A Good Friday message

With all of the turmoil in the world and the various hardships that some of us face it can be hard to remember the big picture. On this Good Friday I hope that everyone can take a moment to remember the great sacrifice that was made on our behalf and ponder what it means for us.

Falling behind on a mortgage, losing a job, devaluation of a stock portfolio, lack of food for our family...these struggles can consume us, engulf us, and send us into a state of despair. By remembering what God sent us in the gift of his son, and Jesus's sacrifice so that we may have eternal life with the Father, is the antidote for this despair and the salvation we seek.

Not everyone that reads this may be a Christian so I know that there are different points of view on what I write, but being that this is Good Friday it is an important day in Christian lives, and I am compelled to share my thoughts. Be thankful, be open to the message and the miracles, and with faith in Him, all things are possible. Cast off the doubt of tomorrow and use the gifts God gave you to better yourself and the lives of your family, for today, we celebrate the gift of all gifts, the sacrifice that changed the world. God Bless.
