A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.

Encouragement

Seems these days I am clinging
to scriptures and such things that make me
focus that the GOD is in CONTROL
I am so needing this kind of reassurance, how about you?

During these tumultuous times I don't think we can be reminded of this comforting fact too often! Thanks for the encouragement. (o:

Yes, Deby for sure. I just don't bother watching the news. But when I get on- line I do see the headlines and also I listen to some talk radio in the car. I would just rather focus on God's goodness! However, I see so many who are hurting and going through trials that break my heart.

Deby honey, our stake president tells us that regularly: be happy and God is in control no matter what. I believe this but am so disgusted with.......well, I'm not bringing negativity to your blog, chickee so let's just be happy and positive and of good cheer!!

Thank you so much for this wonderful reminder. I am currently reading through the life of Joseph in Genesis. He suffered great injustices at the hand of his family and others, yet he remained a true servant of the Lord. God was with him and actually directing every circumstance although I am sure there must have been times when Joseph felt quite abandoned. This story is such a blessing and a great reassurance. I am praying for you, dear Deby!

It seems we hear God better when things are tough.

I wish I would not need to go through these things to hear Him so well.

Deby,
I so needed that quote! It meant the world too me with everything our family has been going through~ So thank you so much for being obedient to want the Lord places on your heart to share.
Blessings,

Absolutely Deby. It's one of the things I'm just resting in as we do the Esther study. We read a verse in Proverbs last week that says God controls the heart of the king. Indeed, He is in control of everything, and if that weren't so I don't know how I could face another day.

Deby...the LORD puts us in these times for that very purpose..to know he is in control and as we yeild to HIM..a great work is accomplished in us and sometimes in others as well.

Oh how I have had to learn this lesson! I rejoice in telling you..it is worth it all! No matter the sorrow...heartache...pain etc.

GOD DOES ...ALL THINGS...WELL!

Praying for you and hoping you get some relief in your health.

Deby, Just remember that nothing touches us unless it goes through our heavenly Father's Hand first.
Each trial teaches us a new lesson and helps us to maybe be a blessing to others that may face things later. No matter what,
Our god is in Control.
Thanks for sharing.

Deby, I need this reassurance TERRIBLY. Especially in the times we're finding ourselves. Thanks for another gorgeous presentation of the Word of God. So refreshing.
