Praise the Lord; praise God our savior! For each day he carries us in his arms.

Psalms 68:19 NLT
https://bible.com/bible/116/psa.68.19.NLT

 When I was kid, there was a popular song titled He ain’t Heavy, He’s my Brother. My sister Susie and I used to sing it for fun and because it spoke to the value of walking through life with each other caring and sharing the challenges that come along our way. If you want a flashback to some mid 70’s sound here is a link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E5Ni-HBsOhY. Have fun!

There is something incredibly tender when someone carries us in a time of need. We are vulnerable right now and need help. When others come alongside and help, there is gratitude that goes beyond words. The truth about the powerful nature of loving and caring for each other is it is the character of God being lived out in our lives.

Today, join me in giving God praise. He is our Savior. God is carrying us in his arms. We are not heavy to him at all. He carries us with tender love and powerful strength.

Encouragement: We are all being carried by God right now as we face just how fragile everything we have planned is. In the middle of a pandemic, God is our savior through Jesus Christ. He loves us and is drawing us to Him even now.

Prayer: Dear God, thank You for carrying us as we walk through this pandemic. We have always needed You to be our Savior. Right now, we are more aware of that truth. Thank you, Jesus, for being our savior. Thank you, Holy Spirit, for walking with us every step of the way. Thank you, Father God, for providing. We need You. In Jesus name, Amen.

Entire systems are built around it. Many times, we don’t even pay attention to it anymore. As a follower of Jesus, we are asked to think about power and position very differently through two words: service ...

God Can Be Trusted

Photo by Jannis Lucas on Unsplash Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep his promise. Hebrews 10:23 NLT https://bible.com/bible/116/heb.10.23.NLT Where trust exists, hope is likely to be nearby. The two work together. Trust gives hope confidence. Hope fuels trust. Hope thrives in relationships that can be trusted. One of the big challenges of today is the issue of “who can be trusted.” There is not one person or system ...

Unexpected Blessings

The sun was shining as three women saddled their horses at the Warm Beach Camp stables, but this ride was not for campers. They had a much different purpose. The ladies mounted their horses and made their way up the hill toward the Warm Beach Senior Community.   The COVID-19 crisis has meant that the Senior Community residents have been quarantined since early March. As for many of us, lock-down has led to feelings of isolation and sadness. The ladies from ...
