Our Sunday school topic for today focuses on the special blessings that God pours out upon his children. (I want to dedicate this to my dad who raised me in God's word and love. Thank God for Christian fathers.)
I have just been thinking back about when I was a girl, growing up. My twin brother Danny and I running around here without a care in the world. oh my goodness. I didn't know how precious that time was then, but I do now. I remember the first time I went fishing. My dad made me a fishing pole out of a little tree branch. He tied some fishing line on the end of it and put a hook on it for me, and he took us walking down the dirt road behind our house where we came to a small pond. After some time passed, my brothers were catching fish and I was watching them standing there with my fishing pole and my line in the water. With no clue of what I was doing. I hadn't caught anything, and I wanted to catch a fish so bad, (and throw it back in of course. I wanted it to live, (smiles). In my mind I kept praying, please, please, please, just one? I just wanted to catch one fish.
This Sunday School topic is about understanding the blessings of trusting in the Lord and how we can glory through trials and tribulations . To those belonging to Christ ,the result of going through tribulations in this life is patience, experience, and hope.

This week we’ll finish the study of our Bible heroine, Queen Esther. Over the past couple of weeks, we’ve seen her being chosen, then challenged. And today, we’re going to see Esther continuing to be very courageous. God has given us the example of Esther so that when we are faced with challenges, we too can lean on the strength of the Lord; and recognize that He has placed us in just the right place to make a difference, for Him.

Horizon Christian Fellowship - San Diego. - Lamentations 3:26,27 It is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the LORD.It is good for a man to bear the yoke while he is young. Dear brothers and sisters in Jesus,is it fair that we should know sorrow, pain and death? I think my answer would be,"it's not that we are supposed to experience death and pain. It's the wisdom that comes from knowing how good God is, despite our pain and sorrow. Because wisdom and understanding is way more valuable and worthwhile than all the pleasures that are marketed and pushed on us, and believing physical sex and substance abuse and pleasures that we are led to think is normal and real, are good for us. God is real and the sooner we get to know Him, the more peace we will have in the fire and turmoil. Then we can truly enjoy our lives whether in poverty or wealth. Peace or war. Beautiful or not beautiful.. 4/7/2011

4/14/10 More: Is it possible for someone to write a few paragraphs on how great I am? Or will it turn out to be, how great I was? If you ever get a thought in your spirit about something, some place, or someone, and you pray for that something, someplace, or somebody, you have done a great thing,and it's to God be the Glory. Gideon was a mighty man of valour. You are a mighty man or woman of valour too. No hype, no fanfare; just doing your duty.

LISA DEVINNEY - “I will send down showers in season; there will be showers of blessing.” Ezekiel 34:26b NIV Are you in the midst of a storm, today? Are dark clouds looming above you while water is rising around you? Or do you find yourself fighting a battle that seems to test every fiber of your strength and faith? Or maybe you have a friend facing a difficult challenge, and you’d like to encourage them through their battle. Inspired by a friend’s courageous battle with cancer, Blessings in the Rain is a collection of Scripture verses and poems meant to encourage those who find themselves fighting battles of their own. Whether physical, mental or spiritual…the battles we face daily can easily cause us doubt, discouragement, despair, or fear. But God has an incredible way of taking what might have been meant to harm us, and instead use it for our good. He turns our storms into “showers of blessing.”
This book views the New Testament within the Holy family, clarifying for the reader the time and place relationships among these events, most of which are often studied in isolation from each other in Bible studies. In this way, a reader may already know the stories of Lazarus, Jesus, Herod, etc. but may lack an integrated vision of how these events worked together in time and place. The book's interweaving of events, plus diligent detail in presenting culture and setting, will place a vivid memory of New and Old Testament events in the reader’s mind.
Your kids will delight in the timeless
tales of courage, faith & endurance with characters like Adam & Eve,
Noah, Moses, Abraham, Jesus of Nazareth, and the Apostles.
Our truly unique DVD's bring biblical stories and characters to
life. The Animated Kids Bible will cement their favorite biblical
stories and characters in their memories for all time, by first
entertaining them, and then helping them to develop deeper
understanding and knowledge. Click
