  1. We have to in the hard times keep our eyes on God no matter what. Yes it hard sometimes to do. We sometimes can say God why did you let this happen. Why God did you let my love one die do young. Or so suddenly. One minute they were there the next they were gone. That happened to my Favourite Uncle one time. I will never forget getting the phone call my world seemed to crumble before me. For his wife it was worse. He went to bed for a lie down and never woke up again. Sad for rest of family too. That why it make me say it’s so important to be saved. As you never know the hour or day your life can stop. But sometimes it doesn’t still make people think that way. It still hasn’t made any of my family think that way. But I still pray for them. It seems so on fair. Like we can go round in our head asking God why did this person get healed and not my love one why did they die etc. Especially if they were saved. They did everything thing right. Said their prayers read your word the Bible and stood on the promises in the word of God. It all seems so on fair. But we have to see and know that God knew the bigger picture in all theses things in life. Our is not to question why. Just keep trusting God no matter what. When any of these things happen. We are to keep our eyes fixed on God no matter what keep standing on the Promises in is word the Bible and Praying no matter what. Don’t let the Old Devil have the last laugh. By saying I got them to dought God who God is who he says he his and who his word the Bible says he his. So I the Devil am now laughing saying see your faith in this God you believe in after all is not that strong. Ha ha. So don’t let the Old Devil have you feeling like that. Get into the word of God the Bible and Prayer. Tell the Old Devil I am not going to listen to you. I am Devil going to listen to what God’s says through his Word the Bible and Prayer. Plus also through the Holy Spirit. As I know my God sees all and knows the beginning from the end. We only know part. I tell you Devil I am going to do what God tells me and not let you win by having the last laugh. Because I server a big mighty Faithful God who Love Me. Even in the midst of saddens and happiness. Thank you incourage for another excellent reading Dawn Ferguson-Little xxxxx

  2. I needed to be reminded of God’s faithfulness today and all of His paths lead to the Messiah. I have been going through a hard season of loss, loss of marriage, loss of a home. I’ve been living with family after being a homeowner for 30 years. Naomi’s story is a beautiful example of God’s faithfulness.

    • Nancy I will say a prayer for you. Not nice what you are going through. Or have went through if just going through it. Marriage brake up after such a long time. You believe when you make your vows it is for life. I know what it like to did with a person to do with Marriage brake up the person she though it was for life the marriage. It not nice. God does answer pray. He does make people in the marriage that went through it strong again. I pray God will be with you in the healing of it all. You can and will be strong too with God’s help. Remember no matter what you are a beautiful Daughter of the king. That king is Jesus he is with you through it all. He will never leave you. Remember this verse also. Proverbs 3 v 5 Trust in Lord with all thine heart. Xxx

  3. This post was very encouraging and a wonderful reminder of God’s faithfulness. Praying for you, Nancy, as you go through a huge adjustment having been a homeowner for thirty years and then losing not only your home, but your marriage. I trust God has a plan for you and I know He will guide you and make a new way for you as you trust in His faithfulness. As always,thank you for your insightful words too, Dawn.

  4. Trillia,

    We must know in our hearts that God is faithful ALL the time. God said we would have trials & tribulations down here. That doesn’t mean that God is “out to get us”. He has plans for us. Plans to prosper us & not for harm. We must walk this journey He has us on with faith & trust. Just because we hit detours on our journey doesn’t mean that God isn’t working on our behalf. We must be like Ruth & cling to Him faithfully. He will give you huge blessings for your ashes.

    Blessings 🙂

  5. I am sorry about the loss of your father and sister. May God continue to comfort you. Your illustration of Naomi is remarkable. She endured a lot of loss and was concerned about her two daughters in laws. She was had her bitter tears redeemed. I am reminded we can be completely honest with God about where we are at in our circumstances . Only God can keep us and illuminate our vision in our circumstances. Thank you for sharing your soul and insight. I was blessed. May God bless you.
