By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command,
so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.
Por la fe entendemos que el universo fue formado por la palabra de Dios,
de modo que lo visible no provino de lo que se ve.
Hebreos 11:3 (NVI)
“I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.”
~ Charles Dickens
When they saw the star, they rejoiced exceedingly with great joy.
Every year we celebrate the holy season of Advent, O God.
Every year we pray those beautiful prayers of longing and waiting,
and sing those lovely songs of hope and promise.
The Parable of the Net
“Once again, the kingdom of heaven is like a net that was let down into the lake
and caught all kinds of fish.
When it was full, the fishermen pulled it up on the shore.
Then they sat down and collected the good fish in baskets,
but threw the bad away. This is how it will be at the end of the age.
The angels will come and separate the wicked from the righteous
and throw them into the blazing furnace,
where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth”.
God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
He says, “Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth.”
Let your hopes,
not your hurts,
shape your future.”
– Robert H. Schuller
