Sheltered in the Arms of God





When Life Strikes a Blow:
“If anything is a mystery to you and it is coming in between you and God, never look for the explanation in your intellect, look for it in your disposition, it is that which is wrong. When once your disposition is willing to submit to the life of Jesus, the understanding will be perfectly clear, and you will get to the place where there is no distance between the Father and His child because the Lord has made you one…”- Oswald Chambers

If you are like me, life hammers me with questions in the tough times. It is not easy to get up and walk straight when you are punch-drunk. You rather stay down and not move a muscle.
Is that an option?
Obviously it is very tempting to just lie there, with questions swimming about your head.  But that is not an option, and questions sometimes help not at all. I have felt the tightness in my chest when I could not figure a way out from under the pressure. I have watched tears spill from the corners of eyes connected to a heart that does not know what or why God is doing what He is doing. In those times it is easy to question.  
Rom 8:35  Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

 “Either Jesus Christ is a deceiver and Paul is deluded, or some extraordinary thing happens to a man who holds on to the love of God when the odds are all against God's character. Logic is silenced in the face of every one of these things. Only one thing can account for it - the love of God in Christ Jesus. Out of the wreck I rise, every time.”- Oswald Chambers

Once again, it is good to have Edith Wood back home for a few weeks. She is greatly missed when she is gone. We want to continue to pray as she cares for her father when she is in Idaho.


We miss the kearneys this morning. They took some vacation time to go see friends and family. May they have safe travels.
