    For we have become partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence firm to the end, while it is said, "Today if you will hear his voice, don't harden your hearts, as in the rebellion." For who, when they heard, rebelled? Wasn't it all those who came out of Egypt led by Moses? Hebrew...

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 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 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 a holiday and remember it as "The day the world passed away."

    The troubles 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 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. 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
