The Prodigal Son (6/16/2019)

Luke 15:11-32New International Version (NIV) - biblegateway.comThe Parable of the Lost Son11 Jesus continued: “There was a man who had two sons.12 The younger one said to his father, ‘Father, give me my share of the estate.’ So he divided his property between them. 13 “Not long after that, the younger son got together all he had, set off for a distant country and there squandered his wealth in wild living.14 After he had spent everything, there was a severe famine in that whole country, and he began to be in need.15 So he went and hired himself out to a citizen of that country, who sent him to his fields to feed pigs.16 He longed to fill his stomach with the pods that the pigs were eating, but no one gave him anything. 17 “When he came to his senses, he said, ‘How many of my father’s hired servants have food to spare, and here I am starving to death!18 I will set out and go back to my father and say to him: Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you.19 I am no longer worthy to…

Have Faith by Derrick W. Jackson 6/4/2019

Faith according to Merriam Webster is the belief and trust in and loyalty to God.

1. Matthew 17:20 - So Jesus said to them, "Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, "Move from here to there," and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.  (God will give you what you need when you need it)

2. Hebrews 11 - Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.  For by it the elders obtained a good testimony.  By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made or things which are visible.

3, James 2:20 But do you want to know, o foolish man, that faith without works is dead?

Today's Art (6/3/19) Princess Diana by Derrick W. Jackson

I believe I drew this picture of Princess Diana in 2017.  The medium is ink.  Princess Diana had the adoration of millions from watching her Marry Prince Charles to her having Prince William and Prince Harry.  It sad day when she lost her life in the car accident when poparatzi was chasing her.  We all remember Prncess Diana.

Dealing with Loss, Grief, and Depression by Derrick W. Jackson (6/3/19)

Jesus said, "Lazarus Come Forth" and "Lose him and let him go"
"There is enough sleeping for the grave" - Derrick W. Jackson

1. John 11:43 And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a voice, Lazarus come forth.
2. John 11:44 And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with grave clothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin, Jesus said unto them, lose him and let him go.

The Story of Jonah

I went to lunch with a friend who I am working on a book with.  After lunch we got to talking about Jonah.  God had wanted Jonah to witness to people of Nineveh and he tried to hide from God.  Jonah got swallowed by a whale and was inside it for 3 days.  Sometimes we think our problems will overtake us but God has other plans.  Jonah 2:2 And said, I cried by reason of mine affliction unto the Lord, and he heard me; out of the belly of hell cried I, and thou heardest my voice.

Sometimes we have problems in life that seem to swallow us up but Jesus is always there even in our darkest hour.  We have to listen to what God is telling us.  We also have to know not to given up.  Jonah could have given up when he was inside the well but he cried out to God and God saved him.
