A season of thanksgiving

Jesus left the halls of heaven for us. And though He was rich, for our sakes He became poor, that we through His poverty might become rich. Jesus not only had to come down among us, but He had to be one of us! He had to become a member of the human community.

The best thing you can do when facing failure is to keep your mind on the Lord. Trust Him. I know God’s going to help you because you’re praying and we’re praying, and He answers our prayers.

We used to sing a little song about the Lord:

He gives me joy in place of sorrow,

Blessings come from suffering—”beauty for ashes” (Isaiah 61:3). This is borne out so well in Hebrews 12, verse 11, which says: “Now no chastening . . .  read more
