the best. Don't let a fearful situation get the best of you, for this too will pass.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, my eyes are on You. Please walk with me today and let me know You are there. Send me the Comforter like You promised, for I need You more today than ever before. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!

    Note: 'Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God.' (Philippians 4:6-7) ~ If you have a prayer need, we are here for you! We and the prayer team are ready to lift you up at our private prayer page: RHM Prayer Network

I've learned so much by just letting go and giving it to God. I am forever thankful for the peace He gives me. And I always want to receive His blessings. May the good Lord always smile upon this sinner's soul and forgive me for my transgressions.
