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?Continue reading Why BeYeGlad? | Blessings ❤
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.Continue reading I Believe
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.Continue reading This is My Father’s World
When the fullness of time came,

that we might receive
the adoption as sons.
Galatians 4:5 NASB

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.Continue reading Explaining the Unexplainable

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 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.Continue reading Why a Loving God Allows Suffering
While praying for the sick and infected this thought came to me, “What if the COVID-19 virus is the judgment of God on the nations?” Is it God’s will to heal and help? To sustain bodies and spirits? Continue reading Is God Judging Us?

All to Him I owe;
Sin had left a crimson stain –
He washed it white as snow. Continue reading Jesus Paid It All
The love of God is a BIG subject. It would take an infinite amount of series to cover it all. To narrow the topic down I am exploring the question is God’s love conditional or unconditional. These two words are not found in the Bible. Continue reading God Found a Way
