Monday Encouragement

It is not over…in the end, we will win.

Donald J. Trump

I listened to President Donald Trump’s speech last night. I want to make a note of something important he said, “It is not over…in the end, we will win.” What path winning takes, we don’t know at this point. We do know that Americans overwhelmingly voted for President Trump. If you did not hear his speech, it is online HERE. Like an earlier American president said, “Facts are stubborn things…”

Personally, this skulduggery with our presidential election has caused me to investigate deeply into election fraud. It has also put me in contact with some other resources that I think will help those reading my posts. Stay tuned. Perhaps living with China Joe for a few months is waking folks up to the hard reality of who is trying to run America.

We know untold millions of Americans and people worldwide are praying for our nation to survive as a free republic and not a totalitarian state. I believe God hears our prayers. I think today’s reading from Streams in the Desert applies to all of us. Here it is:


Consider the work of God: for who can make that straight, which he hath made crooked

Eccles. 7:13

Often God seems to place His children in positions of profound difficulty, leading them into a wedge from which there is no escape; contriving a situation which no human judgment would have permitted, had it been previously consulted. The very cloud conducts them thither. You may be thus involved at this very hour.


It does seem perplexing and very serious to the last degree, but it is perfectly right. The issue will more than justify Him who has brought you hither. It is a platform for the display of His almighty grace and power.

He will not only deliver you; but in doing so, He will give you a lesson that you will never forget, and to which, in many a psalm and song, in after days, you will revert. You will never be able to thank God enough for having done just as He has.
–Selected


We may wait till He explains,
Because we know that Jesus reigns.
It puzzles me; but, Lord, Thou understandest,
And wilt one day explain this crooked thing.
Meanwhile, I know that it has worked out Thy best–
Its very crookedness taught me to cling.
Thou hast fenced up my ways, made my paths crooked,
To keep my wand’ring eyes fixed on Thee;
To make me what I was not, humble, patient;
To draw my heart from earthly love to Thee.
So I will thank and praise Thee for this puzzle,
And trust where I cannot understand.
Rejoicing Thou dost hold me worth such testing,
I cling the closer to Thy guiding hand.
–F.E.M.I.


The Streams in the Desert devotional was written by Mrs. Charles Cowman in the early 1900s. It is as relevant today as when first penned! You can sign up for a daily dose online HERE.

God bless you always,

Psalm 37

The Heritage of the Righteous and the Calamity of the Wicked

Do not fret because of evildoers,
Nor be envious of the workers of iniquity.
2 For they shall soon be cut down like the grass,
And wither as the green herb.

3 Trust in the Lord, and do good;
Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness.
4 Delight yourself also in the Lord,
And He shall give you the desires of your heart.
