Just some stuff

Post by ReverendThom » Sat Feb 03, 2018 11:38 pm

Originally I had put this in useless facts. Then I thought perhaps some of you need to hear this in a different way.

I was just struck tonight by how good God is, and how he will use the least and most broken of us for his purposes.

Amen.

Not just some stuff, Mike.
Awfully good stuff.

Your ministry is especially important now.

nice

[EDIT] Do you ever go back and visit your 'Babies' thread in the prayer room? There's a 10 or 12 month stretch of your life, condensed in to a 15 minute read, that shows the ups and downs, ins and outs of the life of His children. It's an extraordinary tale simply because it's so ordinary. We don't have it easy and we won't lack trials. But often, when we look at the long view, we see things working for good.

Yes! All the time. I keep meaning to tell the mods to move here under testimonies now, as that's what I became with you folks right beside me.

Wow I reckon! May the name of the Lord ever be praised!
Seek the Lord while he may be found; call upon him while he is near; let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord, that he may have compassion on him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. Isaiah 55:6,7 ESV

Praying and also very, very thankful for your faithful prayers for my son.
