=========================

Never alone...

"In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him,

and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths." -Proverbs 3: 6

We all feel alone at times. Even Jesus felt alone on the cross. Do you remember what he said when he was dying on the cross? "My God, My God, why have you forsaken me?" Why have you forgotten me, left me alone? But in the end, when it was done, he says, "Into Your hands, oh Father, I commend my spirit." So, even when he felt alone, when he had that feeling, the emotions of being alone, he knew deep down inside, in his heart and mind, that God's love in the end would win.

There's this mystery, right? Why do these bad things happen? And I just don't have a good answer. Someday, when we've gone further in life, we may look back and be able to say, yes, I understand. But what Believer living means is this: I'm stuck in a fog, I'm in this forest, I've been lost, and I don't know where to go. Every direction I go, I'm still lost and there are just more trees, more fog, and more darkness. Then all you see is a hand reaching into this fog and it is the hand of the Father. Being a Believer is like this, taking that hand, and letting that hand guide you.

You don't know where it will lead you. You don't know why it keeps dragging you through thorns and over rocks, and why these difficult things happen, but you hold firmly onto the divine hand of grace, and know that in the end this hand will lead you out of the woods. Being a believer is trusting in God's best and that His hand will always be there, leading the way.

Prayer: Dear Lord, thank you for showing me the way. You lead me in the direction that I should go, and I so appreciate your loving guidance. When I feel alone, I know you are there. Amen.

"I am what I am by the grace of God."

     A word of advice: Do not try to predict God's actions. In my own life experiences, I learned that God is very offended if somebody try to predict his actions. Even a small anticipation will enrage him. So pray but don't try to think too much of the result.

              I wanted to add a little story that happened to me on the bus the other day a young man around 20 got on my bus , he was smiling (me i was in one of my modes Disapprove) the young man said good morning i said good morning back (going to skip the preliminaries) the young man had just come from rehabilitation and i was like oh what for he proclaimed he had been shot 9 times i was in shock i told him he was blessed he sd everyone tells him that and he wanted to know why GOD had saved him i told him so that he could tell his story.... this was a testimony. 9 times and your walking your talking and you look healthy thats a blessing. Here is the kicker he wasnt a gang banger he wasnt out selling drugs not that ...naw i did think that i'm not going to lie (my sin i had to pray on that one lol) but he said his childs mother did u hear me thats what he said his childs mother not baby mama .... set him up over a check , if this is not crazy the person that shot him is in prison and made a deal so that they can charge her....God is good .....i told this young man i would pray for him and that he made my day ....

                Hi rhonda this is so sad that a young person maimed another. Yes, he was blessed. My elder neightbor always say that it just wasn't someone's time to go because there is something else here on earth for that person to do. Wholeheartedly I agree. All we can do is pray every day and count our blessings.Blue Angel

                             Nice thread .... to which I'd like to add one of my favourite songs:

                             

                              Our God is an AWESOME God

                              He reigns from Heaven above

                              With WISDOM, POWER and LOVE

                              Our God is an AWESOME God.

                             

                              When He rolls up His sleeve

                              He ain't just putting on the Ritz....

                              There's thunder in His footsteps

                              and lightning in His fists.

                             

                              And the Lord wasn't jokin'

                              When He kicked 'em out of Eden

                              It wasn't for NO REASON that

                              He shed his precious Blood

                             

                              His RETURN is VERY CLOSE

                              so you'd better be believing that

                              our God is an AWESOME GOD!

                             

                              And when the sky was starless

                              In the void of the night

                              He spoke into the DARKNESS

                              And He CREATED the L I G H T !!

                             

                              JUDGEMENT and WRATH He poured

                              out on Sodom

                              MERCY and GRACE He gave us

                              at the CROSS

                              I hope that we have not

                              too quickly forgotten that

                              our God is an AWESOME God !!

                             

                              Our God is an AWESOME God

                              He reigns from Heaven above

                              with WISDOM, POWER and LOVE

                              our God is an AWESOME GOD!!!!!!!

                             We all Luv to win ..... at least now 'n again!

                              Matt. 22: 21 -  Render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar's,

                                                      but unto the Heavenly Father, the things that are His.
