1 Thessalonians 1:2-3

We always give thanks to God for all of you and mention you in our prayers, constantly remembering before our God and Father your work of faith and labour of love and steadfastness of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.


Devotion by Lynne Buell

Our attitude regarding life tends to form our future.  If we see the imminent days, months, and years ahead with dread and dismay, we’re more than likely going to live in constant fear and anxiety and shrink from an existence of wellbeing.

As I continue the road of my faith journey, I become more aware of prophets’ accounts of upcoming events.   When I did a little research about 1 Thessalonians, one of the events mentioned was The Second Coming of Jesus Christ.  No one knows when this will happen, but God does.  In the meantime, throughout the Bible we are told how to live according to God’s will.  So basically, the question I ask myself is:  If Jesus comes back during my lifetime, how will I be judged?  The truth is, I am a better person now than I was 7 years ago.  But then again, there is still a lot of room for improvement.


Loving God,

I am turning to you for help and taking time for self-reflection, because I want to be a better person in the future than I am right now.  Amen.
