Right on, J.D.! Such an encouraging reminder of the gospel this morning!
Wow how Great is our God. What a blessing on this day
This video is SO very powerful and SO very true!! I will make a habit to watch and memorize this video. JD, your intonation makes that rather easy, too. Thanks.
Your faithfulness to the gifts God has bestowed on you is a blessing to me and my family. Thank you.
The degree of freedom in my life just increased Greatly . . PREACH!
It may not be an accident that I heard the sermon that this is taken from earlier this week. That sermon spoke directly into my life and my attitude right now. It helped to be reminded that God is trustworthy and steadfast. I spent the last few days committing Lamentations 3:21-26 to memory because of my need for that reminder.
My wife left me. She moved out a month ago. I have felt pain like nothing I can describe. (JD, you might remember that I talked to you about this a couple of times.) Even now, I don’t *feel* comfort or security. But I’m choosing to *call to mind* the promises that God gives about his love.
I hope she comes back so badly. I miss her terribly. Every day, how I feel varies. But God promises that his mercy *does not* vary from day to day. His love is steadfast.
I turn to prayer much more frequently than I did before she left because, in a situation I have no control in, I know God sees my pain and has compassion. I know prayer changes circumstances (Luke 11:9-13, Luke 18:-18). I find myself praying primarily for two things. First, that God will soften my wife’s heart to him and to me. Second, that God will make his love for me large in my eyes so I can rest and depend on him for hope, rather than resting in shakable things.
Pray for us.
