    So when he had washed their feet, put his outer garment back on, and sat down again, he said to them, 'Do you know what I have done to you? You call me, 'Teacher' and 'Lord.' You say so correctly, for so I am.If I then, the Lord and the Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one anot...

    Brothers, even if a man is caught in some fault, you who are spiritual must restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness, looking to yourself so that you also aren't tempted. Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. Galatians 6:1'2 WEBPicture us all climbing a mountain together,...

    When the men of Israel saw that they were in trouble (for the people were distressed), then the people hid themselves in caves, in thickets, in rocks, in tombs, and in pits. Now some of the Hebrews had gone over the Jordan to the land of Gad and Gilead; but as for Saul, he was yet in Gilgal, and all...

He Understands

  • Haven't you known? Haven't you heard? The everlasting God, Yahweh, the Creator of the ends of the earth, doesn't faint. He isn't weary. His understanding is unsearchable. Isaiah 40:28 WEB

    It was a hot Saturday evening in the summer and I was exhausted, and in a pretty bad mood by the time we got home. We had spent the whole day pulling network cables through the attic of our church and came home to find an unexpected tax bill in the mail box for five hundred dollars.

    I read over the letter and angrily said, "If we had spent the time working in our business that we have spent working at the church over the last month, we would have the money to pay this" and tossed it on the table. Harsh, but I was not feeling very godly at the time.

    When we went to church the following morning, one of the elders handed me an envelope. He said the church felt they should pay us something for all the work that we had been doing recently. I knew before I opened it what was inside, it was a check for five hundred dollars. Without us mentioning the tax bill to anyone, God had told them the amount to give us, and when.

    God understands. You can be honest with Him. He knows what you are going through. The temper tantrums that we throw don't even matter. He knows what you have bottled up inside and why you act the way that you do. So don't give up when you stumble, just get up and try again.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I trust that You will take care of me. You know my needs before I ask and I know that you are a rewarder of those that seek You. Please be with me this day and work Your perfect will in my life, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray. Amen!

Dear Father in Heaven, thank you for such an understanding heart and for understanding me when I have my moments of anger and frustration.  I know that you know me better than anyone and you ALWAYS show your tender love and compassion when those moments of anger and frustration rears its ugly head.  I am truly thankful and blessed that you care so deeply for ALL of your children.  In Jesus name I thankfully pray, Amen!!

Thank you for the encouragement Pastor Dion. I'm an over-reactor by nature and what comes out of my mouth initially isn't praise God! I have a tendency to throw temper tantrums as well. I am encouraged that God is bigger than my emotions and He also understands me. BTW... I am getting better :-) Thank God He gives us according to His mercy and not what we deserve.
