There is beauty surrounding us in nature in everything from the tiniest grain of sand to the vast expanse of the sky.
The Lord is always there with comfort for those who call upon His name.
Regardless of your situation in life you can partake in God’s manifest destiny for mankind—eternity in His presence.
The planet on which God places us came pre-stocked with everything needed to sustain human life.
We can all have faith in our Father and that faith can sustain us through good times and bad.
Those marvelous building blocks were used by God to create us in His image.
There is never a situation in life that is so dark that a glimmer of hope is not present.
All humans can have an intimate personal relationship with God. We need have no intermediary between Him and us.

There is One true God who has made Himself known to us and cares about our well-being.
Prayer is communication with our Father in heaven—a direct “telephone” line to Him that requires no service contract.
We are able to come to Jesus who can quench our thirst forever. (John 4-14—But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.)
