This is an article that a counselor wrote for the Angels by Grace magazine I used to publish. It answers the age old question of why God allows us to suffer. I pray it brings light into some darkness in this area of our understanding.
After Carla’s husband was killed in Iraq, Carla moves to Ivy, a small Georgia beach town, with her five year old daughter. Hoping for a fresh start and healing of her heart, Carla and Missy enjoy their first few months playing in the waves, building sand castles, and their new home. Suddenly Carla notices a stranger watching her daughter intently. Who is this person and what do they want with her daughter?
Compelling. Suspenseful. Inspiring. A mixture of romance, intrigue, Christian values, and subtle tactics of Satan. A story that will keep you on the edge of your seat!
Margaret and Clay have loved raising their two ambitious daughters in their home near Atlanta. The two sisters are as different as night and day. Chris is a force to be reckoned with in the courtrooms in Atlanta as a prosecuting attorney. Teri has taken a dream job in California. Both women have a heart for helping hurting people but in very different ways. Chris is busy winning cases while Teri enjoys the beach life.

Will Teri give up the dream job and beach life for something more?
Thirteen days after the death of Sue’s husband she gave her life to Christ. Within a couple of weeks she began experiencing supernatural phenomena such as having visions, seeing angels, and hearing angelic choirs. In this autobiography she reveals the struggles, sacrifices, and suffering she went through, as she says, “in attaining an honest, faith-filled, and obedient relationship with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.”
In her soul searching account Sue recounts her roller coaster ride to acceptance of Jesus Christ as her Savior. Her difficult journey begins with baptism-a comforting place to begin- but is shadowed by the trauma of childhood sexual abuse and later by the death of her husband. The Christian life, she discovers, is like a rose garden – beautiful in every way except for the thorns. On her way to the top of the mountain of salvation she learns to do battle with the tricks of Satan. Her growing relationship with Christ gives her strength through difficult times. The valleys stretch her spiritually, and finally she knows she can walk with Jesus Christ with new boldness and confidence.
This book challenges us to look within. We all face consequences to every choice, action, and belief we have in our every day life. Those choices affect us not only on a personal level but will be passed down for generations. “Seek My Face” is thought provoking with encouragement to Christians and non-Christians. Sue invites us to take a journey of inner reflection hoping to reveal the truth about ourselves through the questions asked and the prophecies offered.

We all have times when life drags us down. Jesus has a secret place that He will show you to give you rest. He’ll meet you there and give you the rest you need. Just ask Him.
One day as I bowed upon bended knees,
I looked to Calvary, and Jesus I did see.
A crown of thorns upon His head,
And nails in His hands and feet,
Oh how He bled.
I said, Jesus, save me from my sins.
And now in my heart, He lives within.
I felt nothing but love that day
As Jesus came into my heart in a special way.
One day I will walk the streets of gold,
Because someone cared enough
And the plan of salvation I was told.
Glory to God on High
For one day I shall meet Him in the sky.
By Sandra Cole-Angels by Grace Jan. 1998
Blessings to you.

Survivors of the Benghazi terrorist attack are now coming forward, and their testimony proves the Obama–REGIME ( administration ) lied about the Benghazi attack. This week three security officials at the CIA annex spoke with Bret Bair on Fox News Channel:

I totally agree with Bill Cosby!
They found him on the other side of the lake and asked, “Rabbi, when did you get here?” Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, you want to be with me because I fed you, not because you understood the miraculous signs. But don’t be so concerned about perishable things like food. Spend your energy seeking the eternal life that the Son of Man can give you. For God the Father has given me the seal of his approval.” (John 6:25-27)

Victoria Olsteen says, “I just want to encourage every one of us to realize, when we obey God, we’re not doing it for God. I mean, that’s one way to look at it. We’re doing it for ourselves because God takes pleasure when we’re happy. That’s the thing that gives Him the greatest joy this morning. So I…
