We live in uncertain times. Many of us are looking for security. We want peace and safety for ourselves and our loved ones.
Perhaps you areÂ like Chelsea, from the childrenâ€™s article, and you know that you are in aÂ terrible mess. There is hope and peace and eternal security found in the LordÂ Jesus Christ. Often we try to find security in the wrong places like KellyÂ Clark initially did. Perhaps you will suddenly find yourself in dangerousÂ circumstances as did Scott Hayes and the Iraqi soldier. Potentially you mayÂ have a golf ball or another object f ly close to your head, reminding you thatÂ you need to consider your eternal future.
Eternity is real. If you accept the Lord Jesus Christ as your Saviour, youÂ can be sure of being with Him in Heaven, the place of peace and safetyÂ prepared for those who are saved. The only sure place of security is throughÂ a relationship with Godâ€™s Son.
We hope that you will enjoy all of the articles and that something youÂ read will help you to do more than give eternity your best shot.

Atrocities and tragedies abound. News headlines tell of heart-breaking events all over the globe. The world is in bad shape. How can we be secure in such troubled and uncertain times?
Call of God
I recently attended a reception to recognize the faithful dedication of two women, Marian Ronald and Daisy Hanna. As nurses they have each spent 50 years at the Loloma Mission in Zambia, Africa.
â€œItâ€™s a miracle you are alive,â€ the doctor said as she indicated the reports and x-rays showing water-filled lungs and low oxygen levels. Scott had proven that, â€œthere is but a step between me and deathâ€
An Iraqi Soldierâ€™s Prayer
My story begins in Northern Iraq where my family were part of a minority group known as Assyrian Christians. We were â€˜nominalâ€™ Christians â€“ Christians in name only.
Ty Parker was like any other 9 year old boy. He loved swimming, football, soccer, hunting, fishing, hockey, and air soft guns. He loved anything with a motor â€“ quads, dirt bikes, even the lawn mower. Ty could spend hours creating things with his Lego.
Bubbles have a way of bursting quickly, long before you want them to. Thatâ€™s the way so many pleasures in life are. One minute weâ€™re having fun and the next minute that fun is gone, leaving a sticky mess behind.
Chelsea Chased a What?
Dear Children, Grandma and I know that children like riddles, so here is a riddle for you. Tell me â€¦ What kind of dog is white â€¦ Has black spots all over it â€¦ And a light yellow spot on its forehead â€¦ And also smells like a skunk? Did you guess?
What Do You Know?
Whatâ€™s the most important thing you know? Itâ€™s a huge question! Education is a big part of our lives. We spend years going through elementary, middle, and high school, and then we are strongly encouraged to go to university or college.
Value of your life
What is your life worth? People donâ€™t ask this question often but it is worth considering.
The value of our life depends on who is doing the evaluation.
Kelly Clark â€“ Olympian Snowboarder
If you had no friends, no money, no success, no breaks in life, no significance and no future you could understand the dark feeling of being empty inside.
Someone is watching you!
Many times we are unaware of being watched, but security cameras are tracking our movements. When the bombs exploded at the Boston Marathon, police and other security forces were able to use security camera footage to reconstruct the event.
The Shiny Stone
For Erasmus Jacobs, it was just another day. As the 15 year old wandered near the river on his fatherâ€™s farm in South Africa, he noticed a stone shining in the sun.
Giving it your best shot
I was enjoying a brisk walk on a late February day. While admiring the spectacular beauty of Langley, British Columbia and appreciating the early spring blossoms appearing on the trees and the ducks peacefully swimming in the ditches, something flew past my head.
