Long for Good News? By Brenda Drake

            Christmas-time for many; is filled with joy, peace and hope as we remember our Savior’s
birth and reminded of the great gift of His sacrifice in our behalf.  But soon we are painfully assaulted with the daily news and again we shake our heads at the craziness of our times. 

Long Good News?

Do you long for good news 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 New you may have heard before,
The future is in the hands of the Lord.
He has conquered evil although the world does not show it,
The day comes soon when everyone knows it.
Pray for peace in the land.
Pray eyes will see and ears will hear God’s plan.
Until the earth’s harvest is done,
Your job is to pray, and to watch for the return of God’s Son.
He that lived and died and lives forever more;
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 14:27-29
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. You heard me say to you, I am going away, and I will come to you.’ If you loved me, you would have rejoiced, because I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I. And now I have told you before it takes place, so that when it does take place you may believe.
