This is what my Father said to me when I was a young girl and that was at least 50 years ago.  He knew that from studying the Bible.  He himself a Sunday school teacher for young married couples knew one day Christians would be persecuted one day like they are now, all the way back in the 1960’s.

I myself could not imagine anyone would want to take my Bible from me as I am sure many Christians brushed aside back then.  Yet we know that all of this has been prophesied for thousands of years directly from God’s word the Holy Bible.  (Matthew 24:3-31). Tells us of the signs of the times and the end of age.  Please take a moment to read this powerful word direct from Jesus himself.

Our prayers this Christmas should include those being persecuted in the Middle East and all over the world  as Christians try to reach millions who still do not know that unless they come to the Father through His son Jesus Christ they will not enter the Kingdom of Heaven. (Romans 6:23). “For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” NKJV

This year, make Christmas less about giving gifts under the tree, and more about loving one another and salvation.

Yours in Christ’s love,  heartfulandhopeful

Christmas has always been hard on me.  I’am usually sick and I don’t do well with crowds.  I’m claustrophobic.  My husband does not understand this concept.  He also in my opinion doesn’t mind spreading his germs around!  I’am also diabetic which increases the chances of me catching a germ and then not being able to get rid of it quickly. So that being said, lets talk about santa claus.  Now here is an idea of a fat man in a suit that was not passed on to me by my parents.  Sure I knew who santa was from my playmates, but it never made sense to me.  Being raised by christian parents I knew the real reason for the idea of Christmas on December 25th each year was to celebrate the birth of Jesus.  ImageJesus was sent to earth as a human by His heavenly Father to die on a cross for our sins.  This is something to believe in and to give gifts for, not a fat man in a red suit.  Teach your children about Jesus, He is the only hope for this world and for you to have eternal life. (John 3:16-21)  “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.  He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.  And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.  For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds be exposed.  But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”  

So for your new year resolution get to know Jesus Christ and give life to a real purpose.

Yours in Christ’s love, heartfulandhopefull

Journey with God

In this life there are many trials, tribulations, and hardships. Without God at the helm, we find ourselves at a loss for hope and peace that fills us and gives us something to live for. This blog is a place for me to share the hope God gives me despite the circumstances I face and to extend that hope and love to others. May it be an inspiration and blessing to your heart!
