Be Still

Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations… Psalm 46:10

Only let your conduct be worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or am absent, I may hear of your affairs, that you stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel, and not in any way terrified by your adversaries, which is to them a proof of perdition, but to you of salvation,and that from God.For to you it has been granted on behalf of Christ, not only to believe in Him, but also to suffer for His sake,

Philippians 1:27-29

God is in control.  I can right now, tell you, without hesitation that I believe that, I know that.  

I can also tell you, that IF I did not believe that, right at this moment, I have absolutely no right to believe it any other time.

When I can be in the midst of what the world sees as trouble, and in the midst of that clearly feel the Holy Spirit prompting me to pray for those who are trying to hurt me, and find the strength from the Holy Spirit to comply with that prompting and do it, no one can tell me that my God is not in control.

Please keep my family in your prayers at this time.  Prayer works, God’s hands and fingerprints are all over this situation. It will still be a painful process, but that is what we, as Christians are called to.  That’s how we grow.

The focus for my life remains only to glorify God in all things.
