“For Such a Time as This!” Esther 4:14 – Give Up and Step Up for Lent!

“For Such a Time as This!”

Esther 4:14

Yesterday began the season of Lent.  It was also Valentine’s Day when everyone thinks about love and hearts and flowers. It is interesting that Lent began on a day dedicated to love.  There is not greater love than the love Jesus Christ has for you.  There is no greater love!

Stay close to the Lord.  Pray a mighty hedge of protection around you and your family daily. Seek Him.  Seek His peace.  Seek His Kingdom.

Daily Inspiration-Life Does Not Have to Be Perfect to Be Wonderful! Seek Ye First…

If you are looking for perfection you will be sadly disappointed.  No thing and no person in life is “perfect.”  However, if you are settled in your heart (and it is always a heart issue) you will find life is about as close to perfect as possible.  You will have a peace that surpasses all understanding despite what may be swirling around you at the moment.

Pray without ceasing.  Live holy.  Be responsible.  Put God first and all else will fall into place.   Life does not have to be perfect to be wonderful!
