Paul, Trusting in God

An Outcome Beyond Our Imagination

I don't know why I get surprised by the goodness of God. God does amazing things for us. When I let go of my worries and give them to God, amazing things happen. I worry. I get stressed out. I try and control the situation, which just gets worse. Then, finally, I truly let go… Continue reading An Outcome Beyond Our Imagination

God is Sovereign

What does the word sovereign mean? It means to have supreme power. God has supreme power over the universe. God decides. Not you. Not me. Only one person determines the outcome. God. Our God in heaven can do whatever he pleases. But our God is in heaven; He does whatever He pleases. --Psalm 115:3 (NKJV).… Continue reading God is Sovereign

Everlasting Consolation

Trusting God With the Outcome

This morning at church, the message was to trust God with the outcome. I really needed to hear this today. Two months ago, I found out that my mom has a brain tumor. She has stage 4 cancer. Her condition is declining. I have been so worried about my mom's upcoming radiation and chemo treatment,… Continue reading Trusting God With the Outcome
