When things happen that we don’t understand, God is still in control.

  1. Amen pastor always enjoy listening to your guys's sermons and always know that I'm going to feel the holy spirit with me and as always I do I'm glad to be a child of God even though I have to pick up the cross and walk with it daily and not everything goes the way it's supposed to go or the way I wanted to go but I know the God has a reason for everything that has happened in my life and that is happening in my life and I know that both of my parents have died a cancer I know that's not my fault and my children are both grown my daughters you know living with her boyfriend not making good choices and my son is in a disabled assistant living home where he had gotten there at the age of 21 so I've raised both of my kids by myself unfortunately my son stopped taking his medicine and he wouldn't listen to me so this state put him in assisted living program and sometimes I feel like he shouldn't be there and sometimes I'm glad that he's there so he'll take his medicine and he won't have seizures and stuff like that but of course I want him here with me but he'll just go back into not taking his medicine and I don't want that to happen so I asked for prayers for people to pray for my son and that have God look after him and keep him safe and of course I pray everyday I pray a couple times a day about my daughter and my son I wish they could both be back home I have an empty nest sort of speak right now you know I live alone and sometimes I feel alone and sometimes I cry because you know when you've been through domestic violence as much as I have and then I had to divorce my ex-husband and you have a fear of being in a relationship with somebody else you know I have you know a little anxiety little depression and they say I've got PTSD because of the domestic violence and abuse that I've went through through my lifetime and I'm happy to be a child of God because some of the stress and depression and everything can go away the minute after enduring and before the ending of a prayer sometimes after a prayer you feel like a million bucks you don't feel your depression and your anxiety you know you know your past is still your past but you're not living there in your past you know 20/20 has been a horrible year for a lot of people and I know I'm not the only person that is going through stuff so I just want to wish everybody a Merry Christmas and a Happy New year and whatever you're going through and whatever you need I hope that you get the things that you need God is a good provider he provides all of our needs and sometimes what we want but he provides the necessities that we need first

  2. According to our apostle paul’s ministry in The King James Bible,we are only saved by believing The Gospel of Jesus Christ,1st Corinthians Chapter 15 verse 1-4.Jesus Christ died on the cross,spilled His Blood for all of our sins,was buried and rose again on the third day.Jesus Christ Spilled Blood is what saves you when you believe this plan of salvation with your heart.

  3. Glad this was fielded by the YouTube algorithm today. I got sober from alcohol back in 2018, and since then I have been working to get my career back on track. I tried everything, and couldn't seem to land a job anywhere close to what I had as a kid just out of college. I really did everything. I was dogged and relentless. Hundreds of jobs. Final interview after final interview after final interview.

    Recently I was accepted to the #1 MBA program in Germany. In the time of COVID, my wife and I dropped everything and moved to Berlin. Today is our first full day. For the first time in a long time I feel scared. It's a lot of federal loans to cover tuition and our expenses. It would be easy to let my mind get off track today, but this is a good reminder. God can use me for something great; he's positioned each of us for precisely that.
