    One of the joys of knowing the Lord is the loving care He provides in your life. It is these moments that confirm that He loves you. This thread is dedicated to testimonies of these moments.

    Recently I had to made a journey from Minot ND to Alabama. It is about a 1700 mile journey. The vehicle is a 2004 Grand Marquis which has seen better days. One of the many problems with the vehicle include worn tires, a water slow leak that can not be found, some strange knocking sound that is not from the engine, and a broken window. With little funds, black ice, winds, snowy conditions and not all on the same piece of road or at the same time, throughout the journey my granddaughter and I travelled. Because of the road conditions and granddaughter coming down with bronchitis, I drove the whole way. The idea of shift driving was out. Instead of three days, it was a five day journey. It was probably better this way, since she was not use to there kind of road conditions. Let's say she was under the weather in more ways than one.

    We made it without incident. Then the water pump blew so hard it took out the serpentine belt. To me, this is the Lord's hand taking care of us on this journey. I love Him. He is so good to me.

    Do you have a time when the Lord's wing was over you?

    I don't want to go into a long post, but the times I have most clearly sensed the presence of God have been at the bottom, when things have been the most painful, when I have screamed at God "Why" and he has not told me, but I have gotten tired of being angry, and a great peace comes over me.

    Psalm 139:8 If I make my bed in hell, you are there.

    I've let go of the need to know why
    For you know better than I

    Amazing how few have a day to day experience of God or how little they have to share of Him in their daily lives. It could be as simple as timing of events, timing of two getting together, timing of conversations that come up, timing of answers to prayer... etc.

    Threads after threads of theological arguments from heaven to earth, politics to religion and their mix, from ancestry, histories, languages, translations, etc, but getting real with Him and sharing that.... all I hear is crickets.

    Last year was quite a challenge what with losing my dad and employment changes.

    Towards the end of last year I remember sitting down and reflecting on the where money for food and the bills was going to come from since substitute teaching is next to none right now and I had lost my job as a result as of the grieving process hitting me in Sept. Of course, I asked the Lord but this time I ended our chat with "but you are my Abba, and I trust You that you will make things ok". I was reminded of how I had spoken healing over my right hand as arthritis runs on both sides of my family and I could feel my joint seizing up and becoming painful (funnily enough right after I turned 50 lol). The hand got healed. So with me recalling that incident I chose to not give way to fear but to trust in the Lord with all my heart.

    Well I have been out of work formally since Oct, I've only been called out for work 3 times between Oct and now. And yet The Lord has made sure that all of my bills have been paid and we have food, new clothes. All kinds of things seem to last. The child maintenance has stretched further, we received a replacement car for next to nothing. Abba has provided for me and the children without me needing to ask anyone for help.

    It has encouraged me so much and has helped me to bounce back for 2018

    I can never listen to that song without tearing up lol.

    When I was married to my ex, I use to watch Joseph with my daughter while he was out and that song in particular, brought me much comfort when things back then was tough.

    I am under spiritual war with my church in Beijing. The church leader said my spirit was in chaos. Maybe she was right, but which one was not in chaos? I answered her everyone had the tendency to be deceitful, including the church members, and few in church were pure and simple like another pastor and his child in my church. This pastor and his child were just with us. We were sharing a topic of “love”. Last we referred to “love your enemy”. Recently I nearly want to leave this church for another preacher said my faith was wrong. I only keep polite but don’t want to say anything to him. May God not let the theological deceit provoke my deceit, and protect me under His Wings. Theological conflict can transfer to racial and political. I also have the bad tendency to utilize the spiritual racial and political power to win the war.

    That is awesome. Love how the Lord looks after us. Thank you for giving us a glimpse into your personal relationship with Him, and how He is such a friend to you. May you continue to be blessed with His Presence in your life.

    Your personal relationship with Him, will be the foundation that withstands the theological wind storm that circles many "church" camps. Hang in there and continue to reflect His love and character. May you be blessed with His eyes to see, and ears to hear, and continue to be strong in following His leading through it all. Patience has its virtue.
