THOUGHTS FOR THE TOUGH TIMES

In The Beginning


Some years ago, a noted astronomer spoke at a college assembly on the subject of the origin of the universe.

The lecturer began by declaring himself an atheist and emphasized that his theory of creation did not include a Supreme Creator.

For an hour he presented a very convincing discourse on this theory.

He spoke of the manner in which the earth and other heavenly bodies had been created by cosmic dust.

When he finished the lecture and asked for questions from the group,

the obvious question was immediately asked by a young freshman: "But, Professor, where did the cosmic dust come from?"

The Voice of God


Have you ever listened, really listened?
Not to the sounds of a busy world; people walking, people talking,
horns blowing, factories going, rushing, rushing, faster, faster.
Have you ever listened, really listened?
To leaves talking, as the wind whispers through the trees,
to rain falling against a tin roof, or against a window, or upon the dry earth.
Have you ever listened, really listened?
To a brook in the meadow, to a cricket in the night,
to a bird singing in the dawn of a summer day, to a baby crying, a breeze sighing.
Have you ever listened, really listened, to the voice of God?

Never Alone


I never once felt that I was alone. I always felt that God was there with me.
And because of His presence, I felt contact with all other men and women everywhere.

God's Presence


There are times when we don't feel God's presence.
That is when we walk by faith.

The Easy Way


The trouble with many people these days is that they want to reach the
promised land without going through the wilderness.


We will get through the wilderness of these tough times. But it isn't easy. Yet we have each other.

And don't forget, never forget, God Himself is always with us.
