don't be fooled

"Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith..."  1 Peter 5:8-9

Every time i turn around, someone is trying to snuff the JOY out of CHRISTmas.  The latest ploy --- billboards.
Knowing his days are numbered, the devil is on a fierce roll.  He is feverishly attacking and pursuing believers, with lies  to draw God's children away from the Light. And what better time for him to stoke up the fires of deception than during our most JOYous season.

But i am getting better... and wiser.

My eyes are fixed on another sign that is far more powerful, one based on Truth. A right life is not about being good, for we can never be good enough. Instead, it's based on the grace of God poured out generously and lavishly on all who come to Him and have a relationship with Him. It's produces eternal benefits, not because of what we do but because of what He did.
Be wise and keep your JOY; we have much to celebrate with our Father.  Only God is good, and He has us covered.

"And the God of grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will Himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. To Him be the power for ever and ever. Amen." 1 Peter 5: 10-11

friend, we are loved and chosen by God,
