Got Questions?


Psalm 104:1 


Praise the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, you are very great; you are clothed with splendor and majesty.




It's been five months. My sister and I recently were remembering my mom, the day she slipped away from us. I hear the doctor's words as if he were standing right in front of me afresh.  She is now gone from us. Sometimes questions still linger.  As many as I may have; only God is Sovereign, only God knows.  The only thing I know for sure, it that she is with her Lord. I believe what the Word of God says; He indeed is preparing a place for us.  So....I say like the lyrics to a song I recently heard by Matthew West... "save a place for me"  for I do know I will see her again. LISTEN Song | Save a place for me

Jesus spoke to his disciples about trouble, about suffering and trials.  He assured them that they would indeed come, but not to fear, for Christ himself had overcome. John 16:33   The apostle Paul wrote....For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.  Ephesians 6:12

Suffering, hardship, trials and adversity; this happens to everyone. Sickness, financial loss, separation from love ones, the unexpected .  Yes we all go through times of need and pain; a sense of poverty that grips us. Can God use our suffering and the deficiencies we go through to bring glory to his Name?  Yes he can, but do we let him?

As a church we have been reading the Book of Job and my pastor has expounded well on this book. God is Sovereign and does all things well and for his end and for his glory! SERMON | IT'S NOT WHAT YOU THINK

Yes God is Sovereign! We all have questions; we don't fully see the big picture, the tapestry and testimony that God is preparing.  READ | Job 38-41
