    about a baby who fell eleven stories and lived. It goes to show that our God is a powerful God! It shows that He IS in control of all the situations of our lives! Look around and see the hand of God at work in our world and in our lives and in the lives of those we love and...

    Through My Cancer

    “Yes, the results are here, but the doctor who reads them won’t be in until Tuesday, “ the increasingly rude receptionist said. “Well, is there any doctor there that can read them? I’m really nervous.” “There is, but he’s not the one who reads the tests...

    I am on a journey. I came from a dark place,

    my life was full of **** and lust. It took a shattering event for me to accept my weakness and change. I am only 100 days into my new life. I know God is in control. I am not perfect but understanding more everyday on how I should act in Gods eyes.

    I saw the movie about the tsunami in Japan.

    And Sees What We Do Not

    The only reason people have trouble believing God is in control is because they cannot see from His perspective! I am not claiming to see what God sees, but I am aware of the nature of God to an extent - I know that he can see where these events are leading us...

    If I ever had any doubt during my life that God existed, it is gone, carved out by hate. Pure hate directed at God by people suffering in ways I could never imagine. The experiences I've read on the "I Hate God" group can't be directed at nothing. So much unabridged loathing...

    I read a post earlier this morning

    and it broke my heart. Let me explain. If I understood it correctly according to the author God is powerless to intervene in our lives. God is in control in all the circumstances of our lives no matter how it looks to our five senses. Nothing and no one can overtake God! He...
