“We know that all things work together
for good to them that love God.”
- Romans 8:28
Dear Friends,

Thanks for stopping by! Thank God for His goodness to us daily.

♥ Thanks for your prayers for me. I am still experiencing dizziness daily every now and then but so much better now. Thank God for strengthening me day by day and I am more functional this week. I also had a mild asthmatic attack last Sunday due to heavy rain for a few days and extremely cold temperature. I thank God that He sustains me and restore me day by day.

♥ I thank God that He gives me simple joy and peace in Him despite some health issues recently. I am learning to rest in Him and to rejoice in Him no matter what happens. The Lord in His faithfulness has shown me time and again that He is in control and He works all things for His glory and our good. This gives me the courage to press on daily in His grace and strength no matter what happens and through all the changing scenes in life.

♥  I thank God for the encouraging devotional the Lord used to minister to me this morning from CH Spurgeon's Morning and Evening. Spurgeon said:

“We know that all things work together for good to them that love God.” - Romans 8:28

Upon some points a believer is absolutely sure.

He knows, for instance, that God sits in the stern-sheets of the vessel when it rocks most. He believes that an invisible hand is always on the world’s tiller, and that wherever providence may drift, Jehovah steers it. That re-assuring knowledge prepares him for everything.

He looks over the raging waters and sees the spirit of Jesus treading the billows, and he hears a voice saying, “It is I, be not afraid.”

He knows too that God is always wise, and, knowing this, he is confident that there can be no accidents, no mistakes; that nothing can occur which ought not to arise.

He can say, “If I should lose all I have, it is better that I should lose than have, if God so wills: the worst calamity is the wisest and the kindest thing that could befall to me if God ordains it.” “We know that all things work together for good to them that love God.”... continue reading

♥ I thank God for my family, my church, my friends and everyone of you, my dear blogging friends, and for your prayers and encouragements. They mean a lot to me especially as I wait upon our Lord for restoration.You have made a great difference in my life by your friendship and encouraging notes. I thank God for every one of you. You are in my thoughts and prayers too.

Thank you for stopping by. Take care and have a blessed day!

Warm Regards,

Hi Karen,

Thanks for your visit and prayers. Thank God that I am so much better this week. Missed you and other blogging friends.

That is a nice picture and comforting verse that you posted on your blog from Exodus 25:22 " 22And there I will meet with thee, and I will commune with thee from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubims which are upon the ark of the testimony, of all things which I will give thee in commandment unto the children of Israel." Thanks for sharing with us. Take care and have a blessed day.

Warm regards,
Nancie

Hi Nancie! Thanks for stopping by earlier. I didn't have my TT post up yet, but I do now so you can go back and read it if you are up to it. I replied on my blog where you commented. Thank you for your prayers for Brandon. I didn't know you had asthma. I had it as a child and sometimes it re-occurs. Isn't it weird what can trigger an attack? Growing up I could not wear tight fitting shirts. Everytime I wore this one blouse, I swear I got asthma! LOL Thank goodness that no longer happens due to a tight blouse. Now perfumes will trigger mine. Hope your dizziness ceases soon.

Hi Nancie
That's a wonderful thought, that God is in control. And that anything that He allows to come our way is something in which He will work out for good.
Acknowledging this releases us to have a thankful heart and praise Him, regardless of our circumstances.
God bless
Peter
