God is in Control

Before the Creation of the earth God ordained that I would be abused.  God ordained that it would take me 15 years two recover from abuse.  God ordained that I would become an ALS patient.

“Come, let us return to the LORD.
He has torn us to pieces
     but he will heal us;
he has injured us
     but he will bind up our wounds.
2 After two days he will revive us;
     on the third day he will restore us,
     that we may live in his presence.
3 Let us acknowledge the LORD;
     let us press on to acknowledge him.
As surely as the sun rises,
     he will appear;
he will come to us like the winter rains,
     like the spring rains that water the earth.”

Hosea 6:1-3 (NIV)

God lavished his grace upon me when he redeemed me and helped me to forgive my Father and reestablished a relationship with my father.  God has been merciful to me throughout my life giving me Debbie and four children who love me.  The first 30 years of life was emotionally painful.  However, I would not want to change a thing in my life because God met me when I was at the lowest point in my life.  God showed me compassion and comfort equipping to show people compassion and comfort them. 

   3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. 5 For just as the sufferings of Christ flow over into our lives, so also through Christ our comfort overflows. 6 If we are distressed, it is for your comfort and salvation; if we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which produces in you patient endurance of the same sufferings we suffer. 7 And our hope for you is firm, because we know that just as you share in our sufferings, so also you share in our comfort.

     8 We do not want you to be uninformed, brothers, about the hardships we suffered in the province of Asia. We were under great pressure, far beyond our ability to endure, so that we despaired even of life. 9 Indeed, in our hearts we felt the sentence of death. But this happened that we might not rely on ourselves but on God, who raises the dead. 10 He has delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will deliver us. On him we have set our hope that he will continue to deliver us, 11 as you help us by your prayers. Then many will give thanks on our behalf for the gracious favor granted us in answer to the prayers of many.

2 Corinthians 1:3-  (NIV)

And

28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. 29 For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. 30 And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.

     31 What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all–how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? 33 Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. 34 Who is he that condemns? Christ Jesus, who died–more than that, who was raised to life–is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? 36 As it is written:
“For your sake we face death all day long;
     we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”

37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 8:28-39 (NIV)

And

11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.

Jer 29:10-13 (NIV)

And

15 For this is what the high and lofty One says–
     he who lives forever, whose name is holy:
“I live in a high and holy place,
     but also with him who is contrite and lowly in spirit,
to revive the spirit of the lowly
     and to revive the heart of the contrite.

Isaiah 57:15 (NIV)

And

16 I heard and my heart pounded,
     my lips quivered at the sound;
decay crept into my bones,
     and my legs trembled.
Yet I will wait patiently for the day of calamity
     to come on the nation invading us.
17 Though the fig tree does not bud
     and there are no grapes on the vines,
though the olive crop fails
     and the fields produce no food,
though there are no sheep in the pen
     and no cattle in the stalls,
18 yet I will rejoice in the LORD,
     I will be joyful in God my Savior.

19 The Sovereign LORD is my strength;
     he makes my feet like the feet of a deer,
     he enables me to go on the heights.

For the director of music. On my stringed instruments.

Habakkuk  3:16-19 (NIV)
