Was Written to Teach Us.

For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope. Romans 15:4 New International Version

 

I believe it was Winston Churchill who said that those who do not learn form the past are dammed to repeat its mistakes again.

I have found this to be oh so true.

How many people go from one disastrous relationship to the next?

One encouraging thing I have found in the Bible is that the heroes were people just like us.

 

Many of them kept on stumbling though one disaster to the next. Finally they submit to Jehovah and they find their purpose and obey. That does not mean it is easy.

As well there are numerous accounts of the saints who endured a lot of hardship. It is from them we can and should learn of perseverance and faith. It has brought me a lot of comfort and encouragement through some extremely difficult times.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our teacher) for blessing me with the honest scriptures that give me encouragement from those who have gone on before me that all hope is never lost for those who place their faith and obedience in Your wise hands. I humbly thank you in the name of He who forgave those who betrayed Him and gave them strength to obey Your holy calling in their lives Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus sweet love bless you today and every day

After faithfully serving the Lord in China for ten years as a teacher I have been called home to care for my aged mother who has numerous disabilities. As well I regularly do volunteer work visiting seniors in a seniors home. I love being in nature. I say the closer we get to nature the more we see Jehovah. We are blessed in this area with many amazing, easy to ride bicycle trails on old railroad lines that takes us all over Southern Ontario.
