Why BeYeGlad? | Blessings ❤

HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED why the name of this blog is BeYeGlad? Sometimes what is written is nothing to be glad about. Like a few posts ago. I wrote about depression. How does this fit with the general theme of this blog? It gets confusing. Right?

I Believe

Photo by James Wheeler
I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth; 
And in Jesus Christ His only Son our Lord;
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, dead, and buried;
He descended into hell;
the third day He rose again from the dead;
He ascended into heaven,
and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty;
from thence He shall come to 
judge the living and the dead. 
I believe in the Holy Spirit; 
the Holy Catholic* Church;
the communion of the saints;
the forgiveness of sin; 
the resurrection of the body;
and the life everlasting.
Amen.

This is My Father’s World

Photo by eberhard grossgasteiger
This is my Father's world,
And to my list'ning ears,
All nature sings,
and round me rings
The music of the spheres.
This is my Father's world, 
I rest me in the thought
Of rocks and trees,
of skies and seas-
His hand the wonders wrought.

This is my Father's world,
The birds their carols raise;
The morning light, the lily white
Declares their Maker's praise.
This is my Father's world.
He shines in all that's fair;
In the rustling grass
I hear Him pass, 
He speaks to me ev'rywhere.

This is my Father's world,
O let me ne'er forget
That though the wrong seems oft so strong
God is the Ruler yet.
This is my Father's world,
The battle is not done;
Jesus who died shall be satisfied,
And earth and heaven be one.

In the Fullness of Time

When the fullness of time came,
God sent forth His Son,
born of a woman,
born under the Law,
so that He might redeem those
who were under the Law,
that we might receive
the adoption as sons.
Galatians 4:5 NASB

Explaining the Unexplainable

Our dog Bean loves stuffed animals. When he gets a new one, he trots around with it in his mouth so happy. But what he loves most is shredding them! We are amazed if a stuffy lasts 2-3 days. Most stuffies last only a few hours. When this happens we have to take his plaything away or he eats the cotton insides.

Miracle-Workers and Healing

Thy Word is a Lamp to my feet.  Psalm 199:105

Several years ago while studying the gospel of John, I came to an understanding of today’s healing and miracle-workers. I never wondered again about contemporary healing and miracles. It was Continue reading Miracle-Workers and Healing

Dear Friend — In a word our ultimate hope is Jesus. Maybe you don’t know Jesus, personally. Maybe you wonder why He is considered the ultimate hope, above all others. Or perhaps you do know Jesus and in your Continue reading The Ultimate Hope

Why a Loving God Allows Suffering

Photo by Karol D

Why does a loving God allow suffering? Inadvertently, a past post answered this question, at least in part. To begin with it must be understood that people, not God, are the source of suffering. God created a perfect world. The first man and woman though warned, disobeyed God.1 The result of this choice brought suffering, misery and pain to their world and ours.

What Happened to the Gospel?

Something disturbing has happened in evangelical churches. At one time the gospel message was central to their teaching and outreach; today something else has taken its place. Continue reading What Happened to the Gospel?
