Far too many introspective and soul searching questions about God and His plans for us are answered with generic "run of the mill" answers. Is it any wonder why the folks asking the questions usually stop asking? Who can blame them? Especially when they finally work up enough courage to pull a deep stirring question from the bottom of their heart--a question they know will place them in a vulnerable child-like position of ignorance and humility as they wait patiently for an answer. And with baited breath, with their heart pounding in their chest, just when they can't stand the anticipation anymore, comes the answer,..."Gee, I don't know". To only be outdone by the ever insightful, "God works in mysterious ways". You can only expect somebody to put themselves through this a couple of times before they decide, "This isn't for me".
This scenario plays out far too frequently and it shuts people down. But the answers are there, just waiting to be given to us. However, we cant drink out of a fire hydrant. There's a process to receive this information. But let's move on.
I would be honored if you were to spend some of your valuable time in this site. My hope is that you'll find something that helps you and yours. When you do, all glory to God!
I am not a pastor, nor do I have a formal education in divinity. I simply want to share with you some of the answers the spirit has given me. Thank you, Lord.
Let me say this: You must accept that God loves you! Each and every one of you. Yes that guy too. Yup, even her. Yes, even that guy who did that terrible thing to you. You need to accept that our father considers all of them, and you, his beloved children. I remember telling my daughter, as she was hurting the feelings of my other child, that my heart breaks in two if somebody hurts my child, if if the one doing the hurting is my child. If you don't grasp this concept, no amount of reading will bring you peace or joy. Don't worry...like I said, this is a process.
I will be posting answers to some very tough questions, and I won't shy away from the rough stuff either. Some answers will be long and windy, others will be just a couple of sentences long. Please submit some of your own questions too. You will remain anonymous of course, but I will post your question and my answer. And yes, you will find some typos. :)
