“I was just thinking about a friend of ours.” Bethany looks at her lion friend.
“Who is that Bethany?”
“Her name is Christine. Several of her children have attended our class.”
“Oh yes I remember her. The last time I saw her she was very sad.”
“Many of her tribe didn’t want the baby in the village; they said the baby was cursed.
A tear falls from Judah’s eye. “How can a baby be a curse?”
“It is our fallen world Judah.” Bethany holds his paw. “Broken people have little hope.”
“But there was one who came to give hope to the broken. His light breaks through darkness.The Gospel of John talks about light: “A little while longer the light is with you. Walk while you have the light lest the darkness overtake you; he who walks in darkness does not know where he is going.” John 12:35
“Judah, We need some of that light during Co-Vid pandemic. There are some families who have lost many people to the disease. ”
We can’t be afraid though: “Say to those who are fearful-hearted, Be strong, do not fear! Behold your God will come with a vengeance.” Isaiah 35:4
“No, Judah, you are right we must hold fast to Jesus, because our Tomorrow is filled with eternal hope. ”
So many of us are dealing with uncertainty. Are you afraid? Ask God to help you be strong. The Bible says God will come and be with you in your dark and fearful times.
