Pastor’s Corner: Rejoicing in the Heavenly Blessings

Family Life Christian Center

In Jeremiah 31:13, we hear God saying:  “I will turn their mourning into gladness; I will give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow.”

God wants His people to live happy victorious lives.  We are not to spend our days in frustration over things that have no eternal value.

Our Lord takes those things that grieve our hearts and turns them around.  Mourning becomes gladness and sorrow turns to comfort.  Joy and peace are our companions.

Shout for joy and rejoice in the heavenly blessings of the Lord.  There is always hope for the future when we worship, honor and serve the Lord our God.  You will experience His closeness and presence as He gets your life back on track!
