Do you Long for Good News By Brenda Drake

There is so much hate and division in our world; with so many opportunities and issues where we can disagree with each other.  I say let us agree on what we can agree on.   Sometimes even that seems to be an impossibility; but we can choose to think on good things.  What is good?  To me, good is God, God’s Word, and the beauty of His creation. In troubling times I choose to think on good things.  I search for and long for good news.

Do you Long for Good News?

Do you long for good new instead of bad?
Have you nearly lost all the faith you thought you had?
Does the promise of tomorrow mar your today?
Do you wish peace would return and evil chased away?
If so, there is some Good News you may have heard before;
The future is in the hands of the Lord.
He has conquered evil although the world does show it.
The day soon comes when everyone knows it.
Pray for peace in the land.
Pray eyes will see and will hear God’s plan.
Until the earth’s harvest is done,
Your job is to trust and watch and plan for the return of God’s Son.
He that lived and died and lives forevermore,
Is King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
He who rose to sit at the Father’s side,
Soon returns to collect His bride.
Do you long for peace and joy to touch the earth I ask?
Then steadfastly look for the good and do not turn back.

John 14:27
 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

Luke 2:10
And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people

 Philippians 4:8-9
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.  Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.
