God knows all your struggles

It makes a difference when you are going through something, in any capacity, to know that somebody understands what you are going through, somebody that can feel what you feel.People sometimes can see you in a state of mind and they can sympathize with you but can’t do a thing to help you. It makes a difference to have somebody who really knows what you feel, what you think and can offer a consoling word to you. We all wish that we had somebody that really understood us ̵...

Thank God for divine detours

Some things that we were headed into would have been disastrous for us, but God by way of divine providence stepped in, delayed us and preserved our lives.We planned to go somewhere, like on a trip, but we got sick and couldn’t go or death occurred in the family and it changed things at the last minute.

Delays can be blessing in disguise

I want to talk today and the next several weeks about something that I hope will bless us — divine appointments.Now all of us know about appointments.

Interruptions can be an appointment by God.
