Praise God and Give the Devil a Black Eye!

May 07, 2013 4 Comments

What does one do when they get up and find out their website isn't working?  I

know what I did..I freaked!  I know I shouldn't have..but..I did.  My bad.

I finally calmed myself down (I'm a bit high strung if you haven't and I took a deep breath and said, Jesus I''m giving you thanks and praise for this.  There is a reason this happened.  I sure don't know what it is..but..I'm giving you praise" (1 Thessalonians 5:18)


Anyhoo..come to find out it was because the credit card the domain server had was expired...thus, my website was redirected to one of their pages.  <sigh>


All of this made me think of Job.  I've had a lot of things going on with my "life" lately and this was just one of the many things.  


Besides Jesus Christ, nobody in the Bible suffered worse than Job. He lost everything..his family, his home, his name it!   His wife turned against him and even his friends were of no help.  But in spite of all of this, he praised the Lord, and even thanked him for the hard times. 


I know some folks are saying, "Hey, that dude was seriously messed up!"...yet..he wasn't.


I know it is hard to have a grateful heart when everything seems to be going wrong.  Yet,  when Jesus was being crucified, he didn't complain...he said "Father, forgive..."

It is important to give thanks during the difficult time as well as during the good times.  It makes us better people! :) 


So now, I'm going to Praise God and Give the Devil a Black Eye!  


May God bless you for your love and are like family to me! 

Love and Blessings, Wendy C.

Hi Wendy

Your daily posts have encouraged me immensely during times of intense warfare. Paradoxically our strength is at its’ highest when we are weak.
2 Corinthians 12:9 “My grace is sufficient for you for my power is made perfect in weakness”.

I would like to thank you personally for your daily encouragement and we have the assurance of Victory always by Christs’ Resurrection (Matthew 28).

The devil is a liar (John 8:44) and ultimately God will Reign! …For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet. The last enemy to be destroyed is death. (1 Corinthians 15: 25-26) Amen!

May God bless you and your family abundantly as you continue with your Apostolate.

I look forward to your posts, hearing how you and your family are and being part of your family in Christ.

With love in Christ Jesus

Thanks so much for all the inspiring posts! My husband and I enjoy them very much. This one in particular hits close to home. No matter how bizarre a cross can get there is always some sort of needed lesson or greater good!:)

Wendy, thank you so much for giving us such a fabulous Christian example!! My temperament is much like your own, but I have a tough time controlling it. So I check in with your emails,etc, to see how you’ve
handled situations and mostly you do give me a wonderful example!!

I thank God for you and for all your family! We are all enriched by knowing you, and thank you for sharing!!

Love in JMJ,
Deb Eklof
