Some Encouraging thoughts from Johny (Late John George Samuel)

Love and Sacrifice
  • The pain we go through can become a blessing to us and others too. (Gal. 3:13; Phil. 4:19; 2 Cor. 8:9)
  • Never fear to risk our lives when it comes to glorifying God. (Job. 1:21; Rom. 4:21; Ps. 34:1)
  • The Lord Jesus is so great that no one can separate us from His love. (1 John. 4:18; Eph. 3:17; Rom. 8:35)

Right Response
  • Passive faith praises in the light, when sun shines. Active faith will praise in the darkest night. Which faith is yours? (Is. 38:5; Ps. 42:8; Dan. 6:6)
  • When I cannot enjoy the faith of assurance, I live by the faith of adherence. (Luke. 17:5; Acts. 16:5; 1 Cor. 16:13)
  • He never comes too late; He knows what is best; so, vex not yourself in vain until He comes – REST. (Luke. 1:20; 1 Pet. 5:6; Gal. 6:9)

Facing Difficulties
  • When the skies grow dark, the stars begin to shine. (1 John. 2:8; Is. 45:1; 60:1-2; Col. 1:12)
  • Knowing that God is in control can keep us from being discouraged as we face difficult situations. (Is. 51:22; 58:11)
  • You cannot prevent the birds of sorrow from flying over your head, but you can prevent them from building nests in your hair. (John. 14:1; Phil. 4:6; Col. 3;12)
