Connecting Columbia Union Seventh-day Adventists
- Year of the Bible
In this time of unprecedented uncertainty, where else can we find our help and strength but in God?
God is so good. He can bring something good out of the very worst, most tragic moments in our lives.
At times like these, let’s remind ourselves that feelings will bounce around like a ping-pong ball, but God’s Word, love and care for us are consistent and do not waver.
Four of us formed a small prayer group. We met after class to pray together, and sometimes arrived early to pray for our classmates. The results of our prayers revolutionized my ministry.
God’s powerful spirit brings this verse to my mind at times when I am tempted to say an unkind word, express frustration or behave impulsively to defend myself.
These words were no longer just letters in an obscure text; they were a living promise. I could look back at the evidence and see it so clearly.
On June 6, 2018, my family and I were given the worst news any parent can be given. Our life in a comfortable cocoon shattered.
This verse reminds me that God will work out things in my life for good. And if we listen to His leadings, how many times can He use us to work out good in other people’s lives?
One day, I heard this memory verse and it brought me such comfort. It tells me that I do not need to feel afraid, that He is always with me.
I have committed many mistakes in my life due to me moving ahead of the Lord. In fact, to me it seems like He is the one sometimes slowing me down. Oh, but if I, at times, would have just waited for God’s leading, how things would have turned out differently.
