Those who serve Jesus obediently will be persecuted, abused, threatened and attacked. Are you in trouble for spreading the light of Jesus into the shadowy world of sin?

Are you depressed now? WELL, DON”T BE!!

“The reason I can {still} find hope is that I keep this one thing in mind:

the Lord’s mercy.

We were not completely wiped out.

His compassion is never limited.

It is new every morning.

His faithfulness is great.

My soul can say, ‘The Lord is my lot {in life}.

That is why I find hope in him.’

The Lord is good to those who wait for him,

to anyone who seeks help from him.

It is good to continue to hope and wait silently

for the Lord to save us.

Even if he makes us suffer,

he will have compassion in keeping with the richness of his mercy.”

(Lamentations 3:21-26, 32 God’s Word)
