Spiritual Sunday

singing birds

Though now for a season,if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations: that the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ.
1 Peter 1:6-7 KJV

Commentary:The weight of our burdens is always tipping us toward God's purposes for us. We are stumbling, but we are stumbling forward. We are tripping, but we are moving ahead. We are falling under the weight, but we are always falling forward so that we are farther along than we were.
Bishop David Evans
Bethany Baptist Church


An extra special Thank You to Charlotte and Ginger for hosting Spiritual Sundays.

It's His hold that always saves us! And to have that kind of hold, we know that we can always stand up again even when we fall.

God bless you.

HUMMMM!!!! I don't always feel like I am falling forward.....Sometimes I feel like I'm falling flat on my you know what! But maybe that is the perspective I should have. Falling Forward is better than Failing.

Have a great Sunday!
