Folks, I LOVE THE LORD!

I tell ya right now that I am sooooo grateful for His mercy and grace toward me! What a mighty God we serve! What a wonderful relationship! It is such a burden off the shoulders to know that the idea isn't to try to perform good works for him, but rather to simply choose to let him do teh work through us! I Love Jesus!

Amen-what a great post!

I love Him for being there for me when I just want to give up. I would never have survived some of the things I have w/ out His love and guidance, I can honestly say that.

he's most amazing in the littlest of things. i'm gonna mention a couple stupid things that made me smile and say thanks to the lord in the past few days...

my printer wasn't working and i was fighting with it for a very long time. finally i just prayed and said "lord, please! i'm frustrated...just let it work!" the very next try it printed for me.

also, i spent quite a while preparing a post here...probably half an hour or forty five minutes...and then my parent's computer froze on me. i was angry and annoyed. i asked the lord to help and withing 10 seconds it unfroze itself..

i know those are just stupid little things, but i also know that the lord is listening when i cry out to him...

thanks for the great post, 80sU2!

I know this was posted a while ago, but I have a question.

Please, oh please, tell me why god fixes your computer but not, say, injustice, poverty and the long list of troubles in the world? I really need to know this.

He has finished everything on the cross, once and for all. All the injustice, poverty, and troubles were paid for and suffered for by Jesus.

Those small things like computer glitches are means for our faith to grow so we can pray for the much larger problems which were previously listed. At the same time, it shows the personal nature of our relationship with Him!!! He cares for the very minute details and frustrations we have.

The question is about faith. We can burn with hate and anger that God hasn't done this or that, but in reality, He's waiting for us to rise up in prayer and to go forward into the world to make a change. But, it's about Him and not us! We can't change a thing in and of ourselves. By the power of the Holy Spirit, we can see the Kingdom of God --- healing, forgiveness, peace, true joy, true love, relationship with our Dad in heaven --- come on earth.

iacrobat,

Is your question along the lines of "Why does God allow evil, suffering, etc. in the world?"

nbcrusader,

No, my question is not that.

My question is how can one perceive that god fixes your printer on demand, yet does not fix poverty and suffering on demand. To say that poverty and suffering was paid for (and somehow erradicated, rendered acceptable until the "next world"?) on the cross is offensive and utterly meaningless. Nothing is finished, to claim so is escapist.
The question was rhetorical.
God does not intervene to stem injustice any more than to change your printer cartridge.

It is mind boggling to me how one can say that god solves ones "stupid little" problems, but not the "serious big" ones.

"You may never know that Jesus is all you need until Jesus is all you have." - Corrie TenBoom (Christian Holocaust survivor)

Been there.

iacrobat, interesting perspective. I too wonder just how much and how far God intervenes in my life and in the world. I attribute all my blessings (and I have many) to God and I am thankful, but... Why ME? and why not my dear friend dying from a brain tumor or the 5 year old boy that was hit by a car, or the AIDS patient, or the American soldier blown away today in Iraq (OR the innocent Iraqi child taken too).

... and does God REALLY care who wins the Super Bowl?

Anyhow, I do not know you at all (in fact I am brand new here!!) and I may be reading your comment on the cross completely wrong, but... Jesus did NOT die on the cross to say that poverty and suffering is ok. I'm not sure that you are already telling us that, or you think that that IS the Christian belief.

... Now I'm confused.

Anyway. glad to be here.

Peace.

I disagree, too. With the bit about Jesus dying to end suffering and poverty, that is. I'm not sure how that conclusion came about, or why, or...yes. I'm confused.

It's not 'the Christian belief' though. Or, it's not my Christian belief.

I disagree with a lot of what you said...but I'm not quite clear on what you were saying to know where to start.

I Love God too! He rocks! Yes, I too look for God to help me about with stupid stuff. I just got an expander for my teeth. I say God's going to help me get through this. I wrote poetry about my love for God!

I see what you're saying....

I think the concept of God's work and what he "fixes" or not varies person to person. Honestly, when I loose my ID card and someone returns it days later, or when I think I've failed a test but the grade comes back ok - daily, personal issues like that, I'd be very reluctant to assume God's work. I'm not saying that God CAN'T be involved in or DOESN'T have control over my grades, returning lost objects, making broken things work, but for me personally, I would hope that God is not spending time on petty insignificant instances like those instead of helping those in REAL pain an suffering. I'd rather have God bring peace to someone dying of AIDS, or a starving child, than fix my computer so I can post on Interference. I don't feel like I deserve that type of attention. But that's just me

Often, my prayers are answered in ways I'd never expect, and this almost always applies to relationships. For example, after I met my current boyfriend and we starting hanging out in class, just as friends, I remember thinking, he's a really cool guy, he's exactly the type of person I'd like to go out with someday. Now, I wasn't praying for or looking for a boyfriend at the time, not to mention Phil was still going out with a girl he had been for three years and she lived accross the hall from me....but things change and we ended up together. I look back and laugh b/c when I thought, "God, he is the perfect type of man for me" I never thought I'd get HIM, I just wanted a guy LIKE him! But I guess that's God's sense of humor
