EASTER IS COMING. LOOK TO JESUS CHRIST. ONLY HE CAN GIVE US HOPE
By Pastor Max Solbrekken D.D.
An old Gospel song says: 'My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus' blood and righteousness. I dare not trust the sweetest frame but only lean on Jesus' name! On Christ, the Solid Rock, I stand. All other ground is sinking sand!'
Look Up – by Deborah Litke
The corona virus, a time you’ll not forget.
Touch no one, make your own fun.
A time to spend more time, to love everyone.
Stay at home out of the cold, catch up on work undone.
Lists that are long, stocks are down.
Go back to the old fashioned home.
Do the things mom always said,
Wash your hands !
Don’t panic you’re still free.
Look to God instead.
You can still gaze up to the blue sky overhead,
Study the stars, the super moon,
Pray to the creator of all, Master Designer.
He is the Potter, we are the clay
He knows this virus and all it entails.
His tears flow down.
Later you’ll appreciate the blessings
You took for granted.
Ones you had every day, the old fashioned values
Which really make all of us
Rich beyond compare.
The trees are budding, Easter is coming
The greatest signs of hope there are.
