Remember the Good News…

ultimate

I feel that the posts I’ve posted recently have dealt with really heavy, heartbreaking topics. Though these things need to be discussed at times, let us not ever forget the good news amidst our bad: for those who believe, Jesus has SAVED us from hell and is preparing a place for us in heaven! What’s more, He will walk with us every step of the way.

May we always keep this precious truth close to our hearts. ❤

Have a blessed week!

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” (Philippians 4:8, KJV)

Putting Our Hope in the Lord: Remembering Who He Is

“Why, my soul, are you downcast?
Why so disturbed within me?
Put your hope in God,
for I will yet praise him,
my Savior and my God.

My soul is downcast within me;
therefore I will remember you
from the land of the Jordan,
the heights of Hermon—from Mount Mizar.”
(Psalm 42:5-6, NIV)

 

Hi friends. It is no secret that I have asked for prayer for the Chibok girls, and for the release of Leah Sharibu.

It seems I have been praying and praying for their release for what seems like forever… and it is hard to keep hoping. But the Lord convicted me with the question, “What is your hope in?” Continue reading

A Call to Remember

According to CNN, the Boko Haram has kidnapped 185 more women, boys and girls and killed 32 from the town of Gumsuri, Nigeria. This news comes in light of reports that the Boko Haram has been cruelly killing elderly people from the Gwoza area.

There are no words to describe the horror of such reports. There are no words to express the frustration and the disappointment felt by this news. Each new wave of reports heralding such corruption and nightmarish sin can easily cause the observer to lose hope.

Yet, there is a call to stand firm in the fight to bring the Chibok girls, as well as these new kidnappees, back home. Continue reading

Day 245: Refusing to Forget

With a heavy, yet hopeful heart, I write today– the 245th day of the 273 Chibok girls’ captivity– that you’d be praying earnestly for the release or escape of these precious girls to come soon.

It’s been 245 days too long that their loved ones have had to go without their beloved daughters, sisters, and friends. It’s time to bring them home. God is working; His promises ring true, no matter what day it is.
Join with me in prayer–

We refuse to let these precious girls be forgotten.

“I have posted watchmen on your walls, Jerusalem;
    they will never be silent day or night.
You who call on the Lord,
    give yourselves no rest,
and give him no rest till he establishes Jerusalem
    and makes her the praise of the earth.” 
(Isaiah 62:6-7, NIV)
