Words of Comfort

Written by Angelique Watkins

I am sharing an article that I wrote after 9/11/01.

First, I would like for all to know that my prayers are withrepparttar world, families, nations, volunteers, workers and just everybody. I am askingrepparttar 127009 Almighty God to lead us, heal us, bring us closer together and work a miracle in all our lives.

We do not represent grief counseling nor are we certified.

I am not a Pastor, Minister nor Clergy.

My only hope and resource isrepparttar 127010 Divine Holy Bible, Inspired Written Word of God.

I would like to travel back in time to about A.D. 96 or A.D. 68.My traveling will take me to The Island of Patmos and I am thinking on Revelation first throughrepparttar 127011 seventh chapter.

Revelation 2:10 Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold,repparttar 127012 devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.

Revelation 7:9 After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood beforerepparttar 127013 throne, and beforerepparttar 127014 Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands.

Revelations 7:16 They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shallrepparttar 127015 sun light on them, nor any heat.

Revelations 7:17 Forrepparttar 127016 Lamb which is inrepparttar 127017 midst ofrepparttar 127018 throne shall feed them and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.

It is human to be in grief. I have never met a person yet that has been able to escaperepparttar 127019 experience of grief.

The book of Job 2:13 tells me that "So they sat down with him uponrepparttar 127020 ground seven days and seven nights, and none spake a word unto him; for they saw that his grief was very great.

"There is no school that I have heard of yet that can teach you how to master grief. Diaster is a sudden, unexpected guest that we do not want to meet.

The book of Acts 27:10,14 tells me that "This voyage will be with hurt and much damage, not only ofrepparttar 127021 lading and ship, but also of our lives. But not long after there arose against it a tempestuous wind, called Euroclydon.

"Seven Epistles addressed torepparttar 127022 churches ofrepparttar 127023 seven cities of Asia, named in chapters one and two, and now written to inrepparttar 127024 same order, beginning with Ephesus and ending with Laodicea.

The apostle wrote torepparttar 127025 7 churches in Asia, and maybe others were touched by what he wrote. The number 7 stands for unity/completion in my understanding; andrepparttar 127026 7 churches as mentioned in John's revelations must represent one universal church.

The church encountered trials, tribulations, persecution, and open opposers. The church was able to overcome and stand firmly. The faithful shall be rewarded. To him(her) that overcometh, there is a great reward.

Is God Trying To Tell You Something

Written by David Walker


Behold, I stand atrepparttar door and: if any man hear my voice, and openrepparttar 127008 door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

Do you think God is trying to tell you something? I believe God is always trying to get our attention. God desires our attention no matter our social, economical or educational background. Our ethical heritage, gender and age do not stop God from knocking at our door. He still wants our attention if we are saved or unsaved.

Often we are so caught up inrepparttar 127009 world around us we donít takerepparttar 127010 time to seek or hear from God. There is no doubt about it life can be challenging and overwhelming. Many times we become mindful of God during our times of struggles. Isnít it wonderful that God is still mindful of us even though were not mindful of Him.

How often has God prompted you with a soft knock atrepparttar 127011 door of your heart and you ignored Him. The Bible shares with us, not to harden our hearts when we hear His voice. I believe God is always prompting us to receive His salvation. He is always trying to give us a way of escape from our struggles and sins. It is up to us to listen and obey.
