"The most important of life's battles is the one we fight daily in the silent chambers of the soul."

Don't get trapped by discouragement and sorrow! It will paralyze everything. Memories can be wonderful, but you can't live on them! Make the memories effective in your life. So we experience it and grow it.

Make the memory of Christ so personal that it is like praying without ceasing. It becomes our very nature. Eventually, the emblems won't be needed. We experience Christ completely. We may or may not see Christ on Earth. But we can and must experience Him. For in Him we live, and move and have our being.

Hebrews 10:22 let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water.

To be 100% certain of who we are and where we belong is something that most people seek, yet sadly few find. Full assurance of faith means that as children of God we can trust and depend upon Him to do all that He says. It is a matter of faith.

Faith represents the washing and cleansing of the body as the Holy Spirit sweeps over the Believer’s life.

It is the same with my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to,and it will prosper everywhere I send it.

Isaiah 55:11 NLT (New Living Translation)

What a wonderful message and so full of truths. His promises are a comfort to me because I know I can trust Him completely. I can't trust myself but I rely on the Lord to reveal hidden things within my heart.

The closer we get to Him, the stronger our faith. The more immovable we become when weathering the storms. There's no better or safer placed to be than close to the Father.

Thank you for this message. Beautiful!

A universal message:
...'For in Him we live, and move and have our being...'
I fully agree with you Lance.If we develop full faith in Him then...'the emblems won't be needed. We experience Christ completely...'
Thanks for sharing a noble post.
God bless.

(As if you didn't already know) that post was given through you for MY benefit. For I have not been given the strength to "count it all joy" {James 1:2}; but in being made so weak: I do get to experience the faithfulness of our Heavenly Father on a continuous basis {1 Corinthians 10:12-13}. Thank you for being such a good and faithful servant.
