Jehovah Shalom - Jesus is our Peace

In a Bible that I gave to Daddy in 1969, he wrote:

When hard times come
Remember past experiences
when God brought you through.
Jesus knows all about your storms.
He sees all the circumstances.
Jesus will meet you in the middle of your storm.

He quoted these two verses:

Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. 1 John 5:14

And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. Romans 8:28

I know that many people in Texas, Mexico, Oklahoma and other places are suffering from flooding and tornado damage. We cannot always see the storms ahead, and even our best plans are sometimes to no avail. But God sees and He is there ahead of us.

Daddy could not have known that the words he wrote so long ago would be so pertinent today but God knew and shared this gift from daddy at this time. Love you sis.

My sis in law gave my Dad a bible. When he died, she requested to have it. We agreed. Dad had written all over the Bible, Christian verses and others. Areal treasure.

How special that your Dad had written that in the Bible! God of the good times is still God of the bad times. In fact, when we are weak, that is when He shows us His wonderful strength.
Blessings and Peace to you!
