I'll give you the first part, but not the second. Sometimes my dog just needs an ear scratching. I can wash my hands. =^.^=
Should I break into a chorus of "you ain't nothing but a hound dog"?? Lol

I dunno... James, the brother of John got executed. Paul and Peter both saw their own deaths coming. Lazarus had to die a second time.

Did God let them down?

Both Paul and Peter seemed happy about it though. Maybe the secret lies in there somewhere. Hmm...


It is clear though that sometimes faith is not enough. Sometimes you need equanimity too.

Actually, I'm not so scared anymore... Spoiler Alert: God Wins!!! HIS Righteous Justice is coming for all those who have conspired and committed crimes against humanity and HIS children... It's time to choose the side of Good vs Evil and get right with God...

I just realized this: God is real and His Word stands firm always even when we fail. He is always there to rescue us and more importantly because we are His children and He is God. :love::cool:

Howdy Ayifas and welcome to the forum.

It's surprising how much pain a person can endure if he knows it will not last long. The worst pain is the one you know will not quit.

Words of wisdom from Erica Rhodes, a comedian I've been listening to on youtube:

"I always thought by the time I was thirty I would have a husband and kids and a house and all that. Now I feel like being single after thirty is like breaking even at a casino. You didn't win big, but you also didn't lose everything on a terrible bet."
