It seems everywhere I turn someone is showing me their new home or telling me about their wonderful trip … the fun they are having in retirement. This was such a blessing to me this morning. All I ever wanted in life is to have a family. The fact is that we have been placed on this earth for a purpose beyond ourselves. Your prayer doesn't have to be pretty or sound like one at your church.
For neither circumcision counts for anything nor uncircumcision, but keeping the commandments of God. It was my wife, who rightly pointed out, that I needed to learn to pace myself in re-using muscles and tendons which have grown tight and weak due to under-use. Only God can use something so hurtful for His purpose and use if to bring people like me comfort. ~Meghan Thanks so much for your support, I truly appreciate it! One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to inquire in his temple. I feel guilty for wanting to wallow for just a little longer. But either way, I need to find a way to be at peace with the situation content in all circumstances?? As I am sitting day 4 after having my first solid meal I was reflecting on my week. Thank you so much for taking the time to share in your typing.
Bad things just keep coming and coming. I got my bachelors and masters degree and was so excited. I am thankful that He chose me. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. He has since had disappointment after disappointment while job searching.
The unfortunate incident - First conversation Two days earlier, sitting in our seats with seat belts fastened, we set out on the journey to Winnipeg. We have a home a job vacations church …… things are not how I want in family and relationships but God Has A plan!! God has been so good to me. I sincerely prayed about my dissapointment and asked God to take away my bitterness toward my children. Yet you have still a few names in Sardis, people who have not soiled their garments, and they will walk with me in white, for they are worthy. For years we couldnt find a way to get along.
In the midst of this, I shared with her about the moment just a few weeks ago when her son came to see her in the hospital and they shared a special hug. We need to speak it and learn scriptures as these because people including us our selfish and we all get hurt. It made me lose my ways of thinking that God knows exactly what will happen, especially since she has such strong faith and it just consumed her in pain so quickly. She was spouting out all her disappointments. He had gone through so much, overcome so much and he was now a star. Sorrow is better than laughter, for by sadness of face the heart is made glad.
Eventually you will see the whole picture. Isn't this every mothers' dream? I never talked this much to God or prayed as much as I have until I lost that person. She and her family would still be struggling in Pakistan and there would be no hope of improved education for the Pakistani girl child. I truly feel that in life, I lack nothing and yet, at times, I find the feeling of disappointment filling my heart. You wrote it in 2013 and it is still blessing many. I really believed He was gonna keep blessing me.
If it matters, you will make time. It burdens my heart to read your post. The mistake we make most often is that we expect a human Pastor to give us the relationship we desperately desire in God. We ought always to give thanks to God for you, brothers, as is right, because your faith is growing abundantly, and the love of every one of you for one another is increasing. She is upset that people decide to come to the funeral but they rarely saw them during the time my dad was alive. I loved her with all my heart, had a great plan for her future but now all is lost.
The material blessings we enjoy from day to day are temporary, but the spiritual blessings available to us in Christ encompass time and eternity, as well as material and immaterial things. Bringing these threads together, we see that a blessing is a statement of good will and happiness that is said about another, as well as the condition that fulfills those good words. You have the reputation of being alive, but you are dead. Colossians 3:23-25 - Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. Let him not seek circumcision. He loves us too much to let us go. Sometimes things simply do not work out the way we planned them, but even though it may be a regular ordeal, it is always disappointing to some degree.
