All Shook Up?

Has your world, your life been shaken?  Have you, like millions, suffered loss from the unprecedented natural disasters, economic disaster or job loss?  Do you ever wonder what God is up to with so much bad stuff going on in the world?

Does God have your attention?  He has mine.  I would encourage you to visit Joel Rosenberg's blog and read the recap of his recent message "Four Reasons Why God Is Shaking Up America and the World" at the Wake Up Call For God's People conference

Trust me---When the Big Guy wants your attention, He will get it, one way or the other. He has often said to me, "We can do this easy or we can do this hard---how do you want it?"

The key thing is to look for His leadings in our daily lives and recognize them.

Hi Clint,

I think we must be in the same school of learning. I too get the "we can do this easy way or the hard way". I pray that more and more I do it the easy way. Then the Lord has a way of showing me of my prideful, willful, stubborn ways.

Praise God that He is so patient with us and willing to help us learn, even the hard way.

Blessings in Christ...Susan

Hello Mrs. Mac,

Indeed, we live in crazy, interesting times. While no man knows the day or hour of Christ's return, it seems that He will soon be taking His bride, the church, home to heaven.

I guess each day Christ's return is delayed, it gives further evidence of God's longsuffering and desire that all would come to repentance.

Blessings in Christ...Susan

Hi Janette,

That's a wonderful way to approach the shaking we undergo. Even your attitude will be a great witness and testimony to your children.

So many people's lives have been touched in significant ways, either directly or indirectly through family and friends.

Praise God that as Christians we can have peace in the midst of difficulties and the assurance that God is working out His plan. He is working all things together for good for those who love Him and are called according to His purposes (Romans 8:28). We may not know what that good is, this side of heaven. We can have confidence in God and know that His intentions towards us are good.

Blessings...Susan

On our recent road trip, Chris and I went to Minnesota to have my mother's ashes laid to rest with her parents.  Something long over...
