Hello, John and Doves,
 
It is written,
    "Not a word failed of any good thing which the LORD had spoken to the house of Israel. All came to pass."  Joshua 21:45
 
Again, it is written,
    "As for me, I will see Your face in righteousness; I shall be satisfied when I awake in Your likeness."  Psalm 17:15
 
Moreover, it is written,
    "The young lions lack and suffer hunger; But those who seek the LORD shall not lack any good [thing]."  Psalm 34:10
 
David insists,
    "Trust in the LORD, and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness.
    "Delight yourself also in the LORD, And He shall give you the desires of your heart.
    "Commit your way to the LORD, Trust also in Him, And He shall bring [it] to pass.
    "He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light, And your justice as the noonday."  Psalm 37:3-6
 
And to seal the deal, Paul reminds us that,
    "For the gifts and the calling of God [are] irrevocable."  Romans 11:29
 
And:
    "For all the promises of God in Him [are] Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us."  2 Corinthians 1:20
 
In HaShem,
Mike C.

"So That Your Joy May Be Complete"


     Recently, we lost our beloved pet of twelve years.  This little dachshund was a big part of our family, like one of our children, and we grieved for the loss. 

     Although I am reluctant to admit it, I cried out to the Lord in tears & anguish asking “Why Lord, why did You take Precious now?”

     The Spirit answered in the still small voice, “So that your Joy may be Complete.”  
 
     I have spent much time in thought on this, and it has brought me much comfort to search out its meaning.

     What a wonderful Loving Father we have that he concerns Himself with the Complete Joy of his Children—and I pray that I will see my little friend again someday soon.

 
 

     The Lord is Coming Quickly so that Our Joy May be Complete.
