Good morning. Praise God and happy Sunday morning! Start your day off right. Jesus Christ, the ultimate teacher, taught the deepest lessons of personal sacrifice, life and the meaning of our suffering. His words:
““God blesses those who are poor and realize their need for him, for the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs. God blesses those who mourn, for they will be comforted. God blesses those who are humble, for they will inherit the whole earth. God blesses those who hunger and thirst for justice, for they will be satisfied. God blesses those who are merciful, for they will be shown mercy. God blesses those whose hearts are pure, for they will see God. God blesses those who work for peace, for they will be called the children of God. God blesses those who are persecuted for doing right, for the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs. “God blesses you when people mock you and persecute you and lie about you and say all sorts of evil things against you because you are my followers. Be happy about it! Be very glad! For a great reward awaits you in heaven. And remember, the ancient prophets were persecuted in the same way.” (Matthew 5:3-12 NLT)
I pray that the Lord’s words be a blessing unto you. May it cause you to have renewed faith and assurance in your life’s journey. You may be suffering now but you can and will reap the rewards if you trust in and stay with God. Allow him to guide your journey as you travel your path of life. Let the Beatitudes heal you and strengthen you. Have a great day. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
Sincerely with love,
