Through it All

Thank  you  for   your   prayers  and  loving  thoughts my   dear  friends.
The  battle   is  not  mine  but the Lord 's  and  He   has  given  me  strength and  victory. Glory  to His  name. I  just  have  to  exert  my  faith   and He  will  do  the  rest. I 've  had  anxious and discouraging  moments
 but   the  Lord  brought   me  out  of  them.

I  believe  it  is   a  privilege  and  honor  and blessing to  face  hostility  for  His   name  sake. I   have  it  good , friends -  my  brethren  are  suffering  much  more.
11 Blessed are ye when men shall reproach you, and persecute you, and say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.

12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets that were before you. (Matthew 5 -  New Testament- ASV)

If I   didn 't  have  a  problem, I  wouldn 't  know  that  God  could  solve it -  those  are  the  words  from  the   song  I  have   shared  here.
This  song  is   my  personal  testimony.




Through It All
-Andrae  Crouch

i've Had Many Tears And Sorrows,
i've Had Questions For Tomorrow,
there's Been Times I Didn't Know Right From Wrong.
but In Every Situation,
God Gave Me Blessed Consolation,
that My Trials Come To Only Make Me Strong.

chorus:

through It All,
through It All,
i've Learned To Trust In Jesus,
i've Learned To Trust In God.through It All,
through It All,
i've Learned To Depend Upon His Word.

i've Been To Lots Of Places,
i've Seen A Lot Of Faces,
there's Been Times I Felt So All Alone.
but In My Lonely Hours,
yes, Those Precious Lonely Hours,
Jesus Lets Me Know That I Was His Own

i Thank God For The Mountains,
and I Thank Him For The Valleys,
i Thank Him For The Storms He Brought Me Through.
for If I'd Never Had A Problem,
i Wouldn't Know God Could Solve Them
i'd Never Know What Faith In God Could  Do

How  has   God  strengthened  and  affirmed  you  lately?

I thought about your posting yesterday and it gave me real help this afternoon. I was in a very crowded train station and was concerned that I would fall on the track -- there was so much pushing. But I thought to myself that I was wearing a cloak of prayer and would be just fine. I added my thoughts for your cloak of prayer, too.

Sometimes in the time of worship we sing this song: "My Lord knows the way through the biggest bush, I only go follow Him". Jesus said that His children are blessed during time of persecution. For me the best verses about it are in Hebrews 11. I'm with You in my prayers, I believe God has You in His hands. His angels are with His children.

Dear Amrita,
I pray for you, that you may remain in the victorious blessing of feeling God's love and peace midst in the storm and thunder.
Psalm 139: 5Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon me.
That is just how it is. You are never alone.
Your felisol
