God of All Comfort

“All praise to the God… Father of all mercy! God of all healing counsel! He comes alongside us when we go through hard times, and before you know it, he brings us alongside someone else who is going through hard times so that we can be there for that person just as God was there for us. We have plenty of hard times… but no more so than the good times of his healing comfort—we get a full measure of that, too.” 2 Corinthians 1:3-5 (The Message)

For anyone that might be hurting just now- may you know the full measure of God’s comfort.

Wishing you every blessing and grace in Jesus Christ,

‘Life is not fair!’

“Life is not fair! If there is a loving and all-powerful God, why should He allow people to suffer!?”

Very legitimate question and concerns raised by a lot of people, even the most devout Christians. Nicky Gumbel (Author: Searching Issues) details a conversation between Gavin, a Pastor & a boy who had fallen down the stairs at a very young age, consequently had been in and out of hospital.

Gavin: ‘How old are you?’
Boy: 17
G: ‘How many years have you spent in hospital?’
B: 13
G: ‘do you think that is fair?’
B: ‘God’s got all eternity to make it up to me.’

Wow! What depth of insight! The young man got this – “Yet what we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory he will reveal to us later.” Rom 8:18 (cf 2 Corinthians 4:17)

May you know God’s comfort in your present sufferings.

The Good vrs. The Better

“God never takes away the good unless He plans to replace it with the better.” Selwyn Hughes

Simple, yet profound! May this truth help you through any time of loss.

This Time

Our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy and unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways and for truer answers. Scott Peck

Going through a period of difficulty? Be encouraged to step out in faith and seek the treasures that may be hidden in those dark places.This time, like all times, can be a very good one, if you but know what to do with it.

Every blessing,

Restoration

And I will restore or replace for you the years that the locust has eaten…my great army which I sent among you. And you shall eat in plenty and be satisfied and praise the name of the Lord, your God, Who has dealt wondrously with you. And My people shall never be put to shame” Joel 2:25-26 (Amplified Version)

For all you count as loss- in your Spirit, soul and body.
For all you count as loss- in your family life, relationships and finances.
God, in due time restores and replaces far beyond what we can ask or imagine as He promises.

Expect Restoration

Every Blessing, with prayers…
