Ultimately, God is in control of all things. The success that we experience in our lives comes from the goodness of our Heavenly Father.
Whether we’re nineteen, forty-two or seventy-eight . . . we’ll all be on death’s doorstep one day. For many, that fact is terrifying to consider.
Ever ponder the assumptions we make about God? “Well, the God I know would never allow me to lose my job or give me a spouse who’d have an affair.” And the list goes on and on.
The life of faith isn’t always black and white. It’s a mystery. In fact, sometimes it’s difficult to see God’s design behind the trials we’re forced to endure.
Ever notice how God seems to be on a different timetable than ours? We live by the minute . . . He chooses to act by the century.
