Looking Back

I remember when I was in college... feeling stressed about finals and graduation... scraping the bottom financially... wondering how I would support myself... making a commitment to spend the rest of my life committed to one person... wondering what life would be like in 5-10 years... what a comfort it was when a friend took me to the side and told me that, 


He was right. It was a comfort then to realize that simple truth and apply it... and it has been a constant comfort for the last 45 years since... and it will be for as many more years as God gifts me with life.

Happy in the Hallway

God can see things that you can't see. Everything may not make sense right now... but one day... when God's whole plan unfolds... you will understand... and you will rejoice over what God has been up to. Why wait until "Someday" to rejoice? While you are waiting for that door of understanding to open... rejoice with me in the hallway!!! -- David Guinn & the happy hallway crowd.

God has promised that if you remain faithful and obedient... He will take what has been done to cause you harm... and reconstruct it it for your good. So Shake-off any attitude of self-pity... any attitude of anger... any attitude of resentment... any attitude of revenge... or any attitude of bitterness. Your attitude should be... "I am not going to blame anybody else! Nobody owes me anything! I am anointed, equipped, and empowered by Almighty God. It is not over until God says it is over! He promises He will work things out for my good if I remain faithful and obedient. Since I have done my part... I know SOMETHING GOOD IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN... cause my God ALWAYS has the final word!!!"

"Don’t be anxious (or worry) about anything… but in EVERY situation… by prayer and petition, with 'thanksgiving'… present your requests to God" Philippians 4:6. 

If financial debt seemingly overwhelms you… prayer can bring the change to relieve the pressure. If there are family conflicts/relationships that plague you… prayer can usher in the answer of peace & forgiveness. If you have knocked on every door for a job... or a better job… prayer can make a way where there seems to be no way. If you need healing… prayer can bring the touch of the Great Physician. If your marriage needs repair… prayer can restore the commitment & love needed to strengthen your marriage. Worried about the upcoming election… do your part and vote… but prayer will bring the answer of needed leadership! Prayer changes EVERYTHING! I encourage you to begin/or increase your life of prayer… presenting your requests to God in faith. Please remember to also pray for others. God hears your prayers!

"In the day of trouble I will call to you, O Lord, for you WILL answer me." Psalm 86:7
