This blog site is about expressing our belief in a God who loves us and is there for us if we come to Him and ask.

As an expression of that belief, we offer a free copy of “What the Bible is All About” to anyone who asks. You can write to us through PO BOX 15 Sandgate Qld Australia 4017. “What the Bible is All About” explains what God has done for us and who he is.

This Blog Truley believes He is Our Lord, Our Friend.

The book of Lamentations is a book of sorrows, which if read, all will be able to relate to the sorrow, the grief and even the anguish that is painfully, yet poetically painted all upon it’s pages.

Lamentations V19 “Remembering my afflictions and my misery, the bitterness and the gall.”

Yet life is not meant to be totally misery, and hopelessness. Nor is the book of Lamentations, it like all the other books in the Bible have the underlying message of hope.

Lamentations V22 “It is of the Lords mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassion will never fail.”

His compassion will never fail no matter what you have gone through, what you have done, what you have become. even though sometimes it seems that the consequences to our actions lead us to feel like God is against us, we just need to switch our perspective from the right now to the forever. There is nothing that you can or will do, that will make God dive up on you. Yet we in our mourning, trials, tribulations and lamentations are quick to point the finger of blame and walk away from the biggest fan in our corner. He cheers for us even when we’re in a losing streak and the loses are coming thick and fast. He doesn’t leave us and choose to support another team, in fact in these times He reminds us there’s hope, and even offers to get in the ring with us. But sadly, for whatever reason, in the midst of our battles we never turn back around to look for the outstretched arm waiting for the tag, to take control and enter the ring for us.

To turn around and accept that hand, to believe in him, to ask him to be the Lord of your life, means you are not alone. Even in the midst of your trials He will be offering help.

So in your time of Lamentation, take hope. Just because the sun is covered by grey clouds doesn’t mean that it doesn’t exist. It will shine again!

So why not believe Him and take the hand of the friend who will never leave?
