Turning Trials into Blessings

I really enjoy eating. I could easily become the world's fattest man, if I let myself go. I could just eat and eat and eat.

I also notice that many times when I get into an unhealthy pattern of overeating I get sick afterward. Being sick is no fun. But the good part about being sick is that it helps to get me out of the "pigging out" cycle. In fact, when I'm sick, I just don't feel like eating. Whenever I'm sick, I try to eat light (soups, salads).

There are some things that confuse me.

It has been said that God is all and

How much of everything is ALL?

Eph 4:6 one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.

Let's start with God. He created ALL things. He holds them all together by his might hand. He set the heavens in place

Will You Forgive me?

When forgiveness is requested, the focus isn't on where it needs to be. When there is an ongoing problem, forgiveness is not the issue. Repairing of the damages and a change of behavior by the offender is what is needed. When there is a genuine change, then forgiveness is often a natural result of the changed behavior. But that often takes time (sometimes months and years). The longer the offense has been ongoing, and the greater the offence, the longer time that is needed for true forgiveness to occur, if it ever happens.

"I Believe!"

Over my 60 years of life I have heard many people say, "I believe..." in Jesus, in God, etc. Some say this with such a conviction or with such emotion or force in their voice.

One hard FACT for many of us to accept is, "Just because I believe something doesn't make it true." Belief is not the same thing as truth. Belief is not the same thing as reality. Spoken words of belief is a mental construct. Just because I say, or I yell, that I believe, that doesn't mean that I truly believe.
