OVERCOMING TRIBULATION

When trials come we sometimes act as if God is on vacation, we question God: Why is this happening to me? What did i do to deserve this? Why am i going thru this difficult circumstance? Whats wrong God? But if we read the scriptures and look for the answers we find Jesus said "In the world you will have tribulatoins" He didn't say that you could have tribulations or that if you aren't a good person, tribulation will come your way. Jesus flatly stated you will have tribulations. It is as certain as growing older.  Jesus said in John 16:33   You will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world. If we have Jesus in our heart we can overcome the tribulations of the world also.

WHAT IS YOUR LIFE?

You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.  James   4: 14    Some years ago some one asked me what had been my biggest surprise in life. with out  hesitation I replied    "The brevity of life"  Almost before we realize it the years have passed by and life is almost over. The shortness of life should also comfort us, because before us is eternity.  When suffering overwhelm us or difficulties asail, we know they will soon be over.  We shouldn't live this life as if it will continue for ever.  "It won't."  We should live instead with eternity in view, for the things which are seen in life today are "Temporary".

TIME A PRECIOUS COMMODITY

I have only just a minute,
Only sixty seconds in it.
Forced upon me, can't refuse it.
Didn't seek it, didn't choose it.
But it's up to me
to use it.
I must suffer if I lose it.
Give account if I abuse it.
Just a tiny little minute,
but eternity is in it.

1To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
3 A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
5 A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
6 A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
7 A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
8 A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.

                             Ecclesiastes 3; 1-8


For he says, I have heard you in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I helped you: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)

"WHAT A FRIEND WE HAVE IN JESUS"

Sometimes our way lies in the sunshine, sometimes our way leads through dark shadows, of loss, disappointments and sorrow. It's then we need a truly good friend to walk with us.  With Christ as our friend we find a hahit we can not break, is breakable, an emotion that defeats you is defeated, attitudes that seperate us from others is changed, a heart that is filled with doubt, discouragement or fear, is healed. With Him even sorrow turns to blessings."WHAT A FRIEND WE HAVE IN JESUS"    Is he your friend today?  He will be your friend if you ask Him.

John  15: 13-14

WHOM DO YOU TRUST

Some years ago some one gave a little girl a dollar. She took it to her father and said  "Father will you keep this for me" but in a little while she came back and said thanks for keeping my dollar father "But I'd better keep my own dollar" She tucked it in her pocket and went out to play. In a little while she came back with tears in her eyes saying "Father I lost my dollar can you help me find it" How often we commit our burdens to the Lord and then fail to trust Him, by taking matters into our own hands. Then when we have messed things up, we pray "Oh Lord help me I'm in trouble" The choice is yours. Do you want to tust your life in Gods "Pocket" Or keep it in your own? The Bible promise is true. "Blessed is the man who makes the Lord his trust."

PSALMS  40:4
