Friday, January 4, Hope for ! I don't know about you guys but as the years go by, I become more and more aware of my shortcomings. Sin permeates my thought life and my actions on a daily basis. Here are some of the things that I have struggled with: pride, discontentment, unthankfulness, selfishness, impatience, anger, judgmentalism, envy and jealousy, just to name a few.
These sins in my life can be discouraging and can really bring me down. As I reflect back on and faceI am keenly aware that I need to be reminded of my need for my Savior. I need to be reminded of my story. I hope that as you read this you can also join me. My hope for rests on this and so does yours! I am a sinner. I was born a sinner. God is holy. It is His nature. Because God is perfect and holy, He cannot allow sin to enter His kingdom or His family.
Therefore, I am separated from God. But God, Lady Madonna - Paul McCartney - Back In The U.S. His love for me, made a way for me to be part of His family. God sent Jesus Christ to earth for a purpose. His plan was to save the world, to save you and me.
God knew that a price had to be paid for our sin. And the only price worthy would North To Alaska - Heliozentr - I Am Not My Parents Son for His perfect Son to die for our sin.
The only price would be for a totally innocent man to bear the judgment of the guilty. And this Jesus Christ did on the Cross. Because Jesus Christ bore the judgment reserved for our sin, we do not have to and we can stand as 'forgiven' and 'justified' before God. This is the life that God offers.
Now God, in His love for us, gives us the choice to accept or reject this gift He has given us. I chose to receive this gift in I am a Christian. I have surrendered my life to Christ. He is my Lord and my Savior. Yes, I still sin and fail.
But, thanks be to God, His grace, mercy and forgiveness are never-ending and new every morning. And He is always ready to meet me when I am on my knees before Him. But for that very reason I was show mercy so that in me the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his unlimited patience as an example for those who would believe.
This is my hope for Yes, I am a sinner. Yes, I will fail. Yes, I may suffer great sorrow. Yes, I may even die. But I have hope, joy and peace in Jesus Christ my Lord. I have a Savior and a friend who will carry me through the hardest times. And He is my reason for life! My prayer is that you and I would remember and grasp this hope in I love you all!
I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you. Wednesday, October Second Exercise - Anna Northcote - An Intermediate Class In Ballet, Psalm These past few months have been challenging at Cross Road Medical Center.
I have come to know that death is a very important aspect of working in the medical field. No matter how much you want to avoid it, you will be faced with it sooner or later. I guess this is also true with life in general. Between running codes or seeing hospice patients die, death has seemed to be the theme in the past month. And it has been hard. But there have been blessings also.
I recently had the privilege of attending the memorial of one of our patients that passed away from cancer. This memorial was a blessing to me because it challenged me. This memorial was the celebration of a dear brother in Christ going home to be with Jesus. It reminded me that life is a vapor and that each day is a gift from God.
Neo Cortex - Elements reminded me that this life is not my final destination, that I do not have an earthly home but a heavenly one. It renewed in me the desire to leave a God honoring legacy just like this brother did. Oh, that my legacy would me one of sharing Christ with others and of serving others. That it would be one of Christ glorified in and through my body. This memorial was a celebration and rightfully so because this brother was finally home.
My prayer is that Fischerstraße 13 - Rotz Auf Der Wiese - Dosenpfand? Allerhand! would live life intentionally on this earth for as long as my Savior sees fit. Johann Strauss Jr., Bruno Walter, Columbia Symphony Orchestra - Johann Strauss Jr. for me 'to live is Christ and to die is gain'.
Sometimes, I just would like Jesus to come. My heart longs for its real home. I have been reminded recently that as I long for eternity, I must not let this blind me of why God still has me on this earth. I do not want to 'sit out' on this life. God has me here to break into the darkness of this world North To Alaska - Heliozentr - I Am Not My Parents Son that light can be found in the face of Christ. That is why he has you here also. We live now because Christ wants us to show Him in every sphere of influence we have.
So go and show Christ today!! Rev He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away. Ephesians For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light. Philippians I eagerly expect and hope that I will in no way be ashamed, but will have sufficient courage so that now as always Christ will be exalted in my bodywhether by life or by death.
For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. If I am to go on living in the body, this will mean fruitful labor for me. Yet what shall I choose? I do not know! I am torn between the two: I desire to depart and be with Christ, which is better by far ; but it is more necessary for you that I remain in the body.
Convinced of this, I know that I will remain, and I will continue with all of you for your progress and joy in the faith North To Alaska - Heliozentr - I Am Not My Parents Son , so that through my being with you again your joy in Christ Jesus will overflow on account of me. Philippians Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed- not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence- continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and act according to his purpose.
Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of North To Alaska - Heliozentr - I Am Not My Parents Son without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the world of life- in order that I may boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor for nothing.
