February 15th in the Year of Our Lord, 2021

Dear Brother and Sister,

I do not know where you are on the earth, nor do I know what you are going through. However, I know that this is the day that the Lord has made; therefore, we should rejoice and be glad in it. Whatever the day brings shall pass. The Lord Jesus Christ said to his disciples, John 16:21. ‘Whenever a woman is in labor she has pain, because her hour has come; but when she gives birth to the child, she no longer remembers the anguish because of the joy that a child has been born into the world.”

Whatever difficulties that we are going through today will pass. When the blessed day, the day of the Lord Jesus Christ comes, with all of his power and glory, we shall forget the struggles that we are presently enduring. That day shall be so blessed that all of our present worries and struggles shall be forgotten because our eyes will behold the Lord Jesus Christ. The people of this world are satisfied with a full stomach, material things, riches, children and grandchildren; however, I am not satisfied with these things. I will not be satisfied until I behold the face of the Lord Jesus Christ and become like him; not in his glory or power, but in the likeness of his nature. (cf. Psalms 17:14-15)

In Christ alone,
