Strengthen What Remains ( Revelation 3:2 )

Background

I know people who are going through it.

Love them.

Mourn with them.

Yet, as a watchman, be direct and concise with them.

For those who are doing well, please continue to be the hands and feet of your heavenly father.

To those who are not doing well or who are not quite sure of how they should care the storm, please be expedient and fair as to what they will need to be on God’s good side and grace.
