“Shall we accept good from God, and not trouble?”

Job 2:10

One of my friends died in the early morning of Tuesday, 9/11/12.  Over the past few years, she’s been in and out of the hospital, and endured multiple surgeries.  Yet, everyone knew that if she wasn’t in the hospital, she would be in church, praising God for bringing her out – one more time.

Trouble is all around us; and she is just one of several friends that Satan had given several opportunities to curse God and die, but they didn’t.  She didn’t.   Her faith was so strong that I’m dumbstruck by it.  Thinking of the enormity of her faith renders me speechless and makes me cry.

“Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.”

Psalm 116:15

BOW is my first experience in blogging, and my writing has undergone an evolution since I started. I use If I Knew Then What I Know Now to think aloud about my Christian walk. When you read it, my hope is that WE (the BOW community & friends) then discuss how to apply God's word into our everyday lives in a practical manner. As Christian lay-theologians, we'll talk about our world, and how we can be in it but not of it. So whatever your thoughts are about what you read, PLEASE share.
