We gave away copies of "Gospel Meditations for the Hurting" for Mother's Day 2014 at Crossroad. Little did I know that the Scripture meditations would sustain me through the death of my little brother Josiah (4 days after his 14th birthday). Here is an excerpt from Day 9: Suffering and Sovereignty: Part 1- Read I Peter 4:19

"We have no right to imagine God as we want Him to be. And honestly, those answers are more troubling than the truth. Does it frighten you that God ordains even the falling of a sparrow (Matthew 10:29-31)? It shouldn't. It should comfort you. What alternative do you prefer: to be at the mercy of evil men? To be at the mercy of Satan? To be at the mercy of bad luck--what Shakespeare called 'the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune'? No, we are far better off in the hands of a sovereign, wise, and good God, who alone ordains (and limits) our calamities.

What is God's purpose in allowing His people to suffer? Time may tell. J.C. Ryle's loss of a family fortune propelled him into ministry. John Bunyan's jail cell, intended to keep him from preaching to hundreds, allowed him to write to millions. The lice in Corrie ten Boom's quarters at Ravensbruck tormented her, but they also kept guards from discovering the Bible study she and her sister Betsie led. Jim Elliot and his fellow martyrs accomplished more for missions through their deaths than their lives. Ron Hamilton and Joni Eareckson Tada stumbled on stones that eventually became platforms for their Christ-exalting ministries.

Perhaps your own hardships will never lead to an 'aha' moment. Perhaps all you'll see this side of heaven is a messy bunch of knots. But eternity will show that when your life is viewed from God's side, those knots were part of an exquisitely crafted tapestry. May we learn to handle our distresses with the faith of David Brainerd: 'My soul was sweetly resigned to God's disposal of me, in every regard; and I saw there had nothing happened to me but what was best for me' (Memoirs of Brainerd, p. 94).

Let the gospel assure you that your suffering isn't random but is according to God's will.--Chris"

Thank you so much for posting this. A lot of people were praying for Josiah and it's good to know his troubles are over. We never know when tragedy will strike and it's neat how God prepared his family.

What an inspiring video. My wife's grandfather had polio as a child and experienced many of these trials. Go Jeremy!

You've probably never seen this guy, but you've heard his voice many times. Now you have the chance to meet him.

Well, hush my puppies - it didn't take long for Michael Dell to step up to Chromebook once he got a hold of the company. Dell is aiming their Chroembook at education markets, which makes sense, given their strong enterprise focus. Looks like HP will have some competition.

It's very Sony for them to allow non-proprietary hard disks -- they did the same thing with ps3.

This might be the very worst lunch buffet I have ever had. The food was disgusting and the selection was small. But at least the service was good. Don't go.

Very good service. Food was hot and tasty. The restaurant was clean, but small. The tables were clean, but the chairs were not overly comfortable. Very good value.

Skimpy on sides, but the food tastes great. Milkshakes are awesome.

I'm a youth pastor and I take our teens to this Chick-fil-A on our way to camp every year. They are friendly and do a great job of serving large groups. I always try to call ahead just to give them a heads up, and they always do well.
