PEACE IN THE STORM

PEACE IN THE STORM

I have shared with you on this subject before.
But today we are in the middle of another storm in 
our little family and seeing the "peace" at work in 
the middle of it makes me want to share again.

My wife is much younger than myself.  She is 
only 76, but insists on working everyday.  She has
her own little cleaning business and works daily,
but now days has been coming home very tired.

After checking with her doctor they found that part
of her heart was not getting the blood flow it 
needed.  So, yesterday was the day to take her to
the hospital to get things "fixed".

She told me two different times before we went
to the hospital that she had complete peace about
the whole thing.  She had placed it in God's hands.
And I could see that.  She was as peaceful and content
as if we were just going out to eat somewhere.

It ended up that she had one artery 100% blocked 
and two that 90 some % blocked.  So, if God is 
willing they will be installing two "stints" to help
regain the necessary blood flow today.

When I left her at the hospital last night she was
still just as peaceful and content as when we left
for the hospital earlier in the day.

How can this be?
Over forty years ago she begin a personal relationship
with Jesus Christ.  She invited Christ into her heart and
submitted to his lordship.  And he has given her "a peace
that passes understanding".

 Just a historical knowledge or an intellectual knowledge
of Jesus Christ simply will not do it.  You have to get
into a "real" relationship with him.  Get your knowledge
of him out of your head and down into your heart.

Jesus said,
"Peace I leave with you;
My peace I give to you not as the 
world gives do I give to you."
(John 14:27 NASB)  

My wife has needed and experienced that peace
may times in the storms of her life.  And you know
that life will bring you storms.  You can have that
same peace.  Get yourself a "Holy Bible" and learn
about the love that Jesus Christ has for you.

WHEN NOTHING BECAME SOMETHING



Seven trillion three hundred and 23 million
years and seven months ago, before time 
begin, so much nothing accumulated that a
horrendous implosion took place sending
tremendous shockwaves through out the
vastness of nothing.  The accumulated
nothing is estimated at about one million two
thousand and one inches of mercury, on the
vacuum scale, to cause the implosion.

But at the core of the implosion was left one
quark.  As soon as scientists find out how that
one quark was able to multiply by it's self to three
quarks making a neutron, then they will under-
stand how evolution works.

In the meantime they will continue to hand you
a line of baloney about creation.

WHY UNANSWERED PRAYER



Just like yourself,
I have heard for years that all prayers are answered.
You know, some are yes, some are no, some are wait.

But is it that simple?
I read this the other day when reading out at my
hide out.  It was very quiet and peaceful.  I was
having a good time reading God's word when
He threw this at me.

"Behold, the Lord's hand is not so short
That it cannot save;
Nor is His ear so dull
That it cannot hear.
But your iniquities have made a separation
between you and your God,
And your sins have hidden His face from you
so that He does not hear."
(Isaiah 59:1,2 NASB)    

Ouch!

"If you do not worship God seven days a week,
you do not worship Him on one day a week.
There is no such thing known in heaven as
Sunday worship unless it is accompanied by
Monday worship and Tuesday worship and
so on."
-A.W. Dozer

WATCH WHAT YOU SAY.

"Death and life are in the power of
the tongue." (Proverbs 18:21 NASB)       


Consider the Titanic.
You know the story better than I do.

Allegedly the architect of the ship, Thomas Andrews
states that, "God himself could not sink the ship."

In case you are not aware of it, it's not smart to
put a challenge up before God.  So, April 15, 1912
God showed him differently.  The ship went down with
Andrews himself on board and over 1,500 other lives
with him.

Oh!
By the way, Thomas Andrews knows better now.

I do not know about you, but I want to tame my
careless tongue.

TODAY'S PROMISE





"He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
Will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say to the LORD, 'My refuge and my fortress,
My God, in whom I trust!'
For it is He who delivers you from the snare of the trapper
And from the deadly pestilence.
He will cover you with His pinions,
And under His wings you may seek refuge;
His faithfulness is a shield and bulwark."
(Psalms 91:1-4 NASB)
