A Devotional Video Called: Waiting for the New based on Isaiah 43:19 (NASV)


The Good News is that Jesus did what we could never do….

The reality of Christ coming and dying in the flesh!

It is about Him, not us.

It’s about  the fact that no wisdom can save us, no signs or wonders can elevate us, there is nothing—-nothing—-we can do, or achieve, or demonstrate, that can make us holy enough, deserving enough, to be saved.  Nothing can save us.

Only Christ come in real human flesh, dying in the ultimate way, in view for all to see, humiliated, Christ—-God Himself—-doing what we could never do, being what we can never be.  For those of us who will accept what we could never gain——receiving mercy and grace that we never deserved!”

As an amateur poet, I reflect upon how my emotions and my faith flutter during times of trial, and so I wrote this poem I call EACH TIME.  I hope it resonates with and encourages you. The words are below.

John Elzinga

Each time I meet a trial
Each time I’m caught off guard
Each time I reach the bottom
Each time I wonder why?

Each time I feel alone
Each time that I am hurt
Each time the loss is great
Each time I wonder why?

But each time I know the answer
Yet each time I seem surprised
God is in control of all things
He will take care of things in time.

Each time my faith is weak
Each time I realize
God’s grace comes in His patience
As He comes to me each time.

He comes to me each time
To remind me that He cares
He comes to me each time
To tell me that He’s there.

And In the weakness of my faith
In the frailty of my trust
Although I don’t deserve it
He rescues me, each time.

So, don’t worry about your weakness
Or be scared about your doubt
Weak or strong, frail or not
God loves and rescues us, each time.
