A. W. Tozer's Profound and Heart-Searching Quote

This is one of the most profound and heart-searching quotes I have read and I have read and collected quotes for many, many years.  This one has always challenged me.

Tragedy or Triumph...When We Don't Understand

What a tragic follow-up story to my earlier post entitled "The Answers to the Riddles".

Wife, Son and Mother-In-Law of Tampa Bay Rays Minor League Pitcher Blake Bivens Killed in Triple Homicide by Pitcher's Brother-In-Law

Emily and Blake Bivens and their son Cullen
I won't go into detail but you can read the story on the link below and the incredible article that Emily Bivens, the wife of this Tampa Bay Rays prospect Blake Bivens, who was murdered on Tuesday, August 27th published earlier that same day.

It's hard to understand but "as for God...His was is perfect." - Psalm 18-20

Please check out this link for details regarding this horrific tragedy.

Baseball Chapel, the organization responsible for providing chapel services and Bible studies for professional baseball teams, wrote the following in their prayer bulletin:

"The hearts of the Baseball Chapel family go out to Blake and his family. Blake and Emily are believers in Jesus Christ. Emily has written several devotions for Baseball Chapel's player wives devotion, a daily publication that is put out to encourage and strengthen player wives in their daily struggles. Coincidentally, the devotion below was released the day of her death."

Now take a look at this link to read what Emily Bivens, who was killed, had written earlier about praising God in the wilderness.

We often don't understand God's ways but they are always for our ultimate good and His eternal glory.

Please pray for the Bivens family.  THANK YOU!

The Answers to the Riddles

The book which has impacted my life most dramatically in recent years is a compact volume by Robert J. Morgan entitled The Red Seals Rules.  It is replete with scripture and quotes by godly men and women that help readers when facing difficult times.  I just finished reading it again this afternoon.

Morgan quotes the North Carolina author and preacher from the last century, Vance Havner, who wrote:

"When before the throne we stand in Him complete, all the riddles that puzzle us here will fall into place and we shall know in fulfillment what we now believe in faith - that all things work together for good in His eternal purpose.  No longer will we cry 'My God, why?'  Instead, 'alas' will become 'Alleluia', all question marks will be straightened into exclamation points, sorrows will change to singing, and pain will be lost in praise."

Until then the poignant words of the Englist poet and hymnwriter from the 1700's, William Cowper, will encourage me, and hopefully you, to keep trusting in a sovereign God.  Cowper penned these words...

"Judge not the Lord by feeble sense but trust Him for His grace; Behind a frowning providence He hides a smiling face.

Blind unbelief is sure to err and scan His work in vain:
God is His own interpreter, and He will make it plain."
