Purpose Statement

My holy ambition is to bring glory to God through the study of His Word. I am passionate about the observation, interpretation and application of God's Word in our lives.

I was visiting with some friends this morning who were commenting about God's providence. They both work for a non profit pregnancy center where they fight for the lives of unborn children.  We were discussing how God is truly in control of everything in life. Nothing happens apart from Him.  Even the times when a staff member resigned God was there to fill the void. Sometimes even before a staff member quit.

As I sat there talking to these ladies I mused how truly sovereign is the Lord. The very fact that I had gone to the center on this particular morning was evidence of His providence. I heard the testimonies of two young women who had aborted their children but had found forgiveness and grace in the Lord Jesus Christ.  They were both riveting stories.  God had certainly wrought miracles in their lives.  Now they stand as proof that God's intent is to work all things together for our good and His glory.  He makes sinful people into real trophies of His grace as it states in Ephesians 2: 7 to 10. 

Dr. R.C. Sproul is fond of saying that no random molecule exists for God is control of even that. There are no maverick atoms that exceed the bounds of the Lord and Savior.  That has to be comforting to all those who are in the midst of dark trials.  God has allowed the hardship for reasons of His own.  Our best response is to be quiet before Him and wait for His providence in our circumstances. It is an active waiting that obeys in the mean time.  God has a plan and Genesis 28:15 declares God won't leave us until "{He} has done what {He} promises to do."  Isaiah 46: 10 states that His "counsel shall stand and {He} will accomplish all {His}purpose." May you take comfort in that this very day.
