We may not know much about the thrill of surfing the "tube" of a perfect wave but surfing the "tube of life" in the turbulent seas of today's world can be a hazardous experience to avoid being dumped and drowned in the swirling perilous waters of violence, narcissism and hurtful mockery.
In the dumping experiences on today's wild sea of life there exists a thrilling and Perfect wave "tube" that Christ has provided that has no surprising "dump of death" but rather an experience of great peace now and the exhilarating emergence at the end of His "tube" into Everlasting Life.
You may have (and what person hasn't) had some rough experiences in your 'tube of life' that has rolled in upon you and is hurtling you towards Eternity. And you may also often find yourself asking the Big Question ..... "What is Life all about? Really, what is the reality of it all?
The following (taken from a website promotion brochure) is a brief description of this website contents, which contains some of the many sided answers to life's Big Questions which are wonderfully provided by the great love of God and found in the Bible.
The site is arrayed in a 'static' and not a 'blog' format so that most of the site contents are in plain view, sectioned into menus.
There is no claim to fame or web site dazzle. The presentation is bright and enthusiastic about faith, hope and the love of God in Christ.
There are approximately 500 illustrated articles covering many topics of the Christian life, along with much for those who are seeking answers, those who are broken and troubled, those who are are anxious about life and death. Irrefutable realities for the atheist, skeptic, and agnostic; an answer to Richard Dawkins book "The God Delusion" called "The God delusion ...Delusion"
Links are provided to other websites of interest such as the astounding evidences of "intelligent design" in creation found at "Creation Research.net" website.
One very special menu is that of "Pilgrim's Progress" which has been broken up into 30 segments for ease of reading. These articles practically fill the "Most Popular" list. The journey of Pilgrim from the "City of destruction" to the "Celestial city" is nothing short of thrilling. Years ago when the world was more sensible about spiritual things Pilgrim's Progress was part of the school curriculum because of the sheer beautiful principles to build any nation upon. The good and unsavoury characters met along Pilgrim's way illustrate great lessons for humanity: Such characters as - Obstinate, Pliable, Evangelist, Mr. Worldly Wiseman, Good-will, Formalist and Hypocrisy, Faithful, Mr. Talkative, Lord Hate-good, Hopeful, and Giant despair. There are many others with much to guard one's life against to avoid serious pitfalls. The Pilgrim's Progress series is stacked with original wonderfully descriptive sketches providing extra enjoyment in following the journey.
The various "Menus" provide at a glance the site content in those articles listed under that menu heading; for example - "Tasty Menu for lost Sheep" is for those who don't know the way through life and death to eternity. 'Promise for You" is for those who are looking for any of the countless promises in the Word of God. The Menu "Emergency 000 Help when" is a list of noted encouragements and promise verses provided in the "Gideons Bible" found in Hospitals, Motels, Prisons, Schools and many other places. There is much more. Investigate the site and be lifted up! God bless.
* THINKING IT OVER. *
Psalm 92:5 (KJV)
"O LORD, how great are thy works! and thy thoughts are very deep."
>> "THESE LITTLE TROUBLES ARE GETTING US READY" <<
(2 CORINTHIANS 4:17) CEV.
Jesus said we'd have problems (John 16:33). Nobody gets a free pass. Solve one problem and another's waiting to take its place.
They're not all big, but they're all necessary to your spiritual growth! How do you measure the strength of anything? By testing it!
Listen: "Don't be shocked that you are going through testing. It will prepare you" (1Pe 4:12-13 CEV).
David wrote: "The Lord is close to the broken-hearted" (Ps
Your most life-changing experiences will often come during your darkest days - when your heart's broken, you feel abandoned, you're out of options, your pain levels are through the roof - and you turn to God. That's when you learn to pray heartfelt, honest-to-God prayers. When you're in pain you don't have the energy for superficial ones.
God could have kept Joseph out of jail, Daniel out of the lion's den, Jeremiah out of the slimy pit and Paul from being shipwrecked, but He didn't And the result? Every one of them was drawn closer to God - and impacted their world!
Our problems force us to look to God and depend on Him, instead of ourselves. This is especially hard on super-achievers like Paul. Listen: "We saw how powerless we were to help ourselves; but that was good, for then we put everything into the hands of God, who alone could save us" (2Co 1:9 TLB).
You'll never know that God's all you need, until God's all you've got! So today, place all your needs into His capable, loving hands and watch what happens.
