FORERUNNER

Good Morning!

Good morning 2                               In this last week before we once again enter the remembering phase of the coming of the Saviour, may golden rays of Hope and Peace brings blessings into your life.  A-men.

A thought to contemplate.   The word forerunner  in the 2nd century AD was used for the small boats sent into harbour by larger ships unable to enter due to the buffeting of the weather.   These boats carried the anchor through the breakers inside the harbour and dropped it there securing the larger ship.   Forerunner also pre-supposes others will follow.      Jesus Christ is like the runner boat that has taken our soul and anchored it in the harbour.    This is confirmed in  Hebrews 6 v19:20.

   The Hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the Presence behind the veil where the forerunner has entered for us.  Jesus now has become High Priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek. (eternal).

What a glorious thought to ponder as this week unfolds.   Accepting Jesus as Saviour loving Him, and following Him has gained for us a relationship with Abba God the Father that is anchored by Christ in eternity.

ANCHOR OF MY SOUL

ANCHOR

Carry this thought with you as you travel into a new week of Hope and possibilities.

You are LOVED.

 

About Faye

I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions. I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.
