Rely on Jesus.

1Another time he went into the synagogue, and a man with a shriveled hand was there. 2Some of them were looking for a reason to accuse Jesus, so they watched him closely to see if he would heal him on the Sabbath. 3Jesus said to the man with the shriveled hand, "Stand up in front of everyone."
4Then Jesus asked them, "Which is lawful on the Sabbath: to do good or to do evil, to save life or to kill?" But they remained silent.
5He looked around at them in anger and, deeply distressed at their stubborn hearts, said to the man, "Stretch out your hand." He stretched it out, and his hand was completely restored. 6Then the Pharisees went out and began to plot with the Herodians how they might kill Jesus.
(Mark 3:1-6)

When life deals you a bad hand, you still can win. If you have Jesus, what you do with the hand determines your success. How do you handle it? Do you walk away from God? Number one, stay in the game with Jesus and do not quit. This game is life, stand in the game of life and do not be afraid of situations. Stand and do what God told you to do. Do not be a coward. If you do not stand, it is over; be who you are. Stretch forth, give it to God. Whatever the problem, Jesus can fix it. Jesus restores, whatever your needs are. Stand when things are not popular and he can handle life’s bad hands. With Jesus, we will always have a winning hand.

“I must rely on You, Lord, in everything that I do, for I know with absolute certainty that Your words are trustworthy and true. My trust in You must not falter as my strength is drawn from You. You give me the power and courage to conquer each day anew. To live my life for you, Lord, is to keep you in my heart and to make you the Master of my soul, knowing that you will never depart. Let all that is within me give You praise and glory each day, and may I never fail to thank you for the blessings sent my way.”

Peace and love,


"Then Jesus said to them all: "If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me". (Luke 9:23)
