Praise God and Give the Devil a Black Eye!

    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.
