In Praise of All Things

This may seem like an odd post, but I keep thinking on this and I must blog my thoughts.They focus our good outcome in the court case.

If this guy had not started cutting trees on that little 1.1899 acres and crossed over the property lines to damage our trees, I would never had investigated and ended up owning the 1.1899 acres.

It is like the Lord tells us in His Word.

All things work together toward good for those that love God, for those that are called for His purpose.

When I read this I know that is a promise that whatever happens in life, no matter how bad it might seem or even trivial it may be, the end outcome will be for your good.

Even someone cutting down $ 8450.00 worth of your trees.

This goes for all things, He tells us, in His Word.

Loosing someone loved or admired. Being defrauded or misused.

Even getting snubbed by another blogger, which is just a trivial matter but on my mind because of things I have read recently. Often we want to blow off at the mouth. I know I have before.

But if we stand back and reflect for a moment. We can look at such things and know it is for good!

Sometimes we don’t see the good of matters in this life, but many times we do.

I can not even begin to tell of some of the good I have seen right here and now! Some things that the Lord opened up to me and certainly not of my own knowledge.

We can know that whatever we don’t see in this life, we will see in the hereafter.

Thank you Lord!

    You know that you are so right. We have to patient and know that God is always in control.

    We have a precious couple at church. The husband has throat cancer that started, they say, in his tonsils. He (50 years) had to have all his teeth pulled to have the radiation done, he has had to have a feeding tube put in because his tongue and throat are so sore he cannot eat. Yet they are hanging in there together, dragging themselves to church when they can, praising God through this, and whether he makes it or not, they are doing everything they can here on earth, and letting God take care of the rest.

    We have a pager system at church. Mike has the pager. When we call his number, he knows that we are praying for him. He says it is so reassuring when he feels that buzz of the pager, when he’s at his lowest–to be buzzed and knowing someone is talking to God about him.

    God is in control.

    Yes jancd, and something like a sickness or death must be the hardest place to keep your faith.

    It is good your church has that pager system to help keep up anothers faith.
