Today Reminder - 29 March 2013 (Puzzles)

A reminder for today
So he said: "Out of the one who eats came something to eat; out of the strong came something sweet."
Three days later they were still trying to figure it out. (Judges 14:14)

Samson gave a riddle to his guests and it totally puzzled them for days. Do we stand in life on our journey puzzled about what to do or where to go or even why things happen to us? 

My dear friend, when all is in turmoil and you feel like the end of your strength is very close. Listen to this: Then the angel spoke to the women. "Don't be afraid!" he said. "I know you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He isn't here! He is risen from the dead, just as he said would happen. Come, see where his body was lying. (Matthew 28:5-6). In these words lies the secret to life. Jesus rose from the dead giving life to us in abundance. The enemy will try anything to steal that gift from you. When the waves get to high, look up, when the burden gets to heavy, look up, when the road seems impossible, look up, and when you have come to the end of your rope, look up at the empty cross of a risen Jesus and know this. He died to save you out of love and a love like that will not abandon you nor put you on a path that you cannot travel. A love like that only seeks what is best for you even when it puzzles you. 

So now you know that there is no puzzle in life, but only Jesus Christ. Seek His presence and His comfort and His peace for your journey and no matter how large or heavy it gets, you will always end up riding the waves home to the shore or salvation.

Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus.
