Mothers for Prodigals

Is your world full of darkness, sin, gloom, confusion, anxiety, or any form of trouble? Within the murkiness, a beacon of light, offering hope and grace, shines through. It’s like a lighthouse rising above your storm. The lighthouse stands tall and ready to offer light amidst the waves that are crashing over you. Look up and receive the help offered you from the hand of the Savior who died in your place.

When you believe and receive the gift of grace, the cross of Jesus where a sweet exchange took place, He takes your dirty rags of sin and disease trading them for His clean cloak of righteousness and perfection. We are made right with God!

Freedom! The truth of God’s word, Jesus Christ, sets you free, completely free. You are free to throw your burdens upon the Lord (He already carried them to the cross) and walk in His peace. His resurrection from sin and death allows you to rise above your challenges on earth in His name, and one day rise to eternity with Him.

Victory in Jesus by Eugene Monroe Bartlett Sr.

I heard an old, old story,
How a Savior came from glory,
How He gave His life on Calvary
To save a wretch like me;
I heard about His groaning,
Of His precious blood's atoning,
Then I repented of my sins
And won the victory. 

O victory in Jesus,
My Savior, forever.
He sought me and bought me
With His redeeming blood;
He loved me ere I knew Him
And all my love is due Him,
He plunged me to victory,
Beneath the cleansing flood. 

I heard about His healing,
Of His cleansing pow'r revealing.
How He made the lame to walk again
And caused the blind to see;
And then I cried, "Dear Jesus,
Come and heal my broken spirit,"
And somehow Jesus came and bro't
To me the victory. 

I heard about a mansion
He has built for me in glory.
And I heard about the streets of gold
Beyond the crystal sea;
About the angels singing,
And the old redemption story,
And some sweet day I'll sing up there
The song of victory. 

O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?” The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law; but thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your toil is not in vain in the Lord. 1 Corinthians 15:55-58 (NASB)
