Vance Havner quote

Vance Havner writes:

God marks across some of our days…

“Will explain later!”

"When before the throne we stand in Him complete, all the riddles that puzzle us here will fall into place and we shall know in fulfillment what we now believe in faith - that all things work together for good in His eternal purpose. No longer will we cry "My God, why?" Instead, "alas" will become "Alleluia". All question marks will be straightened into exclamation points, sorrow will change to singing and pain will be lost in praise."

I feel like I've gotten that message a lot lately.

Corry said...

Good message!
Wow Saija, you and Jel should go into business together. You both take such wonderful pictures. :-)

Many blessings to you, dear sister.

God's Grace.

Hi Saija...
I was so happy yesterday.
Betty and I went to Branford to see a school friend that we used to go to school with in Rivers, Manitoba.
We talked about the good old days on the prairies.
She says when her husband retires they are going to buy a house in Manitoba and use it for holidays. "No Florida for her!" she says.
She wants to spend her vacations in Manitoba!!
Oh the luxury of it all!

Have a blessed weekend Saija, you and your sweetheart...Love Terry

Thanks for the link! I used that quote more than once today while speaking with Christians who are asking "why?".

Have a great weekend. Gotta go. The Senators' game is starting.
