A Mother's Wisdom

I started the day with the same thought that I left off yesterday, at around 1:30am this morning my daughter who is 7months with her second child and this is my forth grandchild .. I thank God for all of them.. her and her husband and my 1year old grandson Patric are staying with my beloved wife and I for 4 to 5 months to save some money to move to N. Carolina so big daddy Patric can study to become a Nascar mechanic .. well she woke the wife and I up to tell us if we knew that the electric was out .. we realize that the other houses were without power themselves .. so I just went back to bed .. woke back up around 7am and since there still was no electric I went off to Dunkin Donuts for the morning Java .. I wanted to write earlier since the thoughts were still on my mind .. thank God at 10am there was power again .. by then it was not raining any more so it was time to clean the pool .. see it was a storm that caused the power to go out and the rest of the day it has been on and off with the rain .. before I stared to clean the pool I decided to call my Mom .. my mom as I had stated in one of my past post is a Godly woman .. she is about as pure as one can be without yet getting to heaven .. my mom has been serving the Lord since 1963 .. she is a good student of the Word of God and a mighty prayer warrior .. she also possesses alot of wisdom and a good understanding of the Word of God ..

I called her and said mother I am going to ask you a question and before you answer me I want you to think first .. because I would like your answer to be one word .. she said .. OK .. I said in one word mother why do you think that God heals or answer some peoples prayers and request and others He dose not .. she went to give me her quick answer and I said wait there is more to the question then you have heard .. why if there is so many people praying to God for a miracle .. all together believing God to do this one act of healing .. why then dose He chose not to answer our prayer .. I could hear her thinking Just for a brief moment and then her answer was .. that we have to trust God and have FAITH .. the word that I was looking for .. in one word she said that would be it .. Faith .. to test our Faith .. she then really stunned me when she said .. consider the man Job .. I'm telling you I not only smiled on the other side of the phone but she also gave me the goose bumps .. I said mother I am happy that you have said what you said because everything you have told me is what I already wrote yesterday .. funny how some times God puts in our hearts something yet we look for confirmation else where .. I am saying this because yesterday I try to call my mom to post this question to her before writing my post .. not being able to call her I just said what I felt God has lead me to say or write is more like it .. I never look other then to God for my words .. for my inspiration .. but afterwards someone that I be talking to will tell me the same as I had already wrote .. so I have learn to trust God that I never have to look further then Him for answers ..

Again I will say that it is all about faith .. our faith to trust God even when He dose not answer our prayer request .. the crazy thing is that our faith is built up when God is merciful and answers our prayers, our needs and even our wants .. but God forbid if He has a different idea for the situation, if His reason dose not fit in our heads at the time .. if He decides that we would be better off in the long run .. but we can not see that far ahead .. then we are questioning His decision and seeking answers from Him .. some people get mad at God if they don't get their answers .. funny thing with God is He has to answer to no man .. and that is where FAITH comes into play .. trust God for everything and in everything and you would not have to ask Him anything .. Just have Faith and you will always have His peace also ..

Faith Triumphs in Trouble

1 Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,
2 through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
3 And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance;
4 and perseverance, character; and character, hope.
5 Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.

GOD Bless .. Tbone out

Good post Tbone - I was afraid you were gonna say if we didn't have enough faith... But you didn't! We have all been given the measure of faith and it only takes a mustard seed worth to move a mountain. You have a key - FAITH whether or not we SEE our answer! We are to walk by faith and not by sight. It only matters that we BELIEVE!
