  • July 11, 2014 - Reflections

    By Jean S. Horner
    The other day while walking down a corridor in a public building, I saw what appeared to be someone walking toward me. On coming closer, I found it was my own reflection in a huge mirror.

March 17, 2011 - God's Promises

By Patrick J. Donadio

A few days ago I was reading in Isaiah, specifically Isaiah 46:3,4:

“Listen to me, O house of Jacob, all you who remain of the house of Israel, you whom I have upheld since you were conceived, and have carried since your birth. Even to your old age and gray hairs I am he, I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you” (NIV).

These verses deal with “security.” I would admonish you to read this passage for yourself and hide these words in your heart.

“Security” is a very prominent word in our country at the present time. We constantly hear comments about “national security,” “Homeland Security,” “airport security,” “financial security” and, of course, “Social Security.” The media reminds us constantly that nothing is 100 percent secure, but “we are making it as secure as we can.” And that is all we can expect anyone to do. Of course, the best we can do is not always enough. In 1929 financial security evaporated overnight, and some were so distraught they committed suicide.

You can depend on the security promised in Isaiah. When God makes a promise, He can and will keep it! The best security the world has to offer still tends to fluctuate, but the security God promises is constant and lasting.
