We as humans seem to ask this a lot in our lives. Especially at those times when God is letting us be tested. I am not going to quote a lot of great scriptures on this subject, although I certainly could. Surely, most would expect any Pastor( especially the director of Pastors for a church) to direct you to those scriptures. Over the many years that I have enjoyed being in God’s Ministry I have learned that lots of people never read those scriptures anyway. They want to be told the story so that they don’t have to extend any energy for God.
It seems that those people like to ask us why things happen to them instead of happening to us. If people really expended as much energy reading about and learning about God they would realize that we ask God this question as much as they do.
This week in our Ministry we have had one of those weeks. We had one sister in Georgia was in the hospital getting two stints put into arteries and another sister in Florida getting a knee replacement and my wife making a very difficult trip to Texas. Now I am on call 24 hrs a day for the next 7 days then my wife and her service dog will be making that very difficult trip home.
This week I am sure several Christians in our Ministry are probably asking God if he is looking at what we are going through this week, never mind next week. Although they know God is watching out for us, as humans we sometimes stumble in our faith then we get back up. Great news both ladies are home from hospital and recuperating. God is there always for us. We will get through this week also. God sometimes let us be challenged so we look back to him for guidance.
We simply need to keep our eyes on God and always remember that God IS ALWAYS THERE AND LOOKING OUT FOR US.
In our everyday struggles we often find ourselves challenged beyond what we think we can handle on our own. Some days life is just hard. The older I get the more I understand why older people have said to me things like “I am tired and r
eady to go home” or “this world is getting too complicated for me.” As new generations come into this world each has it’s new challenges. Each new thing seems harder than the last especially to older generations of people.
On the other hand, It is often not just older people that feel this way. Anyone can get caught up in this feeling of desperation as it seems life closes in on us. Sometimes it is minor things that seem to just happen then they can blossom into big things often seemingly not leaving us any way out. Sometimes it is big things that seem to hit us all at once. Whichever it is according to Romans 5:5 we always have a way out.
This is Pastor Bob, Lead Pastor at T4C MINISTRY, I am human just like everyone else who reads this blog or joins us in our live service Sunday nights at 8 pm Eastern time U.S. by simply calling 774 220 4000 and entering conference number 842646# Ihavethe same feelings of desperation and feelings of being overburdened but I always turn to scripture for God’s reassurance. I really like Romans 5:5.
Have you ever made a batch of cookies ? You take a little sugar, butter, flour, and eggs, mix them together, and turn all these different things into something sweet and delicious.
God does the same thing with us. God will take all these different people, from all kinds of different back grounds, of different life styles and color, and bring us all together in brotherhood, makes us all a family. The family of Christ, God’s children.
God doesn’t care if you are black, white, brown, doesn’t care if you are rich or poor. God doesn’t care if you are from the city or the farm. God doesn’t care who you vote for, God will accept you as you are, Gods family.
So think about that the next time you make up a batch of cookies.
