Have you ever seen or heard about a tragedy and said to yourself, why did God allow THAT to happen? Or maybe things don’t work out the way you expect them throughout your day and again, you find yourself questioning God.
That is the thing about God that a lot of us quite often forget….is that He is GOD and WE are people. His thoughts, mind and understanding is infinite and are FAR above ours, while the minds of we as humans are finite.
The following story is a great illustration which may give you a sense of understanding as to why God does what He does…

Did God create everything that exists? Does evil exist? Did God create evil?
A University professor at a well-known institution of higher learning challenged his students with this question. “Did God create everything that exists?” A student bravely replied, “Yes he did!”
“God created everything?” The professor asked.
“Yes sir, he certainly did,” the student replied.
The professor answered, “If God created everything; then God created evil. And, since evil exists, and according to the principal that our works define who we are, then we can assume God is evil.”... Read More
Generally speaking, today’s world is becoming a more and more depressing, discouraging, and sad place to live. People seem to be more selfish than they were years ago and the most important focus in a person’s life is the all-important “me.”
I thought that it would be a good idea to create a blog that focused on people GIVING things to other individuals rather than trying to GET things. So, I decided to collect and share some short stories of love that I found from around the web, family, friends, and other people who contributed stories. It is my hope that these stories will inspire... Read More
One day a girl, Sara, who was fifteen years old, came home from school in a very bad mood. She'd had a fight with her best friend that day and it hadn't turned out well at all.
"Sara!" her mom yelled. "What are you doing? You know to do your chores right when you get home! And you're late!"
"Coming, Mom!" Sara yelled, getting up and stomping towards the kitchen. "What?" she snapped as her mother gave her a stern look, annoyed.
"You'd better straighten up your attitude, young lady," her mom warned, "or you'll be grounded."
"Whatever." Sara began to throw around... Read More
There was once an American marvel which was “born” in 1930 and affected millions upon millions of people world-wide each year until it met its untimely end last year. What was the name of this wonderful item? It was called…the Twinkie.
The world was saddened to hear that this popular, tasty treat was going to be discontinued (along with all of the other snacks that were being made from this company) because the Hostess Company had gone bankrupt and would no longer grace us with their little, cream,-filled, golden yellow cakes of white deliciousness.
Well, I have GREAT news…THE... Read More
Like any good mother, when Karen found out that another baby was on the way, she did what she could to help her 3-year-old son, Michael, prepare for a new sibling. They found out that the new baby was going be a girl, and day after day, night after night, Michael sang to his sister in mommy's tummy. He was building a bond of love with his little sister before he even met her.

Soon it was every five minutes, every three, every... Read More
I was reading a story by a friend of mine at “Pastor Mike Says” the other day which really made me realize that not all things happen for reasons that we think. Sometimes things may occur to us that seem to have a definite clear-cut reason as to why it happened but actually, it took place for a completely different reason from what we thought.
How many times in our lives to we react and / or jump to a conclusion before we know the real reason something happened. The following true story is a great illustration about jumping to conclusions and dealing with the “bricks” that occasionally... Read More
