Well, where was God?

I think God did show up.

He showed up in the lives of teachers who put their lives between a gunman and their students.

He showed up in the policemen who rushed into the school not knowing whether there would be a barrage of bullets.

He showed up in the form of hugs and tears for children, parents, and teachers who had lived through the slaughter.

He showed up at the overflow Church services where people lit candles and prayed.

He showed up at the White House where the president invoked His Name and quoted from His Book.

Good Gifts

The conclusion is unavoidable: self-salvation simply does not work. Man has no way to save himself. But God has a way. Where man fails God excels. Salvation comes from heaven downward, not earth upward. “Every good action and every perfect gift is from God” (James 1:17). Please note: Salvation is God-given, God-driven, God-empowered, and God-originated. The gift is not from man to God. It is from God to man.

"I Prayed About It"

This is code. It means

“I want it,”

“I am going to get it,” and

“I don’t care what you or anyone else says.”

My daughter was three-years-old and enjoying a snowy, wintry day when she discovered that snow was great for both sledding and eating. When my wife saw her eating the snow, she told her that snow was not for eating and that she needed to stop.

That night our daughter added this to her prayer before she went to bed: “And Jesus, is it okay if I eat snow?” Immediately her eyes opened wide, “Mommy, he said YES!”
