This is another testimony coming from "Situation Psalms" by Ray Harrison. Ray tells about a family in Yugoslavia who were filled with the passion of Jesus to get the good news of Jesus to their community and nation. They turned their whole home/house into a Chrsitian bookstore so that it could be used to print and distribute Christian literature and they themselves moved upstairs to live in the attic, with their baby and small child! Thank you Lord for this witness to devotion to you who died for us.
Mr. Harrison goes on to tell us that the lady of the house had a stroke later in life and it caused many to ask why? He says we do not know why, but God does know why. Do you know what? As I thought about this briefly a possible insight from God may have flitted across my grey matter! The idea came through that just like we humans are very fearful or disturbed by lightning striking and starting forest fires which endanger lives or by hurricanes blowing through and destroying homes- this stroke also stirs up our fears- even though God has his wise purposes. The parallel when further to point out as an earlier blog article detailed- those hurricanes help to balance out the global weather and longevity of the people and planet. Those hurricanes lift up those aerosols to the cloud cover to keep things on earth from getting to hot (the oceans) and bring more rain to needy areas. So this dear womans stroke may have lifted up praises or testimony to God's goodness into the spiritual atmosphere within hearts or for angels to see and learn from as she bore with her suffering. Hmmmm. What do you think?
