How do you feel about the phrase in Bob Marley’s song, “Every little thing is gonna be alright?” If you are a Christian, you Do know that everything is going to be all right Underneath you are the “everlasting arms.”
But Christians are tempted as much as anyone to despair over the way things is going in their lives and in the world. They too, wonder about the way out of debt or illness or some other tragedy.That’s when we need to remember that the love of Christ is higher, and wider, and deeper than any trouble or tragedy. If we can put these into His loving hands, everything WILL be all right.
Shakespeare came near the truth when he had Hamlet say: “There’s a divinity that shapes our ends….” God’s Word teaches and history confirms, that “all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass.” No person, no matter how, great, is able to control his or her destiny. Our times are in the hands of God. Fortunes amused. Fame achieved. Power attained. These will all crumble, be forgotten, fade away.
But the glory of God is eternal. His glory we can share through faith in Jesus Christ, our Saviour. That faith gives us a sure claim on everlasting blessedness.

The word “good” sounds very much like the word, “God”
The truth is that God is good.
But not everything in life goes smoothly all the time.
The world creaks and groans at times, as do our bodies!
And time and time again our social order and or relationships break down… and we see the results of selfishness and sin.
The miracle of God’s goodness is that He’s dealt with all this through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
He calls us to follow Jesus in faith and love.
And as we heed this call, He shows us how good He really is.
What do you do when someone hurts you? Strike back …or suffer in silence? Neither of those ways will fix things.You can’t just forget it when somebody does something really bad to you that ruins your whole life.
Living with resentment doesn’t really help, but it’s hard to forgive in such a situation. But the best way to solve hurt is to forgive the person who caused it.That’s hard to do. But it is possible. Maybe we can’t forgive…but God can.
Through Jesus Christ, God forgives us our wrongs.This makes it possible for us also to forgive those who wrong us.

By world standards, most of us are pretty well off. Yet when we go to the store, we usually see one more thing that we just have to have. God’s been very good to us. Yet we often fail to recognize His goodness. Instead, we focus on the extra things we think we need. To bring us back to focus on His goodness, God sent Jesus Christ into our world.
Through Jesus, God shows us that we already have the one thing we had to have: His forgiveness.Through Jesus, God calls us back to follow him and to thank Him for his goodness.

The little girl said. “This flower is too pretty to be planted in such dirt.” She pulled it up by the roots and washed it off.
The gardener came along. “You’re killing my prize plant!” he said. I mixed the soil especially for that plant. That’s the best spot for it. Let’s put it back.
Sometimes we feel so down in our trials and difficulties that we think, “If only I could be somewhere else! Then things would be better.”
When we realize that God has planted us in the best place for us to grow and mature, that Christ Jesus has saved us, then we CAN “bloom where we were planted.”

A man asked a preacher if there was cricket in heaven. The preacher didn’t know, so he said he’d have to ask God. He came back the next day and said: “I’ve got good news and bad new.” “What’s the good News?’ the man asked. “There definitely is cricket in heaven.” replied the Preacher. “That’s great …. and the bad new?” “You’re the batsman at 8 am. tomorrow!”
We joke about death a lot. Maybe because we’re uneasy about dying. (The Bible says we were never meant to die.) Death came into the world when people messed up their relationship with God. But God has a solution. In His Son, Jesus, He offers life beyond the grave.

Driving along the Boulevard in Kingston, I came upon a brightly painted van. On the side were the words in colourful letters: LOVE BUS. Trouble was, the LOVE BUS had broken.
Like the bus, LOVE itself does break down at times. Doesn’t it?
Jesus teaches those who follow Him to love as He has loved … freely, sacrificially, continually. But love breaks down when we give in to selfishness and sin. What puts love back together? This: “I’m sorry. Forgive me.”
Jesus DOES forgive our broken down love when we come to Him with repentant hearts. He restores us and renews His Spirit to show love through us to others.

“THIS IS A TELECOMMUNICATIONS ANNOUNCEMENT! The number you have dialed has been disconnected. Thank you.”
Sometimes it’s just that we’ve dialed the wrong number. But sometimes the number we dialed has been cut off. That’s frustrating!
For too many people, God is like a phone that has been disconnected…misfortune…shattered dreams…futile attempts to find meanings in life. All these can lead people to think God doesn’t exist.
But God exists. He’s not a disconnected number. He comes to meet us in the person of Jesus Christ. Jesus is our connection to God. And knowledge of Jesus is yours through the Bible.
