A Sigh of Relief

A Sigh of Relief

As you approach the end of this year and maybe you think of all your plans still outstanding, or you consider the things that didn't turn out according to plan, perhaps you 'sigh'. I think for many the year often ends with a sigh, even if only one of exhaustion! For others the sigh is more tragic and despairing...

To God Be The Glory!

To God Be The Glory!

Arturo Toscanini led his orchestra in an electrifying rendition of Beethoven's symphony No.9. The audience applauded wildly. Toscanini bowed and bowed and bowed. Then he turned to his orchestra and said, "Gentlemen, I am nothing; you are nothing; Beethoven is everything, everything, everything!"

A Confidence Boost

A Confidence Boost

Whatever confidence man had in his fellow-man has been dealt a near fatal blow worldwide through various catastrophes. The global financial crisis has uncovered the abhorrent greed of bankers and financiers. In the UK, Members Of Parliament have been exposed in the flagrant abuse of their expenses which are derived from the tax-payers purse...

The Faithfulness Of God In Affliction

The Faithfulness Of God In Affliction

Every one of us would agree that our God is faithful to us in our afflictions, but who of us ever consider that He is faithful to us in giving us affliction! Now, we must be careful not to charge the Lord with causing evil, but surely this verse clearly indicates that at times our All Wise and Loving Father permits certain afflictions to enter our lives for His purposes and our good...

The Trying Of Our Faith

The Trying Of Our Faith

We were disappointed to learn the news on Thursday 9th April that the Bank had refused a mortgage to the purchasers of our house. This has meant that we are no longer in a position to buy the new house in Portadown and we have had to put our own property back on the market again. This is now the second time this has happened to us in 9 months...

It Is The Lord's Doing

The blog entry dated Monday 25th August 2008 read: "Psalm 107:7, 'And he led them forth by the right way, that they might go to a city of habitation.'...Please pray especially for our house situation. In July we put our house up for sale and there has been some interest since but nothing definite as yet. We believe the Lord has told us to move, and indeed where to move to - so please pray with us that He will soon 'bring it to pass'"...

New Year Thoughts

New Year Thoughts

On one occasion, a student tacked her New Year Calendar to the wall, and was heard to say, "It is going to be a beautiful year!" "How do you know?" asked her roommate. "Well", she replied, "a day isn't a long time, and I know it is going to be beautiful because I am going to take a day at a time and make it so. I will see that every one of those 365 days gets at least one beautiful thing into it through my efforts." Her New Year motto might be, in the words of David, "So teach us to number our days that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom" (Psalm 90:12)...
