Crumbs – A Day in Infamy, Part One

   *God speaks through His Word to those who put their hope in Him but are sometimes confused and wonder if He has forgotten them:

                                                                          

“Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you……” l Peter 42

                                                          

“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.” Deuteronomy 31:6

                                                                                           

“Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne? Though she may forget, I will not forget you.” Isaiah 49:15

“Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the Lord his God.” KJV

 *God speaks to those who have suffered the consequences of evil:

“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28

                                                                                   

“Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance.” James 1:2-3

                    

To those who want to live contented lives:

                                                   

“There are nine requisites for contented living: HEALTH enough to make work a pleasure; WEALTH enough to support your needs; STRENGTH enough to battle with difficulties and forsake them; GRACE enough to confess your sins and overcome them; PATIENCE enough to toil until some good is accomplished; CHARITY enough to see some good in your neighbor; LOVE enough to move you to be useful and helpful to others; FAITH enough to make real the things of God; HOPE enough to remove all anxious fears concerning the future.”  

    Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
