Remember Him

When you are feeling alone,
Remember Him.

When you go hungry,
Remember Him.

When you are staring in the face of temptation,
Remember Him.

When your loved one has died,
Remember Him.

When you are falsely accused,
Remember Him.

When you are betrayed,
Remember Him.

When you are the victim of abuse,
Remember Him.

Remember Him for he has been there.
He was alone for forty days and nights.
He had gone without food and water.
Satan came before him in His weak moments and tempted Him many times.
He had been falsely accused of blasphemy.
His friends/loved ones betrayed Him and abandoned Him in my darkest hours.
He was abused and scorned, left to bleed to death.

Remember Him for with all this He still loved you so much He sacrificed his life for your forgiveness of sins.
Remember Him for He will always love you.

Symbol of Wheat

A symbol of life, prosperity and nourishment, wheat is the key ingredient in bread, often considered the staff of life. Wheat’s spiritual significance comes into play when Christians partake of Jesus’ body through the bread of communion, showing that the spiritual food received through faith sustains our mind and soul. Wheat also provides the metaphor “we reap what we sow”, reminding us that hard work has its rewards.

Symbol of the Starfish

According to legend starfish are reflections of stars in the sky inhabiting the ocean floor. Symbolizing rebirth, starfish have a remarkable ability for regeneration. If a starfish is cut in half, two starfish will grow. Also an illustration of equality and teamwork, each of the limbs of the starfish work together for the benefit of the whole.
