    It is so refreshing to know that we can rest in  the strength and comfort that God will provide when facing troubles of many  kinds. Let Him have the glory and show himself strong. Listen to this Bible  verse: 2Chronicles 16:9 For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro  throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose  heart is loyal to Him. In this you have done foolishly; therefore from now on  you shall have wars.” God wants to show Himself strong on your behalf.  Surrender to Him today and let the peace that He gives you take over. We cannot  fully serve God without full surrender to his Strength.

    Jesus Is With Me

                Jesus is with me every hour, every day,

                Guiding me, leading me,  showing the way.

                Since I decdied to believe on his name,

                Nothing in life has ever been the same.

                The addictions I suffered are soothed by his hand

                My anguish of heart drifted off like fine sand.

     

                I live every moment with guidance from above;

                Every part of my heart is squeezed full of God’s love.

                Once all was too hard and I despaired of all peace,

                But when I took His offer all despair was released.

                No problem today cannot be overcome;

                My job is to pray; God gets the rest done.

                What glorious relief to be under God’s shield—

                Why not, my dear friend, won’t you also yield?

                Give up your fight to keep walking alone;

                Submit to your Savior; He’ll welcome you home.

    Three Soldiers

    Sunday, April 14, 2013, 12:32 PM [General]
    Posted By: Bouncybaby

    In the cool predawn darkness, three battle-hardened Roman soldiers in full  armor are guarding Joseph’s tomb where Jesus was buried three days earlier.  Despite strict army regulations, they are talking softly, almost at a whisper,  between themselves.

    “All men die the same,” one mutters.

    This apathetic tone ignites a spark of anger from another. “Not like he did!”  was the intense whispering reply. “We spiked him to the cross-bar and hoisted it  onto the upright, but I’ll never forget the words that he said during his  execution.” Turning his head and looking at the others with fire in his eyes and  a narrowed brow, he said with slower more precise diction, “I was responsible  for killing him, and he forgave me!”

    A third insensitive voice quickly responds, “Haven’t you been a soldier too  long to be troubled by a guilty conscience?”

    The troubled guard continues to blurt out what he can no longer hold within  himself. “The thief next to him asked this Jesus from Nazareth to remember him.  Oh, his voice while in this nightmare of sure death and torture! He said, “Today  you will be with me in paradise,” and in that instant the sky grew dark.  Everyone felt the cold chill in the air then, like all the evil forces in the  world were gloating when he cried. He sounded like the loneliest man in the  world hanging there. The earthquake knocked me to the ground for a moment, and  then the darkness began to lift. That was no mere man I crucified I tell you. He  was more than just a mere man! Rarely a tomb is sealed as this one is, let alone  guarded.”

    In the dull light of the dawn, suddenly appears an angel enveloped within a  fiercely bright pure light painful to the eyes as if looking directly into the  high noon sun. The air reverberated like a crack of vicious thunder lifting the  three Roman soldiers off their feet and throwing them to the ground , rendering  them dumbfounded and motionless. Turning toward the six foot stone covering the  opening of the grave, this immensely strong creature rolls the stone away from  the entry of the tomb. The battle-hardened Roman soldiers sit there trembling,  each gazing in unbelief yet knowing they have all seen the same thing.

    “Sir! It’s gone! The body is gone!”

    “Shut your mouth soldier!” the other shouted, scrambling to his feet.

    “I tell you, he’s alive! What are we going to tell the Centurion?”

    “You didn’t see anything! We fell asleep or something! You don’t know  anything! Got it?” demanded the third.

    “But I do know, and I did see, Captain! Jesus is out there alive I tell you!  More than alive!”

    The other two begin shoving, slapping, and shouting at the believing soldier  with panic stricken voices, “Forget this ever happened, Marcus!”

    A shaky voice on the verge of tears replies, “Forget it if you can sir, but  with all due respect, Jesus is alive, and that changes everything.”
