What we do in the crisis always depends on whether we see the difficulties in the light of God, or God in the shadow of the difficulties.

From Psalm 27:1:  “The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear?  The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?”

G. Campbell Morgan (1863-1945) was a British preacher, evangelist, and author.  He was one of the most reverent and competent Christian voices during his lifetime.

Life’s Breakwater

From John 4:13-14:  “Jesus said to her, ‘Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again, but those who drink of the water that I will give them will never be thirsty.  The water that I will give will become in them a spring of water gushing up to eternal life.'”

Haunting landscape of needs

Darkness, breathless with fear

Back streets can never hide

Overflowing with tears

 

Facing hunger-filled void

Shadows filled with man’s greed

Overburdened labors

Breathing amongst ragweed

 

Walking with heart of pain

Emptiness without dreams

Thirst waiting to be quenched

Beholding mercy’s stream

 

Hearing sorrowful cries

Clamorous, selfish strife

Voice speaking, Son of God

Rising above each life

 

Flowing freshness of grace

Well of Living Water

Each heart again restored

Forming life’s breakwater

From John 14:1-2:  “Do not let your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in Me.  In My Father’s house there are many dwelling places.  If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you?”

The only way to learn strong faith is to endure great trials.

From 1 Peter 1:6-7:  “ In this you rejoice, even if now for a little while you have had to suffer various trials, so that the genuineness of your faith—being more precious than gold that, though perishable, is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.”

German-born George Muller (1805-1898) was a Christian evangelist.  Later in his life, he and his wife spent 17 years involved with missionary travel throughout the world.
