Default I think god works in mysterious ways

I'm a firm believer in God and I really feel he works in mysterious ways.

With all the bad luck I have had in the past 14 months, I have been able to find good luck at the same time. Sure things are still tuff for my family and its going to be ruff till I get healthy and can start to provide for my family...But my point is I made a post on here a while back and All I was asking for was some prayers for my family during these tuff times, and I wont go into details but we have gotten such a outpour of support and I have made a few new friends and they will be friends for life. So I guess what I'm trying to get at is just because I don't have as much as the next guy or this or that , it doesn't matter. If you put your faith in god good things happen and I'm going to put more faith in god because he has shown me that if you pray he will be there for you. So thank you to all that have shown support for my family and always believe in god. Also I really believe there are angels who are here to earn there wings

God bless you all

if you believe in God, you dont do luck...
its all Gods purpose directing your life and all that happens. you just have to look for him in all things at all times.

it is true he will get you thru,pushing,pulling,carrying,shoulder to shoulder-he will be there.

Matthew 5:43-45

"You have heard that it was said, 'Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous."


God is not concerned with our comfort, he is concerned with the Glory of his name. Tough times fall on the righteous AND the unrighteous. What matters is not your comfort or my comfort, but that God is praised, that he receives what he is rightly due. When times are bad, we glorify him. When times are good, we glorify him.

Here is another verse I was looking for the other day, Isaiah 45:7. Don't read it only on the surface, read it in context of the one above, and with an understanding of God's Glory, God's will, and the net result of his action.


I form the light and create darkness,
I bring prosperity and create disaster;
I, the LORD, do all these things.

The sun (or lightbulbs) crate light.
When the earth rotates (or flipping the switch to off) creates darkness.
The stock market brings prosperity.
Tornadoes or hurricanes (or even the stock market) brings disasters.
Only Bill Gates has the power to do all these things. :tonka::tonka:

All proven with science, not religion. (Except for the Bill Gates part, I just thought it was funny because he can do a lot of things)

I'm glad to see God is working your life. Many people on this board have been praying for you. I agree with Dave that bad things happen to all people. We just have to remember to praise God through all of it. God bless your family in all the things they are going through.

Guys, Please PLEASE don't turn this into a Debate. mideerslayer was just thanking everyone and expressing his thoughts about God. You don't have to prove each other right/wrong all the time. This is his thread. NOT YOURS!

I like the way Kerwin creates a quote I never said just to fit his agenda. What a good little brainwashed christian.

As you've learned faith cannot be overstated. Faith is praying to God and believing that, whatever the situation, he will see you through it.

One of my favorite examples of this is how Jehoshaphat responded to imminent attack. (2 Chronicles 20)
