God Works All Things For Our Good

October 22, 2021

Sometimes we cannot see good in the situation we are in. Maybe it’s illness, accident, loss of a loved one. In our finite minds we can not understand why things are happening to us..

But, GOD will turn even the worst tragedies in our lives into something good if we will trust Him to bring it to pass. It may take time. Even months or years. Then we look back and we can see how He uses these tests in our lives and turns them into testimonies.

No Hope to Peace

February 27, 2021

Ephesians 2: 12b & 13 …..having no hope, and without God in the world: But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.

The Bible tells us that before we accepted Jesus as our Savior we were without hope, lost and on our way to spending eternity without God and Heaven.

But, after salvation, we are close to God through the blood of Jesus.

It Is Well With My Soul

February 18, 2021

This great hymn was written in a time of tragedy. The Spafford family had lost their small son in the same year 1871 as the Chicago fire. He also suffered financial problems due to the fire.

Hoping a voyage would ease the pain of loosing the son, Horatio sent his family on an ocean liner to Europe, planning to join them later.

Their 4 daughters died in the shipwreck (pictured above). His wife survived the wreck.

On his way to meet his grieving wife, passing the spot where his daughters died, Horatio G. Spafford wrote these words.

When peace like a river attendeth my way, When sorrows like sea billows roll, Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say, It is well, it is well with my soul. Chorus: It is well with my soul, It is well, it is well with my soul

And the peace of God which surpasses all understanding, shall keep your hearts, your minds through Christ Jesus. – Philippians 4:7.

Just Passing Through

January 18, 2021

There is a Christian song, ” This World is Not My Home, I’m just passing through.” We as Christians are traveling through life in this world. Sometime we have joys, hardships and challenges. Just like traveling for vacation, business or family occasions, trips can have ups and downs. Once our trip is over and we return home we are happy that our travels are over.

The same holds true on our journey toward heaven. What a joy that will be when we finally reach our Heavenly home. So as we travel through life keep our destination in mind. Joy awaits us in Heaven.

John 14:2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
