Jack’s Winning Words 4/23/15
“Don’t worry. God is always on time.” (Seen on Facebook) I’ve read that, in China, it’s bad luck to give someone a clock. The tick-tock sound is a reminder that life is passing away, sort of like the Grandfather Clock song. But if our faith tells us that there is life beyond this one, a gift clock isn’t such a bad idea. Today’s quote reminds us that God is always aware of our needs. A prayer hymn says, “Our times are in thy hands; O Lord, we wish them there.” ;-) Jack
FROM TARMART REV: Reminded of an old chorus once again, "God answers prayer in the morning, God answers prayer at noon, God answers in the evening, So keep your heart in tune." ====JACK: The 3rd stanza of that Sunday School song speaks to being aware of God's Time. It goes, "Jesus may come in the morning...noon...evening, so keep your heart in tune."
FROM OUTHOUSE JUDY: We have a large Grandfather clock. When Andy was little he told me he knew when I was going to die. When I asked him how he knew, he said "When the Grandfather clock stopped!" I liked that song and sang it a lot never knowing he was actually listening. God's timing is always the best even when we don't understand.====JACK: We are what we've heard and responded to.
