Dear Blogging Friends, at times as we know Life presents not only Blessings but Problems and Challenges that need to be faced or resolved and not denied and these may take time to do so as I found recently, this meant that I did have not have time to Post or Comment and so I have missed you all but look forward to catching up with you in the near future.
The personal problems I have are still not fully resolved but I’m seeking The Lord for His guidance in the difficult circumstances that at times feel overwhelming. I would very much value your prayers too.
A few of the good challenges that I was presented with during the last week was to help a young woman who has no home or job, Carla needed support and so is now living in our home and has proven to be a real blessing with her even helping me care for and entertain a needy friends five very active Children.
Also I can give Thanks that I have been accepted as a Volunteer in a Christian Day Care Center for Children and I will be very much looking forward to doing this.
But yesterday I was once again reminded about wrong Teaching in the Church, Vivienne a close friend of mine shared with me the turmoil she suffered as a new Christian when she was told that following Jesus means only good things happen to you and that life will be problem free but as she still experienced Trouble at the time and also later, she now knows this is not True and it is confirmed much more than once in Scripture but it is not God afflicting us and causing us to suffer, all good things come from Him but He will help us resolve whatever problems Life brings to us so we can walk in Victory.
Isaiah 43:1-3 – Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name you are mine, when you go through deep waters and great trouble I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown! When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up the flames will not consume you. For I am the LORD, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Saviour.”
Jeremiah 29 :11-12 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of Peace and not of evil, to give you a Future and a Hope.
Lamentations 3: 33 For God doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the Children of Men.
Below is a Cartoon clip that Vivienne sent to me not long after we talked, it also confirms the Armour we have in Christ Jesus (see link below)

Yes I do have Problems needing to be resolved but I can give Thanks to God for His Strength to endure and for Special Friends who Care and Support both of us.
Thanking you our Blogging Friends for your Loving and Caring Spirit.
