When God Doesn’t Make Sense? đź¤”

Amazing Grace

From time to time things feels out of control creating a tsunami of fear and uncertainties.

Warning: Stop trusting other people to save you. Do not believe for one moment that people have everything you need. Our friends are mere humans like us, and they too are lost in their own lives fighting battles that you and I don’t know.

People need JESUS … NOT other human beings.

Many times life doesn’t always make sense as there’s trouble on every side. We often don’t know what to do…and when our foundation shakes and everything around us begins to make loud noises…it can get scary.

The negative thoughts come fast and furious. Satan is a mastermind at bringing on a spirit of fear and instability.

The truth is, God never promised any of us a life free of pain, but He did promise us strength for TODAY.

So…it’s NOT God…

A Deep Satisfaction God Has ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

A deep satisfaction,
God gets from us
when we place in Him
our faith and trust.

For when we give Him,
all our imperfections
we open up our hearts
to His corrections.

A deep gratification,
God has for us
when we give Him
every ounce of our trust.

For when on His power,
we daily come to seek
He rewards with the strength
to be humble and meek.

A deep pleasure,
God takes in us
when on Him . . .
we learn to trust!


Hebrews 11:6

“But without faith
it is impossible to please him:
for he that cometh to God must
believe that he is, and that he
is a rewarder of them that
diligently seek him.”

You Have More Within You

When was the last time you helped someone move? There was a season of life when it felt like at least one Friday or Saturday a month was booked up with helping someone move. I am sure you have had your fair share of times hauling boxes up and down stairs for a friend. Every once in a while I will ask my wife if helping people move is on my Murtaugh list yet…

From all of my times being part of the moving crew I noticed one thing again and again…so much so that I think it is probably universal to the moving process. That one thing? I call it the Tetris experience.  You know the drill; everyone gathers to survey the belongings and evaluate the size of the truck. There might be some minor debate…

“There is no way all of this will fit in the truck!”

WWI Centenary

Pacific Paratrooper

This is a site for the Pacific War, but we must not overlook the 100th Centennial of WWI.

On Nov. 11, 1918, after more than four years of horrific fighting and the loss of millions of lives, the guns on the Western Front fell silent. Although fighting continued elsewhere, the armistice between Germany and the Allies was the first step to ending World War I. The global reaction was one of mixed emotions: relief, celebration, disbelief and a profound sense of loss. The armistice centennial offers the chance to look back and assess its continued significance today.

When World War I began in August 1914, few expected the conflict to last beyond Christmas. Over the course of the next few months, however, it was clear this would not come to pass. The conflict, already expanded beyond Europe, included great movements of imperial colonies in…

Your love to find.

Thank you Father,

for showing mercy

Thank you Father,

for His grace to finish
what You begun.

Thank you Father,
