JESUS…THE HOPE OF THE WORLD!

By Anita Mondragon
 
Have you watched the news lately?  The world is at war.  Not only out-and-out war with one nation against another…but people in general are at war with their neighbors, friends, spouses, and family! Courts are full of divorce cases, domestic abuse, civil suites, assault, theft, rape, murder.  Fights springing up out of nowhere over petty things, ending up in murder.  Abuse of every kind-alcohol, drug, sexual, physical, verbal-all on the rise.  The world, and I’m talking about those that do not have the Hope of Jesus, is drenched in anger…rage.  They are living for the moment, casting up their dirt and mire, wallowing in self pleasures of today because they have no hope of a better tomorrow.

FOLLOW THE WHISPER!

By Anita Mondragon
Years ago, during one of my many rebellious times, while at work one day, I became momentarily distracted by something just outside my window.  As I watched, the cotton from a grove of Cotton Wood trees floated gently through the air.   You could faintly hear the quiet motion of the leaves rustling softly in the warm breeze.  It was a beautiful sight!  So calm and serene.

TOGETHER…FOREVER!

By Anita Mondragon
To those of you who know me well, you are acutely aware of my love of Country music.  It speaks to me, for it comes from the heart.  It is about life and love, and I can relate, for I have lived some of the sadness written in those lines.

HOLDING ON…BUT, TO WHAT?

By Anita Mondragon

For we have become partakers of Christ, if we hold fast the beginning of our assurance firm until the end -Hebrews 3:14

Then his wife said to him, “Do you still hold fast your integrity? Curse God and die!” -Job 2:9

You shall fear the LORD your God; you shall serve Him and cling to Him, and you shall swear by His name. -Deut. 10:20

But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good; -1 Thes. 5:21

Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful; -Hebrews 10:23
