The news is filled with it. It’s all over the world. People are turning on one another as seeds of suspicion are sown. When they take root, some turn that suspicion toward those close to them and others are overwhelmed with worry for those they love. In either case, it’s harmful and not necessary.
The tree of life (intimate relationship with God) is at hand, inspiring others to partake. God’s fruit (His qualities), evident in His children (the righteous-by His act, not ours), encourages others toward a relationship with God and the unashamed freedom it offers.
Rather than exerting all our efforts into making perfect lives for our children, which is impossible, let’s instead stand on faith when things go awry. When our children face the many difficulties that life will introduce them to, it would be most important that they know Who to turn to and Who to lean on for strength and peace. God is the only One who can help them endure and thrive.
I love to tell the story of Jesus and His love, of how wonderful a personal relationship with Him is, and the strength and power He imparts when we trust in Him. I share some of the messages God has put on my heart through video. Check them out here.
