I happily enjoyed all of these books that I would happily recommend any of them.

Today is not an easy day, but I will choose to focus on the following truths about God:
- He is the Creator and Sustainor of Life. He made all things, visible and invisible for His pleasure.
- God is not a man that He should lie, nor a son of man that He will change His mind.
- Our greatest need is for salvation, and that He has already finalised on our behalf.
Yet, I will focus on God. Even today.

There are certain parts of the Bible that we read and often pay lip-service to them, without thinking much. Like the bit about suffering…we know how it encourages endurance, and builds character and all that and usually, when the biggest suffering you have had to endure is starting the day without your brand of coffee, or having to wear the same bag/shoe or not having anyone to call with the free minutes that expire that month….then you just read through it in passing. This week my very young friend lost her son after a brief illness and that feeling is just something else. I feel like I have all these questions, and stuff that I want to ask God, and when I do, I can’t even begin to imagine what my dear friend is going through.. God bless and be strong!
