I was shown some hope today ...

I am not a very religous person, however my mom and dad are "born again christians" ... The other day when I was there I read about a man ( I think Jeb ) and that there was a flood and he climbed to his roof , a person came to help him before the water got too high but he said no, that God will take care of him, after he was on his roof, a lifeboat came but he turned it away saying God will take care of him, and then a helicopter came to rescue him but he turned it away saying god will take care of him... but of course his house went under and so did he and was mad when he met God, saying I thought you would take care of me, and God said I sent you help and you turned it away...... meaning that god sends us help in little ways, and today I really believe that is what happened to me...

I have posted before that my husband has lost his job, and it has been very hard and stressful and to make it worse * continued below *

  • Praise God! I want to encourage you. When I look back now to when I wasn't a Christian I can see how God was watching over me through little things like that. Christianity is not about religious rules and doctrines, it's about love and having a close relationship with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. When we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior, we are "born again" as stated in the bible. If you'd like to know more, please feel free to contact me. Trust me, He has more where that came from :). I'd love to hear from you. Take care and may you be blessed!

  • That's a very good analogy of people refusing to see G-d's hand in the little everyday things.

  • "God is awesome! My DH also lost his job, and God has sustained throughout."

    We had the same experience as well. DH and I went through a rough patch and all through it we always had what we needed, we never lacked food, shelter, health care, etc. The more you acknowledge that G-d is in control, the more He IS in control and gives you what you need. The more you're determined to think that it's all about your own effort or luck, the more things are dependent on external factors like the general economic situation.
