When the world around us persists with sorrow, grief, loss, and hardly any good news, faith may waiver, under the weight of life. However, this is the time to lay aside every weight, and even more, a time to keep your mind on Jesus, who is the Author and Finisher of our faith. We have the encouragement from a cloud of witnesses, whose stories testify of their victory through their faith in the Lord. We also are surrounded by a cloud of witnesses who are in need of faithful testimonials, as well as, in need of faithful examples. When we are burdened with the cares of life, seeking understanding for the suffering within and without, let us focus on Jesus, looking upon Him, who even endured the shame and passion of the cross, and in His suffering, He looked beyond the shame, with the joy that would come with His victory. If we endure the sufferings of the present age, then we know that the suffering here is not worthy to be compared to the future glory we hope for, which God has clearly promised us. So, cast your weight of cares upon Jesus. He can bare them for you, because His burden is light, and His yoke is easy-just have faith to the end. Wait on the Lord, sisters and brothers, looking to Him, rather than at the troubles which abound. He is willing and able to deliver, comfort, help and strengthen us. Keep your eyes upon Him and He will sustain you. And, so, let your light continue to be bright and to shine, so those who do not know Him or do not have the faith and relationship with Him, may be encouraged by your faithfulness, and see your good works, amid all the evils, and come to Jesus, learn to cast their burdens upon Him, and glory in His love and care.

Holistic Ministries Inc. hopes to fellowship with you. We hope you will join us very soon to worship, fellowship, and learn of the goodness of Jesus. We believe salvation is an individual journey and that God’s people perish for a lack of knowledge. Jesus came to set us free; His burden is light and His yoke is easy. He already paid the cost for our salvation - when you believe in your heart and confess with your mouth that He is Lord and that God raised Him from the dead, then you are saved! (Romans 10:9)
